    The Ultimate 2.7TT Aftermarket Parts Thread!

    Recommendation: Add the Xtreme-DI HPFP to the list since it's tested & proven. Not sure of the p/n however here's the link: http://www.xtreme-di.com/product/xdi-hpfp-ford-nano/ Note: Recommend holding off on the injectors until we've tested & proven them...

    Downpipes (2016 Edge Sport)

    That is totally incorrect! We've been running Catless for at least a year using o2 defoulers and have had no o2 related codes and have no problem going through emissions inspections. Note: we've Tuned for 87, 93, e50 & e85 without o2 codes...👍😉🤙

    Downpipes (2016 Edge Sport)

    GET THEM WHILE AVAILABLE!!! I was able to persuade Zury Fabrications to produce a couple sets of 2.5" catless, downpipes with taper to fit the stock exhaust Sys. I'll confirm o2 bung placements are in easy access positions and maybe get him to include o2 defoulers for those of you concerned with emissions testing compliance. I might even be lucky enough to have him ceracoat them for extra heat management...👍👍👍 Should be available for purchase in 2 Wks. Who will be the first 2 to commit??? SpecialK: if these 2 sets aren't committed in 2 Wks please post them on the Edge FB page.

    Injectors, 2016 Sport TT 2.7 eco boost

    The HiPo injectors we're waiting on are by our fueling sponsor (Xtreme-DI) who will be making them specifically for the 2.7 TT eco bosst. So far Xtreme-DI's fuel pump has pushed the fastest documented F150, Edge Sport & Fusion Sport to World records. Recommend following Xtreme-DI & ZGF Racing on Instagram, they collaborate on many World record projects.

    Not sure if you understood that the injectors we ended up installing are the stock Ford injectors while we wait for the Xtreme-DI injectors to come available in May.

    No, they won't be available until May so we had to put something in.

    For a complete set of 6 Ford stock injectors and supporting parts $625
  11. Injector Insight: If your pushing the ponies with a Tune, especially if you've added a High Pressure Fuel Pump (HPFP), then you'll want to read more... Lets get this part out of the way now because it's always the most frequently asked question for us. We're at 82k and have tried 5 Tuners of which hands down we've had the best experience and results with ZFG Racing (Tuner) and XTreme-DI (fueling). The life expectancy of a stock set of injectors is said to be anywhere from a life time to 100k miles of which BTW 100k is considered to be the numerical value of one average automotive life time. However, that's running a stock Tune and under average driving conditions. Now if you've decided to Tune for e50 your still good with the stock HPFP and injectors however...if you're Tuning for e85 your going to demand a significantly higher fuel rail & injector pressure therefore, you'll need to install a HPFP. Your stock injectors will do just fine but you'll have to accept that you might only get half the life expectancy (50k) because you'll be working them harder with higher fuel pressure demands. On that prelude note we will proceed with the point of the topic: We've been performing R&D Tuning with stock Ford injectors over the past 2-3 years with great results however, after successfully Tuning for 87 & 93 octanes and e50 we moved on to e85. We installed the XTreme-DI HPFP in conjuction with the stock Ford injectors which proved to be very successful. While refining the e85 race Tune we finally began to experience injector sticking at 82k. So we went to our fueling sponsor (XTreme-DI) for a set of HiPo injectors but unfortunately they weren't going to have the set we needed for three months so we elected to proceed with another set of Ford stock injectors but of course after in depth cross referencing other higher preforming Ford injectors of which there were none we could be certain would be a direct replacement. So since the fueling demand was achievable and sustainable with the stock injectors we decided to accept the half life consequence for now. We also decided that once the XTreme-DI HiPo injector set came in we'd swap out the stock set since the job is much easier than it looks, as long as you adhere to the Factory Service Manual (FSM). In summary the job is just a matter of detaching connectors and attachment points and simply manipulating wires and hoses out of the way, not removing, to facilitate intake manifold removal. Notes: - You do not need to remove intake and charge air pipes, just disconnect them from the intake manifold attachment points to facilitate the intakes removal which is best done towards the passenger side of the car. - The intake valves were surprisingly clean, equivalent to naturally asperated, given all the hype about coking on the back sides of the valves due to direct injection, however we suspect that installing the catch can at midlife may have contributed. - We do not recommend refurbishing old injectors for HiPo applications - We recommend replacing in sets due to batch Spec disparities - New injectors come as a complete ready to install Assy, better than dealing with O-rings and directional retainers - Recommend replacing intake gaskets (x6) - Must use NEW injector clips to maintain proper tension on injectors Here's some Pics:

    K, Here's one of your finds I think is worthy of the list, unfortunately not tested nor proven: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ABS-Front-Bumper-Grille-Honeycomb-Grill-Vent-Grid-Refit-For-Ford-Edge-2015-2018/362850116515?fits=Year%3A2018|Model%3AEdge|Make%3AFord&epid=8035770920&hash=item547b8d63a3:g:Ig0AAOSwaW1d9KMI

    Downpipes (2016 Edge Sport)

    UPDATE!!! On behalf of FEF Members I personally contacted Zury Fabrications with a WTF Dude and here's what he's going to do for 2016-2019 Edge Sport owners but remember FIRST COME FIRST SERVED! Zury statement: Sorry, been going through emails to see who actually had serious injuries...a lot of them were asking about exhaust with it. I've also had another issue come up where the vendor we use for cats is no longer producing them. Been trying to source another brand. Here's what I can do, I can make a couple noncatted sets and put them up for sale. There just hasn't been enough serious inquires that would be worth the time and money to buy parts and make them. Give me two weeks and we will have a few sets. SNMJim Note: I requested he keeps me updated as to his progress with fabricating a catted set or 2 of which I'll Fwd that Info to FEF once it comes available...👌😉👍

    Downpipes (2016 Edge Sport)

    For custom eTuning I'd go with ZFG Racing, hands down! Out of the 5 Tuners we've been through, which includes all that you've mentioned, ZFG has done an outstanding job working with us to get the platform through some major barriers and to it's record breaking status...👍👍👍 NOTE: This is one of the most complex ECUs to Tune therefore you must have a well seasoned Edge Sport Tuner who knows the pecularities of this specific platform and can safely push it. Thank you again ZFG!
