  1. Why is it designed like this instead of fully open? What are our options for better flow? Trying to stimulate some dialog here...
  2. It's to accommodate the automatic distance reader for the cruise control. To cut costs Ford designed just 2 grills, one to accommodate the models with block warmers and all others get this one.
  3. Starting this topic because after some tests, aka playing around N an empty parking lot dry & lightly dusted with snow, we identified that this vehicle tends 2 plow (understeer) N hard cornering... Therefore, we're N the hunt 4 the correct rear sway bar 2 mitigate this issue... So far we've established through Ford that the 2016 Edge Sport & 2017 Fusion Sport share the same front sway bar but not the rear. Why does this Info help...because there is more interest, demand & profit 4 companies 2 develop after market performance parts 4 the Fusion Sport. So since these 2 vehicles share many of the same parts there's a good chance that future Fusion Sport parts development will pave the way 4 our platforms with performance & ease of fitment parts. On that note...we have managed 2 connect with the owner of the Fusion Sport that is currently N the final stages of IC fitment at CPe 2 loan us his stock rear sway bar $ fitment R&D on our Edge Sport... I know we said that the 2 vehicles share the same front sway bars but not the rear however, since these vehicles share very similar, if not the same suspension we have reason 2 believe that the rear sway bar difference may very well just B thickness and if we validate that then hypothetically...performance sway bars 4 the Fusion Sport will be an option 4 performance handling enthusiasts like Xtra... Rules of performance designing: 1st...Controllability (gotta B able 2 control it & connect it 2 use it safely) 2nd..Stoppability (gottab B able 2 stop it...BTW my word, no jelly...lol) 3rd...Power (because it makes my testies tingle & just because we can & we prefer lots of it...lol) Until further developments... CIAO!
  4. If you feel you don't need the exotic calibers & rotors & pads that Xtra & Root have on their Sports but feel your braking system has the caliber pressure/power you require but with better pads & rotors it would be all you need then try the Power Stop Pad & Rotor kit #K7231 Comes with pads, rotors and all replacement hardware for all four wheels. I purchased mine from www.rockauto.com for under $300. after the Rock Auto discount & PowerStop rebate...
  5. The Rambo modified IC Outlet/Cold pipe is ready for market at $230 a copy. This includes basic powder coat colors & shipment. Place your orders direct to: Ramfab27@gmail.com. Notes: - Each pipe is hand fabricated and will take 7 days to produce & ship, recommend ordering ahead of time before the waiting list grows. - SnmJim & Special K are scheduling Dyno & track time after install of which results will B posted.
  6. Make us an offer for the subject boost pipe that's new, never used.
  7. Thank you for the updated purchase Info. I've passed that Info on to Speciak_K for incorporation into the next Ultimate Parts list update. Yes, we're aware that the list is outdated however, until we update the list the thread has the updates in each post...;-)

    Recommended Info update for purchasing the Rambo cold side FMIC pipe: The FMIC cold side Rambo boost pipe is no longer produced by Ramfab. Ramfab gave the tools to DTP for future fabrication. DTP said they should be up and running by next week. DTP email: DTPfabworks@gmail.com

    2016 Sport 2.7 BOV

    Lets start off with HAPPY NEW YEAR!... I realize that many of you have been patiently waiting for this information but unfortunately there are those who can find the time to take what we have to offer but can't find the time to give back. That being the case here, to spare you any further delay I'm going to at least provide the pics and highlight in red the areas of focus.

    We pressure wash our engine bays twice a year, at the beginning of Spring & Fall. The BOV studs R removed with a typical Torx star female bit socket.

    Couple FMIC questions before I pull the trigger.

    Please share your findings. We'd specifically like to know if the FMIC for the 2015-2018 is the same for all ST years?

    FYI Validated engineering fact: U will not increase the cold air intake volume if the stock air box, or any air box 4 that matter, design is dependant upon drawing cold air through the stock oval opening that the cold air initially enters the box through. U MUST either increase the size of the oval cold air inlet point or add an additional intake point into the box. This fact has been validated repeatedly by SNMJim and Special K (JC Perf Dvlp).
