  1. Awesome to hear that the install went well for you. I plan on installing my h&r springs next week and this is the write up I was going to use. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wQ3WRD6zvzHaAbxE3hCZpyKIwbBI3-Gs/view , from this thread https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/22579-hr-sport-springs-on-g2-edge-sport/?page=7 Is this the same one that you used, any issues or tips? Also, can you post some pics from the side and front. I am curious how much the wheels/tires are tucked in due to lowering and if I'll need to use wheel spacers to compensate.

    2019 Edge ST amplifier install

    Good informative video. I just wanted to note that there is also a spot on the drivers side firewall, behind and below the battery to run the wire (battery must be removed). I have 1/0 gauge wire running through it to the back. It is important to note that you want to have protection around the wire as it goes through the firewall. I put a hole through the middle of the existing grommet. If the amp wire is laying against the metal hole through the firewall, it could overtime wear through the wire's shielding and eventually come into contact with the metal. This also brings up the importance of making sure the amp wire is properly fused. I have an extensive audio build log over on diymobileaudio.com for those that may be interested. https://www.diymobileaudio.com/threads/2019-ford-edge-st-build.417123/

    For Those that have Tuned The Edge ST

    I filled up with 93 octane and installed the LMS performance tune for the first time yesterday and Wow! The ST just wants to go, the traction control light is always flashing and I'm hardly pushing it.

    The day is near. I'm just waiting for Livernois to send me the performance tune so I can upload it. 😀

    2.7 Ecoboost Dyno Record

    Who have you submitted it to? Are you looking to get royalties. Have you looked into crowd sourcing?

    2.7 Ecoboost Dyno Record

    This is why somebody needs to find out what it can do. BTW apparently LMS has an updated tune for the ST that is pushing more power.

    Congrats! Now somebody needs to do something like this to an ST!

    For Those that have Tuned The Edge ST

    Perfect! Have you done any other mods? What air filters are you using?

    For Those that have Tuned The Edge ST

    It might sound counter intuitive but I'm curious about the gas mileage you get when running the 93 performance tune and driving normal.

    Congrats! Performance Blue is a beautiful color on the ST!

    Lowering the ST

    Thanks for the feedback. I was concerned that the ride would be too harsh. The ST looks a lot better when lowered and sitting level, especially with that rear fender gap. I'm not sure if I'll put them on myself or not but it looks like there's a good write up here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wQ3WRD6zvzHaAbxE3hCZpyKIwbBI3-Gs/view from this thread. https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/22579-hr-sport-springs-on-g2-edge-sport/?page=7 I have installed lowering springs and coilovers on previous vehicles and they are always a bit of a pain in the butt. I don't have the time I used to, plus it's winter out and I don't have a heated garage, so I may just have a shop do it this time. Otherwise I'll wait until warmer weather, but In the meantime, I'm going to get the LMS tune and have some fun with that.

    Lowering the ST

    Bumping this thread up. I'm contemplating lowering my ST with the H&R springs. The H&R website list part# 28759-2 as being compatible with 2015-2020 models, appears to be the same springs that they've offered for awhile now. Has anybody tried these on the ST yet or have any feedback?
  13. I wanted to start a comprehensive list all of the new features and improvements that were made to the ST as compared to the outgoing Edge Sport. Feel free to list anything I may have missed or more details on what I have listed. Updated, more modern front and rear fascias. Gloss mesh grill (40% more airflow than titanium), LED High & How beams, LED Fog Lamps, Integrated LED DRLs, updated LED tail lights, revised inverted hood (annoying humps on left/right side of old hood are gone). Increased HP and Torque (+20 hp, +30 ft-lb). The quickest ST sold to public so far. New Eight-speed automatic, quicker & smoother off the line acceleration (performance tuned for ST) Intelligent All-Wheel Drive Disconnect Engine Auto Start/Stop Increased real world gas mileage, +2 mpg city/hwy/mixed Performance Brake package, 21" gloss black aluminum wheels, larger front vented rotors and front pistons, red calipers, high friction pads, vented brake shields & Brushless Radiator cooling fan. (package removes spare tire and replaces with flat tire kit) 21" gloss black aluminum wheels are optional without brake package Larger solid sway bars, Monotube shocks in rear, stiffer springs 15% f / 20% r. less body roll without sacrificing ride quality Torque Vectoring Control AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability and Curve Control) Performance tuned suspension Slightly heavier steering feel (adaptive steering removed) New front seats with improved side bolstering, ST logo & stitching Co-pilot 360 (BLIS w/ Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise with stop & go, Lane keeping, Pre-collision assist with automatic braking, Evasive Steering) Thicker leather wrapped steering wheel with white stiching Bang & Olufsen sound system (very noticeable improvement over previous Sony system) Rotary Gear Shifter with Sport button (frees up interior space, easier to use) Wireless charging pad Ford Pass connect with WiFi Hotspot Ford+Alexa use Amazon Alexa from the road Integrated Tow package is standard (factory tow package was not available on previous Sport models) Rear camera washer (seems insignificant but this is awesome, especially if you drive in snowy conditions) Brighter LED rear backup light, improved rear camera visibility at night (prior models were noticeably dim) Interior door handle LED lights change color to red when headlights are on and doors open. (I assume it's to help alert oncoming traffic. did not notice if this was on the sport or not)

    Edge ST features & improvements over Edge Sport

    I noticed a nice feature that I don't think my Sport had. When the front wipers are activated and you shift into reverse the rear wiper will activate to clear the window. The first time or two this happened I thought I may have accidentally activated the rear wiper or left it on. Now I know! :)

    Borla Has An Exhaust the ST Finally :)

    Anybody else getting one? I would love to hear a sound clip. Hopefully there's no drone at cruising speeds.

    Nice. Thanks for sharing.

    "Ingot Silver" ST pictures anyone?...

    The body lines really pop in that Silver color.

    Do it! The ST is worthy of an upgrade.

    Your Price

    Sounds like you got a good deal. Mine was about 5500 below sticker.

    So Is All The Youtube Videos True

    These are a few things that threw a bit of a wet blanket on the ST's debut. Some of the negativity comes from the sticker price. The Edge is now over $50K, the artificial barrier that many people have in their heads, and when they hear that a Ford Edge can cost OVER $50 GRAND! they go bananas imagine pitchforks and torches. What is rarely mentioned is that nobody pays MSRP. With dealer incentives and rebates your looking at 5K -7K less than MSRP, maybe more. Funny how the old Edge Sport could sticker at nearly $49K and reviewers wouldn't make a fuss about it. It's all about perception. Yes, the ST does cost more than the Sport did but it also offers quite a bit more IMO. 0-60 performance - when MT and C&D couldn't record a 0-60 time faster than the outgoing Sport, it was bad publicity. The ST should have been faster. Instead of .1 sec faster it was .1 sec slower. Enough to question the "ST" badge. Blame in on turbos, break-in, transmission mapping whatever, Ford dropped the ball on this. Maybe the Sport was just that good. Forget that the ST handles better, brakes better, and is better in just about every other aspect . The piped in exhaust sound. Practically every review harped on it, made fun of it. snickered. Enough though that Ford removed it. The paddle shifters are a joke. Period.

    Explorer ST Build And Price

    $60k, when the Explorer ST equipped similarly to a loaded Edge ST. Not too bad if it performs well. My guess would be dealer price, after rebates / incentives, will be mid to high $50's. However, I still prefer the exterior styling of the Edge ST a lot more than the Explorer.

    So Is All The Youtube Videos True

    Compared to the old 6-speed in my 17 Sport the new 8-speed is an improvement in every day driving. What I noticed most, for the first week or two, was off the line acceleration is smoother and quicker. Now I'm used to it. In S mode the transmission is aggressive and hold gears when needed. The shifts aren't super quick but they're fine for me. I tried out the paddle shifter once and haven't used them since. I just keep it in automatic and put it in S mode when I want to have a little fun.
