    No Ford Performance Parts for ST ?

    I bought a Fiesta SE to drive in the winter so the Edge can sit in a garage and now after owning the Fiesta for 3 months I love this little car so next year going to find a used 2019 Fiesta ST as my daily. Tons of mods for that car LOL....and I am sure a slightly modded ST is allot of fun The Edge ST is great for hauling the family around but I wouldn't call it fun. Maybe a tune for change my mind.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    So this weekend put about 150 miles on the Edge after the dealer did the reflash. It now shifts the way it should have from day one, it feels like it is going into each gear and it holds for a few seconds instead of just wanted to get to the top gear. After about 80 miles I turned the Sprint Booster back on and that of course helps also, Throttle response is instant just like a tune except this doesn't give any more HP just opens the TB fully and immediately.

    Took mine in yesterday for first old change and to get new flash. Only got to drive it about 8 miles to home but the shifts in both D and S seem better. I felt like it held the gears a little instead of wanting to race up to the next gear. Also the throttle response seems better not as good as Sprint Booster Box which I turned off till I get a good feel for the change but this weekend will turn it back on to get the quick pedal response back.

    19EdgeSTeve you will be a could person to tell us the difference since you know how it is tuned and how it is right now stock. Of course the LMS would have to be better in the end but can't wait to hear what you think of the tune from Ford to see if it is better not just with the trans issue but better performance. I tuned my Shelby once my warranty was over and never had an issue but this thing...sadly I don't trust it yet..and my dealer sucks if a headlight stops working he would blame it on the tune..LOL

    Let us know how it does in the snow, living in Virginia we get our share of snow but working for a school system we are closed if they even smell snow coming LOL. So doubt I take mine out in that mess but still good to know.

    Borla Exhaust Video's Edge ST

    Get tips from like advance auto, pep boys, etc. and put them on and see the difference, than once I proved my theory that the exhaust being under the car was causing the noise I went to the shop that installed and had them weld the extensions on.

    TSB Update for transmission

    So we are now getting to the halfway point in Oct 2019 has there been any real updates for the transmission and all the shifting issues that so many are having. Clunking in and out of gear, slow shifts, shifting out of gear, etc. etc. Between here and the two biggest Facebook Groups for the EDGE ST these issues are so common and either here or on FB I read that Ford Engineers are aware of the problems and working on it but it seems that was well over a month or 2 ago? So does anyone know if they have a fix and they are keeping it secret? LOL

    Sprint Booster/Pedal Commander worth it or waste of time

    Should work on your titanium I am sure the wiring harness on your accelerator pedal is the same. Also looked at your Sig your Buick GN was no joke and how do you not love a SS.. I salute you.

    Mechanical clunk when shifting to/from park/reverse

    I wonder when Ford is going to release another TSB to fix this issue and better shifting issue or have they just given up. I would think that is a Project Manager would go to the trans team that did the program and said okay fix it those guys could write the code and flash their test mule and see what it does. They could do that a couple times a week and test it but since they have known about it for months have they just given up and hope all is well I wonder about the 2020 Edge ST did they fix that programming and just not saying anything because everytime a dealer does a Flash they charge back Ford so they are keep this a secret? I which we had a email address to a live person that would give us an update. I have only had the clunk a few times since purchasing the car but the trans shifting still needs some work IMO. If aftermarket tuners can make a difference can't Ford? I mean someone on the team that is working on the GT500 or the Ford GT they must know what they are doing and I know a whole different animal and trans but someone there has to know how to fix it right ?

    Sprint Booster/Pedal Commander worth it or waste of time

    So an update on the product that is now over a month old.......STILL LOVE IT... turned it off the other day and after 2 minutes of driving turned it right back on. Night and day difference in throttle response. Basically when you go from Drive to Sport mode you feel that difference in throttle response now double that again with this box

    Is there any place on Ford's website to check to see when they have the trans update or better yet a link to send complaints to ford about these type of issues, I realize allot of these issues will be fixed in 2023 but until than they need to do something. I guess there to proud to call LMS or the like to ask them what they have done to make things better with the tune LOL
  15. This weekend bought a 1 owner garage kept Fiesta with 50K miles, 5 Speed, Moon roof, for 5K. Now it has no power but getting 40+ avg on the highway. I know it is crazy but want to keep the miles down on the ST and spare it the winter abuse. Sadly I like the ST and needed something bigger than my escape but I don't love the performance of it. Ford could have done so much more to it mainly more HP or give us boost in the lower gears and a transmission that shifted right. If the day comes and they redo it from the ground up like the explorer hopefully it becomes a 0-60 under 5 seconds I will be trading up.
