    K&N CAI/OEM Swap

    What sucks more swallows more. I'll stick with the factory paper filters and the superior filtration they provide.

    Weird Noise When Opening Doors

    It does it even when the key fob is in the house in my case. It's a light clank noise and doesn't sound like a pump pressurizing to me but I could be wrong.

    Oil consumption - 2016 Sport

    Taking a vehicle in for a diagnosis with a tune file installed is grounds for warranty denial. Whatever the root cause is it wont be covered by Ford .Typically the dealership will choose not be complicit.

    clicking, tapping noise

    Just read up on the British Seagull. Not an outboard motor guy but I've owned several 2 strokes. My dad once owned a 1959 DKW car. It had a 3 cylinder 2 stroke for a power plant. It sounded wild when on the boil.

    Weird Noise When Opening Doors

    Okay that sounds more plausible than the fuel pump priming based on the sound I'm hearing. It's a light metallic clanking sound. What I want to know is why it's so random. It occasionally does it when I exit the car, enter the car or when I'm near the car, when I walk into the garage, etc.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    Always a good practice for all automatic transmission equipped vehicles. It's hard on the parking pawl to park on an incline/decline without engaging the E-brake first.

    Weird Noise When Opening Doors

    Nautilus does it too. It sounds like a faint metallic clank. Does it at odd intervals. Walking near the vehicle triggers it sometimes. You'd think the dealer would be more up to speed on their product and would be able to offer a better explanation on what it is and what it does.

    Livernois Tune Options

    I'd rather work with tuners that support SCT software and have no problem waiting for that to happen...….even it doesn't.

    Livernois Tune Options

    AFAIK they store you're factory strategy and can upload it to you if things go wrong. Not a fan of their proprietary minimalistic programmer.
  10. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now. I totally agree on it being a big improvement.

    G2 Edge Sport Catch Can

    I finally got around to installing a spare UPR 4 stage catch can on my Nautilus. The mounting bracket is made from 6061-T6 1/4'' plate and 3/4'' Delrin round stock. Stainless steel 1/4'' NPT street elbows and 1/4'' NPT to 5/8" barbed fittings are used on the catch can. The Ford 90* fittings are leftovers from a supercharger install. I went with grip lock fuel/oil hose, same as what UPR use for their plug & play systems. I gave Gates shrink clamps a try for this project and highly recommend them. They give the hose assemblies a factory made look. This can is smaller in diameter and longer in length than a JLT can and that's why I located it where it is. An upside to that is unobstructed access to the oil filter. I'm into it for just under $ 40 not including the catch can cost. Output side is nice and dry after 1,200 km.

    Splash guards installed on 2019 ST

    Not that bad of a fit once all is said and done. ST looks real sharp in Magnetic Gray 👍

    Edge ST MPG

    I just went through my first tank and averaged 11.4L per 100 km. (20.63 MPG) calculated. That was approximately 70% city driving. I'm sure it will get better as the motor breaks in. I filled up with 91 octane (no grain) and will see if it improves any.
