  1. Well right now nothing to discuss as it is in my mind and not so much on paper. I don't like to say anything about stuff I do until I follow through with it. Otherwise I look like the fool, I hope you all understand. Don't worry, I will share.
  2. I personally do not want that secondary air inlet. I am working something else for this airbox.
  3. I would be happy to put on my own insulation. Done it to several vehicles for many friends over the years.
  4. Acetone is great for preparing surfaces for any adhesive. I usually use that a lot but since I go through it so fast and didn't have it handy I had to use what was available (Isopropyl alcohol) which is also excellent for plastic.
  5. This is a PSA for the 2019+ Edge ST. If you are looking to use the GFB DV+ bypass valve, you more than likely will not be able to use any of the current valves such as T9358 for your Edge. Come to find out, these were changed by Ford where you cannot disassemble them to utilize the GFB DV+ components like you would with the older Sports. From what it sounds like though, you may be able to retrofit an older one to the new Edge as the dimensions are the same, etc. I just do not know the difference in the electronics if that matters. The 2 first pics from my 2019 ST and the last photo from a 2018 Edge Sport. I guess they call the old valves Pierburg and the new valve Continental.

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    I will be honest too, the 91 octane tune is pointless in my opinion. I am not having a lot of luck with the 93+ tune either. Or maybe I expect too much? Right now from my previous tests, this is what I have gotten with the Dragy: Stock tune, 91 octane with octane booster, 80' F at night at the strip 5300' altitude, basic 20 min cool down - 14.37ET @ 95mph 91 tune, 91 octane with octane booster, 78' at night on a Mexico street 5800' altitude, basic 20 min cool down - 14.42ET @97mph 93+ tune 1st ver, 91 octane mixed around 60/40 with 108 race fuel, 60' at night on a Mexico street 5800' altitude, 30 min cool down w/ water spray of intercooler(ambient temp when run starts) - 14.06ET @99mph 93+ tune 2nd ver (2'), 91 oct mixed around 60/40 with 108 race fuel, 60' at night on a Mexico street 5800' altitude, 30 min cool down w/ water spray of intercooler(ambient temp when run starts) - 13.99ET @99.30mph I am going to the strip tomorrow and will be running a stronger blend of 108. Should be more like race fuel 70/30 with pump plus it will be like mid 70s and sunny. The reason I want a higher ratio is because I had an odd run where KR knocked a ton of timing out which killed power a lot in the midrange. Same night same conditions, etc. Tuner thinks octane is probably not where I think it is. How did I get a good run then a bad run? Data logs showed conditions actually slightly better on the run where timing pulled, Something does not make sense. I need to really study the logs to see if I am missing something.
  7. @Xtra I have used DEI Reflect-A-Gold on my Hayabusa airbox. It has the same type of sticky backing and works probably as good or maybe better than you experienced. I really cleaned the plastic well with Isopropyl alcohol. Still not perfect but unless you want to put on a more permanent glue, it works well enough. It worked reflectiing heat as per my not quite scientific findings. I will be trying a new reflective tape that is supposed to be better but I have my doubts. I got it for the stock airbox originally but will try it on the new box. EDIT: Found some pics
  8. I have had heated debates about T bolts and their use. I personally prefer the worm clamp style but not your normal ones. I have used these for quite awhile with great success. https://www.flatironstuning.com/turbosmart-murray-constant-tension-clamps

    GFB DV+

    Has anyone installed one of these GFB DV+ on their 2019+ Edge ST? I can't even get started as the factory plunger itself will not budge on mine. I worked it hard without using a screw driver or pliers as everyone else with an older Sport or Fusion simply use their fingertips to pull it apart. Is this different or should I grow some huevos and rip it out? Steve

    I only have 91 where I live. I have to add a good octane booster to get close to 93 but it does certainly help. I am right now going to run an unleaded 108 race fuel with my 91. Should be equilvilant to around 98 to 100. Tune going in now and will test and data log.
  11. Great!!! Now this item will cost at least $5k each. Way to go man! 😭
  12. So the V3 will be complete from lid, airbox, adapters and air filter? I can see the price being up there for sure but I would be inline to get it as well.

    Went to dragstrip with my 2019 Ford Edge ST

    I need to see if the paddles are worth using now. Before it was pointless as it would shift when it wanted to no matter where I shift. Like a 300-400rpm lag. Seems more of a toy gadget to bring out the testosterone of middle to old age men. Maybe it works now but I doubt it.

    I had to look at the paperwork. It is the 20-2190 TSB
