  1. AFE is backordered on everything. If anyone has one they want to part with, please hit me up. I have a project to do to it and nothing to work off of. Steve

    The Ultimate 2.7TT Aftermarket Parts Thread!

    Who doesn't appreciate your efforts? When the ST came into play, things seem to slow down a bit of course some of that is Facebooks fault. I hate that platform. The ST community is not quite as large as the Sport crowd even though we are hitting 3 years of production now but that will be ending and I am thinking along with any aftermarket support too. Better get what you can now while you can, right? I think everything you all did was cool as hell especially for a crossover platform. And to share it with all the other folks is great, you didn't have to either. I appreciate everything you and others have done on this site and I just barely got into this 4 months ago. I am curious of the next venture and will keep my eyes open for that. Steve

    The Ultimate 2.7TT Aftermarket Parts Thread!

    I took this as a little picture of something they just got and can't wait to install it. Simple enough. I took this as a message to SC_ST asking how it went and how it works. Probably best to PM as not everyone comes back these posts quickly. And to be honest, there was no need to post this question,as in my honest opinion it was not directed to anybody except SC_ST as he was quoted. Now, the rest of the squabble is pure BS. So just end it now.

  6. Any real world testing from your current buyers or by yourself? Performance wise?
  7. It sounds like you have a test ST already,

    Exhaust issues

    I have not had that issue. But any leaks from the exhaust should be considered dangerous wouldn't you agree? Unless it is isn't that bad.

    Went to dragstrip with my 2019 Ford Edge ST

    Ran today at the strip as this was the last day of the year. Weather was nice and calm of course cooler temps which help. Now the only change to the Edge was a K&N panel filter and the runs were with an E30 tune. Albuquerque Dragstrip - Albuquerque, NM. - Altitude 5300'. DA 6700'. Temperature 68'. Traction control off and in Sport Mode 1/2 tank of fuel 13.86ET @99.43mph w/2.06 60ft. time. A lot of the performance gains is from the filter and cool weather. I am not impressed by the tuner so going to go with someone else. The next tuner will get to enjoy tuning with all the parts I am installing finally but for next year. I will do plenty of Dragy tests though to get it right.
  11. The Granatelli name has been around a long time. When I was looking to supercharge my Mustang II back in 88, I got to meet Joe Granatelli, Jr. and toured the place with Jim Middlebrook who at the time was an engineer there and he showed me the gear driven Vortech supercharger while at Paxton. This was a Paxton product in all reality but Paxton did not like the noisy supercharger so dropped it. Jim Middlebrook grabbed the rights and started Vortech Supercharger in 1990 and the rest is history. Good times..... The turbos sound nice. I am lookin at possibly a Stage 3 here in the near future. Thanks for the update.
  12. That is quick as heck. What tuner do you use if you don't mind me asking? I am slow at 5.60s @79mph with an E30 tune even though I am in a 2019 ST. It seems to be a conservative tune. And am I stiil in the works of trying the airbox on my ST?

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    I can tell you what gains in the qtr mile you may see from 86 octane to 91 octane. Here is what I saw with all things being pretty much equal as far as weather, DA, heat under the hood, etc. and completely stock "Not Tuned". 14.90ET @90.76mph - 86 octane - 1/2 to 3/4 full gas tank full of fuel 14.59ET @93.21mph - 91 octane - 1/2 to 3/4 full gas tank full of fuel 14.48ET @94.27mph - 91 octane with VP Racing Octanium Octane booster - 1/2 to 3/4 full of fuel 14.37ET @95.13mph same as above but with a K&N replacement panel filter - 1/2 to 3/4 full of fuel These are "Tuned" runs on higher octane and a blend with the K&N air filter above and conditions are better than above runs: 13.98ET @98.77mph - 108 racing unleaded fuel mixed with 91 pump at a 70/30 ratio respectively - 1/4 tank full of fuel 13.89ET @99.43mph - E30 blend -- 108 racing unleaded mixed with E85 measured potency of E70 - 1/4 tank to 1/2 tank full of fuel I am honestly not impressed by the tunes. This thing should be in the mid 13s or close.
  14. @Xtra I am so sorry this happened to you. So frustrating to try and keep a vehicle in good shape, etc. Hope all goes well with it all.
