sealed also, just a honeycomb design

 

See the photos in this listing. Also this image.

 

From the 2015 Edge Source Book:

Quote

Front Aero Curtains
• Help improve aerodynamics at high speeds
• Rotating wheels are a major source of aerodynamic drag
• Vertical slots in the outer edge of the front fascia channel air from the front of the car to openings in the wheel wells
• Air is directed across the outer surface of the wheel and tire
• The wall of high-speed air works much like a skirt to reduce drag
• SE and SEL models with 2.0L EcoBoost and FWD

from my understanding the aero curtain is behind the bumper and the black pieceimage.thumb.png.7eea43295a572a4a33d1707a2210f13f.png

The black piece does sit back more on the SE/SEL so in pics it does not always show due to shape masking from light angles, but I've never seen an edge with a hole. can clearly see this one and and this one.

There should be an opening in the bumper leading to a duct behind the bumper to direct air to the front wheel well. We don't have FWD Edges here so I can't see it personally, but have seen it on the Explorer and at some angels you can see through it from the front to the wheel well.

I had a busy day. The weather got nice enough o do some work on my new to me MKX, I started on the swirls in the black paint, polished the wheels put in a new cabin filter and LED puddle lights  and license plate bulbs. I also treated the leather inside and rinsed the motor off.

I drained my catch can for the first time yesterday at 1,000 miles. It was only about a quarter full. I Could probably get away with draining every 2,500 miles in this mild California climate. Got my G2 blue caliper paint in the mail today. Gona jack up the Edge this weekend and give a a few coats.

Over the past couple days I've been plugging away with the swirl removal project. Clay bar, Scratch X on the heavier swirls, Swirl remover, compound followed by polish and then wax. It's a lot of work, but it's looking pretty shiny. All I have left is the two driver's side doors and the driver rear fender. I'm just going to do a couple of coats of wax on the roof.

 

I want to get done with this so I can move on. I'm planning to rig up a bungee cord to hold the cargo floor up so I can get to the storage underneath, install a cargo net and the pieces to hold it down, Then an oil change. Still a lot to do after this.

Need help y’all. Does anyone know the torque values for the strut bolts?

Couple of weeks ago I went to an auto show at Galpin Auto Sports. They were celebrating  an agreement with RTR and Vaughn Gittin JR for custom Mustangs. Vaughn was there and I was able to talk to him about HPFP for the 2.7EB . He said that he believed that all the pumps are the same for but a shim was needed for the cam of the 2.7 EB. Vaughn sold all  that he made to Xtreme DI ( around 100 units  ) and told me to contact Uwe @ Xtreme DI for more info on obtaining one, I did and have had no response.

:) Here is a short video of the event enjoy.  4 Ford GT's in one place :drool:amazing.

Sweet video :thumbsup:

 

XDI HPFPs high pressure fuel pumps are a reported fit for the F150 2.7 and the Fusion 2.7, so just might fit the Edge as well.  Various vendors carry them, and they sometimes have sales on them as well.

I have been out of commission for a bit so I am just getting around to responding now. 

Thanks for the info, I have done a follow up with your leads and have come up empty. There was a rumor that someone had installed a EX DI HPFP in a 2.7EB F150. Though it is believed to fit the Edge as well as the F150 no vendor was willing to take that chance. The closest I got was "I will sell it to you but don't blame me if your engine blows up."

Put the Summer Wheels on (OEM 18" Chromes), drained the Catch Can & added some Fluid Film to the underbody while the wheels were off.

Pretty typical.  You spoke with XDI directly?  They provide any insight?  Maybe they can provide measurements to work with and you can compare it with the one on your Sport?

Ordered cheap 9012 LED headlights from Amazon. They look f*cking awesome in my projectors.

Projectors are truly underrated, versatile parts.  Although they will not create perfect beam patterns, they can create quite acceptable beam patterns.  A big step up from reflectors.

I am happy with the beam pattern. I love how much better I can see at night time. Aimed enough from factory that it doesn’t blind oncoming drivers.

Achieved this on a road trip. AFE dry flo filter & LMS 87 tune. Wasn't trying too hard, around 50 - 65 degrees with a/c off tires around 39psi. 2016 2.0 Ecoboost FWD:

I checked my BCM as-built configuration that I downloaded from Ford <snip>

I've seen this mentioned a couple of times on the forum but can't find that download anyplace on Ford.com.  Can someone please steer me with a link to the page?

Thanks!
 

BTW, the Ford site seems to be undergoing a minor overhaul and a lot of links are broken at the moment.
