I'm guessing the Power Pedal Adjustment feature.

Oh, duh! Good call.
Moves the brake pedal forwards and backwards to accommodate taller people and bigger feet. I have it on my F150 and its nice!
I love that feature, mine has it as well.
K&N Cold Air Intake
2.5" straight pipe magnaflow XL turbo mufflers
Tinted the head/tail lights
LED interior and marker/rear turn signals. Amber/White switch back signal lights
GoRhino pushbar with winch and flood light.
Added the digital speedometer to the dash (Had to get it done at ford)
Tinted the front 2 windows.
Added rear facing "dash cam" (alot of action seems to happen behind me)
Phone controlled door lock/unlock
Auto started added via forscan
Nice! Do you have a progress thread somewhere?
Do have photos of the day i got it, Then kind of how it came along.
Next project it painting it olive drab. No shine at all like the canadian forces chevy trucks. All OD except the bottom of hte bumpers/doors, trim over the wheels, mirrors and spotlight (So all the plastic will stay black) Pushbar will stay black.. Rims im on the fence about doing OD and the center caps black or just do the rims OD and leave the caps off.. iv got winter rims that are the same so if i dont like the OD on the summers i can always swap em out for the winter rims
Are the remote locks already in the PIU or do you need these from a junker as well?
Welcome to the Forum.
I think I've seen a picture of an Explorer that colour on here somewhere.
She's back from the wrap company....she gets her Setina push and pit bars next week.

What did they wrap? Just the hood? It almost looks the texture of truck bed liner. Unique.

That color is very nice
i work for a tech company and we just added a legit 2018 police interceptor to our fleet for R&D purposes. we have taken it to lunch a few times and man is it quick! all kinds of secret levers and controls too.
Every 16,17 & 18 has it. You need to by the proper FOBs (on ebay or Ford dealer) and have the alpha numeric key inside each transmitter, programmed using Ford IDS with VCN II device. I did it with my 2016. Fortunately, i have a buddy that’s a dealer tech with his own rquipment to program. Many dealerships have zero interest in custom programming, especially for PI vehicles.
Have you resolved the surging n idle issues you were having? I am having the exact same thing going on with mine that i bought 1 week ago. Wasnt sure where ti attack first. I have no check engine lights either.
Here's something fun-- in addition to a photo of my 2013 PIU since it's been in my possession, I have a photo from when it was first put into service. I already knew the agency it was from while bidding on the auction (probably even saw it around town a few times), but it was a very nice surprise to find the car's entire shop file in the front seat when I picked it up. It had thorough documentation from when it was new and its maintenance & repair history, including the Monroney window sticker. The first photo was part of their intake process, stapled to the front of the folder.
Here it is in a more recent photo, 75k miles on the odometer later.
I buy retired fleet vehicles with some frequency. Between the careful decommissioning they did and the documentation they passed along, I don't regret paying top dollar as far as auctions prices go for this one, despite having to replace all three motor/transmission mounts shortly after purchase. It was cleaner, better-documented, and still has had fewer issues, than any private party vehicle I've purchased.
What k&n air intake did u buy for it. Which car was it suposed to be for? Sence they dont make one for our interceptors. Iv been wanting to buy one but cant find the one that will fit.
Here's two quick pics of my new (to me) 2013 PIU.
I'll take more if it ever stops raining!
Strike that, still trying to embed pics.
Ok, let's try this!

I'll start a thread on this project in the PIU forum.
How much did that wrap set you back, and what kind of wrap/color did you get? That's exactly what I'm looking to do.
Just an FYI. That member hasn't been back here since he posted that reply July 29, 2017. Hopefully he is still around.
the new sports are listed at 365 horse, have they upped the PIU horsepower on the new 3.7 ecoboosts?
The Sport has been 365 HP and 350 ft-lbs torque since it came out in 2013.The Platinum is the same.
