    This was my first road trip literally right after the install the day prior. I averaged 80mph on cruise control most of the trip but was heavy footed on stretches opening her up on the highway. I just wish that my dash cam didn't loop over the parts where I was "racing" her.

    This is the next step which was order yesterday:
    Steeda Explorer Adjustable Rear Sway Bar (2011-2019), 555 1025

    Then I'm going to replace the shocks with Homepage - BILSTEIN

    Might as well have fun with her :p

    Isn’t it funny how the dash cam just happens to loop over the good parts! That swaybar should really inhance your ride since you’re already lowered! Hopefully someday you’ll have time to take her to the track and really give her a workout. Thanks for the link to the Steeda adjustable swaybar it looks like a good addition but right now I would be happy if the dealership would get my new toe link in. By the way how are those power stop rotors holding up?

    PowerStops are holding up fantastic but with the new ST out, I'm asking Ford if the Brembo Brakes are now available for the 16 models!

    Whoa!! Now that would be sweet. I just had my 30,000 mile service and my service adviser tried to convince me it would be more expensive because I have two turbos ( his words) Then he proceeded to argue with me when I told him my X has no turbos it’s an XLT with the sport appearance package and opened the hood to show him. So I’m afraid he and others there would be clueless about wether the Brembos for the ST would fit. He also told me later that I needed a new air filter with the service it was very dirty... I have an cai...again didn’t know wether to laugh or get mad! So long story short please let us know what you find out, thanks.

    I've wanted some molded floor mats but am a cheap a$$ and didn't want to spend the money for weathertechs. Decided to give an ebay set a shot. Pleasantly surprised. Once they relax and warm up they should fit perfectly.

    Had the Steeda sway bars installed the other day. Already have 700 miles on them. What a difference in handling!!!

    What?! What is that?! I obviously didn’t think about that.

    Installed my P3 ported upper and lower intake yesterday.

    P3 Performance Intakes

    Flashed the stock tune back in for testing before hand. Still driving it to get the fuel and spark trims adapted, but so far there is a 0.24 second drop in 0-60.

    0.36 seconds off of my 0-60 now. Would have been more but I forgot to turn the AC off.

    Got the rear toe link recall done today as well.

    Once the TB goes to 100% yes. It's that tiny transition that lost time.

    jonnoriega - I am considering a cargo carrier on my 2018 Sport. I am glad to hear that you had no problems with 90lbs in your carrier. Are you using the OEM cross bars? If not, which one did you choose? I too have the dual sun/moon roofs and hearing about the bouncing some have mentioned, it has me nervous. I will PM you as well, but I am responding here in case your information can benefit others..

    Thanks,
    Bill

    OEM Cross Bars, my friend. They do the job nicely. A bit pricey though but if you shop around you can get a deal. I did from my dealer. He gave me 20% off.

    Having a little fun today with my girl. I love it when certain cars challenge me. She may not be super fast but she holds her own quite nicely. Have to thank @Livernois for the tune.
