    Lockpick Air for 2016

    Coastal tech says it must be a problem with the unit not resetting its wifi signal. I was going to swap this one out for another one but apparenly I got one of the last ones they had available. It looks like I am stuck waiting on the new version to come out. Anyone here tried using a usb to...

    Instructions say it is perfectly compatible with s5 and plenty of people running it on mft, check some Youtube videos.

    Lockpick Air for 2016

    Well I spent about 4hrs messing with this last night. The Lockpick air seems to work for video and other cameras being hooked to the factory nav screen but I couldnt get the aux input sound to play. Also there must be a problem with the unit I received. The wifi only comes on sometimes then...

    Traded my 13 XSport for a 16

    Yes I did the Lamin X on the headlights and fogs myself. Color is tint on hl and smoke on the fogs if you are on the Lamin X site. Its pretty easy to install just clean the lenses real good and apply the film wet, heat any bubbles out with a heat gun on low. No I didnt think I needed the...

    Traded my 13 XSport for a 16

    I used the really light tint on the headlights, it protects them from chips and hazing. The fog lights I did darker because I have really bright HIDs in there anyways and I like the blacked out look in the daytime. It really just made the hid light from the fogs match the led light from the...

    Traded my 13 XSport for a 16

    I like some of the new features of the 16. The powerfold 3rd row and the pushbutton flip and fold of the 2nd row is great. Having actual buttons for the climate controls vs. using the touchscreen for everything on the 13 is better. I like the led headlights also on the 16. It seems to drive...

    Traded my 13 XSport for a 16

    Traded my 13 sport for a new 16 sport last weekend. I picked up the 16 with 401A, power moonroof, and 2nd row buckets in magnetic grey. I threw my cold air intake on as soon as I got it home along with my husky liners. I tinted the windows, added 8k HIDs to the foglights, tinted the headlights...

    And you Thought our 13-15 tuning was good!?!

    I traded my 13 X Sport for a 16 X Sport 2 weeks ago. I put my cold air intake on the 16 and it still feels like my 13 was way faster. I just rolled 1k miles last night, I hope it gets a little better as it breaks in. Can't wait to pick up your 16 tune. Do you offer a performance 87 tune for...

    My 13 Explorer Sport

    It is the tint, not gunsmoke. I got gunsmoke for the foglights but it didnt fit right cause it was cut for the regular explorer. They are sending me some new film out for the foglights. The film is pretty easy to install. I have this on all my vehicles and it keeps the headlights looking new.

    My 13 Explorer Sport

    Plasti Dip Wheels + Puddle LED Install

    They are actually 31mm Festoon bulbs. I just installed mine tonight and they were a bit of a pain. Once I removed the assembly I had to take a dremel and cut the housing apart to get the lens off and get to the bulb to replace it. I then changed the bulbs and sealed the lenses back to the...

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    I havent had any issues with the k&n yet. I didnt reset my computer when I installed it either. Did you guys happen to go over all your factory hose clamps on your charge pipes and over all turbo piping? I found severAl factory clamps that were pretty loose all around the engine bay. Maybe...

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    The plate that comes with the k&n redirects the air towards the filter on the right side of the engine bay. I made a trip today with this intake and I am now getting a little over one more mpg then I was before.

    The shield that is with the K&n actually directs the air towards the filter.

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    I just know from dealing with other turbo vehicles that it makes a difference. Especially once you get tuned for it. I guess I should have done some before and after gtech pulls...oh well. Intakes Ive installed on my other vehicles have always increased mileage too.

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    I would also like to add that I went over all of the factory hose clamps on the plumbing and some were pretty loose. Everyone should be sure to go over these with an 8mm driver. I know i read a thread here about someones piping coming loose.

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    Well here is the first K&N Typhoon intake to be installed on a Sport. The fit was spot on and I had zero issues. I love that it came with a metal deflector to direct cold air to the filter. Can here the turbos spooling now.

    Definitive Cars - 13' Sport Project Build

    Yeah it is special order only at my local Home Depot and also at local Slowes. I just pulled my puddlelights and in order to do the led swap we are going to have to either bake the housing at around 150 in the oven or else hack them apart and silicone them back together. I did find some puddle...

    Definitive Cars - 13' Sport Project Build

    I just ordered the front and rear. I will do that and plastidip my rear sport logo as soon as it warms up. I cant find plastidip anywhere locally anymore. They used to carry it everywhere. I guess I will just order it from dipyourcar.com. I think I have one old can in the garage from some...

    Problem with HID in fogs...

    Sounds like a ballast issue to me. Swap your ballast from the one that is causing the trouble with the ballast that is working properly and see if the problem moves to the other side.

    My 13 Explorer Sport

    Well here she is. The first pic is the day we picked her up. The second one shows my only mods so far. I installed the Husky Liners front, 3rd row, and the cargo area. I tinted the front windows and added a windshield strip. I also tinted the headlights with Lamin-X film. I still need...

    Cold Air Intake (CAI) Discussion

    Looks sweet! I actually ordered the k&n typhoon intake for the SHO for my Sport tonight. Hopefully it will fit just as well as the airraid. How is the sound with the Airraid? Can you hear the turbos spool now and the sound of the dv releasing? Ive never had any trouble with heat on my...

    Bad or Burnt Exhaust smell in cabin during hard acceleration.

    My dealer said they didnt smell it and that since I only had 500 miles on it, it is the smell of the coating on the exhaust. I even showed them the tsb and they treated me like Im an idiot. Im sure I reallly wanted to get up early on my day off and take my brand new 50 k car into the dealer...

    Fog lights 3000K Hid or yellow tint?

    I got all my HID kits for my vehicles from DDM Tuning. They have lifetime warranties on all their kits plus they are cheap. I have a few ballasts go out, but they have always replaced them with no hastle.
