Hi All!

I was originally looking to purchase an actual PIU, but none were available locally so I got a "civi" model, but something is very odd with it, which I like.

It is a 2015, but it had 89,600 miles on it. Kind of high for a vehicle in near MINT condition!

The condition is very clean, and it has a 3.7L Twin Turbo engine in it... but the civi models only had a 3.5L motor.

From who I talked to, it's very likely the "local" PD purchased a civi model but changed the motor and such for a detective-style body. Any how... I just wanted to show off some photos.

Today, I removed the roof rack!

The antennas are fender-mounted (don't/can't have any holes drilled due to loan), lights are hood-mounted with small set screws, along with visor lights. I have side surface mount lights in the window as well and 2 light sticks in the rear window.

I have a Setina PB400 push-bumper coming later this month along with a Havis 16" console that fits right over the gear shift.

Wiring job is a bit shady now til my Havis comes in.. don't want ridiculed just yet haha
I don't think anyone is going to mind some shady wiring to get a look at a 3.7TT. Post up some pics of that beast.

There is no such thing as a 3.7 twin turbo (GTDI).
I'm going by what the dealer told me off the books lol, 15 came with 3.5 TT didnt they? Maybe that's what it is haha. Ive never owned and Explorer before

A pic of the top of the motor with the engine cover off will tell us if its a turbo or non turbo.

My sticker in the window shows "2015 4DR XLT EXPLORER 4WD" and then "3.5L V6 TIVCT ENGINE". Does the TIVCT mean twin turbo?

No...that's the non turbo. GTDI is the turbo.
Thanks for the clarification, as always, never trust a car lot. Wished I was more knowledgeable in cars haha
