Finally got around to completing my projects:
1. Tesla style tablet for the Explorer.
2. SSI performance 91 octane tune. Switched to it from the 87 tune and love it even more.
3. PowerStop Z23 drilled/slotted rotors with ceramic brakes all around.
Attempting to get the fastest NA 3.5L Explorer out there so I don't go and spend $15k getting a Sport after trade in.

Interesting. Would actually love to see a video and hear how well the system works compared to sync.
How do I post a picture? I tried the other day and it said I had to have a URL, like its hosted somewhere

Either host on imgur or buy an elite explorer membership ($20/yr or free/1 yr if you do a detailed how to and the owner of the forum approves it) to upload directly to the site.

Buying a membership is preferable as the images aren't deleted or taken down, and you get no ads plus a few other perks, as well as supporting this site.

Secure idle? Is that the same as police idle?

Could be I guess?

When you leave the vehicle running it will not allow it to be shifted out of park unless the key is in range.

Ahh you have a proximity key.

Police idle is different in that you take the key out of the ignition but the engine will keep running.

Does that also disable the Brake Shift Interlock, assuming the PIU has that feature?

Not sure, Jason would be the person to confirm that, if I remember correctly. He discovered its possible to program it.

Just some simple details I’ve done to the interior of my X lately. The James Bond mode (ejection button) I found on Amazon. When a friend gets in the passenger seat I turn on the seat heater. When they comment on thier seat getting hot I hit my James Bond play list with 50 versions of the Bond theme song from Doctor No. Then I open the sun roof then point at the ejection button and say bye. My friends love it my wife rolled her eyes and asked how old am I. The regular floor mat lettering I used fabric markers to color the lettering, it doesn’t show the dirt like the oem light gray and white does. The rubber mats are markers made for tires. The powered by Ford emblem I found on ebay and put on the fuse box cover.

Well, we just got our 2014 Sport yesterday, but today I removed the tramp stamp that the dealer put on there! Wasn't high quality... just left the car in the sun for a bit, and it peeled right off. Goof Off took care of the residue. Going to do some paint correction this weekend.

Wasn’t today, but the other day I installed my Livernois hurricane bundle and added a little custom touch to the prefilter wrap
