    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Zalvern - I am so sorry to read this and see these photos, but so thankful you are okay. That looks like a very scary accident. I am impressed how well the passenger compartment stayed intact and it is a testament to the build quality on these vehicles. You were a pioneer for modifying this 3.0 MKZ and your thoughtful, colorful, and insightful posts will be missed on this forum. I wish you all the best with whatever you choose next and hope you achieve a full recovery from any pain and suffering that you are encountering. Please keep us in the loop.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    They do, and that further improves shift speed, but initial driving results in a clunky first to second shift until the transmission warms up a bit. If they could figure out a way to eliminate that issue I would use the firm shift tune all the time.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    The additional power is worth it. I find turning Advancetrac off makes the shifts quicker too. There is definitely less delay with the tune.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    I have a 3.0 AWD with driver’s package and absolutely love the car. The tune adds a lot of power and improves shifting, but does not make it shift like a dual clutch transmission. However, the transmission is not lacking so much where it is a deal breaker for me. As far as I know, Livernois has not released a revision to their initial tune.

    2017 3.0 at the dragstrip

    Thanks for sharing on tires and rpm. 1500 to 1800 seems to be a sweet spot from what I hear. Still haven’t been to the track, but I hope to go and see what the tune does for me. That is a beast Thunderbird!! I love it! Beautiful car and color.

    That’s impressive and looks like a very clean launch without wheel hop. Are you on all season or summer tires? Care to share launch rpm?

    Great story and congrats! Now you have to do your dad some favors and drive him around a bit! I love those two door Grand Marquis. I always joke that there must be a manual transmission version with a 5.0 out there somewhere.
  8. Got ya. I’m on the mobile version and it doesn’t show it.
  9. It stands for Power Transfer Unit. See below link for more info. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-transfer-case-and-PTU-or-power-take-off-unit-in-vehicles
  10. Excellent! You’re welcome!
  11. Have you tried increasing volume when navigation commands are being spoken?

    U024B Code

    That definitely helps. That’s not so bad. Thanks!
  13. My 2017 3.0T had a diagnostic trouble code of U024B today. Anyone familiar with this one?

    Beautiful! I like the black metallic and those wheels.
