    3.0T Performance Modifications

    The gfb diverter is beneficial when shifting gears or when you get off and back on the throttle. It is made to bleed off just enough of the excess pressure instead of dumping all the pressure and having to repressurize. Off the line won't change with a gfb valve because you would still have spool up the turbo. The throttle enhancer from what I understand just multiplies your inputs. It will feel more responsive but won't do anything after you've left the line.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    They have a CD6 vehicle. It's the aviator. The CD6 is an explorer chassis. Doubt they will build a car on it. I don't need something that big though. And screw BMW. Most expensive car to own. Like I said audi is pretty expensive but they take care of their customers. I'll see what lincoln has in 4 or 5 years and go from there. I'm not into loud rough rides anymore so it's gonna be hard to find a vehicle that's quick but comfortable.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    I just don't see it surviving ford's car cut and if it does they will be made in China. That's gonna be a no from me dawg. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do after the Z. I suppose I'll move on to audi honestly. Jags are pretty but their maintenance has been horrendous and Mercedes is just so God damn expensive.

    That's just cruise control set to 70-75. I'm not sure why it gets such amazing gas mileage. Don't get me wrong though. It's gotten its share of shit mileage as well. Driving through the Mt of NC destroyed it's mileage.

    3.0T Performance Modifications

    I get 30+ most of the time going to and from omaha to Tulsa. I have even gotten 35MPG a few times. This car gets amazing mileage as long as you don't have to accelerate hahaha. The turbos are too small and produce boost way too easy. City driving just fizzles gas.

    I'm pretty sure you get 3 tunes.

    Ultimate Performance CAI for 17 MKZ 3.0 TT

    I might actually drive up to them and get my mkz dyno tuned for an even 400AWHP.

    Ultimate Performance CAI for 17 MKZ 3.0 TT

    I feel you on that. I heard that the new livernois tuners do data logging now so I might take a look. Still not hyped about the price though. I have read 3 different experiences now that had them leave unleashed for livernois so I might just skip unleashed and go livernois. I'm sure I'll leave power on the table but it will be way better than stock I'm sure.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    Yeah. I thinking of doing hp tuners as SCT has finally pissed me off. I got an email a couple months ago that said they are restricting my pro racer package access so I wont have access to all my parameters. After spending 600 dollars they can go F themselves now. Let me know if Torrie can get the tune locked in better. Out of the livernois tunes which do you prefer? The firmer shift one or the normal one?

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    The lack of data logging is my issue and the expense for livernois. I think you're the only person I have actually heard say there were issues with Torrie. Would you mind expanding on the issues you had a little bit? I'll be pulling the trigger on a tune next spring after I get the Tracy Lewis oil can installed.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    I have no idea. I bought mine brand new and I just set the cruise control and go. But yeah in the summer time driving to and from Oklahoma to Omaha I get 30+ always. Leaving Asheville, NC and driving to OK my first fill up was 37 lol. But that was a lot of down the mountain. I did take her for a pretty decent break in drive after I took delivery. Drove 400 miles to my mom's and then 400 back within the first 3 days of owning it. And I didn't beat on her for the first 3500 or so.

    2019 Due ?

    If you have the money and can swing it, I highly recommend you find a local detailer and have paint correction and a ceramic coating installed. It will make things so much easier in the long run to keep things clean and it will always looked waxed for you. I went on the more expensive side and got feynlabs self heal plus on mine. But you can do self heal lite as well. Or go with the super hard stuff like Kenzo or opticoat pro plus or something similar. Edit: Added some photos.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    I don't have a tune on mine. But I average a little over 17 in the city and 31-33 on the interstate depending on temperature and wind and such. I run 91 pure gas from the shell station down the street.

    Regular vs Premium Gas

    For the longest time it was mandatory premium he 100 percent gas but it was only 91 octane. They have since started moving away from it so we are getting more and more 91 w/ ethanol. Shell and BP still have pure gas in their premium grades though.

    Regular vs Premium Gas

    little late to the party but it will take several tanks for the computer to compensate for the fuel unless you use forscan to reset what it has learned. The car will pull timing to prevent detonation. Anytime it detects Detonation it will pull timing and it probably won't add it back once it pull it. I noticed a hell of a difference from the 87 octane the dealer filled it up with and then the 91 pure gas after resetting the computer. She only gets premium and only Shell or BP.
