    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.

    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.

    3.0T Performance Modifications

    Hey Kevin, The bolts are torx. I went and bought a small set of torx sockets from harbor freight. I don't remember the exact size but they were like 6 of them in the kit. Cost me like 9 dollars. Good luck and if you can't find them let me know and I'll go dig them out and give you the exact size when I get a chance. - Kyle

    That's how I felt too. The 14 speaker didn't seem as balanced. It's a great system but it seems harsh in the high end. My 20 speaker Ultima seems more balanced but I still do take the treble down a notch or 2 depending on what I'm listening too.

    It's the 20 speaker system. It sounds amazing but the rear sunshade vibrates on the rear deck and the rear deck vibrates on the glass. It's pretty shitty. It wasn't that bad in the beginning but the other night we were listening to Warren G regulate and it was rattling at level 8. That's not acceptable.

    It hasn't been bad other than some minor shit with the dealership. I took it from NE to OK then to NC. Went to Florida then back to NC and now I'm down in MS. I'll be back in NC in several weeks then headed back to NE. I'll have 10k miles on it before 6 months. I guarantee it lol. I'm at 8300 right now. Just a couple rattles I will get taken care of and then fighting with them to fix the rear deck rattling from the stereo. It doesn't even have to be up that loud and they are like not our problem. Hope yours is working out pretty well for you.

    A combination of talking to my dealership and logging into the Ford Etis website and looking at my VIN. The car didn't show up in ETIS until the week or two prior to build with and estimated build date of June 5th. Ended up being built on June 4th. The window sticker showed up the about a week and a half before build and the date on it changed a couple times as it went through the system.

    Well I can tell you what my dealer told me when I ordered my car. Allotments are key here. I had an AWD 3.0 black label (which get prioritized before all over productions) and I had to wait a while. Order was placed I believe April 3rd, had a VIN by April 16th. Vehicle was built on June 4th and got the vehicle on June 27th. It was almost 12 weeks when I got it and the dealership said it was usually 8-12 weeks avg from order to delivery. But sometimes it can take them much longer depending on allocations.

    I believe that all 3.0 reserve AWD cars come with the dynamic torque vectoring included.

    I'm going to tell anyone now. I received a 3.0 twin turbo front wheel drive loaner while the dealer replaced my cluster and anyone wanting to save a little money by skipping the AWD need to rethink their decision. The damn thing had traction control kicking in at 55MPH on dry pavement. Torque steer was absolutely brutal. Spend the extra cash and get the AWD with the 3.0T. You'll thank me later.
