  1. Using lossless or HD files is a good start but it does not guarantee good sound. That unfortunately is up to the recording engineer and as I mentioned a flat frequency response to me sounds horrible with too much emphasis on the mid range. My point is that every recording has flaws regardless of the source quality and reducing mid range frequencies is usually required to make it tolerable on any system.
  2. There is some good information in this thread. Although Ultima test results using calibrated equipment show excellent specs I can see why some people have the issue noted above with the Ultima system. I am an audiophile and appreciate good equipment. I learned long ago that garbage in = garbage out. Most of the time my music source is compressed audio from my cell phone. People should be looking at their EQ settings on their source device to ensure that the midrange frequencies are set properly. Personally I very much dislike the sound of a flat frequency response and de emphasize the midrange frequencies. Every recording is different and needs adjustment. Personally I am happy with the investment I made with the Ultima system and enjoy it every time I drive the car.
  3. This is likely the best modification out there for the 2013-2016 MKZ’s. Nice work
  4. Sounds like you should have bought a Honda Civic if your after that awesome 4 cylinder fart can sound. As already noted, the MKZ is a luxury car, not a tuner. You will reduce the resale value with all your mods. Potential buyers will quickly recognize that a teenage driver owned the car....no bueno, when the see the fart can exhaust, CAÍ and vinyl wrap. 🙄. It’s your car though so tear it up. Detroit is making new ones every day.

    I’m not familiar with R-Bo Company but a quick search shows that they are still in business. Small world.

    Zeeland Michigan. It’s Tulip Time right now so traffic is a pain. Remember the klompen dancers?

    Looking for a Bargain?

    It’s one of the reasons we bought our 2019 when it was one year old. It was a great value. I also bought our car from a Southern state to save money. I live in an affluent area (West Michigan) and local dealer prices reflect it. Cars here are usually priced 10% higher and have been exposed to salt. No thanks!

    Why are you making all of these modifications and then selling the car? Most people, including me, prefer the stock unmolested look. It’s your car and you can do whatever you want to it. Maybe you should keep it?
  13. Looks good! How much were the parts?

    Lincoln Zephyr Reflection concept.

    There is no mention of power train. Perhaps Ford is leaving their options open? While I like the styling I still much prefer the existing model. Especially the rear end.
  15. Although I do not have any first-hand experience, Odyssey AGM Batteries have a very good reputation. Here is a link. It looks like they sell a model that fits our MKZ’s. https://www.odysseybattery.com/battery-search/?vehicleType=CAR&Year=2019&Make=Lincoln&Model=MKZ&Engine=2.0+Liters+122+CID+L4&Variation=Gas
