    How To Tune?

    Thank you very much! Odd question, but does the SCT tuner have the Rice Krispies tune ?option? I don’t quite know much about tuning so I really don’t know how to even download a tune. Say if I were to get an SCT, once I get one, can I request a custom tune from a professional shop? Such as a Rice Krispies or Track tune? And if not, do I have to buy a special tuner for the tunes? And how would I go about getting a good tune that i can actually data log and get a couple of revisions to make sure your running safe boost?

    My ongoing build

    My jaw dropped as soon as I saw the side skirts. As well as the 2 tone wrap... and the wheels... and everything!!! Absolutely flawless build man! Gotta ask. What rims those are and where did you get those side skirts and back splats?

    How To Tune?

    I would like to do something different. This is the main reason I got this car. Don't worry, I'm taking extreme care of this car. I am upgrading everything that could be upgraded in the best fashion possible. I'm dropping a lot of money on this car so it won't get damaged. My warranty is not a problem at this point, the motor and transmission have both since been replaced to brand new after problems. I can also fix my own vehicle if it is not a considerably major problem. "It's my style." A big quote I've been referencing when people ask me why I'm doing all of this. I have been trying to make a build happen for years but it somehow someway gets postponed. So this is it. My build. And I can't wait to see everyone's reaction when I come out with a vehicle that sounds, looks, and is the essence of beauty.
  4. So I am getting the Livernois tuner. I know practically next to nothing about tuning and how to request, download, and load tunes. Here are a few questions that I've had that I've tried looking for but couldn't find. For the Livernois is there a list of custom tunes/ECU file tune downloads that I can find online? Is a rice krispies tune available, if there is, how can I get one? How much horsepower can the Livernois increase for 2.0? That's pretty much it. Thanks again.
  5. Does anyone have previous experience with this tuner? Is it worth it? Better than livernois? How much horsepower does it truly increase? How many custom tunes are there for this one tuner? Thanks
  6. You've helped so much. And your MKZ looks beautiful. 10/10
  7. Yep, I'm considerably younger than most. 18. But still, I strive for my dreams. I make things happen. Even if people hate it, I don't care. I am happy with what I have, and they can suck it. I've heard many many incredible I4's. I will post a before/after sound clip. I am also installing a steeda air intake along with a BOV.
  8. Opinion rejected. Fart can embraced. But for real, my vehicle sounds extremely good. I have taken the fish tank of a muffler off and have been asked multiple times if my car is a 2.7 liter. It actually doesn't sound like a fart can whatsoever. And the shop I am getting the exhaust done has worked on thousands of I4's. He's the best in South Carolina. He can make it sound great. I can also customize the tone/loudness factor of said exhaust. I can get a deeper, louder tone, or a performance Esque, more quiet tone.
  9. Howdy, all! I am considering getting H&R lowering springs for my Lincoln and wanted to take the communities feedback on anything that was bad/good about the springs. These springs lower 1.2 inches in the front and 1.4 inches in the rear. If there are any other name brands that are better, let me know. I mainly want to know of any negatives of the springs. Thank you all! 😄 https://cd3performance.com/store/2017-lincoln-mkz/suspension-1301908535/h-and-r-lowering-springs-for-2013-fusion-mkz-awd-fits-hybrid-and-sport.html
  10. That's the exact reason I got this vehicle. Its difficulty to find, and make parts make it an extremely satisfying car to build. The satisfaction of making a build that's considered rare in the community is from what I see as the purpose of my Lincoln. I cannot wait to make it my toy. But safely. That's why I'm on this forum. I previously owned an extremely beautiful 2010 Nissan Maxima, but I, unfortunately, was caught off guard by a dumb teen who rear-ended me, totaling my car, and his. I saw the lincoln that I currently have and fell in love with him. This car is so beautiful. Everyone that gets in my car is caught off guard by the beauty of the interior. Many call it a rocket ship. But I always crave more. I always want to make things better. I try and educate myself, but for this build, I didn't want to. I needed people that knew about the car better than I did, so when I finish my build, I won't be afraid of losing anything I spent my money on. Whether it be severe, or a simple fix, I don't want anything to happen to this car. There will be a lot of custom work done to this car, starting with the exhaust. Very excited about this build, and I am excited to share it. Thank you all for your great help.
  11. Thank you very much. You just saved me $300, or in other words, $300 to spend else-where. I believe it would come in handy for a street race at 40+mph but I don't exactly do that. If you have any other power enhancers that you know would be a good fit for the lincoln, let me know, because this car is a build I'm going to have for a while.
  12. I don't know what I'd do without you bbf. I really don't. Also, I was not reading the label correctly on the exhaust system. I really can't find any exhaust systems so I'm giving up hope on it. I found the Borla one is too quiet for my taste, as I'm trying to boost the sound. Like I've said in a million other posts, links to any universal/100% fitment exhaust systems would be greatly appreciated, as I've spent hours searching and still can't find one. As for the Throttle Controller, why is it considered useless? I'm sorry for not knowing, I'm new to the whole modifying thing. I know how to fix things, not make them better. The BOV is for sound. Sorry for not specifying.
  13. I'm adding two more things haha https://www.carid.com/2017-ford-fusion-air-intakes/kn-air-intakes-63-series-450632730.html https://www.stage3motorsports.com/817552-12-18-focus-20l-na-flowmaster-forceii-catback-single-exit-exhaust-system-nonst.html
  14. Howdy again! So I've been compiling a bunch of what seems to be "performance enhancers" for the Lincoln, and I just wanted to come here to confirm 100% each one worked by taking the communities feedback. I will be dropping each link below so you may judge it for yourselves. I am planning on purchasing all of these come Christmastime, so I just wanted to triple check they did. https://www.carid.com/2017-lincoln-mkz-performance-chips/banks-pedalmonster-throttle-controller-3233828855.html?parentsubmodel[]=ENGINE|2.0L https://www.racechip.us/shop/lincoln/mkz-from-2013/2-0t-1999ccm-240hp-176kw-251lb-ft.html (I believe this one is fake, or just is over-hyped due to it being a chip). https://www.livernoismotorsports.com/product/LPP631108 https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Universal-car-alcantar-led-av-ailable_1600061835526.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normal_offer.d_title.56772d02ZYoWIM (this looks incredibly fake, but another user here said he purchased it from this website, and it worked. This isn't a performance upgrade, but still a cool toy.) https://www.boombaracing.com/ford-eb-blow-off-valve/ (Another cool toy, but I wanted to ask if this will fit my vehicle, and I also wanted to know how loud it is, due to my car being a quieter, I don't want an intense WOOOSH.) That's about it, I'll leave it to you guys to judge. 🙂
