CP-E rear motor mount, is your best bet.

 

You may get a little vibration at idle from it, but it is not really noticeable.

 

Boomba Racing makes one as well, but the CP-E unit is a little bit better unit.

 

It will reduce the amount of torque flex you are getting from the factory mount, but I am not sure that one is being manufactured for the 3.0TT yet.

 

The one for the Ford Fusion Sport 2.7 might work. I would contact them and see if they will give you a special deal if you try and fit one on your car,

They gave me a deal on one of their intercoolers to trial fit it because nobody had tried it before. The intercooler fit like it was made for the car.

They also gave me special provisions to return the item if it did not work. They are always looking for people to try things so they can expand their selling market.

Wow!  Solid 12-second car.  I'll bet that opened some eyes. :2thumbs:

 

I was a child of the 60s and like every other gear head of the era, like to romanticize the musclecars of the day. We owned one (68 Olds 442 W30). It ran mid-13s and I though that was fast.   It's amazing that here we are in 2018 and a 2-ton+ luxury sedan with a 183 ci engine can spank anything from the day with their 7L engines.  Our cars can also stop and go around corners too.

I just put this on my 3.7. They may extend the discount to you too though, like they did me since you have the newer MKZ and 3.0TT.

 

CP-e's 2.7tt should fit the 3.0TT, as I know the darkstar 2.7tt unit fits the 3.0tt, so I would think all are cross-compatible.

 

PS - great times, I want to see someone hit an 11.9 with a bolt-on MKZ-tt.

Just Traction Control off....I Doubt that Advancetrac Off makes Any Difference, I've had Mustangs, and in those in makes no difference in 1/4 times.....

Interesting... Did you ever take a look to see if you are running all season or summer tires?

I have all seasons too. This is very encouraging. Stickier summer tires should drop the times a tenth or two.

I've had Pilot Super Sports on mine from day 1, and used the all seasons for like 2 weeks before I bought Blizzak LM001's for the cold seasons. Big improvement.

 

I have a set of Pilot 4S's waiting to replace my Super Sports once I wear them enough. Soon as my MKZ is back from service and no more faulty cylinder section that ruins a spark plug.

 

My current work schedule will let me hit up the drag strip every Friday night too. Only mod I do not have yet is Ultimate Performance Catted Downpipes.

 

Anyone who may be near Edgewater Sports Park in Cleves, OH will see me around soon.

Very nice!

 

So...What kind of vehicle staged with you in that first slip? Or what happened to it?

 

That 42.33 mph and 23.288 ET caught my eye.

It was a WRX STI. He missed a gear at the start and coasted in. The 12.91 against me was an Edge Sport with the same tuner and other work. I beat him twice. But he went from mid 14's stock to the 12.91. Mine pulled away at the top end.

Ah that'll explain it. Edge Sports seem to have more punch than the Fusion Sports in tuning. Granted what is going to bog down the 3.0T MKZ is it's limit heat management. Bolt on upgrades drastically improve the power efficiency.

 

Still a tune gets you into the 12's bone stock on the average. Great isn't it?

I was happy. Especially after the STI guys was moaning about spending thousands and still being slower than me. My last three runs were all at 13 flat give or take a hundreth of a second. Heat was taking it's toll. Also launching at anything above 2000 rpm really slows the car down. Big bog right at start on a 3500 rpm launch.

Good Times hrlinc!    And the Darkstar Motor mount really helps with 60' times...I installed it last saturday, I'll find out for sure on Friday at Maple Grove though....

 

 

BTW, whose Tune do you have???

MKZ30AWD,

 

I have the 93 tune installed. I had installed the aggressive tune but didn't like the shifting on it.
