    2018 Mustang Ecoboost PP
  1. Some tuners are offering "built" engines using the 2.0 block. Apparently, it is a closed deck design and supposed to be stronger.
  2. No, they really didn’t. I read it. It’s more fluff than actual comparison.
  3. I appreciate the effort. I really hate to nitpick, but at least one of you numbers are wrong. The Ford GT sold 10 last year and 44 this year. That’s a bit more than a 77.27% increase. 😄

    Ford launches the Supercars Mustang

    Looks more like a Mustang than the NASCAR Mustang.
  5. It took about 2 years for Ford to come out with the tune for the 2015 Mustang. They say they are waiting on CARB certification for the 2018-2019 Ecoboost tune.
  6. Ford’s website says the package includes “Automatic calibrations feature optimized performance shift schedule”. The tune works with the 6R80. Ford doesn’t offer a tune yet for the 2.3 EB with the 10 Spd Auto in any vehicle. All of the aftermarket tuners said their 2015-2017 tunes would not work with the 2018 Mustang. They obviously won’t work with the Ranger either. You can be sure Ford’s won’t work with the Ranger either. If I remember correctly, the Ranger has different camshafts, timing, etc. I haven’t seen Ford mention anything about custom tunes for the Ranger yet. A few (maybe more) aftermarket companies are working on tunes for the Ranger.
  7. I was disappointed when I saw the “final episode” announcement. I also like Kindig and just cannot watch Gas Monkey Garage.
  8. Here in Georgia, I’ve probably never seen more than three in a week. On average, I may see one per week. To be honest, though, I don’t really look for Tesla’s. They don’t make anything that I’m interested in.

    Harvick's 2019 Mustang

    Uh, Dale Sr drove a Ford in the early and mid 80’s. Maybe he was brand loyal in his later years.

    Agreed. My Mustang has buttons for almost everything. I use the buttons most of the time.

    Atlis electric pickup

    You’re right. I was thinking about Faraday Future. Thanks.

    Atlis electric pickup

    I thought Atlis was having financial issues. Do I have them confused with another company?
  13. Agreed. I would never use a shop like Jiffy Lube.
  14. Time for anecdotal evidence. I took delivery of my Mustang in February. A day later, I checked the tire pressures - 44 lbs. It’s supposed to be 32. It’s minor, but an annoyance. Went to the dealership’s Quicklane for my free oil change. They used the wrong weight oil. That’s two mistakes in two attempts. A friend has had numerous problems with the same Quicklane service. So I use an independent shop. It’s owned by a friend of my brother. I used to use a different dealership for all my maintenance, but had a handful of issues with them. This is why I don’t use dealerships for my maintenance anymore. I pay slightly more for the service, but I trust this shop. Disclaimer: I’m not bashing all dealerships and Quicklanes, just the two that are closest to me.
  15. No, this won’t work on the new Ranger. Ford doesn’t even recommend this for the 2018 Mustang. They are supposed to be working on a tune for the 18/19 Mustangs but it’s not out yet. If Ford does a kit for the Ranger, I suspect it will be at least a year before it’s available.
