  1. PLENTY of room under there! I got the Kenwood ksc-w11 self powered subwoofer and it fits' in the little storage space under the passenger seat but I'll probably put it under the drivers seat to keep the silly little storage space. Sub and rear speakers (JL Audio) , back up camera and dash cam came today. Head unit (Kenwood dmx7704s) and front component speakers coming separately. Gonna have it professionally installed. Can't wait.
  2. Is there a problem using their steering wheel controls?
  3. Not much there. Has anyone figured out how much height there is to use under the seats?
  4. Wheel Size Question

    Unless you plan to actually haul 1,600lbs (or something close to that) you don't need specially rated wheels or tire. The car weighs the same or less than a Fusion.
  5. Aftermarket Bluetooth

    My 2.5 is flex fuel. E85 loses more mpg than it saves equivalent $. Great for turbo's and hotly modified cars.
  6. What if your TC doesn't have steering wheel controls?
  7. Oil

    You're wasting oil that could easily go 4 -5 times that mileage.
  8. under the passenger seat? I"ve seen a couple of very thin (3" or less) small woofers in plastic housings with amplifier that look like they'd fit under the seat. Anyone tried one? They are small diameter (6-8") so not going for THUMP, just some actual bass noise. Like this: http://www.jbl.com/car-subwoofers/ https://www.shop.com/KENWOOD+KSC+SW11+Kenwood+Compact+Powered+Subwoofer+Enclosure+150W+Max+power+Wired+Remote+Control-1583085226-p+.xhtml?sourceid=298&CAWELAID=120179650037056799&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=22435473779&CATCI=pla-65399634571&CATARGETID=120179650035805681&cadevice=c&gclid=CjwKCAjwmK3OBRBKEiwAOL6t1BW59QJCgBdHqOQOOT3Pzc7YZmZaQRiiiKKqrRuqeosQXXTcCZd4lBoCYGEQAvD_BwE
  9. E85 regular users?

    ALL the turbo's and high hp guys run E85 with special tunes due to it's higher performance capabilities. (cooler, less chance of detonation) No it won't give you equal mpg, yes it will make more power if the car has the tuning to take advantage of it.
  10. 2.5 breaks in

    at 6700 miles my TC is suddenly much smoother and peppier than it used to be! I noticed the idle seemed smoother and then i chirped the tires coming off stops a few time and I don't floor it. The top end performance is noticably better as well. Will see if the mpg change, currently avg 26.4mpg long term (math done, not the stupid inaccurate computer reading). Have liked the car a lot for a stripped cargo van, now I like it even more.
  11. Pics of the new DD modded

    Looks great! Crossbars will howl.
  12. 14 and Newer 6 Speed Select Shift

    I think the 2.5's most impressive performance is part throttle off the line stuff. Very peppy and uses the properly spaced gears very well. Yes you can get a bit more wringing it's neck but it's the torque and tranny down low that impress me. Great city driveability in the flatland I live in. This isn't a motor (2.5) that loves to rev or is designed to spend a lot of time there. I think I'd get frustrated driving it in the mountains with any load. Apologies if you're talking about the turbo.
  13. Passenger seat fold flat?
