    2010 XLT Slammed

    I can officially say that with the Transit Connect and 2.0 Duratec motor, there is a lot of cross platform compatibility from the Focus that I have done the testing on. The Cosworth Intake manifold will not bolt right up to the throttle body. To overcome this, I bought a Steeda throttle body spacer. This will bolt stright up to three of the 4 bolts on the Cossie manifold. I can drill and tap the fourth one with no issues. The Steeda will bolt right up to the Transit Connect throttle body. I will have to relocate the reservoir for the power steering fluid, but that is customary on the 2.0 on all chassis. FSWerks CAI works no problem. It does come into contact with a feed/return line with the transmission, but i will be replacing this with a SS flex line. Massive water pump pulley bolts right on and is underdrive. All FSwerks VF engineering motor mounts bolt right up FSWerks engine cover bolts right up FSWerks strut tower brace bolts right up with a little bit of maneuvering for the brake fluid reservoir and one engine heat shield Massive EGR delete bolts right up FSWerks cat less header bolts right up SCTX4 can support reading and tuning my ECU There's probably a few other bits and pieces I am missing....however there is also the addition of a universal ZEX 55 shot nitrous being added with the Innovate Nitrous management system. You want pics? I cant wait to provide pics.

    MK2 With Sparco Terra Wheels

    I've been eyeing these wheels ever since I got the van. I was never in a place to drop the cash for them, though. I found them on sale through Tire Rack for $120/wheel. They originally run for $160/wheel. I finally pulled the trigger, and have zero regrets. Bolt pattern, diameter, and width all are matching to OEM (OEM steel wheels per say). The only difference was the offset. Factory offset is +52mm; and these have an offset of +40mm. This just means the wheels stick out 12mm further than factory (about .5 inch). Personally, I think they look awesome on the winter/race tires I mounted them on. Tires are Sumitomo Ice Edge 215/60r 16.

    Daytime pic. 😇 the way the sun was hitting it shows that rose gold flip. I saw it just a second ago and has more of the white pearl to it because the way the sun hits it at this hour. I’m a clam today.

    I guess my definition of fun and sporty are different than yours. Hit a pothole? You’ll feel it. Pay attention to the road and put the phone down? Then you’re good.

    The 65 vs stock 55 series tires made it feel a lot less responsive cornering (loved the stock handling of this thing), quieter on insanely rough/loud Seattle freeways, much smoother over broken concrete (aka our streets), and way, way better on logging roads. Basically what you'd expect on a taller sidewall tire. I drove these for a few weeks before installing front spacers. I could tell no difference in handling once the 30mm spacers went in, though I'm sure you'd notice something if on stock tires. Quieter again, if anything, which could be the rubber spacer isolating the struts from the metal body of the van. I get that there will be increased wear on CV's, etc., but 30mm is pretty modest and the angles looked reasonable after install. The amount I pay in CV and front end work will be saved by not peeling open the underside like a popcan on those ridges of cobble that like to stick up from the center of logging roads. @jrm223 Good info on the wiper arms! I put them back on with anti-seize, which should also make it easier. I'm looking to keep this fairly low cost, so no welding or bags. I'll probably do the rear spacers, if the shop wants $$ I'm sure I can find better spring compressor to rent somewhere.

    Let all the air out of all 5 tires. Or an old school, hidden, kill switch. Or make a hat with the tinfoil your burrito came in, to keep the government out of your brain.

    Well the paint is done. We originally went with a balloon white satin pearl. In the last top coat we threw in a tiny rose gold/champagne pearl just to add a small shift in lighting. It was a great last minute choice. So its a 100% custom color and no one else would ever have it. No pictures yet during the day as we were in the booth yesterday 13 hours. Honestly can say I have zero regrets.

    Adding rear window on 2014 or newer TC?

    Yup, on the screens. I plan to use my TC as a weekend camper and the sliders all around plus a maxxifan up top provide a lot of ventilation. I'll also be adding a heavy curtain or accordian door behind the seats to keep the cab's heat from the rear. PS - the sliders here are a pleasant surprise. They were a bit tight at first, but a bit of silicone grease on the tracks took care of that nicely.

    That's exactly why I added a keypad to the rear door of my TC, so I didn't have to stash the FOB at the beach. Has worked brilliantly for the last five years. Have you experimented stashing the FOB inside different types of metal containers to block the RF signal? Just storing it in the trunk is not enough to block its signal. A quick google search found the items linked below. Not endorsing these products but something like them might work. Check the reviews. Good luck! https://www.amazon.com/Keyfob-RFID-Signal-Blocking-Bag/dp/B00Y3FLYWG https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081TNGCVS/ref=sspa_dk_detail_5?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B081TNGCVS&pd_rd_w=ptO1S&pf_rd_p=45a72588-80f7-4414-9851-786f6c16d42b&pd_rd_wg=hk5dC&pf_rd_r=8CB9DXXEBTYBNCJ0CPKY&pd_rd_r=8eff050b-8645-4ba9-aee5-0ad885e0a646&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyTENEUlhMSVNOM1RYJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjM1NzgyMTM4NDNNWlJTTDBPSCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjEzOTY4MThWU0w2UDFOUzhINiZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

    And another good shot someone else took. This is before paint in 1.5 weeks from now.

    Hi all any update? I have a 2019 TC wagon Titanium 1200 miles on it. 3 - 5 second delay shifting in to reverse. dealer claims i don't break enough. I was stuck in middle of a k turn on a narrow road today. didn't engage in reverse until I held the break all the way down for 2-3 seconds!

    Curt Hitch Class 2 or 3?

    Go with the class 3. You don't want a class 2, only to have to buy all new accessories, since you already have what you need for a 2" receiver.

    I’ve been driving a new 2019/20 for a month now, I’ve put close to 10k on it, since the beginning it takes a good 3-5 seconds to engage reverse but never totally failed to engage, other than that the 2-1 downshift when stopping is pretty harsh most of the time, kinda worries me

    Cargo Tie Down Points

    I found four mounting holes on each side of the rear panels (above the wheel well) on a 2020 TC SWB Cargo Van. Ordered eight 10mm bolts (20mm in length 1.5 thread) along with D-Rings and silicone washers: Put bungie cords on them so they stand out. In addition to the floor rings:

    The FOB has a transmitter that allows the vehicle start. Leaving a fob inside will allow the van to be started by punching the ignition or other criminal means. I want to hide a key under the body but need to find a way to block the disable/enable signal.

    Here is a picture. My manual has a number next to the image. Possibly a part number? E188482 My kids love them and I do too. Not large but perfect for their iPad, jacket, tissue box, first aid kit, chargers and headsets, etc. We like them enough that we are searching for a second set to see if we could put it above the third row/just behind the second.

    303 Aerospace protectant is the product to use on plastic, rubber, vinyl, etc. It's a great tire UV blocker/protectant and the only one that works. NOT a "dressing" like ArmourAll junk and all the others that contain petroleum distillates. Sure it makes them shiney but NOT what you want to use. http://www.303produc...-protectant.cfm http://www.303produc...ation_guide.htm I use it on our RV tires and decals and all plastic and rubber parts/trim on the vehicles. Most marine and RV stores carry 303 and Walmart has it online and maybe instore.
