    Rear Transmission Mount

    I was just going to do the bottom one but notice the fluid had leaked out of the passenger side one, FedEx screwed me as usual so I did the bottom and and the side days later.

    2014+ Lowering Springs

    I never got rear shocks and I know I need to. I was going to try and figure out a shock length for a KYB or something rather than the adjustable ones. But it definitely needs shorter shocks. They bottom out without it.

    Rear Transmission Mount

    Holy S&@t! I found out after a ton of research that the lower rear mount is the same as the Focus ST. lots of implications here. I used the Cobb mount and damn that thing made a world of difference. I’m blown away. I was going to go back to Ford and complain about how my trans was shifting. Nope just sloppy ass engine/trans mounts. This takes longer to jack the car up then it does to swap the mount. The original mount I can move with my thumbs. I don’t get why they would think that’s okay. now that being said it’s a vibration station for sure and they say they take a month to break in so I’ll see what happens. It vibrates at idle and and with the A/C on. But the changes it made are insane. This thing is fun to drive now. The Focus Electric Mount would most likely the best option if you don’t want to deal with NVH. Mountune makes one that has less NVH than COBB and there is some others and even inserts for your stock Mount. The scum “mechanic” stripped the frame to side mount bolts on my top passenger side mount and used a nut as a spacer. Hack! now get to swapping mounts.

    GOT IT!!!

    I second this, I have these same ones, they do not flicker, fit poorly or any of the above-stated issues and they do allow me to see better at night and on the highway.

    I don't visit that often because of this and its the same 2 or 3 people replying on each thread. not much in the way of diversity or different ideas.

    6F35 tranny rebuild at 62k

    I just had the solenoids replaced at 35k over Christmas break. drives a million times better. They didn't do any clutches or anything else while I was there. They did complain about my van being lowered and the rear springs coming out.

    GEN2 Transmission Out

There is an S/B on it. I'm trying to get it performed as we speak. But sounds like a broken axle will solve your issue.

    18mpg on a 50K 2014 XLT?

    I drive a mix of city and highway. I have a 2014 XLT SWB with a 1.6l Ecoboost, K&N filter, ST 18's and its lowered. I drive like a grandma and i get 19 MPG on average. Only on long drives do I get up into the 24-26 range. I love my van but the MPG is the only downfall.

    Where the plug is on the end of the filter, it has filter media. It would only draw warm air from the engine compartment. I was wondering if the intercooler would be able to compensate for the potential warm air.
