    Mks ptu service.

    I only put on 5000 miles a year, so I change it every 15,000 miles. When the car is out of its extended Ford warrantee, I'll probably do it every 10,000 miles. At this point, if it blows, I'm still under warranty so every 15,000 miles is what I decided to do. I have the dealer do it. If I recall correctly, it's about 100 bucks or so. I did have to convince them over time to do it........ as they gave me the standard "FORD says it's lifetime fluid".

    Mks ptu service.

    It is the same as an SHO. You suck the old lubricant out of the fill plug. The fill plug can be seen from under the car. I am sure there are pictures of it floating around somewhere in the forums.

    Looking for advice

    You really want a custom tune....not just what is loaded on a tuner. Unleashed tuning and Livernois Motorsports & Engineering are the two most popular choices. There are other good ones like Brew City Boost and AJP turbo. Livernois uses their own tuner - MyCal. About everyone else uses SCT. The first thing you should really decide is how involved you want to be in the tuning. With Livernois, you get excellent tunes with minimal effort - just simply a plug & play. Virtually everyone else provides a base tune and then you do datalogging to dial it in specifically for your vehicle. The datalogging requires you to hook the device to the OBD port and typically do some WOT pulls while the device is recording what the engine and transmission are doing. You then send the data to the tuner who tweaks the tune and sends it back to you. Sometimes, this process can involve many logs and tweaks before the tune is as good as it can be. I have had tuned vehicles using both methods. The Livernois method is clearly the easiest and the results are great. The datalogging method puts extra wear/tear on your car, takes quite a bit of time and exposes you to potential violations of the law if your tuner wants a WOT run that exceeds the speed limits. Those who prefer the datalogging method claim that no two cars are alike and when the tune is tweaked to your specific car, it will be faster and safer.

    2011 MKS Belly Pan/Skid Plate

    UH....if yours was different, it was not the original. The one Bpd posted is the one that belongs on the car. I had an MKS and am 100% familiar with the aeroshield.

    Power Loss After Catback

    I believe you are incorrect about not needing back pressure. We have heard too many times that the modern engines and computers need back pressure to work correctly. Not sure I understand it, but seems to hold true. There has been too many times that people have reduced back pressure in several different engines and have seen performance decrease. Kinda like that none of the aftermarket CAIs work to improve performance. The best track times always come with the stock air box.....

    Power Loss After Catback

    I’m going to disagree about the reduced back pressure causing power loss. Turbo engines don’t really need back pressure after the turbos as it becomes a restriction. There are too many variables that could be causing your power loss and the fact that you didn’t do it on the same day as the factory exhaust, I wouldn’t read into it too much.
