When I finally got to the point of no return, I decided to go with the TSW Chicane.  I like a little brightness in a wheel.  The dark just don't suit me.  I think these will look pretty sharp.   

A couple of edits.  Just fooling around.  Hope to get some new pictures tomorrow.   

No doubt.  13.00 is a good time for a tune only SHO.  I'm .2 behind that now and there is more finite tuning to come.  I'm thinking 13.00 or better with a tune and mid 12's with down pipes.  Should be close or match the '12 SHO I had.  If I can match or get close to the old SHO, I'll be very happy!

Yes.  The engine immediately felt like it was breathing easier.  Sounds great too!  Very glad I invested in it.  I got to say that the 3.5 is really a force to be reckoned with. But between weight and power I would think the Edge and Explorer would be pretty close.  The SHO and the Fusion Sport are really close.  I pulled a 13.001 with my SHO on the LME 93 Perf 4+ and a 13.261 with the LME 93 Perf v.3 (I also weighed 100 lbs. more so that's a tenth LOL) Depending on what you read, the are the same stock.

Dave, question for you:  With the stock tune and at wide-open-throttle did your car feel like it just falls on its face at the 1-2 shift?  My Continental has very strong engine power but the 1-2 shift is horrible at WOT.  It shifts great at part throttle and not too bad even with fairly heavy throttle but at WOT,  It feels like it hits the rev limiter prior to the shift.  The engine bogs, the shift occurs and then it surges forward again.

 

I really hope Livernois can address that but I was wondering how your Sport behaved when it was stock.    Also, did your transmission shift quickness improve as you accumulated more miles?
