New Member From Illinois -15 SHO
« on: August 15, 2019, 09:53:19 AM »
Hey Guys,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Bought my 15 SHO non PP last October at 56k. Currently she has 65K and loving it. So far I got an intake, gearhead tune, 3bar and lowering springs ordered.

Been searching for an answer. But i couldnt find one. Whats the difference between H&R springs on the SHO and MKS? MKS have a better drop. Thanks!

Welcome to EBPF, great start to modding!  Do post pics of your SHO :D
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Recently moved to a bigger home, on 1 acre, near border(s) of Manhattan / New Lenox.

I wouldn't necessarily say "a lot" in the true sense, but a "fair" amount of members call this State home.

Welcome aboard. Need anything, LMK.

Welcome! Lots of good information here and helpful people. I have 46k on my 15 non PP, so not too far behind you on miles.

Do you have the auto octane tune or e30?

Have the Auto octane tune. I've read and been told you can add 2 gallons of corn while filling up. Been doing that. Maybe its the butt dyno but it seems like it pulls better.

Thanks for having followed. Although bit of an unfortunate set back this year.

However I'm resigned to making it an even better build this next time around, so keep staying subscribed as I plan on recapturing BOTH the speed AND the power records for the GEN4 platform once again.


As far as meets, hell yea, there's a crap ton of them each weekend. Lot of local cruise night's too, usually on Wednesday's and Thursday's.

I've been out of the loop though since April as that was the last time I piloted my beast before it's untimely demise no thanks to a certain vendor.

Oh well. Shoot me a PM and we'll exchange #'s if you'd like.

The e30 tune makes a big difference. I originally planned on switching back and forth depending on how far I traveled, but I ended up planning routes that had e85 stations and also carried a 5gallon can of e85 in the trunk a few times.
These cars are addictive to drive once they are tuned. I look forward to mine every single time.

I highly recommend it if you have e85 nearby.

I concur 100%.  I plan my route around E85 stations.
