On Livernois' Facebook page, they are showing a 52 whp and 26 lbs/ft gain with their MKZ 3.0 tune.

I was once told that LMS electronically locks the car into a gear to measure the HP/TQ. I'd be curious what gear they were testing in. The Dyno wasn't going fast enough to be top gear.

I didn't have the best experience with my LMS tune, so I may wait until other alternatives come to market.

SCT told me that they would have support for the 3.0 shortly after the first of the year.  I talked with Torrie about it months ago and he was anxious to tune a 3.0 as soon as it was supported by SCT.   I am sure there will be other options as well.

I'm hoping so! The car is pretty quick as is -- 0-60 4.8 is pretty impressive. As I said before its interesting to see how the tuning goes.

The 3.0TT is VERY much FWD until you get past 30-40% throttle. You can watch it on the intelligent AWD monitor. It explains a lot about how my SHO was having a lot of rough slow shifts. Specifically downshifting was a little rough at times.

Yes, 6F55 for the 2017 MKZ.
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!

I'll be excited to see what comes of a 3.0 with an AJP tune. Keep us posted!

UGH I just shipped out the Livernois tuner to someone else, or I would have checked the strategy code. For lack of buying a SCT tuner, is there another way I can get my strategy?

Not sure if you have engineering mode, but if so that will tell you the strategy code as well.

I went and drove one today. It was a loaded Reserve model, sticker was $60k.
Gunmetal grey, Ebony interior with white piping, and carbon fiber trim. What a beauty!
Very quite ride, very smooth ride. Stomping on the gas from a light reminded me of the same acceleration as my tuned SHO. It clawed the pavement for traction as the tires chirped.
Dealer offered out the door price of $59k with 0%..... Whew...
