How To Articles / Re: *HOW-TO* 2013+ Brakes on a 2010-2012...THEY WORK!!
« Last post by timbo on January 31, 2023, 12:01:23 PM »
Any reason why this brake upgrade couldn't work on the 2013+ non-SHO Taurus as well?   My understanding is the non-SHO's have the same brakes as the 2010-2012's but I have seen some say the 2013+ SHO has a different knuckle that would prevent such a retrofit.


I would love to confirm this, but by research has shown there was only the overlap in 2013 MY only for the smaller brakes. Beginning 2014, the part numbers are all the same, except the performance package calipers have the vented pistons and silicon boots for heat.


The spindle is different only in the fact that it uses the 2 bolt mounting to the strut vs the big hole/pinch style of the 10-12.


The purpose of this thread was to show that the brakes will mount between the 2. I ordered all the parts for a 2014 Taurus and put them on my 2011.

I absolutely love the track MKS! I just got my MKS recently, and I’m going for a similar build. Want to make an American M4. Those videos are awesome though!

So what is the idea on that IC ?  It doesnt look like outside air will flow through it.

Excellent data!
Thank you.
I do have a brochure but it's not as extensive as the links you provided. I knew going the forum route was the best place to start!

OEM Plugs are fine for most power situations. I would not stray from these unless you are tuning Well above what most tune for.

I had Brad, AJ Turbo, tune my 2015 SHO and he said just use the OEM heat range. I was tuned to a high 93 tune, E30, and FULL E85 tune. Brad said there was absolutely nothing to gain by going colder. Same with the Thermostat.

OEM plugs are inexpensive, easy to replace, and unless you are driving like a mad man. They will hold gap pretty well.


Iridium are not "Gap able ". Are these ? When tuning. You want to gap a lot smaller to avoid blowing out.

I am showing like $25 a plug. Yeah not worth it imho.

assuming the hoses to the solenoid are properly secured, you can check

a) the blowoff valve for torn gasket
b) the turbo actuator c-clip for excessive play
c) the turbo piping for cracks esp near/at the clamps

PCV/Catch Cans / Re: $70 Catch Can system

What I learned with making mine. There are way better out there for the money. UPR and J&L for example.

I run a J&L on my Edge and it works very well. I think we think into it too much.

Without a check valve on line c, from can to air inlet hose, wouldnt it impede on full evacuation from the dirty side during idle? Where vacuum at idle would be pulling from both lines a and c so you wouldnt  be getting full suction. Where if there was a check valve vacuum would only pull from line a?
