    Engine High RPMs Sport Mode?

    In the five Goat mode system all the modes are basically throttle remapping. You want snappier power you gotta move up the tac. You want easier control in slick stuff you lessen throttle response. Example: regular drive mode, a half inch of gas pedal movement gives ‘X’ amount of acceleration…...

    More noise since having wheels installed.

    I was raised in Florida sugar sand and beach sand. Plus we had swamp mud. I have no experience at all with rock gardens. It was common knowledge that in sand wide tires held the vehicle up better. And in mud tall tires worked best as they dug in deep to grab. Sand liked chevrons and mud liked...

    Auto Start/Stop when Parking

    I’ve had some luck with two odd ball techniques. I pull in a parking spot and just as I’m about to come to a complete stop, and I mean inches. I lift my braking foot to where the brakes are just barely able to hold the vehicle still then re apply the brakes as I stop. But not by much, Just a...

    Glad we didn't make this list (10 least reliable SUVs)

    I’m telling you guys this and if I’m lying I’m dying. ‘Bots’ are writing these articles and some guy spit shines them up a bit. Some guy that’s just another talking head gets the data and stats from some algorithm and spoon feeds this crap to the general public. . We will only know how good our...

    5 star tuning 1.5L dyno sheet

    “A mild can tune from a reputable tuner is unlikely to cause damage or significantly reduce the life expectancy of an engine.” I would think a so called ‘Mild tune’ would only let you actually feel a difference if you were really pushing the engine, rpm’s above what ? 5,000 rpm.. I would not...

    5 star tuning 1.5L dyno sheet

    “Then they also de-tune to reduce drive train failures. So usually that leaves a ton of room for after market tunes to add a lot of power especially turbo engines.” “Drive train failures” There is no replacement for displacement. My little 1.5L 3 banger gets around just fine. If stock means I’m...

    More noise since having wheels installed.

    “width is 8.5 inches instead of 7 inches like the stock rims.” Ok so your tires are wider correct? More rubber on the road, more noise, I bet your mpg’s will be different. Noise is resistance.

    LOL! Maverick owners complaining about discontinued engine cover too

    The New World Order. You buy a new vehicle, You have to finish building it. If Ford would clean up, reorganize that RATS NEST of tubes and wires on top of the motor and make it all look somewhat cool the engine cover could fade into history like. Wing vents, bell bottoms and platform shoes. ;’P...

    LOL! Maverick owners complaining about discontinued engine cover too

    Possession, it’s all about possessing something that others may want or have and you don’t. Can you imagine you open your hood and your buddy says, “Aww you didn’t get an engine cover, but I got mine!” The Horror, the Horror of it all~~ ‘Apocalypse Now’
