Re: Cold Air Intake in PI?

Also, there is nothing wrong with K&N, the stories of oil in the intake are because of user error in oiling the screen. That being said, I always run an AEM dryflow in my cars.

You mean $500 dollar chain and guides. That's what they wanted extra to do it.

The dealer lowered the entire cradle out the bottom and lifted the car, then did the waterpump on the floor.

What did you do to your PI today?

I enabled all the usual FORSCAN stuff, except for some reason DTRL did not work, and I do not have the GPS module, apparently, so the compass just shows N all the time. LED headlamps and turnsignals, and a CB antenna on the trunk lid for the CB I'm putting in this weekend. Next up: Front Swaybar Lin...

Re: Door jamb key pad

I'm not saying that spreadsheet isn't wrong, just that it exists. I'm off to the dentist, but when I get back, I will be sitting down with the laptop for a session and see what actually works on my 2013.

Re: rooftop antenna wiring

Your mileage may vary, but when the Virginia State Police retired mine, they just cut the coax at the B pillar, and trunk lid. I had to buy all new antennas for my CB and Scanner.

Re: Anyone tuning their PI?

You can change tire size in forscan, too, BTW. Go 19", 17", whatever.But, as long as all 4 are the same diameter though, you won't have PTU issues, just your speedo may be off if you elect to not change it in forscan. You can do plus 1/minus 1 and keep tire diameter close to stock. Rule of thumb is;...

Re: Cold Air Intake in PI?

P.s. If a website says it won't fit your interceptor, then try a regular Taurus instead, like an SE or something, a lot of sites are prejudicial to our rides.

Re: Cold Air Intake in PI?

K&N part number 77-2576KTK is what you want for a non-turbo 3.5/3.7 liter. Ecoboost would take the SHO one.

I am about to buy one myself. I will be using the Torque app with an OBD transceiver as my dyno to document if any changes I make are beneficial.

Re: Door jamb key pad

This is for F-150, not Taurus. I don't think so, that function is in the SYNC3 APIM module, which My 2013 does not have.

Dropped it off for the water pump...

...when I arrived for my appointment, they could not find it. Turns out, guy on the phone thought I was with the VSP, and put my reservation under Virginia. When they realized I wasn't, they had to re-do my paperwork and quote. The price magically dropped from $1600 to $1400. Methinks the stealershi...

Re: Door jamb key pad

Seems it's whatever the department could afford when bought...Mines a former Virginia trooper car, and the state spec'd carpet, cloth seats, backup cam, and not much else.

Re: Beating the crap out of your PI

Drove the 2013 PI to the dealer for the infamous waterpump replacement, and we just had 6 inches of snow. Those RSA's are amazing on snowpack! They sure don't look it though. First AWD car I've ever owned, besides my Wrangler, and I am impressed.

Re: Anyone tuning their PI?

Don't worry about that, it's still just a stripped out Taurus, no matter what Ford calls it.
Go to a tire site, like tire rack, and put in PI and see what's available. Now search by Taurus, and see how your choices magically expanded by a factor of ten, for example.

Livernois has one, as do Cobb, and Bully Dog.
