    Already have a BDX through Unleashed but it's having firmware issues. Keep getting an error and waiting for SCT/BDX to get it solved so Torrie can get me my tune.

    Torrie has tuned my Fusion Sport. Lifetime updates on tunes, no charge for any retuning.

    Sounds good enough for me then.

    Does he have an adaptive tune that adjusts to the octane rating of what is in the tank?

    These all have knock sensors and the AOR will adjust. I have 2 tunes either way. 87 and 91. I just wouldn't run 87 on a 91 tune and hammer it all the time. I'm sure the knock sensors would take over but I prefer not to have the ECU pull so much timing to compensate. Only takes a few minutes to switch a tune anyway.

    Finally got one that works. This BDX is slow to upload though.... Small but noticeable difference with 87 octane tune. I'll hit the track again soon and see how much of an improvement there is with the tune. Then I'll run 91 octane stock and swap the tune at the track for 91 tune.

    Catch can update. This is what was caught in only 1100 miles. No way I want that getting sucked back into the intake, valves and then burned.

    I’ve had my catch can on for 1100kms, and it’s still bone dry at the moment. Good to see yours is catching things!

    I can't say how efficient that can is. I can only compare to my Steeda from my Fusion and that didn't catch much. This Mishimoto design caught a lot. I just switched out my Steeda one in my Fusion to this style.

    Did the Amazon grille lights. I decided to mount them with screws instead of epoxy. I trust screws more myself.

    Glad to see my light mod catching on:like: Looking good:clap:

    Speaking of Amazon lights, I need to get a few extra sets for future replacement if needed before they go off market...
