Haven't been on the Flex forums but I'm sure Ecobrick Bob from the SHOforum is on there. He's solid in the 12's with his right?

        Hey MN guys... when is this dyno day already? I need to live vicariously through you guys! Also I apologize for the thread hijack

        Do you mean Torrie? He use to come here when he was ford parts network or something before ford made him remove ford. Fast responses when you email. Was good at getting us discounted parts for our Mark VIIIs. But yea some of the guys have his tune that have had issues. And some people love his tunes, even some n/a guys.

        The Flex is faster then my stock Mark VIII as well as the torque curve is better especially down low. The thing is it is heavier, so that puts a lot of stress on the drivetrain, suspension, etc. So putting down more power you are exposing the weak links with not much extra tolerance. Also some 2012 and the earlier Flex EB have an issue with the water pump bearing and getting coolant in the block. Happened to one guy with a tune. And the PTU has no cooling so once the Ford " life time" fluid over heats it is shot.

          Yes sorry, meant Torrie. And now that you mention it his name does sound familiar here.

          I know, we take my buddies stock '15 Explorer Sport out to dinner every year at Carlisle, loaded up with 7 people it still moves out very well! All your points are valid I just have the control you do. For the power the EB picks up with just a tune I'd have to do it. And yeah I know about the water pump issues on the 3.5/3.7, sounds like a really fun job. I know the SHO guys are always changing the PTO fluid, so I guess it does burn up pretty quick. The later ones finally have a drain plug for this.

          On this note I will stop my thread hi-jack, sorry guys!

                Don't worry about hijacking, I know the mods.

                The SHO and the police vehicles had cooling and a temp sensor added to the PTU. So they have cooling and and over heat warning.

                      oh! Well, that's too bad..

                      but it does simplify my life a bit. I am scheduled to be camping at Lake Itasca the two nights prior..

                      What happened?

                          Of course you are...

                          If it wasn't "scheduled" it would just be called 'being homeless'
