TboneZX3 If the part says Ford, I doubt they'll ever be any the wiser... That's one reason I like the FFE RMM vs. the third party offerings, or even the MS3 one. Its says FoMoCo right on it!

Seminoles You have to buy the whole box top and bottom around 138.xx but the ST you can buy the top and bottom separate around 25.xx each only difference I can see is the ST doesn't have the sound resonator on the bottom where you cut for the mod. And if they say anything about that being the wrong bottom not having the other piece. Well it came off your lot that way just say maybe they ran out of the other one my 2013 SE looks like the ST one no hole in the bottom I did notice it sounded better then the 2012 SE and a little more power.

Sounds like running premium fuel would be a good idea for this engine. I think you get slight hp gains (2 hp) as well, but the oil rich premium would prevent the engine from running too lean. At least that's how I understand it.

Seminoles I thought that is what PCM's and O2 sensors were for to maintain a 14.7:1 fuel ratio darn how lean is my 2012 when I add the 2013 ST turbo but with lower boost due to 12:1 compression I don't see aftermarket CAI or exhaust leaning a motor enough to burn a piston. For the concern about engine ticking think of how this engine is designed and works now how a modern diesel works this is just a low compression diesel with spark plugs and gives great mileage so I can live with tick, tick, tick.... LOL

TORQUERULES I think we can all agree to disagree. I am just glad the OP is getting his car fixed.

I believe this dead horse has been beat to a pulp...

OK, I understand that you don't truly know what happened. But, you are willing to state in one place that the bottom of the piston was broken, and yet in another you tell us a hole was melted through your piston. Were you not trying to relate your case to the OP's when you stated that a hole was burned through your piston?
