I want to say that I saw it under $40 on Amazon back in the day, though is it listing at $42.60 currently.

Like I said earlier, my car still tends to have confusion on some 90 degree turns. While some others have said that their car 'learned' it, some say theirs hasn't, and I just got used to using the rocker.

Dyn085,

Wanted to follow up and say thanks for the suggestion on the K&N filter helping with the sluggishness!. I got my filter last friday and must say the improvements are quite noticeable for me. Definitely less bogging and WOT is way better than before!.

Thanks again!.

I'm glad you are pleased with it!

I've done a lot of testing, on road and dyno, to try and come up with plenty of options for many people who don't want RACECAR and simply want to improve on the cookie cutter we've been handed. I had many of the same little gripes with my car initially. Some things can't be fixed, some take time, some take a little cash, and some take a lot.

On that note, if you want to see another 6-7 hp, then do the snorkel delete and cut one rubber flap underneath it. At that point, we are pretty much exhaust limited...

I will trade it in when I can afford it. And this time im going foriegn! Thank you ford motor company , You have destroyed any faith a whole lot of people had in you. You coulD always do what you do best.

Wow quite the transformation. So you're not going to go buy a Hyundai now?

If only Allyy had the same experience, he/she might still be around these parts....

Wait, wait, please clarify for me. Did they offer and gave/sell you another car to replace to one you had or are you just talking about a loner while they were working on yours ?

What did they do? the Reprograming (TSB12B37) that everyone is getting, or something newer?
