  1. Wheel torque question

    I know the owner's manual specifies 150 ft/lbs for the wheel torque, but I wonder if Ford changed the studs so they're harder steel? I'm asking because the size of the stud is essentially what earlier cars and F-150 used where the F-150 was torqued to 100 ft/lbs. The thicker diameter studs used...
  2. Extending the ACC run time

    If I turn ACC on to listen to my radio, the system always turns off after 10 minutes. Is there a way to extend this time period in some way perhaps in some hidden engineering/dealer mode or something? It's kind of annoying to have to cycle the Start button to turn it back on every 10 minutes...
  3. Oil life question

    Out of curiosity, what kind of mileage are 5.0L guys getting on their oil life monitor? I'm on my original oil since new and have just over 1,900 miles on it and my oil life is at 39%. Based on that, I'm guessing my oil life will reach 0% with just over 3,100 miles on it. Is this what you guys...
  4. Tire size calibrations

    I was just wondering if there's a way to calibrate the vehicle's system if you change the tire size on the car. Say, if you were to replace the stock 18" wheels with 19" and the overall diameter of the wheel and tire is smaller or larger than the original stock tires, how would you reset it so...
  5. 2020 Base GT tires

    My GT is a base model that came with the 18" wheels with 235/50R18 Pirelli tires on it. I checked some tire dealers and they indicated that the wheels are 18x8 so I could use 255/45R18 tires on it. I'm not sure what the width of the rim is so if they're correct I could put some wider tires on...
  6. Traction Control / AdvanceTrac On or Off?

    I have a question on how to get the lowest ET for 0-60 and 1/4 mile test using TracApps. Should I have Traction Control or AdvanceTrac on or off? Or AdvanceTrac in Sport mode? I'm just thinking that if it's turned off (either one) wouldn't you just smoke the tires thus losing precious time in...
  7. Fuel gauge accuracy?

    I just got a low fuel warning on my 2020 GT today saying I have 50 miles to empty. The gauge reads precisely 1/4 tank and it doesn't make sense to me. If it has a 16 gallon tank, 1/4 tank would be 4 gallons (most vehicles also have a small amount of "reserve" even after hitting empty) and my...
  8. Extracting oil through dipstick tube

    I'm wondering if anyone has tried to extract the engine oil through the dipstick tube? The top part of the plastic tube seems large enough but due to the sharp bend right at the beginning, I'm wondering if either a silicone or polyethylene hose (1/8" or so?) would work. I only need to draw out a...
  9. TrackApps

    I know that the acceleration tests in TrackApps would show ET for the 0-60mph trial. My question is if you select the 1/4 mile test, does it display both ET and speed the car hit at 1/4 mile? Just curious because the manual doesn't have details about it and I'm still breaking in the engine (only...
