Has anyone with a 2018 or newer mustang with magneride switched to coilovers? Does it run good or does the car throw codes cause it doesn’t detect the magneride anymore?

Magnaride is amazing I would not get rid of it.

Well, its not entirely uncommon to swap in high dollar coilovers for very high performance handling applications. IDK if that's the case here. I certainly wouldn't toss the magnaride just to lower a car.

Magnaride is pretty magic, but at a certain level of performance, the driver may want more control over the tuning of the shocks, and retuning the magnaride is not trivial.

You will be speed limited to 70mph without MR stimulators/emulators. I bought the Xineering ones and they've worked perfectly.

Not only that, even the best Magneride dampers (Shelby R models) are not physically able to act like an Ohlins (JRi, Penske, etc.) level damper on track. They work well on the street and high performance, but they don't have the architecture to create the force like a proper racing damper does. You have to go to the Tractives to get that level of performance, which is a significant spend.
