Description: Platinum Mist White Fusion SE with 2.0 ecoboost engine.

Arrived with 180 miles on odometer and factory 18 inch wheels. Factory installed front tire spats. Will be interesting to see what can happen with mileage as the engine becomes broken in during the next few months.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Removed spare tire and jack
Upped tire pressure to 50 PSI
Changed oil to full synthetic Mobil 1 at 2100 miles
Removed rear seat headrests and passenger headrest
Removed rear floor mats
Removed 85 pounds from the driver, much easier to get into and out of the car

Installed pieces of duct tape to fastener heads protruding below the front of the car to increase areo effect before the factory belly pan begins 10-31-2016

Installed larger front tire spats 11-6-2016, will begin the testing in the next few days to see if the taller and wider Coroplast spats are of any help.

Installed rear tire spats of my own custom design using Al angle stock and Coroplast. With some flat black paint they look like a factory installation.

Installed a Scan Gauge II 12-15-2016 and am learning a great deal about the mileage capabilities compared to the factory installed economy gauge on the dash.

Planned Mods: Remove more pounds from the driver
