Just curious, how did you measure chassis torsional stiffness on a Mav? Thanks.

I didn't. What I do know is that pulling or pushing the rod front to back 1/4" causes the strut tower near the top to move inboard .0015. I don't know if thats per side as I can't set up 2 dial indicators at once. I don't have anyway to move the tower without the rod attached.

If you dont mind. How much did the materials cost to build the strut bar? The Steeda is only $125. Do you feel it was worth diy?

The materials were $77. I made the bar for fun but I also have a lathe. Yes it was worth it. The strut bar, Steeda rear sway bar, and Timbren rear springs with a 1/4" preload. The Mav really corners. 35mph corners @ 70, yahoo!

I've looked everywhere and no one has a part number for the engine cover. Would you happen to know it?

Mercury 2.0. I made the badge from 1/8 aluminum. The screw to hold it down was from leftover TV wall mount screws with a spacer I made to put under it.. The 2 ball mounts that were on the engine fit perfect. Thats all ya need tp hold it on. I got my cover on ebay from a Ford dealership

As far as I know, the Ford Ecoboost cover is no longer available. (It was also sold for the Ford Escape 2019 2020 2021.) That’s the one you’d want to put on the Maverick to be “original.”

We put a Lincoln one on, but replaced the Lincoln logo badge with a “Turbo” badge I found on Amazon that is exactly the right size.

I’d still like to find an EcoBoost cover …
