Spent Saturday cleaning it and prep for cerokote plastic restoration that SMK found. https://www.cerakote.com/shop/cerakote-coating/R-0GTKIT1004/cerakote-trim-coat-kit. First off, you have to make sure you really clean the trim. I spent more time on my back with a bucket and non-scratching pad. The trim extends way under those bad boys. Bucket and dawn and cloth. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. I'd post pics but don't feel like downloading from the phone to the computer right now. Anyhow, you gotta clean it good and wipe it down afterwards. The kit has little 4x4 inch cloths impregnated with the product. Have to work fast because it dries out quickly. Used a whole box for the SHO. will post pics if requested lol.

I did look at all troubleshooting on the steering rack. Had a whole bunch of dtc's related to abs traction control hand and steering control, Plus YAW sensor. Cleared all DTC and try to make the fault appear again. Yes steering rack started working. Then it started acting up again. C1280-20. Seems that the yaw sensor is faulty. Anyone know where this is located on a MKS?

Have you checked your battery?
It's good I even ran the generator and battery test on it. Just trying to locate where this sensor is exactly. In the SHO it's under the console. Unfortunately there's a lots of little stupid changes on the m k s. Which is why I'm looking for the location of it before I start taking things apart.

Finally put 5 gallons of e30 in my tank and loaded the matching tune for the first time today. Made a few pulls after driving for a bit and did a couple data logs. Whoa baby that's a noticeable difference!

New tires are hooking up nicely, and the meth is nearly dialed in. I've had a smile on my face all night since :D

Not much luck, I can find a part number and it shows a sensor but all the documentation I have says the sensor and data is within the RCM which is under the center console.

Yeah I went to a Ford dealer and they said the sensor array wasn't available anymore. The weird thing is, where it should potentially be, is the RCM. I suspect the parts lookup is wrong on Ford's computer parts system.
Everything I've seen so far as well, indicates the RCM has the sensors in it.

If it helps, I show part # 8G1Z3C187A for the Yaw Sensor.

Apparently the part number and module name is wrong. AA53-14B321-AD. Humm, Made on my B'day.
Had a long talk with someone, who does electrical engineering with Ford systems, about the sensor and system functions. Picked up some interesting conformation to fuctions and tips. I will do write up on it later. If it works out.

Well i knew this day would eventually come but today i pulled the stripes off my sho. After 4 years of being installed. The paint is just fine and sitting out in this northeastern scorcher they came up really easy. Little bit of goo gone and light buffing. Its really hard to tell it had stripes. Over 300$ wasted but buying the expensive wrap i knew when it was time it would come off alright.

The reason, a couple. Top section was really drying out on the roof but the hood and deck lid still looked new. I couldnt buff it back anymore and with Ford Nationals around the corner. I wanted it to look its best. Also i was getting a little tired of the look and liked it better when other motorist thought i was a cop flying up on them lol
