Installed today. Opens pretty smooth. Definitely harder to close.
Been awhile so figured I'd post an update. Long read, but I included pictures...
RS is currently at Ford (got a Lincoln MKZ this time around) getting the head-gasket redone since I had mine completed right after the recall started and there has been some changes with the work that needs to be done. For those of us that had the work done early Feb 2018 before the supplements were added, have experienced oil leaks from the front cover which drips down to the turbo feed fitting. So after having the fitting changed multiple times, we've finally found the source of the leak and it's getting fixed.
What it looked like for me:
Taking advantage of the situation, I'm also having the tech install some ARP Head Studs which Panda Motorworks thankfully was able to overnight to the dealer for me. Thanks to them for getting them packed, shipped and delivered to Chicago in less than 24 hours in a ice/snow storm. Also changing the plugs to Panda Motorworks pre gapped (.028") NGK 1 Step Colder Spark Plugs. In addition I'm finally getting the Mishimoto #teammishi NB Silicone Coolant Hoses installed that have been sitting in the garage for the last 6 months.
Ford is also replacing my under tray that was destroyed in the 1st snow this year.
Ford is installing these clamps that I bought since my seat likes to shift when turning. They are Yogi Bearing 13/16" Inch Double Split Shaft Collars
Found out the cup holder holds Red Bull cans perfectly.
About a month ago I found someone on the facebook groups that makes alcantara arm rest covers, so I bought and installed one. No more seat rubbing noise. One of the best low cost upgrades I've done.
And lastly I sold my Full Blown Aux kit since I didn't think I'd ever install it, plus I drive about 400 miles a week and filling up everyday didn't sound like the best idea.

Nice. Could you PM me the info for who did the Alcantara console cover?
Mishimoto #teammishi NB Silicone Coolant Hoses
Finally made the decision and went with Satin Black...
Only way to go imo to properly match the spoiler.
Plates just ruin everything...
Finally got around to installing the WGA today and loading the 1st version Panda custom tune. Wasnt too bad to install; just had to be careful with the bottom head shield bolt and the clip holding the WGA on.
