I’m not sure the proper term for what Ford did to “enhance” the engine noise when driving g in ST/sport mode. I’ll admit it’s pretty cool even if it doesn’t sound that cool on the outside.

So more importantly, I think that enhanced sound helps to reinforce the driving experience as it also correlates to the engine speed while accelerating and decelerating.

Here’s my issue,...just today, that noise is gone. Gone. Gone. I’ve tried turning the car off several times but now when I drive in sport mode, it sounds like any other mode. THIS REALLY SUCKS!!!

As far as I know, there is no option or weird pressing of buttons to enable or disable this, is there?

just went and washed the car, got back in, put it in Sport mode and now the enhanced engine noise is gone. i personally enjoyed the fake noise, hopefully next time i get in, it comes back.

I disabled mine in Forscan.

It's nice to actually listen to the true engine sound then some fake noise making it sound better then it actually is.

It's not like the 3.0L sounds bad in the first place. Ford should just stop implementing it.

Wish mine would go away so I can hear the motor. Does my one have a step by step on how to remove it?

Ahhh, looking for the easy way out. If you search this forum it will have your answer and a lot more.

Basically, you'll need a OBDII adaptor, Forscan and the correct module/code to change.
