Mytouch system was reinstalled and worked properly after the second trip. After more than a month they finally received the new exhaust system. Apparently its a stock issue as the dual exhaust pipes are too close together and they ring. It is a problem I was told has happened to more than just myself. Body kit on right side had a clip come loose and consequently the corner of the kit was sticking off the car at least half an inch. Was fixed in one session.  Replaced entire exaust. Apparently the dual exhaust pipe were too close together; a problem that Ford already knew about. It did take a month to receive the part.
