We share pretty much same exact engine and previous transmission , so maybe not that difficult

There was some talk of torque vectoring and they have even more "safety advancements" and I'm wondering
how much of that is tied into the main ECM. (especially any new sensors we don't have).

My MKZ already does the dynamic torque vectoring. I mean I don't know how SCT works on these newer vehicles but on my 96 thunderbird it was pretty simple stuff. They had drop in files to load for all kind of transmission swaps to shut off the auto portion for manual swaps.

But I would kill to have an 8 speed. It was the main reason I was waiting for the 2018 model and contemplated waiting for the 2019 but the rumors of Ford dropping the sedans made me buy. And I'm glad I did. The options are completely gutted and no black label available for 2019 model.

What would be the point? Spend thousands of dollars to gain a mpg or two?
Couple MPGs, less strain on the drive train, better, more gears for speed management. Faster acceleration. The only thing I could see being bad about this is our final drive ratios. It may need a differential gear change to go with it.

I need to look into seeing how to add the DTV to the Fusion. Hopefully the programming could be added to the Fusion and with a rear drive unit swap everything will work

Maybe you just swap the RDU in and swap the ecu from an MKZ.

Honestly, if SCT would unlock tuning on the MKZ then it could possibly be a matter of swapping parts and tuning but I'm not entirely sure.

It's not about that mostly. It's about acceleration.
Except the 2nd gen Edge Sport with 6F55 is faster 0-60mph than the Edge ST with the 8F57 despite the ST having more power & torque. Also, welcome to the forums.
