I am looking for a cheap way to get some more power from the focus 1.8 tdci and have seen a number of in line boxes that install between the fuel pressure sensor and the ECU. There are a number of them for sale on the famous auction site but is there a better option without spending more than 100?

Simple answer is no they dont work and no theres no way under 100. A decent chip will cost 400-500. You can put a cone filter on but you wont get astonishing results. A chip will give about 35bhp increase and 70nM torque.

Thanks SieraYankee, I take it the air filter is a slight restriction then? Is there a site you could recommend that do the chip upgrades?
Thanks. Simon

No the air filter inceases air flow

Sorry that is what I meant, the standars filter is restricted.
