  1. Happy Birthday SteveThePirate!

  2. Hey Nico. going to use my gaffa tape idea ;)
  3. Ebay is good for a cheap simple one, looking for something more special(pricey) then cherrybombs
  4. Data from parkers.com on the 08 1.6L Petrol Titanium Engine Size 1596 cc Cylinders 4 0-60 mph 9.6 s Power Output 118 bhp Valves 16 Torque 152 Nm 112 lb-ft Top Speed 120 mph
  5. I put £35 in the other day and only got 30L. It makes me feel cheated, since although im 17 i can remember the days of 80p a litre and the riots/strikes etc that happened when it reached a £1. Now no one seems to care.
  6. Well i had a thought about like cutting the front bit of the cold air feed off. so it still is connected by the two top screws but now it can take air from like all the front rather than one side.
  7. ok..well would it be a better idea to unplug the cold air feed? since i looked at it today and it seems like ford are very keen to put as much plastic in the way of cold air getting to the stock box as possible.
  8. ah right. so im not missing out on much then :)
  9. Apart from the changed headlights and body kit ?
  10. Well there much be some benefit behind it otherwise people wouldn't be so interested in cold air feeds and getting rid of the standard air box.
  11. Since ford decided to put the air box directly on top of the engine I find that it heats up very quickly, causing performance/mpg drops. Since insurance wont let me change to a cone air filter any ideas on ways O can stop the air box getting hot without invaliding insurance ? :)
  12. spent the day filming a car race

  13. You mk7s have nothing on the mk6..apart from being faster,lightweight, more efficient and more features.
  14. Do you think/ is there a way to put user videos on the FOC videos section. My friend is making a movie soon so would love to put it on the site for all to see. And im sure other users have videos they would like to share :P Thoughts on this?
  15. That cars tyres must be messed up. Although how the car got like that I dont know, since no one drives sideways on a motorway
