  7. Escort Gti Mk6 Mods?????

    toataly agree with most of the above but jobs at home start with a dremmel take of both manifolds inlet and outlet as ul find welding ribs or plastic casting ribs smooth and polish these smooth. think this way when thinking of induction and exhaust . free flow!!! no ribed ducting sweeping bends try not to have too many bends either a 4 into 2 into 1 manifold is the way forward in exhaust . cost about 200 if u find a off street exhaust center. to make u 1. always think about getting a upgraded fuel pump to cope with u booting it about .. run it at a higher pressure at the fuel rail. soo fre flowing maniolds free flowing air filter (a ram induction kit) cold air intake fuel rail pressure then afer any mod to the engine tuning .. r road is best to find any flat spots. and remap and rr tune again also think of waight .... ie .. go for a spin.. then take the back seats and spare wheel out then go on the same run. let us know what u do.. good luck..
