  1. I'm not sure the pump is compatible I though Ford when from a Delphi system to Bosch/Siemens between the MK1 and MK2. Either way, some of the more knowledgeable guys will no doubt be along shortly to provide more useful advice!
  2. +1
  3. Good to know. Thanks all, I be sure to post back with pics if/when I get one sorted
  4. Hi people, I'm keeping my MK2 diesel Focus and potentially looking to buy a 2nd car (for the wife). I noticed in the MK7, the 1.6 petrol appears to offer significantly more performance than the 1.4 whilst seemingly being able to still offer decent MPG, so it's the engine I'm looking at. Is there anything specific I need to look out for or checking in relation to MK7 in general (but especially the engine)?
  5. A picture would be useful mate
  6. Lad I used to play footy with had his 1.8 TDCI MK2 remapped to about 160 BHP and the difference was day and night. Unfortunately I can't remember where he had it done, I know after a couple of years it was still going strong.
  7. What iantt said!
  8. I used a similar technique mate, I change min every year and it still looks minging!
  9. The types of journeys you are making can make a huge difference e.g. lots of short journeys will cause your MPG to nosedive however mainly longer journeys without lot sof stop start traffic such as 70 MPH on the motorway for a couple of hours a day should see you at 50+ MPG.
  10. The little 90 degree pipe at the rear left of the engine is prone to splitting on the underside. If you can get someone to rev your engine to around 2.5K RPM whilst you run your hands around the pipes, if there is even a small split you should be able to feel it due to the air escaping.
  11. Thanks for the update, it may prove useful in the future to someone else.
  12. fairly confident the Lynx engine injectors don't need recoding.
  13. She did get lumpy before I blanked the EGR, the engine was all coked up but a Terraclean followed by blanking the EGR got rid of that problem!
  14. Very nice...apart form the ESP cost obviously!
