  1. I had similar problem. The issue is related to a popped hose. Either from the intercooler exit to the intake manifold OR the turbo exit back to the intercooler. Check for oil leakage or spray of oil. I am pretty sure its a blown hose. Best you replace all your hoses to silicone type ie Samco etc. They last way longer. Note - my ford hoses appeared to be cracked when i took them out to inspect. My leakage was at the intercooler to intake manifold ( split at the intercooler side)
  2. Harlow Jason! fancy seeing you here :P So to the rest - this is how it actually looks like with proper pictures.
  3. Thanks for the warm welcome. I had a shop reckon to get the existing turbo out and get the hybrid work done on it. Enlarged cores and a new set of uprated fins can be slapped on to it. However, i have approx 35000 KM left to go for the warranty to expire before actually touching it. That would probably the the approach i take. Just wondering if anyone has done a turbo upgrade on a focus tdci yet.
  4. Hey guys, I'm from Malaysia and here's my TDCi Mk 2.5 with a 2.0 liter duratorq engine with a 6 speed powershift transmission here's what i've done with it - Fitted better stiffer adjustable shocks for the front and sport shocks for the rear - from a custom shock builder from malaysia called Titan - Fitted an Airtec ST intercooler - Fitted JBT uprated Rotors - 330 mm front and 320mm rear with EBC green stuff on the front and ford originals on the rear with a custom steel braided hose - 2.5 inch decatted exhaust system with a single 2.5 inch s-flow box at the back - Foamed the entire chasis - A,B,C pillar and the under carriage - had a custom map for the car installed - which brings the power from stock 139hp with the mods above to about 171hp and 393 nm of torque. - had some skirt and an RS spoiler fitted as well. - samco hose replacement for all the hoses from the intake manifold, intercooler and the turbo side Note - only Euro2m biodiesel is available in this country for fuel I am thinking about getting a hybrid turbo installed to gain a few more horses. Thoughts on that? Looking out at options to increase any available power
