  1. Mountune might be pricey and seem that they're peak power is lower than others claimed,but their power is usable and usually have more power where it matters. example, mr230 kit is only 15bhp more than an mp215,but through the Rev range at points the mr230 is producing up to 30bhp more,don't just look at peak figures ,read their graphs. wouldnt trust puma speed I've read a lot of bad on them,Colin's performance and revo are highly rated though.
  2. Might not be 100% on this,but I'm pretty sure the tuning boxes are a con,and if they do work all they do is change the fuel/air input and can cause problems,honestly better getting a remap from superchips or similar.
  3. Better call Saul! Aha surely if you're going modify this car you're going to lose the warranty anyway,if the regulator goes I'm pretty sure the turbo would revert to safe mode rather than let any level of boost into it,also if the turbo does blow and as you said intend to mod,just got a hybrid turbo and go stage 3..
  4. Anybody?
  5. I stripped my mk5 2001 Zetec s out a while ago after the engine blew,I've got the front seats and my mate has a 2002 1.4 Lx,will the mk5 seats straight swap into it?
  6. Got a 2012 merc sprinter last week,it's governed to 75mph and I've also read it restricts power in all gears slightly,they're governed by Mercedes themselves on models after 2012 from what I've read. will a superchips remap remove the limiter?
  7. Took it to the post office as Stoney said,the new keeper slip is 11 digits and the site asks for 12 so idk, new car though and loving it! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  9. Bought a car today, I have the v5c/2, it's ref number is 11 digits and the websites asking for 12 so I have no idea how to tax it right now?
  10. Been looking at 2.0 St150,wasn't sure if this one was burning oil,didn't have a lot on the dipstick either. Is there any major things to check tht are common to go on these?i don't mind getting stuck in fixing the niggles,just don't want a motor that's gonna give in to me. Looking at one today with a full service history at 92k,any majors coming up for the next service or stuff that start to go? Thanks for any replies,appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  11. Didn't buy it and he sold it this morning, was a 2008 with 86k in blue with Sony unit for £2300 was a good price
  12. Looked at mk6 lastnight and to be honest it all looked good,had a slight squeak on the belt at cold,no codes on the dash hidden display,the gears when shifting seemed a little reluctant for example,in second to pull it out of second it was hard to find neutral straigt away but maybe that's just where it's a diferent car to the mk5 lowered go kart I drive lol. Any help? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  13. Why the hell doesn't it have one , it has the flap you flick off, but there isn't even a screw hole to screw one into it? REAR TOW EYE/hook stupid tablet
