  1. Maybe you should try being constructive then??? Instead of trying to massage your ego by sifting through posts for things that arent to your exacting standards. I would imagine It's pretty easy to sit at a keyboard trying to make people feel small whilst you sit their marvelling at your own superiority but I think you'll probably find that most people understood what was a brief afterthought of a post. I'm sure many mechanics also probably just call it an intake regardless of its component specific part description. The fact that you bothered to pick up on that shows just how important it is for you to make yourself seem superior rather than just being helpful. Lastly whilst I may not be a qualified mechanic you don't have any authority nor any basis to judge what my level of understanding of engines is. I don't require your appraisal for anything regardless of how long you've been about. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. It's not a waste of money if it works though is it ? I'm just telling you what the product claims to do. You spray it into the intake of the turbo. Withe the air intake off hose off so you don't damage the maf. After it breathed new life into my old disco I've used it since. You can dissect what you like mate from what I've written but I'm just stating the directions from the back of the can. it's a bit childish really if you want some recognition for being some great mechanic go work for Brabus or something . if you haven't used it you can't really comment on if it's a waste of anything.

  3. Directly into the inlet for the turbo. Before maf sensor. Just de hunks everything and Teflon coats beArings from what I understand Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. I did think I'd be forking out on injectors the way it was running but it's absolutely spot on now. Normally goes the other way with me. Normally the expensive bits fail first for me ha ha. Read a few thinks about adding mineral 2 stroke to the diesel tank to keep the fuel pump and injectors in order. Some guy somewhere had taken it to another level with research and positive results so I'm currently running it in my tank. I'll let you know how that goes. Maybe good maybe not. Car is a little quieter from the start so far that's all I've noticed. I'm putting the lack of any smoke to the fine work I've done with the manifold and intercooler lol. But time will tell.

  5. Judging by the carbon build up caused by the egr in my tdci they do nothing but cause you an extra headache later on in the cars life. The build up reduces the airflow through the intercooler and inlet manifold and the efficiency and mpg suffer ridiculously from it so how it's good for the environment I have no idea Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Also I do tend to use a product called 10k boost it's a treatment sprayed directly into the turbo. Swear by it after using if on a lazy discovery. Expensive but worth if.
  7. I spent about an hour and a half once relying on Haynes to get gear linkages off turns out they twist off the opposite way which I didn't try incase I broke it off. Not amused. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. I've just had this very problem. Mine was also accompanied with a judder on over run around 2000-2250 rpm when I backed off gradually on the accelerator. From a stand still it looked like the end of the world in my rear view mirror because the smoke was getting gradually. I took the usual wishful thinking steps by servicing. Next step I took the egr valve off and then the inlet manifold and cleaned the inch thick layers of carbon off and put it all back together. Took it for a spin. Still the same. Only slightly less black smoke. By chance I checked the intercooler hoses and found a split. Not all the way through but being held together by the weave inside the hose. Replaced with a silicone one and took out for a spin. Power totally restored no smoke no surging no juddering on over run and more importantly. Mpg up from a terrible 44.2 to an impressive IMO 54.6 mpg. All for a 20 quid silicone hose from flee bay.
