  1. Catback exhaust ?

    Hi all! first of all, happy new year 2018 to everyone ! Now, ive been looking foward to change the exhaust, coz i cant even see it lol, and thinking of a catback exhaust coz the whole thing is veeery expensive. But now im not sure if its a worth mod. Its about 500 £ and it seems that only difference is about look and sound? If its so, im not really interested coz i feel its a lot of money for just that. Does it have any better differences ? Ive been looking at milltek one (my fav), cobra, moongoose, and also mountune but not sure if its for 1.0 ecoboost zetec s thats my model car. The main question is, what brand you recommend me and if its really a worth mod. Ive also noticed that its a common mod, so it could be value for money ? currently my car has ITG induction, turbosmart dual port valve and remap from bluefin. Thanks everyone ! Cheers!
  2. Hi guys. I'm new to the forum and this is my first thread so if it's not posting in the correct place I do apologise. I have a MK3 Focus Zetec S 1.6 Ecoboost, I've had her since July and I'm wanting to get a custom exhaust. I was looking at going to a shop to get one built but my boss' close friend is a welder and fabricator that can easily whip up a custom exhaust. He's asked for the exhaust specifications, as in the route the exhaust takes under the car with angles and lengths. I'm guessing this is so he doesn't have to take my exhaust off and copy the corners etc. I've looked through numerous different places to try and find this information but I can't find it anywhere. If someone has this info, or could point me in the right direction that would be brilliant. Cheers. 👍👍

  4. Hello, I have installed a non resonated cat-back Milltek exhaust on my Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost couple of weeks ago. (Needless to say, the sound is awesome!! ) Last week, I changed the stock air filter to a K&N Performance one. Since then, I noticed that the exhaust is much quieter than it used to be. There is a substantial noise reduction, I really need to push the car to actually hear the exhaust... Is there something wrong or is this normal? Regards, Thanasis
  5. Anybody able to help me with my latest issue.... Ive recently developed a whirring/whining noise which is audible when accelerating, and is affected slightly regarding increasing speed, it is a little more lethargic. Thought id open her up today to get a proper look, and was greeted by a decent amount of dirt and possibly oil. Ive attached 3 pictures with the areas if not highlighted. Pic 1 shows the dirt on top of the turbo and the heat shield. Pic 2 is a side on view of the turbo and heat shield and oil pipe covered in dirt. Pic 3 shows under the turbo the areas that appear to be suffering a leak of some kind. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
  6. Direnza Exhaust

    Hi, just bought this direnza cat-back exhaust system for my 2004 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec and received it today. After having a look at it, I have noticed the mounting points are different to what the standard ones are. For example, on the Direnza exhaust, the mounting point closest to the tail pipe is in-line with the exhaust, however, the standard one is at a right angle. Could anyone help me out here please? On the website it says it should fit my car but I'm starting to worry that I've bought an exhaust that won't fit :/ Attached images to give you a better idea of what I mean.
  7. Sold the Mx5 at the weekend and bought this 2009 Zetec S as a more comfortable daily while I spend money on the camper van project. Won't be doing too much to it due to the other project but thought I'd start a thread anyway, as is tradition! Owner didn't know too much about the mods on it so I asked around, it appears to be on cheap Apex springs which actually ride fantastically compared to my MX5 which was on £627 coilovers. It also has a custom, also assumably cheap, why might be a bit too loud for me but only when you want it to be so not a problem really. Trying to see what wheel options I could get away with given the height not being super low but might just respray the current ones for the timing being - all but 1 are tatty and plasti-dipped matt black. Also looking at LED rear lights but I shall try resist! My last project thread: http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=304458
  8. I am looking to make my 2010 ford focus mk2 1.6 diesel sound better, currently have a remap which is the only mechanical thing done, rest is visual, any idea's? I was thinking pop corn limiter for a little extra thing? Want some help brainstorming some idea's, thank you :)
  9. Hi as you can tell from the title I have a 1.0 eco-boost and just wondered on what people's thought were. I've looked on YouTube and I'm sort of favouring non resonated but is it louder than the videos seem to suggest... Will be interesting to see if people have had this mod done! Thanks in advance for any advice!
  10. Hi, I was thinking of getting some H & R 35mm lowering springs installed onto my 1.0 mk7 Fiesta. Does anything need to be re- aligned? Also looking at the milltek cat back non resonated system. Will this affect my mot, emissions or tax? Thanks in advance for any help 😁
  11. Loudest Car Exhaust EXPLOSIONS

  12. Twin exhaust on a TDCI

    Was wondering if a ST 225 Mk 2.5 exhaust would fit on my 2009 1.8 mk 2.5 TDCi ? (See image)
  13. What is the best exhaust for a 2006 fiesta zetec s tdci?
  14. Right, I want to make my Fiesta sound better.. i KNOW its a 1.0 125 but still, there's got to be something that can be done, i do NOT want it to sound like an angry mosquito or a set of bolts in an empty been tin. I also want to keep it legal so no decatting. Thanks in advance :)
  15. Fiesta 1.0 build

    Right I'm starting a build thread for my fiesta red edtion. All I've done so far is a cat back with resonator delete, ordered a intercooler and induction kit which should be coming in the next few days and will update on everything I do. Will get a picture of the exhaust later
  16. So i bought an 05 focus zetec 115ps. £800 few issues, was missfiring sorted that with a full service carried out by myself, whilst perfoming service i noticed a few tell tail signs, first off it appears to have a 1.8 airbox (based on haynes book of lies photo) although im not sure if the ti cvt have the 1.8 box, second the vacuum pipe from rocker cover to airbox is broke and not attached, clutch pedal vibrates under hard acceleration but no slip or noise/smell. What looks like the electric assisted thermostate housing is just loose sat infront of airbox. Fsh up to 2 years ago 144k cam belt done at 98k clutch 122k last owner dor 2 years had no service stamps etc so im assuming all things bad strm from them. after the service and a motorway blast the missing all but disapeared but the EML came on, quick check on a diagnostic showed a catalytic converter bank 2 fault, im led to believe this is from unburnt fuel going into cat during misfire nessing with the sensor, but im not in the know with fords hence why im here. any knowledge of these issues would be much appreciated. oh and 1st is an absolute nightmare to select stiff as you like. cheers rick.
  17. Will a stainless steel custom catback (with resonator) from powerflow deliver a better exhaust tone than a custom backbox from the same company? wanting something loud but not tooo loud and dont want it to sound farty or chavvy.
  18. Ford Focus zetec s 2016 exhaust

    Hey I'm new to this site but I'm looking for making my car sound much sportier, not specifically really loud but sound sporty, I have a Ford Focus zetec s. I have nearly no clue what I'm looking for so any help is appreciated. I'll tag a photo of my car. You can't see the exhaust so I'm not sure if that will make it more difficult. Thank you
  19. Fiesta 1.0 induction & exhaust!

    As the title states, I have been looking for both and exhaust and a full induction kit. The exhaust seems to always be over 200/250 and the induction kit in a similar price range depending on what brands. Does anyone know if you can get a full cat back or De cat for less than 200? And an induction kit for less than 100? Thanks in advance!
  20. Ford focus tdci 07

    New here guys a bit of advice if possible bought an 07 ford focus tdci zetec climate of an old guy I say in his 70s plus don't think he's used it much and not used the motor way either I notice some smoke so I gave it some pace on the motorway as them smoke started to clear but sparks came out of the exhaust so I gave it some rev hopefully it clears next day no smoke 😆 but I'm sensing some smell fume smell I'm guessing any reasonable guess I assume that the crap I blew out on the motorway is the cause is it possible the catalytic conveter could be faulty or so 02 sensor or is it dirty I bought cat cleaner shall I wait till if it cleans it all out and the smell goes ?? From the guy I bought it off had service from 2013 I notice when he drove it he's hasn't gone over 40 mph slow I know but I doubt he's done 60 never mind motorway running
  21. MOT was done last week on my Fiesta, one of the advisories was the current silencer/backbox was corroded, found a new replacement on a car parts website made by Klarius for £24. Wondering if anyone has ever had any problems with silencers made by them, can anyone recommend a better one for similar price or does the Klarius one i've mentioned sound a good deal anyway, thanks.
  22. Just got an St180 exhaust for my fiesta ecoboost zetec . Question is will it fit with the standard rear defuser with longer hangers ? If not i am just goin to cut the tips off and fit it hidden . Ps also have a 45mm to 55 mm connection already . Thanks
  23. MOT advisories advice

    Hi everyone, had MOT done on Monday, failed on its front discs and pads, went to NPA to get replacement ones for £54, do you reckon that's a fair price for new disks and pads or is there other cheaper places/companies to get new parts? the only 2 companies i know that supply new car parts are Euro car parts and NPA. Got the new disks and pads fitted on Wednesday by a family friend for £20. Took it down for it's retest on the same day and thankfully it passed. There are still 2 advisories left to sort out. The first one is i need a new silencer/back box (same thing right?). I've had a look on Euro car parts and they have ones for £30, do you guys think that's a fair price or do you think i'll get a new replacement one somewhere else? the other advisory is that the n/s and o/s/r handbrake cables corroded. The family friend who done by discs and pads said that to fix the corroded handbrake cables all that's needed is a spray can of (can't remember the full name but i remember he said copper something) he said if i spray it on the cables all the rot/rust will come off but will reinforce/strengthen the cables, therefore no replacement parts needed. Does what he's told me sound right to you or will i actually need to order some replacement cables? anyone had similar problems? is it not as easy as that to fix these? will it be an expensive job? thanks.
  24. Decat pipe

    Thinking about fitting a decat to my car, has anyone had any experiences with them? Good bad things apart from the obvious that it will fail an emissions test on MOT. Cheers
  25. Hi all, I've had a look around and pretty sure I could give changing my exhaust system (from back box to the CAT/manifold) just wondering if there are actually any videos of someone doing it themselves? As I can't find anywhere and I've read getting the bolts that attach to the mani/cat are a bit fiddly to get out and it's a one piece system. If not I might have a look at doing a video myself as I feel like there aren't enough for mk6 DIY guides. Thanks, Rhys ✌️
