  1. Hi Have owned a Fiesta ST3 for the last month, best car I've driven in 18 years of motoring. Got the Mountune Performance Pack fitted (MP215); makes an awesome car just that little bit more awesome...You'd be mad to not have it;) Now I'm starting to think, hmm, what next? I do like the look/sound of the Mountune Cat Back Exhaust, that's definitely on my list (sadly not in stock at the moment). If you have this exhaust fitted, would you recommend it? I am aware that the stock exhaust has to essentially be 'cut-off', which has me a little nervous, I'll be leaving that to a garage methinks... I'm also thinking of getting the Mountune High-Flow Induction Hose (a nice red one). Looks very easy to fit and, if the claims are to be believed, makes first to second gear & general power delivery that little bit smoother. Being somewhat of a newbie to modifying cars, I am wondering if I will be able to fit this hose easily. I know my way around some basics, but an online video makes it look like I could cope quite easily. Sadly, at the moment, they don't have the hose clips in stock, but I'm sure they will soon. Again, anyone got this hose fitted & would they recommend it? Thanks for any advice. Chris
  2. Hey, can anyone recommend which Induction kit/air filter to put on my mk6 fiesta zetec s, it has a full millek exhaust system on it, thanks
  3. ive done some research on the internet prior to choosing the correct brand of replacment induction filter, most would assume that the best choice to be K&N but i have found Green Cotton Air filter to have the edge over K&N or PiperCross due to Green's manufacturing process being more hands on instead of automated manufacturing. the green filter in bonded with precision to the frame of the filter the results are more air flow in to the filter where K&N use an automated process resulting in over use of bonding glue to the frame of the filter which can spread across the panel restricting flow and performance of the filter leaving is performing less than K&N's original prototype that they use to get their gains figures from. but anyways enough of me blabbing on about the differences, because the information is available on other websites for all to view without me re-typing it lol. to purchase a Green Cotton performance induction filter for your ford and feel the difference for yourself log on to http://www.priracing....php/144/1/ford and get 10% Discount off your Green Cotton Performance filter by using the code FORDOWNERSCLUB10 you can also get 20% Discount off any Ritchbrook branded stock by entering Discount Code: RICHBROOK20 both offers are eclusive to members of special thanks to Ross at Priracing for this kind offer. So here's whats in the box for the focus 1.6TDCi induction filter. Ive decided to upgrade the standard ford induction filter in my 1.6TDCi focus to a free flowing high performance induction filter. and since i was changing it ive decided to create this guide to show others what is envolved aswell as report on the performance difference between the stock and aftermarket direct replacment air box filter. fitting time takes around 15-20 minutes, Tools required are an 8mm socket and a pair of rubber latex gloves So Open the bonnet, remove the battery cover if fitted. and using the 8MM socket loosen the 4 bolts that are holding the lid of the induction box in place. please note the bolts do not pull free/seperate from the lid, they remove from the bottom section but stay inside the lid section by design, Once lid has been removed you will see your heavy stock ford filter, hopfully ford wont have bent your stock filter when putting it in their as they have done with mine. place your hand on the top end of the filter and pull upwards to remove it. once removed, ensure the lid from the induction box aswell as the 8mm socket are stored off of the engine bay and close the bonnet if you are planning to wait a couple of minutes prior to fitting the new filter. this will help prevent any contamination getting in to the induction pipes.
  4. Air Filter Fitting Guides

    Hello all, This is my first post. I've spent a lot of time researching this forum site trying to decide wether or not I should buy a K&N Panel or cone filter or a complete induction kit. I still can't decide... I own a MK5 fiesta zetec(-s?), 1999. First car and i've owned it for a little over 4 months now. I'm wondering if anyone has a guide to fitting an air induction kit please? Should I choose to purchase one, I'd like to know how to fit it in. I think I'm asking because there was discussions about finding your own cold air feed with an induction? Or cone I'm not sure... I understand the air filters don't add much power and to be honest, I'm not after much. It's also for the experience of getting my hands dirty in the engine bay and knowing how things work! Thanks for your help guys. P.s. I know there are numerous posts and topics about air filters but none of them give me the answer I'm looking for!

    Just Fittet my new Mountune High Flow Induction Hose
  6. Hi all I am new to this Forum. My Ford Focus has been sick recently with the most recent issue being swooshing sound coming from engine when accelerating. Anyway I found a 2 inch split in the induction pipe between air box and engine. This must be the cause of the swoosh sound. However, there is some loss of power, probably by 20%. Would this split be the likely cause of the power loss too? I have put tape over the split which has helped the swooshing sound a bit but not completely. I am getting a new part on Saturday from Ford and will get it fitted next week. I have no engine light but: Should I check for error codes once new part fitted? I am not sure whether any sensors would have picked up the air leak and caused the car to go into some kind of safe mode? Or should the new induction pipe fix performance issue? How would I know if car has gone into limp home mode? How do I get it out of that mode if it has? Many thanks Colin
  7. I wanted to ask both ST MP215 and MP(whatever the Zetec S 1.0 is) owners about the part numbers on there air boxes. I'm thinking that I could get the induction kit meant for the 1.0, minus the hose, and fit it to my ST so I wanted to know if the two air boxes are actually the same. Why? Well I want to do this upgrade in stages basically and I prefer to do stuff myself so rather than handing over £600+ to get the hardware and the remap I am just getting the hardware for now. I can get the VAT off the kit so it should cost around £180. I know it wont benefit performance but it should sound nicer and I might be able to haggle with mountune later about price if I just need the remap in the future. I know it sounds crazy but it might just work... humour me :P Here are edited versions of the images of the kit showing just the bits I'm after for comparison: Zetec S ST Here are links to the products I'm on about: Zetec S 1.0 Induction Kit ST 215 w/ mTune
  8. Hi all! :D I've recently (yesterday) fitted an induction kit to my Fiesta and was questioning about the oil pipe coming from the engine into the factory air box. Now the induction kit I have doesn't feature any place to put said pipe so I'm a little confused in what my options are, I have been told the following: - Leave it hanging (as pictured below) - Get a small cone filter/breather for it. - Get a Oil Catch Tank. Now, I assume, the idea of this pipe is an 'output' of gas rather than an intake of air, which goes through your engine to get ride of any harmful fumes however, please correct me if this is not the case. I've tried searching but cannot find a decent answer from someone who really knows their stuff. I don't want to leave it hanging and something harmful happen! Is it just the case maybe of getting a small cone filter for this? I've seen other photos of peoples induction kit (like the one below) and it simply has a cone on this. Any help is appreciated on this, I would rather spend money and be safe :)

  10. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!
  11. Hi all, I'm in now way a boy racer for starters. I have recently become interested in improving the shed of a focus (mk1 Zetec SE, Lefthand drive) I've been driving for the last two years. In this time it has never been serviced, passed 2 MOT's and noticed it was getting horrible to drive. I decided to look at how to make it a little better and over the last few days I've changed the oil, oil filter, air filter and spark plugs. This was all after changing the bonnet as the paint had been ruined by bird crap while the car was sat in Rome for three months under a tree. Now the car is running a lot smoother and seems to be doing better on fuel, I am looking at other ways to improve performance without it sounding like a typical boy racer car. I've looked at air induction kits as they seem to say they improve performance throughout the RPM range and as long as you don't drive like a boy racer it's good for fuel consumption. Is there such thing as a quiet induction kit? They all seem to say they give a louder throaty sound and I'm kind of trying to avoid that. Also if anyone has any advice on how to improve performance in general it would be much appreciated. Cheers, Mike.
  12. Hi, Basically signed up to this to ask a few questions now and in the future. I have a Ford Fiesta 1.25L Style 2004 model. I'm looking to buy a K&N induction kit. I'm wanting the car to sound better than it does despite only being 1.25. Just wondering if the kit will fit onto my car, and what other benefits, if any, it will have. I know the basics about the induction kit i'm just wondering if it will provide me with slightly more power (as this is what some people say) and keep my engine cleaner than normal. cheers
  13. Morning all, First post here so I'll keep it short. Basically, I recently bought and fitted a J! automotive induction kit (Link: I was advised that this would increase BHP slightly and make the engine sound a bit sportier (Both of which it has done) however, it has decreased the range of my fuel tank by about 50 miles! I have been driving as careful as possible and was advised my friend (who is a car fanatic) that no air filter should reduce the MPG of the car (Other than the first time you use it when you tend to rev it more so you can hear the effects) Has anyone else had similar issues? and is there anything I can do short of putting the old one back in?! Cheers
  14. hello all, before i start this is my first thread which involves pics..... As you are aware i make a topic called green cotton vs kn induction and now i have my kn fitted i thought id show you all hows its done. even though its the same as fitting a green cotton but ive done thing else to the system. To aid the induction i have also removed the snorkel that starts from the right hand side of the car and goes to the air box. i have many pics so please feel free to comment and ask questions. firstly i gained acces to the airbox. next undo the four bolts that hold the airbox lid on to the airbox structure. now at this point the lid will pull away and you will have acess to the air filter. Now what i did at this stage was I removed the securing securing screws that hold the grill to the car. There is a reason for this and ill show you. To improve futher airflow to the airbox further i removed the snorkel which was the reason why i removed the screws for the grill to gain access. In the next picture you can see that i have unshipped the grill and the top plastic cover which covers the snorkel. i didnt remove the grill i just lossened it as i wasnt too sure on how to remove it. i didnt want to make too much work for a job that take around ten minutes also if you get me...... once the access was there i removed the snorkel. this is easy but it doesnt come straight out. you have to weave the snorkel out towards the right of the car (left as your looking at it) due to the bonnet lock being in the way but its easy to remove the snorkel. Once removed refit all the securing screws to the body work and now filter fitting time. here is the old filter(well new as the car has just been serviced) and here is what the standard filter looks inside. while the airbox is empty give it a good clean. remove the box if you have to... its held down with two rubber mounts... remember to remove the breather pipe before hand otherwise you may inflict damage to the breahter pipe. Anyways here is the k&n filter in hand wrapped up. Good ebay bargain. arond 37squids brand new. part number if anyone wants to know is E-2993. they dont come oiled so clean and oil your filter before install. for this purpose i havent oiled it due to showing you peeps how its done.. anyways here below is what it looks like fitted in the engine bay. Here is the k&n filter internals.... looks alot better than the standard filter dont you think? here is the difference between the two filters. what i didnt know was that the filter is slightly offset.. dont know if this is the same with the green cotton filters....? once your filter is installed into the intake pipe make sure you line up the plastic disc at the end of the filter in the grooves otherwise your top filter housing assembly will not fit correctly and will not sit. refit the bolts that you removed on removal and remove all tools from area. now start your engine up and give it a whirl. what i found was that there wasnt alot of difference when the engine had know loads apart from the noise. well you can here the turbo spool up abit louder :). but when your out driving there is a good difference. the responce is improved and i think with that snorkel removed there is much more air for the enigne to suck in and with thatshort scoop your left with when you remove the snorkelacts as a ram and it does make a difference. i also tried it with the snorkel back one. but ive decided that its staying off as its not doing any favours to k&n.... i have written done my fuel consuption and then in a months time ill see if there is any difference and by then that will give the ecu a change to adjust. my MPG is 60.7 and thats with normal driving motoway and town driving.... anyways i hope you have enjoyed this and i hope that this will help you decide to either go for k&n or green cotton. one last thing remember to look on ebay for bargins.. happy reading
