  1. Hi All, I have been looking around the internet reading up on the ecoboost engine trying to get an idea what could be possible with the 3 pot beauty. I am just looking to see if any one is planning on doing anything to their engine at all? if so what you will be going for.... Any one have any ideas on what would be a good starting point on finding a bit more grunt from the engine. My friend had a subaru impreza and i remember him fitting a boot control valve to increase his boost pressure, would such things be possible with out ecoboost engine? Any one with ideas please post :)
  2. Hi all, i have been looking through the forums to try and figure out what has happened to my focus, i bought a tuning box from a tdi tuning company, it came with a money back guarantee which i have had to use, after i put the box on the car was using a hell of a lot more fuel, i mean a lot - without any noticeable power gains, so after a few days i decided it wasn't for me, however ever since i installed it, and now even more so since i removed the box my car loses power, glow plug light flashes and the car dies! i turn the ignition off and on and away it goes. the car has had a fully synthetic oil change 3 months ago along with all filters, coolant etc. I removed the cam sensor as advised on other posts here but i cant really tell by looking at it if its ok. I also last month cleaned the egr and maf sensor. im hoping this dam tuning box hasnt messed up the injectors or fuel pump, as when i restarted the car after it died the other night there was a horrible whining coming from the engine bay!! this went away as i stopped the car straight away. also im thinking of getting it on a diagnostics machine but surely there wont be any codes if the problem is intermittent? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, cheers in advance!!
  3. Window Tint Advice

    I'm looking to get my windows tinted on my zetec s, but I'm stuck between what shade, either limo black or medium, the company doing the tints recommend medium however I've seen other zetec s' around with what looks like darker than I imagined medium would be. If anyone has their windows tinted would you be able to post a photo with what shade it is to help me decide.
  4. Tuning Box Vs Remap - Help

    Hello All, I pick a new car up on Monday and due to what they had i took the 100ps model and looking to have it remapped / tuned. As this is new and may be an issue im looking to see the options of reverting back if this has to be given back etc. Now you can get box's which will revert back to factory, What are these like? Any recommended names? Is this worth it against remapping? Remapping - How can you revert back to factory, is it possible to save the ECU config and then have that added back via a tuning garage? All help on this is appreciated and woohooo now a ford owner :P
  5. Relatively New to this kind of thing but I was wondering if anyone has had an aftermarket exhaust fitted to there fiesta Black or Red editions? If so is it worth doing and do they sound half decent :) Cheers

  10. Mondeo 115 Remap

    Hey all, I was hoping someone could tell me is it safe to remap a 2005 mondeo 115ps LX. It has just under 150,000 miles, the injectors and DMF aren't giving any trouble, they appear fine. I am hoping to get it up to 140-150. Is this advisable? Best regards, TommyC115

  12. So I'm a proud new owner of a 2014 Ford Fiesta ST (5 door since I live in the US), and I'm interested in doing some upgrades to increase performance. I'm not necessarily looking to gut it and turn it into the next track car but just so that I can make it a little bit more fun to race around in. I also wish to go about changing it from front wheel to rear wheel drive, so if anyone has any expertise in that area your input will be greatly appreciated :) THANKS!!
  13. Tuning Box

    Can anyone tell me if a Tuning box actually works , i don't know weather to get a box for my 2007 fiesta tdci or just get it re-mapped , i've had a few quotes about re-mapping in Derbyshire where i live but my trouble is which one to trust , so if their is anyone who knows someone in Derbyshire who can genuinely be trusted to do a genuine re-map job then i may consider if the price is right , i've been ripped off before for work on my fiesta to the tone of £1000 this is why i'm cautious

  17. Diy Window Tinting

    Hi all, Has anyone attempted to tint their own windows? If so have you used pre cut tint or did you buy the rolls to give it a proper tint? How hard or easy a job is it and what has the final outcome been? Seriously thinking of doing mine and was just wondering which is the best for tinting as i have found this http://fkperformance.ie/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=71&product_id=205 Help would be greatly appreciated lads.
  18. What's up FOC peeps, Just been sitting here and thought about this a lot but wanna see what other people's thoughts are about this. What are some of your favourite car modifications that you do or would wanna do? Mostly on my mind things such as lowering the car on coilovers or springs, exhaust modifications, engine re-maps and things like that? See what other people are thinking ? :) UkPhilLad
  19. Dubshed 2013

    Hey Guys, I know that this might not be of interest to everyone but on the 7th April there was a car show held in Belfast, Northern Ireland called DUBshed. As a huge car enthusiast, I always like to check out modified and tuned cars, see new ideas and appreciate the amount of work that other drivers put in to show their pride in their cars. My first encounter with DUBshed was on at the same time last year, when a colleague of mine who owns an astonishing example of Audi A4 1.9TDi told me about it. Ever since then, I have been following the scene around Northern Ireland and the Republic. Anyways, without much further ado, just wanted to put up a few pictures from this year's display and hopefully you guys will enjoy it :)
  20. Focus Mk2 Makeover Video

    What's up dudes & dudettes :) It's been a while since I posted on the forum (overwhelmed with college work!!) but came across this video and must say, it's very good :) Have a look and see what you think :)
  21. Hi. I recently purchased a 51 mondeo diesel estate. My previous car was a saab 95 aero estate and sold it due to the rocketing fuel prices. Going from my saab to the mondeo was quite a shock in more ways than one. Not only was I getting 3 times more milaege out of the ford but it was doing it rather sluggishly. Someone advised me to buy a chip to raise the BHP from 115 to 147 (give or take) so I purchased one which plugs directly into the common rail. This is where I ran into problems. I went to fit it today and could not find the common rail, or anywhere I could plug the chip into. Any ideas where I would plug the chip into or have I bought the wrong chip. If so can anyone recommend a chip that I can use (assuming I can) Heres a link to where I purchased it from. http://www.racechip.de/en/chiptuning/ford/mondeo/3-b4y/2-0-tdci-85kw/index.php Thanks ever so much Andrew
  22. Hey all, Just a quick question to see if anyone is aware of this. Did Ford ever make original Bi-Xenon headlamps for the Focus MK2?? Was looking on the internet to see if i can get any after market ones, but don't seem to be spoiled for choice Reason I am looking for them is that am still having an issue with my xenon conversion kit. Installed it there a while ago until recently more and more drivers started flashing their lights at me when driving past!! Then the Police stopped me and told me that I need to have the projector headlamps installed at least, otherwise the light is dispersed and hence blinds the other drivers!! When I went to the Ford dealership, they said they don't supply any headlamps like that. When asked about the ST ones, they said they are 400 quid a set and will have to play around with them to get them fitted!!! Any help would be much appreciated guys :)
  23. Hi Guys this is my first post but i have read the site on and off for some time. I am so unfortunate to live in a country that hate cars and therefore taxes them quite hard. So I did what most people do I bought the entry level 2010 Mondeo TDCI 2.0 with 115 HP wich even after a big discount cost over 34.000 £ . I’m happy with the car but I wish I had the cash to buy a more powerful version. Therefore I have been looking at getting the car chip tuned for a while now. The standard tuning with the boxes offer me about 25 extra HP and a more flat Torque curve. The boxes all have in common that the different versions of the 2.0 gain the same 25-30 hp. But then I found BSR Tuning which offers ODB tuning and promises that my car would have 199 HP after the tune. This is just phenomenal and would turn my rather slow car into a rocket (at least by my standards :-) But I have worries about such a high increase in power because isn’t there other difrences betreen a 115, 140 and a 163 HP 2.0 TDCI than the values in the ECU? Also how about the brakes clutch etc. So I was wondering if any of you have experience with this tune or have information about the physical difference for the different models of 2.0 TDCI’s You can find the tune kit here http://www.bsr-tuning.co.uk/products/t2275/ i know it says not available but they are already selling it in other countries so i hope that some of you have experience.
  24. What's up everyone, Just wondering if anyone on this forum has had any experience with installing a coilover set on their car and if so, which brand did they go for? Also, how did it feel after the change(eg. Ride quality).
