Just at the research stage but currently looking at the following mods;

Intercooler
De-cat
Stainless Steel exhaust
Re-map
  • Can anyone recommend any good suppliers of an uprated Intercooler specifically for the Mk2 2.0 TDCi?
  • Is this exhaust ok for my model? http://www.europerfo...oduct=555576908

    I'm not sure if my car has a DPF or not?
  • From what I've read, a de-cat for a diesel is ok as an MOT only involves a smoke test for diesels. However they may fail it if they spot it's missing. Do you get de-cat pipes that look like a cat?
  • Any good Ford re-mappers in East Scotland or am I just aswell going down the Bluefin route?
Am I missing anything?

I hate to break it to you but cat, dpf and egr make your car smokeless more or less. So if you get rid of these 3 your car will smoke more

1. DPF stops the least so in theory you can get passed MOT without it.
2. CAT stops more and you would not pass in m own opinion.
3. EGR recirculates a part of the exhaust gases back in, you car will give more smoke but the turbo charger will get fresh air only, this meaning colder air, this meaning better for the air/diesel mixture.
4.There are some idiots that get a sports cone filter and put it on, without taking time to route it so it gets cold air. Instead they just put it near the engine and they get hot air ... but ... i don;t have room to actually tell you all about it. I'm just telling them they are idiots and they would be better off with a panel filter.

PS: No, you don;t get de-cat pipes that look like a cat :) you just get pipes ... as far as i know. Also as i personal opinion, instead of an exhaust get some good breaks ;)

As an intercooler option you can try this :

Exhaust and metalic brake lines :

You could also try a better brake fluid and better brakes.

Don't invest that much in the exhaust, it will make no difference whatsoever ;)

Agreed, a decat is just a straight pipe that replaces the cat.
Some induction kits come with heat shields but probably don't do a great deal.
The colder the air, the denser it is and that will create a larger expansion on combustion.
The EGR for environmental impact is a good idea, but who really wants to push hot dirty air through a system that runs far better on cold clean air?

I wasn't planning to remove the DPF or the EGR.

Well, if you focus has a DPF+CAT filter. You would have to remove both, or just the DPF as i did :), DPF is far more restricting then CAT, just so you know.

Also if you remove DPF only, you have a better chance of passing MOT, and it is the least useful of the three "eco green" :) systems.
All in all, your car your choice, we are just giving an opinion.

Struggling to find out of my car even has a DPF. Called two Ford dealers and both wanted me to come in to check as it's not showing up on their system. If I check on the Ford ETIS site, it's showing as having Euro IV. I was under the impression if it had DPF, it would say Euro IV+DPF?

i believe the 2.0tdci uses the same intercooler as the ST doesnt it??? if so an uprated ST item will be a direct fit.. Airtec do a good one...

Dont know of any mappers in east scotland, but i have used RS tuning in Leeds... cant fault him!!

So if you fancy a weekend away ;) lol

Hi, I have been looking into getting similar mods done for my 2.0 Tdci. I have spoken with many people and as far as I can gather the best option for the exhaust is to remove the DPF and keep the CAT (I know you had no intention of doing so but it DOES make a difference and is cheaper to get it done at the same time - an extra £50 well spent). Longlife exhausts garanteed me I would still pass an MOT doing this and they also do remaps specifically with the DFP removal in mind. Bluefins are good but they are generic to the standard car and will not take into account any of the other modifications you have made. I believe there is a Longlife centre in Ashington which is not a million miles away. Give them a call they are very helpful and do finance if that helps. They also do air filters with heat shields and will install it for you with relocated feeds for better cold air.

Hope this info helps.

Can anyone confirm if the ST intercooler is the same as the 2.0 TDCI?

i think the ST intercooler is bigger than the standard TDCi one, and gives better performance to the TDCi engine when fitted,
the width and pipe fittings diameter are a direct fit but performance wise its a bigger intercooler panel.
also see here it refers to the st intercooler being used to upgrade the TDCi engine

After speaking to the garage that sold me the car, turns out my car doesn't have a DPF fitted (it was an option on my year of car), which is a bonus :)

just go to ford etis and check if you have or not. Also you can see the options the car had when it came out of the production line. It's free and you'll sleep better at night ;)
