That's good news Lenny with that gain , i'm sure you can really tell the difference and well worth it

Yes I'm trying not to develope a heavy foot now though lol need to reserve the newly found power.
The remap was 295euro with a 4 week change back option if I wasn't happy.

Only thing I think I'll change is the length of the rear pipes. Get them set back in to the car by 1" inch
I reckon it would look better than at present.

Truth be told I don't really fuss about my mpg.
Afaik it's no different to what an unmapped engine will show.
I do have a heavy right foot though, but average 55-60mpg on motorways and 35-40mpg on urban roads.

Has anyone's turbo's failed on here?

When I was looking on autotrader in the first place for a car, every tdci I looked at seemed to need a new turbo cause literally all of em had konked out :wacko:

One of the main reasons why petrol swung it for me

As long as the oil change regimen is kept up then the turbo will last longer.
The Peugeot engines are renowned for crap turbo's though.

I am aware of this since 7 months after purchase of the focus, had I known about it before purchase id hve gotten a 1.8TDCi but I gota good deal on the focus at the time and had started modding it before I found out abot Dpf and vain lines in the turbo. But I'll live with the cautions i ve had it remapped for more power but not all of the extra power is down to the turbo itself and the new exhaust is over half an inch bigger in diameter from the dpf to the dual exits which will leave less back pressiure on the turbo I've got a high flow induction filter on the way to help with sucking in the air too so the turbo should be under less strane. The final precaution is to fit a codered direct replacment intercooler which have been designed specific for the focus diesel engines and proven to reduce charge temps by over 30%
So after that is fitted theirs nothing I can do except for using wynne's engine flush directly before an oil change to help clear the vain to the turbo
Is their any company that manufactures a direct replacment turbo for the 1.6TDCi ?
I know of a mk6 fiesta owner who has fitted a hybrid turbo but it was all custom fit and no dpf in the mk6 neither.

Sorry to butt in but the fron splitter is custom hand crafted by TripleRcomposites and are shipped pre painted in Gloss black along with stainless steel fixing bolts.
Lining up is very simple just drill out centre rivet on your bumper and replace with bolt then drill holes to correspond with the ones on either side of the splitter.
Fitting mine in the coming weeks, fantastic value less than 130pounds including shipping.

Ordered Custom Heat/ AC control knobs.
Looking for a nice set of Stainless Steel Scuff / Door Sill plates.
Ordered Additional 12v Aux power socket to go in the boot.
Ordered 'S' Sticker for centre spoke on steering wheel.

I will post picks as soon as I can.
