Hello, It's me again, I'm back after a long period of absence due to back problems....
Now, I need your help......

I am looking for a good version of IDS VCM, unlimited license. I have already the (copy) ROTUNDA VCM,I only need the SW (eg, version 76, 78, 80) unlimited license.
Have already had an earlier version, but that did not work well .....
It is my intention to increase turbopressure a little bit....
Thanks

can you do that through IDS??

I'd have thought youd be better off with the Galletto software etc...

Can it also be done by a simple (re)mapping?

yeah boost pressure can be turned up in a simple remap...

I will keep you updated. I think,I should better go to a tunigcompany......
I have read on the forum of a Hungarian Ford Club, you could do that best with the IDS. Perhaps to obtain a better alignment of the "adjustments" ...

Is it a mk3 2.0L TDCI ?

Is it euro3 compliant or euro4?

Does it have an electronic or pneumatic (turbo) actuator?

Most remaps do not actually control boost pressure directly, they often increase the duty cycle (basically squirt more diesel in) of the injectors and this, in turn increases the energy from the exhaust which makes the turbine spin up faster meaning peak boost pressure is reached quicker (without actually increasing peak boost - the turbo reaches a "plateo" where increasing the boost pressure does not increase the gas-flow significantly anyway)

Are you running a stock turbo?

It is a Mk3 2.2 tdci, EURO 4, with an ELECTRONIC actuator ( :) the black box) AND adjusted turbo...-larger impeller (+ / - 20% more air input), airtec I.C., CAF & piper cross airfilter, an empty kathalysator and FF exhaust...now running aprox. 195 hp / 400+ nm torque, top speed 240 km/h - 149 mph :)

oooww, and lowering springs& KONI shock absorbers

Thats a similar spec to mine, do you have dyno printouts you could post on here?

Did you make the cold air feed yourself?

I made the CAF myself, yes
Sorry, no I have'nt got the dyno printouts anymore.....
Here, you can see the CAF, besides the 'FORD' oval...

Nice work - you probably know the tubing before the airbox is more restrictive than the filter itself

the air intake facing the airflow does not give any supercharge effect even at max speed - a NA F1 travveling at 200mph gets about 3% supercharge, that is with a big scoop and no air filter , any kind of filter negates this

the air intake facing away from the heat of the radiator/ aircon helps to reduce heatsoak though

I have a massive insulated CAIS intake going in through the "fog light" ive gas-flowed de-webbed my airbox as well

Did you gas-flow/ de-web your airbox?

You probably thought i wanted to see your dyno printout to see check figures (shame you don't have them ) but i am interested to see the effect the hybrid turbo has on the powerband and i also have this theory that with the euro4 engines with the electronic actuator the power drops off above 3500rpm

Im concentrating on making mine more "drivable" rather than "chasing figures" im getting mine dyno'd this year, im expecting about 180Hp / 400Nm my mate has a BMW 330D, it is 220Hp stock, he is getting a remap DPF/ decat - to 270Hp (and a "mountain" of torque) the (stock) BMW is RESTRICTED to 155MPH - i like my Mondeo, though - but im never going to get BMW330D power out of it (no matter how much work i do on my car)

mine is a "sleeper" estate (looks "ordinary") - a 330D looks like an M3 (not so good as a "sleeper")

i never drive over 130, (safely off road, of course :D - )(just kidding- clean licence for 9 years) but i got a revised map (Superchips did a special one for me/ my cars unique modifications) and i timed a 5.3 second 50-70mph in top recently - for me, thats more use to me on UK roads than a high(er) top speed

Of course with the electronic actuator the ECU has direct control over the actuator and the boost pressure

On similar setups upping the boost may require higher flow/ modified/ bigger injectors (hard to get) (the injectors become the limiting factor - no matter how big the turbo compressor/ boost is) - unless you run alternative fuel

you probably know the tubing before the airbox is more Restrictive than the filter itself?? To be honest, I did not know . :huh:. oopsI've driven awhile without filter and that was indeed a difference. However, unfiltered air ..... I do not know. I already thought about mounting a mosquito into the inlet mouth & leave the filter behind....should I dare to try it?

the air intake facing away from the heat of the radiator/ aircon helps to reduce heatsoak..In any way, I've not the impression that the inlet(air)temperature = high: max. 40° at full load.
ive gas-flowed de-webbed my airbox as well ,Did you gas-flow/ de-web your airbox? Sorry, what do you mean by this?? I have not done it, i simply connected the airtube onto the airbox-inlet, that's it.

i also have this theory that with the euro4 engines with the electronic actuator the power drops off above 3500rpm....well, that I experience also...
Mine is also a sleeper(Panther Black HB), no "outside-tuning" ,exept 18" wheeling & 225/40 hi speed AVON'S ( during summer)


I frequently feel "the need for speed", then I go towards the German autobahn (motorway), there is no limitation on speed, so I can play freely ..Than, it is a pleasure to drive the Mondi. :)
Of course, the other aspect of the mapping (torque) is also great,
I can also highly appreciate that.

Yes indeed, they are hard to find, I'm also looking for them (injectors)


In Belgium there is someone with a 2.2 tdci which is mapped upto 250 bhp.
The person who did it:

In the UK we are stuck with thev 70MPH limit on motorways, unfortunately

I followed the Streetperformance 2.2, and copied some of its modifications, i thought it was scrapped now

It used a very large hybrid turbo, a solid flywheel from a transit, and the artec FMIC, it was a euro3, David recommended retrofitting a euro 3 ECU/ setup to a euro4 2.2 TDCIs

When you open your air filter/ box up there are "webs" on the lid and on the bottom of the airbox, these can be removed/ smoothed out -

Was he stopped, then? As far as I know he is back in business ...
Ah, now, I know what you mean .... no, I have'nt done that ...

oww...i've forgotten something of my mod's: the SMF, of course....

I think I'm gonna contact David....

What I also consider= to cool the inlet-air even more BEFORE it goes into the intake manifold.
I tought about a second circuit of air coolant somewhere near (or into) the manifold....
Difficult, perhaps.

David was active on the UK scene a few years ago, the u-tube videos where his 2.2 was leaving st220s for "dead" are old too - i tried to contact him last year with no success - i heard his Mondeo was in bits/ scrapped too (it was written off in the Norshcliff?, ard rebuilt)

You could insulate your inlet manifold with exhaust heatwrap and use a waterspray on the outside of your intercooler to cool the charge better or use a water/ air intercooler (like a Focus RS mk1)

(any kind of additional intercooler/ device may restrict the gas flow/ cause a pressure drop- e.g.- a second intercooler in series)

if you use an EGR blanking plate in the normal place, and a second one on the EGR cooler, you can then remove the egr pipe, this will help keep the inlet cool and the exhaust hot, reducing the volume between the exhaust valves and turbine, helping the turbo spin up faster (a little)

Heatwrapping and/ or ceramic coating the exhaust manifold decat and downpipe will help reduce underbonnet temps and radiated heat into the compressor, (reducing heatsoak) as well as increasing scavenging and retaining heat- energy into the turbine (again helping the turbine/ turbo spool up quicker)

i have done or are in the process of doing these modifications on my car

You can try again, to contact him by cell, I think, e-mail is not his "thing" :D
Now, if I see what you have done already and /or planning to do.....is'nt it just easier to increase the turbo pressure by SW?
Removing the EGR pipe, I've thought about that, but everyone said I was crazy to do that. And, of course, At the annual inspection,in Belgium, the car will be rejected 100 %. That's why I want to change as much as possible via SW.
Sprinkle water on the intercooler has also crossed my mind, but, in my eyes it's a huge thing to do...just like the waterinjection into the intake manifold...
