well had my focus mk2 at the tuners on monday. Had dpf removed -cut hole into container and removed all insides and welded back up, then had new fuel filter fitted(previous p0087 fault)then had EGR turned off via mapping and then had remap to 139bhp. They even fixed a pipe that was blowing off under pressure towards airflow meter?

 

All i can say is wow. no turbo lag at all in 1 or 2 then after that it flies through the gears. car is a lot smoother to drive and the sound of turbo is much nicer!!

 

will let you know how it gets on over next few weeks.

 

after having 2 turbos, injector seals recut and seated twice- hopefully should be no further problems.

 

paid £470 but £50 was fuel filter and fitting -so £420 for physcial removal, and remap :P

sounding good, especially when you got the EGR removal as well - its not often they do that as well!

 

Did they remove the EGR valve unit itself? if not, if you remove this yourself, you can save yourself so much weight (replacing with two blanking plates! and shebam, your car will go like something off a shovel.

they did have few problems..when flashing over files-some fords can lose their ID -so they had to reflash that back over but besides that went fairly well.

I will be having the exaxt same thing done in the next few months so am intrigued as to how it goes long term! Sounds great for you up to now though! :)

Is it REALLY noticable going from a standard setup?

seriously it is very noticeable!

there used to be slight lag in 1st and 2nd gear- thats gone completely!

it goes up through the gears really quickly now

 

am hoping that there are no other lights to do with dpf come on in future...will let you all know if any further problems

all good so far! fuel economy doesnt seem any different..still good

 

Car is so much better to drive, very quick and overtaking is now a breeze. doesnt smoke at all which i thought would happen.

 

Have noticed that car takes longer to warm up -that is due to having the EGR deleted from software- this is common side effect.

 

Now going to keep on top with oil changes- every 6 thousand i think with fully synthetic- no longer need that low ash !Removed!!

 

So all good in my eyes

Thats great to hear!! I'm so jealous mate! :D

Just waiting for my funds to increase then i'm getting the same done.

My management light keeps coming on (DPF related). I keep clearing the code but the interval between me clearing it and it returning is getting shorter and shorter by the day so I hope I can get it done before it completely clogs and puts me into limp mode!!

I'm gonna fit a 2.5" stainless steel exhaust too just to free up some more power but dont know where to start with that! LOL

Your dpf chamber is already 2.5" on inlet and exit,
The connected flexi down pipe is also 2.5"
So you just need from flexi to tip 2.5" pipe
You going duplex or single exit ?

Oh right, so straightforward then.

Think i'm gonna stick with single Len. Just need to find a decent fitter in manchester if anyone has any suggestions for future reference....
