Fiesta Mk7 '60 Tdci 95 Bhp Exhaust

Good choice mate,

How much did the system set you back?

Your grumble will get Bette if you blank your egr,

This will also increase mpg by 0.3 and reduce turbo lag on pick up.

Dpf internal removal will help pick up on top end acceleration aswell as zero lag,

I'm not sure on the cost for the fiesta but if your dpf is ceramic then you don't need to remap because it doesn't connect to the car for fluids.

Mine was a 2010 focus and had a ceramic dpf, no remap required for its removal,

Because its just like a catylist in the system no connecting pipes.

I don't know but is there meant to be that much smoke? I thought the dpf stopped that.

Do you have a photo showing it from the back off the car too?

it may be smoky for a while becausethe dpf filter was blowing through a 1.5" pipe before and now has a higher pressure passing through it due to the iincreased diameter of pipe.

The smoke your seeing is most likely the carbon build up clearing from the dpf,

I reckon it will clear off in a couple of weeks.

Its difficult to keep tips clean on a diesel,

But a steam cleaner does a great job of cleaning the tips once a month,

For starters though

Id wax them with autosol to seal them then steam clean at a later date.

Autosol comes in a tube like toothpaste wax on with a cloth,

Let it dry then buff off with a microfibre cloth for best results.

Hi Lenny. Thanks for the advice, will have to find out about the DPF. The system set me back £270 + VAT so £324. Definitely feels nippier and doesn't drone.

Any idea on price of EGR blank?

Also, yes have a picture but not sure how to upload it on here. Will try and pm you it.

Click on my profile aviator picture,

You will see a list of 28 guides on my profile page,

Click on the egr blanking guide.

I have created a guide blanking EGR on 1.6TDCi I've also linked a supplier of stainless steel blanking plates,

I highly recommend only using stainless steel blanking plate because other types blow through.

Overall dpf blanking will cost you around 3.00 pounds an 40 minutes of your time on a dry day.

Good price on the exhaust mate mine cost 450 excluding mounts and fitting.

Here's a direct link to egr blanking 1.6TDCi

http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/42915-guide-fitting-egr-blanking-plate-16tdci-engine/

The same egr is in the 1.6TDCi fiesta as in the focus,

The guide is relatively the same on your fiesta as it is on the focus but please read the posts under the guide for feedback from fellow fiesta owners who have followed the guide and blanked there egr,

They have added some info.

No worries, bit of a drive for you! What you looking for? Catback?

I don't mind a drive for somewhere that will do a good job. And I'm not sure. I'm not after performance or sound, just the looks really. Probably a back box or even just different tail pipes I suppose that would be cheaper

I have the same problem... I am from Newcastle and looking for an exhaust system for a 1.6tdci but not sure on any decent places :(

I'd definitely recommend Top Gear. I also know a few other people who would! But they're definitely worth it. Yes tailpipes would look good but if you were going to drive all that way you'd be better off going back box or catback mate. Their back boxes start at £125+VAT depending on pipe etc then +£100 for cat back.

Yeah I think if I was to drive down there I would get a backbox, could get any garage to change the tailpipes I suppose. I don't really know anything about exhausts though, what would changing the backbox do? Would it just change the sound a little?

Is yours a diesel? Changing the back box won't make a massive change in sound at all, as it will still be the 1 3/4" pipe, if you weren't going to go catback, personally, i'd go for just a straight through with tailpipes on. One of the lads started mine on with no exhaust at all (after cat/dpf) and it wasn't much louder than it is now as The main silencer is in DPF.

It is a diesel yeah, same engine as yours. I Don't want to be spending that much, don't want it to affect the mot or anything and don't want it to be much louder than standard. Would you still recommend the straight through pipes then?
