#388119 Hello

Posted by Lenny on 20 July 2014 - 11:26 PM

Hello everyone intro im dave
 
own a fiesta mk7 1.6 tdci econetic, 
 
am here to hopefully learn new things about my ford, and hopefully meet some nice fellow owners,
 
 

hi David
Welcome to the forum,
I recommend you blank your EGR valve to prolong the life of your turbo,
And fit a free'er flowing induction filter to improve your mpg.

#388093 Possible Dash Lighting Mod...

Posted by Lenny on 20 July 2014 - 10:00 PM

Nice,
I bought a set of "Prism red led" in halfords, they come in a pack of four,
I fitted them to my old dash vents and stuck em on ebay to give me the edge on selling as there were so many listings selling the same vents,
i had upgrade mine to titanium spec with the chrome inserts

The prism leds were quite bright,
If you got some clear perspex and cut out a halo using a dremil tool,
Drill a hole to fit the led, this will spread even light through out the ring providing the soft equal glow,

#387301 High Temp Spray Paint.

Posted by Lenny on 18 July 2014 - 03:06 PM

Very little difference, only notice on the odd very tight corner but not enough for u to think it keeps the car on the road by itself.
Thanks, it does look alot better already, just a few touches here n there before i call it done lol.

still it looks better than the standard strut bar brackets, id fit one aswell if i had the spare cash.


#387244 18 Inch Alloys On Standard Focus Mk 2.5 Help

Posted by Lenny on 18 July 2014 - 12:39 PM

I reckon best person to ask is Lenny as I think he put 18" St Snowflake alloys on Eibach lowered springs. He has a steering rack limiter and camber bolts in the rear if I am not mistaken on a Mk2.5 1.6 TDCI.

Thanks Hassen,  

Yh I was told that I would need a steering rack limiter for a non ford rim and any larger tyres

Genuine facelift Focus ST snow flake are 18x8 as saw below:

Image2665_zpsb0d2f00a.jpg

Image2667_zps75cc54dc.jpg

you wont need the steering limiter kit for the wheels unless you fit lowering springs which brings the arch lower around the wheel,
If fitting 18x7.5 you wouldn't need the steering limiter kit lowered or standard stance,

Also if lowering regardless of wheel size you will require eibach adjustable rear camber bolts cost between 20-30 pounds and prevent any negative camber,

IMG_20130117_123845.jpg

Negative camber is when the face of the wheel begins to face towards the sky causing excessive wear on the inside of the tyre.

Eibach-Camber_zps495c13c9.jpg

In any case though 18" rims are not recommended to be fitted on the 1.4 petrol focus if anyone drives one of those, bigger rims contribute to "unsprung mass"
Unsprung mass is:
Any heavy part fitted outside of the chassis i.e bigger rims,
The additional weight effects the acceleration of the vehicle due to turning a bigger mass,
However the lower tyre profile aswell as wider contact greatly improves the lateral grip and handling of the vehicle.
Overall if you have a 1.8 or 2.0TDCi and want 18's go for it,
However if you have a stock 1.6TDCi 90PS then prepare to lose a bit of power after fitting 18's but a remap will sort things out.

Hope this info helps yourself and future readers via Google.

Or have I got the wrong ford website??]
 
cheers

Cheers Lenny, does look good on yours......just hoping it can be adapted easily to fit a standard bumper. :-)
Sent from under the bonnet

To be honest it wouldnt adapt well to the bumper without the Zs lip,
However have you saw this: http://m.ebay.co.uk/...3999?nav=SEARCH

oh ok i've seen that dash camera or black box like some people call them but don't think i want to do that, but to be honest i haven't seen any cheaper than Tesco bank i guess its only for my post code.
Also was wondering should i get membership on this site as it will give me some discounts for my first year
 
best regards

there are a few advantages to forum membership however i would get a quote from the forum insurer first,
If they are over 10% more expensive than tesco for you,
Then there is no point to join if your not going with Adrian flux,
My first insurance was 2400.00euro but it comes down every year seems we all have to suffer an entry fee
