#499953 Green Cotton Performance Induction Filter Fitting Guide

Posted by Lenny on 02 July 2015 - 12:39 PM

Any of focus owners got any exhaust things going? If possible pictures and sound and estimated price

Ive got a Piper Performance 2.5" T304 Stainless Steel cat back duplex
Available for 400.00 GBP from Zen Sport
There also available from piper website however 50 GBP more expensive go figure :rolleyes:

Additional parts required are:
Two Focus ST exhaust brackets
Two rubber exhaust hangers.
Both available from ford for under 30 pounds

Image230_edit_1420579594366_zpsq2ap4otx.

The duplex is a pipe exiting on both sides of the car,
If fitting a duplex to your focus; your probably best off fitting an ST bumper or ZetecS rear diffuser to complete the look,

There are cheaper aftermarket exhaust systems on the market,
Any local exhaust repair garage can build your dreams for under 2-300
But piper are originally an aeroplane manufacturer they have used wind tunnel technology to perfect the split in the duplex exhaust,
T304 is aircraft grade stainless steel,
This means equal clouds of steam exit from both sides of the car on frosty mornings as saw in image below -1°C outside car engine running at 900RPM tick over idle.

Don't do that gear thingy, you'll only drop something down there like a coin or a chip and it'll be a barsteward to ever get out!

Reminds me of the Levin BZR i had a while back,
I removed centre console and found half a sausage from a garage Deli,
Was rock solid but strangely it didn't look over a day old lol
I also found a bullet in the boot compartment of that car and a Robert Miles CD in the glovebox along with an invitation to a wedding in Japan,

Tis mad what ya may find behind panels in the car.

So a little update, the car is all booked in for a few minor repairs and after a long hard look I have finally found the colour I wanted for the alloys! It took a while but I've got there in the end!
The car goes in to the garage the week before ford fair and fingers crossed all is okay with it when I get it back!
I won't tell you guys what the colour is I have chosen for the alloys just yet, as I know you guys like the waiting to find out game haha :).
Cheers,
Sam

Hummm ya Tease!

I believe the kit lids can be a bit tricky to fit Lenny so i hope your wife has a bit of patience! One review i read stated they removed the whole box so they could get the lid to sit properly. Hopefully yours will be a good easy fit. :)

My instructions will have the neighbours watching lol
"pull it out vicki"
"Push it in vicki"
"form a tight seal around it vicki"

The airbox is secured to the chassis via two M8 bolts,
Removing the box to get the lid on would mean these don't get fitted again, because the lid would be on,

I've done a guide on induction filter upgrade before though,
She can follow that:
http://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/

Well, i took a little detour on the way to work this morning to try the filter out and i was mightily impressed! The pick up was so much quicker and just felt like that was how the car should have been from the factory. The induction noise was a bit lacking even with the bung removed which was disappointing as i am still a bit of a boy racer but i am really happy with the way the car drives now. All in all £54 well spent! :)

Sounds great!
Looking forward to having mine fitted too,

You have no idea how much I would love to have discs on the back instead of the drums. Looking at the information about it it seems quite costly though!

Im in the same boat as yourself mate,
Ive got rear drums too and would like discs,
Downside of the 18" rims i suppose, shows them up more.


#499798 Major Clean Up!!

Posted by Lenny on 01 July 2015 - 08:44 PM

Thank you both!! Thats great
This is after a vacuum...
Loads better

Looks good,
Now's a good time to run in any cables such as power for a sub, rca's for an amp or cable for rear footwell lighting,
While you have the car stripped.

#499698 Bought A New Head Unit

Posted by Lenny on 01 July 2015 - 02:15 PM

Looks very sunken into the dash, has it clipped into the cage properly?

+1
Take out headunit and readjust the bracket on either side of the headunit,
Put them further back on both sides,
This will result in the headunit coming out more when fitted,

Apart from that; Is Nice, Hi 5! :)

#499197 Radio Swap

Posted by Lenny on 29 June 2015 - 04:24 PM

Hi Guys,
 
Aside appearance (trust me that wont be a problem...)
 
Does this look like a fairly straight swap?
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2ed76771fa
 
I think I probably need a ford quadlock to ISO adapter? or would the one provided suffice?

You would need as ISO conversion cable and most likely a dash section replacement aswell,
DynamicSounds are a london based supplier of complete aftermarket headunit install kits,
Contain everything needed including aerial adaptor,

Personally id be concerned at the price of the headunit it may be such a hot deal the car would combust,
Why are you swapping for this one?
