#512976 Advice Needed About Car Seat

Posted by Lenny on 17 August 2015 - 10:51 AM

Yes I know that a kid needs a seat untill a certain age and weight what I was looking for was the age that they can be put into a forward facing seat ha-ha
And Lenny good choice on the car seat I have that one and am using it always reclined aswell she's loving facing forward aswell so I might just ignore the milfs forum that is also why I asked here cause more of a chance of getting a sane answer here

Thanks for recommendation mate,
My lad wants to drive :lol:


#512824 Ping Pong Boost, Opinions Welcome

Posted by Lenny on 16 August 2015 - 07:11 PM

How strange.. :/
Sent via carrier pigeon using Ford OC


has it just started doing it for no reason or since any particular part fitted, do you know what the mapped boost limits are  set to at all engine rpm bands 
does it do it at a particular road speed./engine rpm speed
was the remap designed for less back pressure from exhaust mods?

This problem has been resolved since fitting the K&N57s induction kit
The boost doesnt drop off on full throttle in 4th and 5th :)

#512589 Chrome Tip Exhaust For Focus Mk2.5

Posted by Lenny on 15 August 2015 - 07:53 PM

Hi guys
Looking for a chrome tip on my exhaust for my Mk2.5 focus.
Have seen some floating around on Amazon but not sure what to trust.
Has anyone tried any on their car?

Hi Joe,
There is a Genuine Ford one that sticks out twin tips,
Its 150 quid,
However for maximum street credit you would be better going to some place like souhans.ie and having a choice of genuine chrome tip fitted last alot longer and costs alot less

What age do you leave your baby in a infant car seat or a rear facing car seat so when do switch them to a front facing seat

Carry cott doesnt go by age but weight,
Its up to 13kg
But my lad is now 11kg at 8 months and too long for it, hes sitting up holding the handle lol
Big debates on the milf forums about keeping kids rear facing up to 2yrs old because of head on accidents etc.

I say down with that sort of thing Ted, only thing i like rear facing is me missus :lol:
First item on next months shopping list is a maxicosi axiss front facing seat that unlocks to rotate sideways
Easier to get em in and out,
Also reclines.

#512459 Oil Catch Can Install - 1.6 Tdci

Posted by Lenny on 15 August 2015 - 10:53 AM

Its not so bad down there, makes draining it with oil changes nice and simple, Don't forget the washers, the hole is about an inch or so wide

Need two for each bolt i suppose, one on either side,
Last thing i want when fitting is to have the car stripped then find im missing somthing as id have to drive to DIY store to get it, :rolleyes:

Laughed my head off watching it but according to them, it did sound good. I do trust them when it comes to music as it is their daily jobs after all. Plus it looks ghetto as hell, which is what makes it even cooler :P

The sub in the tyre will be most popular with the Dub scene and "RAT look" enthusiasts
Torn up boot carpet revealing the sub fitted inside the tyre,

Good to see MCM coming back having had a few months "on the run" i read an article from Moog recently explaining that they had to stop filming in there driveways because every time they tried to film; the whole street turned in to a Gymkhana with enthusiasts strutting there stuff.

There garage then got broken into, all tools cars and bike stolen, trashed the place.
They then resorted to filming in carparks as we saw in one episode.
Followed by performing the gramps build in other specialists garages

There now making a come back at a non disclosed warehouse location with new cars,
I think its appalling that the show has been tarnished by extreme enthusiasts and vandals don't people have respect for an individuals expression of art and creativity particularly those whom share a passion for the modified scene.

Anyway i agree with regards there opinion but I've noticed when they trial tested the sub in the vehicle the track they were playing had alot of highs for a sub to produce those would be quite alien.
But I'm sure there obliged to always tell the truth as they have a whole forum of followers that would turn in to a Mob if they got things wrong lol

I remember back in 2004 there was a fake nitrous purge kit available on the market which connected to the spare tyre,
Link: http://www.demon-twe...alike-purge-kit
It had mist type jets connected to a small tank of water and used the spare tyre for pressure.

I was going to suggest that modification would now be eliminated by fitting a sub in the tyre but i see now there's a Co2 kit that can be topped up in any paintball supply shop lol
Check it out:

Lmao its very Fast&Furious if my motor was petrol id be tempted for a laugh at the traffic lights but would be best fitted to a little Daewoo Matiz or for kA to look as though its running Nitrous and yes it does fit in a Honda

#512329 Eve, It's Time For A Face Lift (mk2 Focus Zetec Climate 2.0)

Posted by Lenny on 14 August 2015 - 08:38 PM

Hopefully I won't get into too much trouble confusing my faster and louder buttons!

:lol: in fairness there both great options to have during a number of activities.

The faster and slower buttons only work; after you have pressed "set"

Then if cruising and say you have to brake
This cancels cruise control but if you press "Res"
This will resume the speed you were at prior to the braking.

Posted by Lenny on 14 August 2015 - 08:16 PM

That looks awesome mate,
I have factory fitted cruise control but id almost fit 3 spoke wheel and this instead,
I was looking at it before but couldnt see the plus & minus buttons which adjust cruise speed without touching pedals,
I can see now that these buttons are fitted on the rear of the stalk,
Very tidy indeed.

Dunno if that would do! Says avh x2700bt in title but not in the description

Its just a relay mate,
Wil work on all headunits which require a handbrake feed,
If your headunit has carplay then it needs to be connected to handbrake because carplay only works when handbrake is off,
Aswell as some menus change with handbrake off.

#512091 1.6 Tdci. Dpf Deleted From Map. What To Do With The Dpf Itself

Posted by Lenny on 14 August 2015 - 08:24 AM

My land rover came standard without a cat or dpf ...
It's running around 145 HP now & will happily fill the road with soot when you put your foot down.
It's veichles that are like this we should be concerned about. Not modern diesels with gutted Dpf's that run clean regardless.
My mini is even worse 1.0 petrol 15 mpg max still passes emissions somehow lol

Sounds like the mini could use a fuel cut defence mechanisim or launch control with a spark plug in the exhaust lol

Check out the setup on this volvo

#512049 1.6 Tdci. Dpf Deleted From Map. What To Do With The Dpf Itself

Posted by Lenny on 13 August 2015 - 11:20 PM

You do realise that the DPF has no bearing on the emissions? They check for nitrous oxides, carbon dioxide and probably carbon monoxide. The DPF is there to trap the particulates which are the cancer-causing particles small enough to get into the bloodstream. The emissions test doesn't detect those. The particulate problem is the main reason I won't be buying another diesel. Particulates have been identified as a serious public health risk so if you consider yourself a responsible member of society you shouldn't be gutting your DPF.

I accept your point,
I'm also under no obligation to respond to your input
However society is made of of many categories just the same as vehicles and many elements

I found myself with a vehicle that would self destruct in due course costing me over one thousand pounds on replacement parts had i not taken measures to prevent the future outcome.

I have kids growing up in today's society,
Do i care about there quality of life?
Of course i do,

That's why I've gutted my dpf and blanked the egr valve followed by upgrading the induction filter,
So as the car wont self destruct on a journey to school leaving them stranded on the road as another element of society continues to solely look after itself and carry's on without offering assistance.

And ill be able to send them to collage rather than paying ford almost 2k in repair bills when the dpf cakes up and blows the turbo,
the egr valve contaminates the oil enough that it blocks the turbo oil feed and blows the turbo.

Much like many individuals in society i found myself in a situation of future discomfort and have invested time and money in achieving a better outcome

I didn't design it,
I paid top money for it,
If they sold it to me properly and honestly then i would never have bought it.
Its designed to go wrong.
Its now become my problem due to purchasing there design,
I'm stuck with it and this is how I've dealt with it as efficiently as possible with proven quality results its still got a cat fitted doesnt smoke and returns 72mpg
My next car wont be a diesel neither but for now it is and this is how I've dealt with the problem the manufacturer has put upon society.

Fitting a sub inside your spare wheel replacing the steel rim with a sub and using the tyre as a sub enclosure PMSL!! :lol:

Mighty Car Mods episode gave you the idea?

Yeah :lol:
I had the custom oil catch tank on order from NB styling, then i saw the MightyCarMods episode shortly after ordering the kit,
The scouring pad made perfect sense as it increases the amount of contact surfaces within th3 chamber much like a catalyst,
It doesn't reduce flow at all though.
I've tried blowing through it and its fine :lol:
