#383786 Focus Engine Cover

Posted by Lenny on 08 July 2014 - 08:42 PM

So I could possibly get a mk2 1.6 petrol cover?
It's ok I don't trust garages for my services etc. Only go as a last resort.
To be honest I just presumed I would have one. I shall not take that risk again. Lol.

heres what it looks like:
You may also require fitting bolts but finding the cover will tell.

sorry bro i feel your pain mate,
These covers were mainly on the Mk2 models so you may get one from there,
When you do get it,
remove it before going for a service as garages can forget to put them back on,
Ispecially if you have it lookin tidy as you will.

Sorry for laughing, just thought you would have looked at your engine before this,

I received some paint from lenny to tart up my engine cover some time back.
I finally got round to getting it done only to realise my car hasn't got an engine cover.
Does anyone know if I can get one? Any links? It's a focus mk2.5 1.6 petrol.

no need for formalities just bry will do haha

it drives like a petrol after it mate,
If you can, get a 2.5" exhaust done from flexi flange back to the tip,
I say flexi flange because its already 2.5" from engine to flexi.

Just need a straight 2.5" pipe with two manderal bends put in it,
A diesel performance back box and choice of tip,
Could even fut a 90 degree elbow tip to keep it looking completly stock.


#383020 Focus Exhausts

Planning on getting the twin exhaust aswell but just the back box. I have a 1.6 Petrol Auto so the mpg sucks as it is. Will getting this Mod lower it even more?
Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

if you were to look in to fitting a 200cell cat aswell this would increase flow through the system,
After you fit say a 2" pipe from cat back
It is then the cat that limits performance,
So a free'er flowing cat will increase performance along with a 2" system or 2.25"

Then the next mod would be induction to fit a performance filter allowing a greater mass of air in to the combustion.

All of this will increase performance but on a N/A (naturally aspirated non turbo) it will all ad up to a 10bhp increase and reduce fuel econemy,
However on a turbo vehicle the smoother flow of exhaust gasses and increase in induction air helps the turbo so spool up (spin creating compression)
And can help mpg as boost comes on earlier than standard meaning you dont puah as hard for the same result.

The diameter of the exhaust pipe also helps,
For a N/A petrol a 1.75-2.25" pipe is sufficent
For a turb9 petrol a 2.0-2.5" pipe is sufficent,
For a turbo diesel a 2.5"-3.0" pipe is sifficent,

Any bigger on these can actually reduce performance by resulting in no back pressure atall.
Too much has a negative effect aswell as not enough,
So the 1ltr Saxo with the 5" titanium tip back box is actually slower than stock.

Lenny bud...now why would i tell you to FOC.off..lol
He already has had a test drive of mine,and all thought he loves mine,he prefers to keep his car as is,he's old school ...lol.

if he aint broke now he will be when it cakes up with carbon creating excessive back pressure leading to cavitation of the turbo and carbon build up in the oil via the EGR that bill will be a chuckle, wouldnt want to have a mouth full of tea at the time anyways.
DPF, new Turbo, oil feed kit and oil sump refurb.
Anyways each to there own devices top respect from local mechanics

Thanks for the reply Stoney871 ...... the Eloys tank is defo filled to max ...... and i have told him not to drive the car till the counter has been reset... he was just looking as to how much it will cost to rest,as he Disabled and money is tight...the garage charged him £150 to supply and fill the tank,and as proof of filling they give him the receipt and bottles plus the spare fluid.... they thought their software was able to rest it,but it doesn't.....  

tell me to foc off if ya want to but:
Since youve had yours gutted and remapped,
Would you not let your relative take yours for a test drive and perhaps save himself future top ups?
As said though none of my business :)
