#523048 Reversing Camera On Front Not Rear

Posted by Lenny on 15 September 2015 - 09:56 AM

Hi guys I got a rear reversing camera coming which I am going to fit I was just wondering if anyone had fitted a camera to the front bumper which can be switched on and off either by switch or another way and linked to the same monitor that the rear cameras linked to but I don't want it to be on while driving any ideas or has anyone done it ( OR DO YOU THINK I COUKD LINK BOTH CAMERAS TO THE SAME MONITOR AT WHICH POINT THE FRONT CAMERA WILL STAY ON THE MONITOR (just turn monitor off) AND THEN SOON AS ITS IN REVERSE THE PICTURE CHANGES TO THE REAR ( turn monitor on)

Hi Chris, 
if the monitor is a single channel input then this would be possible via a small RCA 2-way splitter, 
ill source the link to where i bought mine on ebay very light weight and discreet I use it to change between PlayStation and TV Tuner in the car.
would require manually switching of video source. 
if the monitor is capable of accepting two video source inputs then you wouldn't need an RCA splitter just change the channels on the monitor. 

getting the monitor to display front view by default then automatically revert to reverse camera view when reverse gear is activated is really only possible if fitting both cameras to to a head unit. 

this way the front camera can be installed as an AUX input 
and the rear camera installed as just that; a rear camera. 

this method will allow you to listen to a cd or radio etc. all usual functions while displaying the front auxiliary view. 
then reverting to rear camera when reverse gear is activated. 

the front camera sensor feed must be connected to an ignition live feed in the engine bay fuse box via a mini piggy back fuse adapter and 10amp fuse to allow constant power while engine is live.

an alternative option would be to install a dual camera DVR dash cam system such as the kit ive installed in the guide here:

not only would it display but it also records.

£750 is cheap - way too cheap - I wonder why ?

DPF alone is worth 800
I'm now hoping it has one 😀

#522753 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6tdci Engine

Posted by Lenny on 14 September 2015 - 04:32 PM

Hey Lenny
New plan re EGR hahahha decided not to use the blanking plate !!!
Getting the boooger written out at ECU :D as recommended by the terra clean garage here in Cardiff...
so now have blanking plates for both 1.6 tdci and 1.8 if anyone wants one send me a message and ill send it to you FOC

I'd still blank it to be sure mate,
Only takes a bump in to road to knock the deleted egr in to open position which is worse than ever.
Best to blank it for sure.

I'm not a fan of delete as it can cause a hick up in the idle tick over but each to there own

Had AutoGlass out today to inject resin in to the chip, 
This is it repaired looks like a fly splatter on windscreen but atleast it won't crack.

AutoGlass will replace heated windscreen for 125 euro cash on top of insurance windscreen protection I'll go for that next time. 



#522484 Migrant Crisis

Posted by Lenny on 13 September 2015 - 09:50 PM

As a Tax payer in a country which can't house it's own homeless irish national family's which the private banking system has put out on the streets.
Yet the government recieves bailouts from Germany to aid the banking crisis
I have to make a stand and say I'm personally outraged to hear Ireland is accepting 4,000 immigrant's through legal passage.

Yet we are an island which has zero natural resources to generate sustainable income for our own people.

Simply tax the working man even further while he struggles to provide for his own family.

Yes Ireland emigrated to other countries in times of desperation.
but Ireland returned to build itself a home.
it is the duty of our and future generation's to protect that investment and security which our ancestors devoted there lives to create.

These people have no homes to return to
They are emigrating with no intention of return.

Ireland would be better sending funds as it can afford to a more sustainable country which is capable of housing them.

We still have 2500 Romanian refugees held in a rat infested camp near Dublin, Government won't let them work yet tax payer covers there every expense and they are free to have as many children as they like with free schooling and leave to stay in the country until the last child is 18 year's old.

#522230 Info On A Couple Of Mods

Posted by Lenny on 13 September 2015 - 06:41 PM

hey guys, just wondering if any one has any information, price range and level of difficulty to install global locking and cruise control in my 57 plate focus.

By gobal locking do you mean the Windows opening and closing via fob?

Cruise control is easy done all focus have sensors built in as standard you can fit controls and active using a modified elm327 yourself just like Dan has done

Posted by Lenny on 13 September 2015 - 03:23 PM

What could be the reason for not all DV6 TED4 engines to have a dpf ?
I was under the impression from factual reports they all had them ?
Is yours U.K. spec & not a foreigner Ian ?

if the 1.6TDCi DV6 was a 90PS model (88bhp)
Then it didn't require a DPF

The difference between the 88bhp and 110bhp models were
1. BOSCH injector size 90cc and 110cc
2. GT1544V turbo and Mitsubishi CP7 TD025 turbo

The 88bhp model can be remapped up to 125bhp but that's the most injectors can handle.

The Mitsubishi turbo is fixed size non variable vain capable of up to 130bhp

The Garrett 1544V is a variable vain turbo which fans act like a small turbo but expands internally under centrifugal force as speed increases catching more gasses resulting in bigger turbo overall idea is to eliminate excess boost aswell as reduced lag time.

The 88bhp model can be remapped via OBD port, the 110 must remove ECU to remap.

It Is possible to fit the Garrett turbo and 110 injectors to the 90ps model for performance up to 150bhp
can be taken higher by fitting a Focus ST stage 1 intercooler (straight swap)
K&N57s induction kit
2.5" exhaust
And Hybrid turbo (straight swap)
