The 1.4TDCi, 1.6TDCi and 2.0TDCi engines are Citröen/Peugeot engines a quote joint venture,
Hi everyone I'm looking for some advice, am currently driving a 08 Focus 1.8 zetec climate but looking to change to a diesel Focus, only problem is deciding which one, a 1.8tdci or 2.0tdci engine & the Titanium model or the Zetec S, trying to weigh up the pro's & con's of different spec models & reliability of the engines, if anyone has any experience with these models your input would be appreciated... Many thanks!
They also have a DPF
Your much better off with a 1.8TDCi because it's a Ford engine,
Blank the EGR valve and the turbo will last longer, they don't have a brittle turbo but egr is Best blanked in any diesel engine.
The 1.8TDCi doesn't have a DPF neither and can be remapped to give similar power to the 2.0TDCi stock performance win/win
You can easily add the zetec s bits to the titanium if you wanted. But not as easy the other way around
Go for the Titanium spec as it's got all the toys,
I built my own ZetecS lowering springs and body kit fit straight on
