#382319 Any Idea What This Is?

Posted by Lenny on 04 July 2014 - 10:01 PM

Thanks for the help so far guys! Would this be the trick (I get confused between the oldish fiesta, they all seem to look super similar facelift or not. Mine is a P-reg, that's an S reg...)

Looks like a perfect match to me,

I'll probably just leave it in that case.
Inside of the bonnet has some cover thing on the inside, looks like it's some kinda material but it's filthy so I won't touch! Gonna be getting rid if it in a couple of months anyway.
Haha a boy racer in this would be hilarious, I reckon it has about 40bhp left of that! Slowest boy racer in the world!

They will be starting to investigate as of Monday night (when the officer is in for his shift) so he can watch the video etc, so I just need to drop my local station a visit over the weekend with a DVD.
 

Need For Speed is just out on DVD this week should be a good one,
and dont forget the popcorn, Ow and some Nachos with Extra Cheese!! Keep em sweet,

I'm a complete novice but as Lenny said, take your time and give it ago, you'll be pleasantly surprised with yourself after doing it, all id add to the guide is move the fuel filter back and take the bracket off for extra room if you need it. You can build up your confidence doing that before going for the valve too

+1 atleast you guys had the guide lmao i spent weeks on google images looking at EGR valves trying to find it on the engine lol
I was a complete novice aswell.

Done, went for an hour long high speed run and all is good, it feels like it has shed loads more available power at higher speeds too, much smoother. doesn't sound quite as noisy at any point, I think I can see why some folk think they are getting lower mpg, ive not had the car that long and haven't got used to it so I instantly noticed I needed less right foot to get a move on anywhere.
 
So far, definitely worth it, next up, the DPF removal!

nice one :)
Ensure thats DPF internal removal,
Then make sure you dont put petrol in the tank because it will drive just like one after dpf removal performance is great.

Sweet,
Now i wanna see a picture of you standing at the checkout in halfords on Sunday,
Whip out the card from your wallet,
Turn to the guy behind you in the queue who's purchasing Holts Radiator Weld for his 2013 Insignia, along with a trolley full of expensive engine restoration products for the P.O.S Vauxhall.

Show him your card and say "So eh,,, What you think of this huh?" while you smile and masticate heavily on some potent chewing gum, and set your ring tone to shaggy.
Purchasing only a Magic Tree air freshener for 1.50 :lol:

Posted by Lenny on 03 July 2014 - 02:48 PM

Does it matter which way it goes in? looking at the valve the top part is the shortest so I assumed that was the right way to put it in, but there is apart sticking out the side still..., please excuse my ignorance,  this is pretty much the first time I've got my hands dirty with an engine!

id say:
Despite the large size and shape of the EGR valve blanking plate and flange: the actual main hole in question is smaller in the centre,
So i reckon fitted in either direction will still provide "Total Eclipse" on the line.

2. The person selling this car has covered up the rear number plate BUT has left the front one clear!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

perhaps it was a cut and shut,
The rear doner section was stolen but the front end is legit :lol:
