If the DPF is ceramic then you can leave it for a while because there's no sensors in the exhaust system to detect pressures

But if it's not a ceramic then it's likely to go in to limp mode immediately

Thanks mate,
My hand is covering a picture of a one off V6 Escort Cosworth which I snapped at a Ford show in wexford,
The magazine implys that it's mine or my brothers lol
I just linked Connects2 to my photo account and told them to use what they feel best as I was on crutches at the time of interview and unable to do a specific photo shoot for the magazine.

My youngest daughter is delighted as well if you look closely she's sitting in front passengers seat of the main photo lol
as said these pictures were in my photo account and chosen by C2
I mean my front splitter and ZS lip is gone and has tape visible on the bumper not exactly show stopping
but they chose picture and it's quite an achievement to get entered in to a magazine
it's fantastic to see that there is a radar out there picking up on aspiring enthusiasts across the board.

There's also higher insurance and tax :(

insurance would only be high for first year,
All depends on the end results you want to achieve I suppose.
The 1.6 petrol has almost no tuning potential so if modifying then it would be body and interior, it wouldn't accept 18's too well neither due to less torque if fitting them ofcourse.
The 1.8TDCi would take all those mods as well as benefits from EGR blanking, ECU remap, 2.5" exhaust, induction filter, intercooler relocation.

In the long run; there's around two years of modification on the 1.6 petrol then it's at its limit
or
there's around five years of modification on the 1.8TDCi before it's at its limit.

If it was me I'd spend first years modification money on the insurance then start modification as insurance drops,
My insurance in 2010 was 2456.47euro
second year was 1200.57euro third year was 895.52euro fourth year was 700.52 euro and this year was 550.22 euro all mods declared as well as missus named driver

Finally managed to get the exhaust and get it fitted! Ignore the blue stuff inside it, it's the exhaust paste and gonna get rid of it this weekend!!
It sets the car off great! Only disappointed bit is it makes no sound difference at all :(
Do you recon it will once I've got the dpf gutted?
My cousin is gonna gut it for me, he has all the welding equipment and that at work!

looks great,
Will get louder with dpf gutted,
wear a really good mask and tyvek suit with gloves when gutting the dpf because it's contents is much the same as asbestos the mesh filter is quite harmful to lungs.

#516643 You Had One Job Experience.

Posted by Lenny on 27 August 2015 - 08:45 PM

Ok so it's my first week back at work since May following a hip fracture,

Today I got paid,
So this morning I decided that after work today I'd take a 40 minute drive to a particular fast food take away chain which I prefer quite well.

Since I'm back driving two weeks now having not been able to since May I was looking forward to the trip and well the particular food they do.

So after work I went to Gym then on to the particular fast food chain branch.

I went in and I'm the only customer in the place, nobody else

I ordered a taco chip, 5oz Burger and large coke.
Then paid 11.10 euro

5 minutes later
She says burger and taco chip and hands me the bag.

So I took the bag and went to the car,
Half way through eating the burger i realise;
She forgot to give me the coke.

So I go back in and she's trying to give this guy a large coke with his order but he's refusing to accept it.
I politly introduced myself as the individual whom ordered the coke.
👨"Hello how are ya"

She then points her finger at me saying you took this Gentleman's order you owe this Gentleman money.

I responded "hold on luv, I took a bag containing a taco chip and a burger which you yes you yourself handed to me I was then gone, just like this Gentleman's burger it's gone, and i didnt "Take it" you handed it to me....  i only came back for the coke I paid for"

She says; I'm not giving you the coke because you took his order,

I said ok so;
His order was
1oz burger
taco chip

My order was
5oz burger
taco chip
large coke

The guys getting five times bigger burger than he initially paid for and your offering him my coke as well, 
Can I ask; how much was his order because i paid you 11.10 which is more than you earn in one hour yet you couldn't do the job for five effin minutes.

Having said that the guy hands me the coke and I left quietly.

I was all Samuel L Jackson in pulp fiction "tasty burger"

So I took the plunge and ordered Tin of zinc primer & Canary yellow paint. Before I put the Mintex discs and pads off the old car onto the new (current discs are about dead) I'm going to sand all the surface rust off them & coat with zinc primer. I'm then going to install my braided brake hoses and Clean up + paint the calipers too!
Once I've bought the st rear subframe and installed that I'll be doing the rear calipers yellow too :)

sounds great Kieran,
Looking forward to some pictures of the front calipers painted, will look awesome with the alloys and blue body.
