Also what benefit would i gain from blanking the egr valve. thanks for your replies.

No prob mate,
Im a long term member i enjoy the forum and creating guides see my profile page by clicking on my avatar picture 30 guides to date,

The egr valve recirculates up to 20% of exhaust gases back in to the induction chamber where it is sucked in to the cumbustion chamber,
This brings excess carbon in to your engine excessive oil contamination leeding to carbon build up in the oil creating restriction of oil to the turbo,

By blanking the egr you prevent waste gas Recirculation,
The engine will only suck in clean fresh air,
The flow of exhaust gases increases by up to 20% across the rev range
As result your turbo spool time is also reduced
Thus making your car more efficient on fuel,
Oil stays cleaner with a reduction in contamination
Your dpf (if fitted) will be cleaner due to increased exhaust flow

See more positive feedback on my guide:

My focus is a 1.6TDCi DV6 Euro 6 emissions
Ive blanked egr valve, gutted dpf chamber, remapped fom 90-125bhp
Text book turbo failure on the 1.6TDCi is around 80-100,000 miles
Im now at 150,000 on my stock turbo and its mapped yo!!
Thanks to EGR blanking saving me a turbo

I actually thought about using spades but then that involves cutting the wires. I used scotchloks for my 12v sockets, wrapped in electrical tape as well just to make sure. I'll be doing this with the lights too.
Recaros would be lovely, id love some for my car, I find the seats a bit uncomfortable at times. As if they don't offer support down the sides.
I'll tackle the lights this weekend and post a few pics of my steps so anyone interested in doing the same has a reference at least.

Looking forward to seeing these fitted mate,

Just in case you're interested in ever fitting the oval radio, this is a link to the guide I posted after doing the upgrade myself.
Looks far better than the standard Mk2 6000CD radio.

Excellent PDF guide mate,
Im not sure about the cost of part: 1547964
But ive got those parts removed from my 2010 if its cheaper to send me 7 pounds via PayPal to cover shipping from Ireland to the Uk then ill ship them via tracked mail

#428541 Happy Birthday Vickiw!!

Posted by Lenny on 15 November 2014 - 07:15 AM

I'm sure Vicki is very happy you posted up her age.
You should have said 21 for bonus points.

:lol: i had her when she was that age too :)
Funniest part was yesterday in the card shop, i brought the kids with me to pick a card and gift,
Got in to the card shop and they start screaming at me "mammys 33 dad get a card that says 33"
I spotted one with 60 on it but refrained temptation
Funny when you think about it because the kids are 5 & 7 all there birthday cards come with an age printed on them and a badge :lol: they instantly assumed all birthday cards had names attached.

My youngest also says "i hope the baby in mammys tummy is a Chinese baby"
I asked why
She replied "because then we would get to eat Chinese food all the time and i love Chinese food "

In maternity ward on Thursday waiting to be seen and she says " dad does your phone have a camera for taking selfies?"
I was like WTF your 5
"mams phone has a camera on the front and mam says its for taking selfies"

And finally
"when mammy has the baby, will the hospital tell you if its a boy or a girl so we know what name to call it and c9lour clothes to buy"

Here they are in forest last week watching a family of ducks in the stream
Should have brought a shot gun wouldn't have had to go Chinese lol


#428482 Happy Birthday Vickiw!!

Posted by Lenny on 14 November 2014 - 09:03 PM

Happy birthday!  What did you get her Lenny? :P

To be honest?

A card that says "happy anniversary " instead of "happy birthday "

And three battery powerd led wax candles that flicker,
The flame shaped card is suspended between two magnets and dances around like a real flame,
Funniest part was when she almost tried to blow them out lmao
Shes forever lighting candles and i fear the kids would be messing with them and get hurt or burn the house down,
These simulate really well


Baby was/is due today aswell but with all the flooding thats going on there's still no sign of vickis waters Breaking

#428447 Ideas To Replace 6000 Cd Stereo In Mondeo

Posted by Lenny on 14 November 2014 - 07:24 PM

First post here and looking to pick brains about car stereos.  I have a 2007 Mondeo lx with the large 6000cd unit.  I know nothing about car stereos but would I be correct in thinking that this is called a 'double din' unit?
I'm wondering what is out there to replace it in the sub £200 range. I've no idea what the technology is these days or what connectors are at the back of the 6000cd.
Any ideas?   a satnav might be nice, and I don't mind an ebay cheapo if it works. Something that could hold loads of mp3s would be good too
Ta in advance

Welcome to the forum James,
I highly recommend checking out dynamicsounds.co.uk for best value for money

Yes your 6000CD
Rapidly remove it and launch in to space :)

You need a double din conversion kit from dynamic sounds to prepare your cables, aerial, steering stalk control and dash to accept a double din aftermarket headunit.

These kits are model specific,
I think this is the one for you:
http://www.dynamicso... double din kit

I recommend a pioneer headunit perhaps a Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD
All customisable colour illumination to match your existing interior colour

And pick up a cheap reverse camera on eBay for around 10 pounds

#427829 Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Posted by Lenny on 12 November 2014 - 05:37 PM

For sale, JL audio 10W3V2 300w RMS Subwoofer. I bought it used a few weeks ago & have tested it working but decided to go for the less powerful model.
Unlike the newer subwoofers, this one was made in the USA and is a quality piece. There are a few age related marks here & there but nothing that affects the operation of the sub.
Looking for £55 + delivery or buyer can collect

Very Nice sub,
Id just like to help promote this sale by informing:
This particular sub is the biggest sized 10" sub that will fut snugly inside the depth of the 10" custom sub enclosure that's available on eBay for the mk2 and mk2.5 focus,


There's also a grill available for this model which clips in to the sub resulting in no need to drill holes see link:
Also a good matching amp see link:
