#354325 The Little Ecoboost...

Posted by Chris_pickford94 on 16 April 2014 - 08:07 PM

might not be so easy to de-tango but well worth it... as for the mist jets, the non heated ones, which i got, were only £7.32

That's not as expensive as I expected from ford tbh
Ford continue to surprise me!

#352261 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6Tdci Engine

Posted by Chris_pickford94 on 09 April 2014 - 03:33 PM

Thanks for the guide Lenny

Fitted the blanking plate today, took me about an hour and a half, being slow making sure I do It properly but the longest part was trying to get the blanking plate to slot in correctly

One thing I will point out to anyone else is that the screws are long on the egr valve, but the actual threads aren't as long as you'd hope, I undid the top one too much and and gasket fell down
If this happens, get a wire coat hanger, bend it to make a small hook, and you should be able too hook it in the screw hole and get it back into place

Can't honestly say I noticed a massive amount of difference
Maybe slightly less lag low down, but if it extends the engine life then for around £3 it's gotta be worth it

Loctite do a sort of superglue which is very strong but I can imagine it being quite pricey compared to mitre fast
The only other sort I could recommend are 2 part epoxy glues

Mitre fast should be plenty strong enough tho, I've used it in work on metal parts of washing machines and it holds no problem

A strong glue should do the job
As long as your wheels aren't on and off that often, it should hold onto the wheel nut easily

In work I use mitre fast (or mitre mate) a lot and it seems to stick pretty much anything I've tried instantly and is pretty strong and durable
