#488183 Sound Deadening

Posted by IINexusII on 21 May 2015 - 01:29 PM

does this video pretty much sum up what needs to be done? silent coat + dodo mat on top and some sound foam in other areas

 




#488169 Quick Question!!

Posted by IINexusII on 21 May 2015 - 12:42 PM

The A1 is what ford recommend, i would use those up first and then you can get the A5 later

 

The A5 is approved for Ford WSS-M2C913-D which is a spec higher than what we need in our cars (WSS-M2C913-C)

noise vibration and harshness, this sound dampening is whats needed on every focus to give it that "german" feel

ive heard good things about silent coat http://www.amazon.co...rds=silent coat

 

i really want to do mine too as i find it too noisy on the motorways but there isnt a good guide anywhere for stripping out the floor on the focus. the rear would be easy enough to do though.

has it snapped? you should really change them in pairs, if one went then the other will be on its way soon

the A1 is fine and it is the same oil used in Ford's branded oil,

the Professional A5 costs the same and it is a higher spec, so why not :D i did notice the car runs abit quieter now too, but not too noticeable

#480879 2006 Focus 1.8Tdci Lower Intercooler Pipe Replacement.

its just as easy, the only difficult part would be taking off the clip on the intercooler side, best to take out the left headlight to get more room




#479098 Instant Fuel Usage

Posted by IINexusII on 23 April 2015 - 03:56 PM

Nothing wrong with it, its giving you "instant" mpg :)

 

when you take your foot off the gas off you get 99mpg because you are not using any fuel, when you accelerate you get 25mpg because your are using alot of fuel

mechanically they are the same, but asthetically they are different. mk2.5 has better looks, better instrument cluster, radio, red LED's inside, better centre console arrangement. most of the mods i have done are already there on the MK2.5 (spoiler, 17" alloys etc)




#477145 Should This Be Connected To Anything?

#476889 Help 1.8Tdci Egr Valve

Posted by IINexusII on 16 April 2015 - 12:32 PM

not really any power gains, but the pick up is smoother at low rev range, the car doesnt feel like it wants to stall out when moving off
