Zs 1.0 Sound With Cold Air Induction Kit ?

31 August 2014 - 07:59 AM

I'd like to improve the sound on my ZS 1.0 - primarily the sound I hear inside the cabin, I care less about the outside sound.


So I'm figuring the most efficient/cheap way is to get a cold air induction kit.


Does anyone have a before/after sound comparison from inside the cabin ?


Also can you recommend a kit ?

Has Anyone Tried The Red/black Edition Zs ?

22 August 2014 - 07:07 PM

I'm considering "upgrading" my standard ZS to the red/black edition - primarily for the changed gear ratios, which should help overtake times (which is were I feel the standard ZS is a bit sluggish)



I already tried an ST, and whilst it's very fun, it's not that practical for me due to being unable to fit a tow bar (or whatever it's called, it's the thing you put your trailer on :D  - English isn't my primary language, so bear with me)


So with that out the window (can't live without my trailer, unfortunately) I'm looking to the red/black for a speed upgrade.


I should probably also mention that remapping the car is also illegal in Denmark, so that's out as well  :angry:



To make a long story short: Did anyone try one yet, and can you elaborate on how it performs ? (Mainly interested in the overtake acceleration)

Should I Get Plastic Underneath The Engine On The Ecoboost ?

22 August 2014 - 07:01 PM

This may sound a bit odd, but I've noticed the Diesel mk7.5 come with a large amount of plastic underneath the engine (between the road and the engine bay)


I figure this is to keep dirt, water and eventually snow outside of the engine bay, so why isn't there any on the ZS ? If you open the bonnet you can see straight through down to the asphalt.



So I'm considering getting this plastic fitted, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any knowledge about this ? (i.e. is it a bad idea)

Is There Any Difference To The Seats In The St ?

02 August 2014 - 10:15 AM

This might seem like an odd question, but I'm (like many) considering upgrading my ZS to an ST, and thus I went to try one out.


The one I tried was an ST-1, which doesn't have leather seats.


My wife didn't like the seats much, in fact her lower back got sore after just a few miles - she said the seats were too narrow around the hip (and no she's not a large woman)



So I'm wondering if the leather seats in the ST-2 is exactly the same size as the "normal" ones ?

How Do I Know If Overboost Is Working?

31 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

I've noticed two times by now, than when I drop my Fiesta into 3rd and floor it, it pulls harder than I'm used to.


What I'm wondering is, if it's because overboost normally isn't applied, and these two times it has actually worked.


Is there any way for me to tell if it's actually working properly ? (Aside from getting it on a dyno and have it read out)


I'm thinking about getting an OBD, it should be able to tell me the boost pressure right ?
