Dont Neglect Your Service Interval 1.6 Tdci

22 September 2013 - 08:17 AM

I know most here have gas engines, but I just came by this PDF and Im a bit shocked.
If you have a fiesta/focus with this engine you would want to read this.

Mk7 1.6Tdci (90Bhp) Remap - Through Odb?

19 September 2013 - 10:40 AM

Have tried to get my fiesta remapped, but the tuner had problem doing this over the odb port. We tried several tools without any success.

 

Have any of you guys remapped your tdci? If so, how was is it done? Through odb, or did they need to take the ECU out of the car?


Egr Blocking Gone Wrong?

08 September 2013 - 04:34 PM

I followed Lennys guide http://www.fordowner...-16tdci-engine/

The 1.6 tdci 90bhp in the fiesta doesnt look the same, but i managed to loosen the two long bolts that holds the egr house to the block.

Sliding the blocking plate in the gap between the block and egr hous was a real PITA, as you cant see the gap, only feel it. And there is not enough room for the blocking plate to slide paralell into the gap, you must wedge it into place.

Well, job was done, took it for a spin. Wow what a difference, to the WORSE!!!
The engine now sounds like its working much harder, and it felts like Im driving with 5adults in the car, its allot slower than it user to be.

I opened it up again, and placed my hand around the egr whilst the engine was running, couldnt feel any laks, my boost gauge still shows 30psi at full throttle, so no boost leaks.

Any ideas?

Rca Converter, Use Front Or Rear Speaker Output

17 June 2013 - 10:00 AM

Im installing a Infinity Basslink, wich handles highlevel speaker input.
I have located the 4 speaker pairs behind the headunit.

I dont have rear speakers, so the output to the rear will be not be feeding speakers. If i use the front output, the same signal will be feeding speakers aswell.

So far it seems that using the rear is the best. BUT, when i connected a small 4,5" speaker i had to the rear output, it was a much higher tone (more treble) than the sound i got when i connected it to the front outputs.
Does the headunit not supply full range signal to both rear and front?
In my case i dont need a full range, but only the low end (bellow 100hz).

Mk8 Steering Wheel Into A Mk7

03 April 2013 - 12:31 PM

My oem steeringwheel is so thin and simple. Looks so cheap.

 

Then I saw this picture of the Mk8 zetec, and knew that I need to get one.

 

 

Question is, will this fit? I guess it will physically, but what about wiring, and airbags? Maybe the airbag/inserts from my Mk7 steeringwheel will fit, so ill end up with a hybrid steeringwheel?

 

Any ideas?
