Dpf, Egr, Remap

09 December 2013 - 07:30 PM

Right so after all the DPF hype I've decided i do not really want to remove it. HOWEVER i know they are an issue. i will be going in for a remap anytime soon, but i want to keep the DPF in place, if they remap do you think that, if and when, there is an issue with it they can just remove and delete. Or does it not work that way after a remap has already been done….

 

Secondly i blanked the EGR with great success and it feels more responsive especially in 4th (more torque lower down) When i go for a remap is it worth deleting it from the ECU, - they said they can do this at no extra charge… or will it be a mistake in the future ie. when selling on, or more stringent MOTs. Can the EGR software be loaded back on at all? will it need to be?

 

Lastly, will the remap affect the DPF at all if still in place? i know Lenny is quite a knowledgable guy and i believe has remapped with DPF still in place…. but did you have the EGR software deleted!?...


Wheel Nut Covers

13 November 2013 - 10:56 AM

Hi, had new tyres put on yesterday and the guy came in with the wheel nut cover that had been shredded pretty much. He said they usually last 3 years and that it's a terrible design. Anyway anyone know the best thing to do as the nut covers are apparently 8 each from ford! Do people get plastic ones and then get a smaller wrench to take them off with? Or replace with chrome metal ones so it will fit the standard socket wrench in the boot? Just to let you know they are the 17 inch zetec s alloy wheel nuts (which I'm using with my st wheels)

Anyone Know The Curb Weight Of The Focus Mk2.5?
