In Topic: Factory Head Unit To Sony 6 Cd Head Unit Swap

Just out of curiosity, how much is the Sony head unit these days? I've not been able to check prices due to my connection being bad.

I'm quite new to the Focus scene and I'm looking to put (hopefully) a DAB + Sat Nav model in my 55 plate Ghia, where have you guys got them from?

Also, there are speaker blanks in the doors, is the wiring normally there for additional speakers?

Now Ive read that injectors leak ---> oil burns --> carbon build up and muck in breather pipe ---> expensive turbo failure which nobody wants to fix.


Hi d0gMa,


I've recently been through the turbo failure, the TSB from Ford supposedly says to replace the engine.

I had the garage replace the turbo then check the engine for damage. Admittedly it has cost me almost £1k on a 55 plate Ghia which ticked over 50k the day after I picked it up.

Thank you for the replies.


It's in with a garage and they started looking at it today, they said there'd be no warrenty on the work because Ford themselves say when a turbo goes you should replace the engine. As an employee of the group that made the engine to start with I'm not best pleased and would have avoided that engine if I'd known who it was made by because of the issues that it has.


Haven't been made aware of prices as of yet but I will keep you lot updated with what's gone wrong.

I'm quite hoping that it was low oil that caused it and not something more sinister.

Quick question for you guys,

When a turbo does go, roughly how much would it cost to replace (assuming no other damage to the engine)
