#459743 Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Posted by L666JER on 28 February 2015 - 09:21 PM

If I swap the ECU from my old car to the new car along with the clocks and Key transponder ring should everything be okay?

 

I looked into this for my car when changing the locks, but didn't do it.

 

That's the theory yes, although the ecu must be from a car of the same engine obviously.

Can't be nice after all the hard work that has gone into it. Don't know what I'd do if it happened to one of mine.

 

You don't hang around getting the replacement sorted :D

 

Hope it works out for you :)




#455807 Mk3 Fiesta Engine Swaps??

Posted by L666JER on 17 February 2015 - 11:31 PM

Just sell the mk3 to someone who will appreciate it for a 1.1 and buy a car that's already fast. Probably work out cheaper than swapping an ST lump in (done properly). And will certainly be much less hassle and better to live with.

Here's his build thread.

#453589 Sneaky Rip Off Halfrauds..

Posted by L666JER on 11 February 2015 - 11:31 AM

Depends what you buy really, some things are very reasonable when bought using the discount card. Things like spray paints and filler etc. aren't expensive (and probably better quality than the internet rubbish).

 

If you get some of the cleaning products when they are on offer they can be quite cheap with the card as well. (Ie. the armor-all dashboard wipes are sometimes on a 3for2), and there always seems to be some turtle wax shampoo on offer, making just as good as internet with no waiting.

 

Also, when I got my headunit (Sony MEX-6000DB) I found it the cheapest place to buy from - and that was before the discount card was considered.

 

(BTW I DO NOT work for Halfords, just don't think they're all that bad)  :lol:




#452740 Mk4 Fiesta Different Ecu's?...

Posted by L666JER on 08 February 2015 - 05:15 PM

You can get a lock set off ebay for about £30, this will come with keys without transponders and then somewhere like Timpsons can supply, cut and code a new key to the new locks and copy the transponder from the old ones for £40.

 

I fitted the locks myself in about 1 hour.

As speaker cable for cars goes, you can't beat this, it's incredibly thick.

Only downside is due to thickness, it's very difficult to run it through the car.

That's pretty much how I've got my frequency settings. Are you impressed with the difference the power capacitor has made? I was with mine.

#442124 Pros And Cons Of Exhaust Trim

Posted by L666JER on 05 January 2015 - 05:36 PM

Yes it is :D
I was going to get the techs at ford to fit it for me before I collect the car as well as do some other little mods for me ;)


Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

 

Ah I gave up with the clamp things and screwed mine into the exhaust - not going anywhere  :D

Posted by L666JER on 05 January 2015 - 04:23 PM

Is it one of those clamp/bolt on things?

 

If so make sure you get a VERY good fit when you install it or it will be rattling around everywhere

 

(I know from experience)  :lol:

Have you still got the old Sony headunit Kieran?

 

Could do with it for one of my dad's XR3i's.




#441451 Mk5 Fiesta 1.3 - Looks A Bit Like A Zetec S And Custom Audio

Posted by L666JER on 03 January 2015 - 10:36 AM

For me the false floor was just to hide all of the wiring (of which there is a lot) as I wanted the amps to have as much air around them as possible and like you I needed something decent to screw down into rather than through the boot floor. I quite like to see everything laid out, but for you I can see why it was a problem.

 

The carpet I used was a spare boot carpet for the car that I had in the loft, so I cut it out to fit and then used some spray adhesive (I too was surprised with how strong it was).

 

The quick released connector for the speakers is just a plastic connector with male/female banana plugs within it. (link below)

Unfortunatly I cant get a double din unit in there (not quite big enough). I did have a single din pioneer in my other car but got rid of it after two months as I was so unhappy with the sound quality, so I'm a bit put of by them. ideally I would like another Sony. Perhaps this one.....http://www.halfords....-dab-radio#tab3 I really need one with three rca outputs (front, rear and sub) and this one offers that.

 

I was the same as you at first, just get a sub in there, but then found myself thinking "If I do this next bit then it will be so much better"  :)
