In Topic: Can Any One Help

I test drove a 55 plate that done exact same as you've said. I thought the cars must be that slow unti l drove the 1 I have now. Possibly not looked after or driven corectly? Cars made in the last 15 years or so, actually need to be driven quite hard from time to time, allot people drive diesels just about ticking over, which over say 100'000 is no good. Plus being run like that will make it slower than 1 that has been driven harder more often.

When i bought a fiesta st brand new, I asked ford on how to run it in, they said ''you dont, best thing to do is drive it like you stole it if you want it to perform like it should''.

Fitted my own blanker that came today, the 1 that was in already was about 1mm thick, my 1 is 3mm. Looks allot better, the other 1 looked like a bit of metal found on the side lol

Thanks for the advice. I'll change the panel filter, is due 1 by look of it. I think i'll leave other mods for now. I bought the car as a run around for a year or 2, but was shocked how good it was so decided to add some easy power with the bluefin. I'll probably end up doing the 1's you suggested bit by bit though, as i found with my fiesta st, once you start tuning its hard to stop lol

also the part you put the block in, didnt have bolts it had screws.

Bluefin is on, first 20 miles were normal apart from you could tell turbo kicked in sooner. After about 25 miles it started to pull allot more, only could see a puff of smoke every time i booted it in passenger door mirror. mpg went up from 47 to 53 as well. Pretty pleased i got it now, was a bit worried, my mate put bluefin on his fiesta st, kept cutting out while he was going along.

Got no complaints with it on the mondeo now though, easier to drive, faster, little added smoke and better mpg. Maybe if i was nit picking im sure it sounds louder stationary now, more diesel clatter, would that be normal?

To me it looks like its been blanked already, but with something thinner than 2mm steel, i stuck a tooth brush up bottom of the valve, no soot just the surface is like oil. Installing bluefin in a mo now lol
