what is the hex flag?

That's what I'd like to know lol. Seems to be some urban myth that happens when you alter the parameters set by Ford, flags up this Hex flag that when the diagnostic tool is hooked up, lights up like a Christmas tree.

Even that's unproven that it does actually come up. I've got the equipment - anyone wanna let me look for a hex? :P

Depends what they offer for the 95DPF, if it's only 10bhp like the 90 I'll be better off at RS Tuning Leeds or AMD Essex!

I know what you mean if it wasnt for the fact the warranty is unaffected I would already be in leeds paying up

I'm unsure about the warranty side of things and the air induction kit.

The HEX flag is likely to be the check sum of the rom file in the ECU.

The data in the ECU will equal a specific sum, when parameters are altered the sum it equals changes from the original ford sum. This can then be safe to assume something has been altered.

This is my understanding of it and I maybe wrong.

Back on topic, I can't see an induction kit voiding the warranty, check with a Ford dealer?

Cone filters are just cone shaped filters to fit on the intake hose.

Induction kits normally are enclosed and have a box or tube which the filter is in. Sometimes also come with a cold air feed. Induction kits have the benefit of reducing the amount of hot air from an engine bay in through the filter.

I Checked my air filter last night n it has had it, was just wondering if it was worth popping a cone on, I am wanting a decent induction kit but cash Is tight, would it be worth popping a cone on instead of just replacing. The panel

Ive stuck a j1 induction kit on my mk7 petrol zetec s it's well worth the money even just for the sound it produces. And my mpg has improved only slightly though

Well i got the j1 anyways and fitted it 2 days ago. Sounds sweet and seems to give a bit extra accelaration in the higher revs (maybe just a placebo effect mind) but im not sure if acceleration has possibly dropped at the lower rev range. I dont know a bit more driving with it needs to be done. Mpg is still the same around 36.6. Pleased with it. Looks the dogs aswel.
