Help 1.6 TDCI MK3 Focus

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


sorry if this has been done already, I've searched high and low on youtube and the internet and can't seem to find what I am looking for. I own a 2011 MK3 Focus 1.6 TDCI which I would like to modify. Firstly I am looking to add a boost gauge. Never added one before however so I am a complete novice I am afraid. Has anyone done this already to their car? and can you give me any advice on how to do it? 


I am aware that Diesels are different to petrols and I need to take mine form the intercooler pipe between the turbo and intercooler (is that right?)

Has anyone done any other modifications to their Mk3 diesel?

Boost gauges are standard on the ST and RS and many people on here have added boost gauges to the TDCI. I believe most tap into the EGR line or you can get a line from the manifold. The diesels run up to around 30psi so make sure the gauge goes that high.
