  1. I've only just seen racechips. I'm very interested in their throttle tuning kit. Doesn't over stretch the engine while increasing throttle response, which is something I feel my car lacks. Overall power is fine, I just want to get it quicker rather than having to wait a while. Also as it's not increasing the performance of the car, I should increase my insurance when declared.
  2. Tickets booked the day they came out at our local Cineworld. I'm with you the same as I love how they've taken something from the comments and committed to transforming that over years into one of the biggest stories in cinema history. I've even managed to get the wife hyped about it. We've recently been reminding ourselves of what's been by having a rerun of all the previous films. I have to say though. I don't know where they are going to go beyond phase 3 into phase 4... I just can't see another 20 films leading up to a spectacular showdown. Bring on endgame! What ever it takes.
  3. Simple really, is it a 5 speed gearbox or a 6 speed? 100 is a 5 speed 125 is a 6 speed
  4. What's about this? Just put your own sim in it? Sent from my SM-J330FN using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry mate. I did read this but didn't have anything informative to contribute. I would say that having a phone plugged in all the time would drain the battery. I know GPS trackers use very little where as a phones charge rate even on standby would be quiet high. Other option is a cheap Chinese one? Sent from my SM-J330FN using Tapatalk
  6. What would people say is the preventative measure on this then? Replace pump every 20k? What's the cost of a new pump these days? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone heard of this as a common problem with the 1.0 litre EcoBoost?
  8. Hi all, I'm hoping to start a thread to put everyone's mind at ease over the 1.0 EcoBoost engines. I wanted to list the known problems and the along with that, list the preventative actions as well as remedial if problems exist. So here goes: Engine failure Caused by- Head cracking - caused by engine overheating. Engine overheating - caused by loss of coolant Loss of coolant - caused by: --Degas hose split --Coolant tank micro cracks --Water pump seal leaking So prevent the latter to stop failed engines? Preventative action: Replace degas hoses for mk3.5 spec? Replace coolant tank when starting to discolour? Replace coolant tank cap when tank changed? What other know engine issues are there for these engines? Thanks. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  10. What model is yours? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  12. £80 for a cell battery... you've got to be joking?
  13. I'd look for an aftermarket android head unit for the car. Most now days have both Bluetooth and the ability to have parking sensors attached (and reverse camera/dab/dtv). Only downside would be you'd need to get it all fitted. Cost all in including fitting I'd say be about £500 For a decent set up.
  14. So I put a full tank of Tesco Momentum 99 in my 1.0 125 focus yesterday and did a 20 mile round trip straight after. I have to say, I did notice a difference. Smother idling Better MPG Better in the higher gears as lower speeds It also costs me only £46 to fill up the tank. Anyone else had any experience with performance fuels?

  15. Hi all, Just looking to see if people can advise where their clutch bite points are and how responsive their throttle is. Info - Clutch: mines rather high, like very near the top, but I've heard this is very common with Ford's? Throttle response: I have to press down about an inch on the throttle before I notice any kinds of response? I get a little out of it, but it's almost no speed increase until I got a certain depth of the press? Thanks all. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
