  1. Hey all, Focus mk3 2014 1L ecoboost, I'm looking for silicone hose from the turbo up to the hard pipe (Also needed) to the air filter please. I can't remember if its the Focus ST that has the same diameter/length of hoses that can be used in my 2014 car or is it the Fiesta ST? TIA
  2. I think they’re mk2 st alloys, they fit ok on a mk3?
  3. I’ve got completely stock mk3 1L ecoboost with stock alloy wheels (17s) i have been offered a set of mk3 st 18inch alloys got my stick ones. i do like them but don’t want to have clearance, turning issues/rubbing. Am I good to go with them or will I have issues? Cheers
  4. Hey all, cant seem to find any YouTube vids regarding installing a front mounted intercooler on a mk3 2014 1L ecoboost. Can it be done? Or does this active grille shutter stop it from being possible. Thinking about giving a slight remap to give it a better get up and go via bluefin and thought giving a bit cooler air will help the poor car cope. cheers all
  5. That’s the bit I’m on about. Oh crikey, think I’ll pass as I’m ocd when it comes to gaps and when I last had a certain cars bumper off the gaps weren’t right once put back on. Think I’ll go with plan a and just either wrap that silver strips or paint with it on the car. Cheers
  6. Hey all, Before I go in guns blazing and break something. How does the upper grille (pre-facelift) come out? Tried you tube and only find so far facelift model or mk2 videos showing removal. had a look through the Haynes and not seeing it either. So far that is. cheers all
  7. Yeah me too but can't see any dyno reports etc but found this test on a bmw
  8. Hey all, I'm looking at a set of 18inch ST Alloys, I'm wondering if they'll fit my mk3 2014 Focus Apparently they're 5x108 (8Jx18H2 - ET52.5) that means nothing to me
  9. Hey all, Has anyone got/tried or know someone that's used these chipping thingy ma bob? https://www.racechip.co.uk/shop/ford/focus-11-dyb-2010-to-2018/1-0-ecoboost-998ccm-125hp-92kw-200nm.html?gclid=CjwKCAjwyqTqBRAyEiwA8K_4O3Xoowd05JjgkeZ4BqFYSK05qylNHostB0xEhLquQqJXDhJ2oRiByxoCsRUQAvD_BwE Thinking either something like this (Around £119 upwards) or the Bluefin (Around £350) Cheers all
  10. Hey all, looking at having the Zetec S spoiler but wondered how it fits? Do I need to unscrew the existing one or does the Zetec get bonded on top of the one on my Ecoboost 2014? cheers all
  11. Yeah I thought I would have a fight on my hands but they were really good. Except not giving me a quick call to say “Hey, your engine is junk. So we’ve ordered one and it’s all on us” However, I’ll let them off since it’s a new one and they’re footing the bill. Did feel a bit bad when I had to give a deadline of next Friday. As I need car working for going back to work on the 22nd from being on holidays.
  12. It can be new engine time indeed. Just got word today from garage that I need a £3500 engine as it’s seized (suspect it seized while they were investigating the low pressure. It was turning the last time I saw it) thats bad news indeed, however since I’ve only had the car a little over 2 months, they are footing the complete bill. new crate ford engine should hopefully be over the road tomorrow at the ford garage. every cloud and silver lining etc.
  13. Hey all, where does the camshaft sensor hide on the 1l ecoboost 2014 focus?
