    New Car

    Ive just bought a 2008 tdci 140 ghia mondeo after having my zetec tdci for 5 years. I think im happy with power (got k&n in too) :) but what can i do to make more oomph. Top end only feels same as zetec and that was 115 model. Dont get me wrong its quickish but i want a bit more witout a chip or remap. Any suggestions guys? Cheers
  4. Starting my mondeo mk 3 tdci up to day i noticed a rattle! after getting out and looking under car i noticed that all the metal lining under the exhaust ( heat shield? ) had come away. it is severly hanging off and looks like it was held by bolts or rivets? any ideas if it can be held back on and do i really need it! thinking off getting ripped off but i cant get under the car anyway! is it dangerous if i leave it or even dangerous if i remove it? please help! it is this stuff in pic i am on about half way down the exhuast! :(

    mondeo de-cat

    does anyone know the rules on these? someone told me that you will still pass an mot with these as diesels are tested differently to petrol ? surely you need a cat?
