  1. Hi was wondering if anybody out there could shed some light for me? Ive got a 1.6(100 bhp) zetec climate and was going to put a milltek 4-2-1 manifold and put a new exhaust system on it aswell but i keep getting conflicting reports! Some places are saying that there manifold and exhaust systems will not fit the new focus and some are saying that the engine ive got is the same as the older model and that the manifold and systems they have will fit no problem.Ford dealers are a waste of space as no one there seems to know anything!! If anybody knows the right answer i would be most grateful or i
  2. Hi ive got a 05 zetec climate 1.6(100bhp) and im looking at putting a milltek 4-2-1 manifold on but cant seam to find an exhaust system to go with it!! Ive spoken to pumaspeed who have said they are 99% certain that the milltek manifold will fit but they have no exhaust systems listed for this engine. Had a look on the net and the only one ive found up to now is the bastuk system from european parts. does anybody know if these are any good at all? For a full system its going to be about £450 is this a fair price for a decent system? what type of sound and gains would i expect from this system?
  3. Ive got the 1.6(100 bhp) with 18k on the clock and the best ive had out of it is 40 mpg. That was on a long run and driving steady. On average im getting is 32 mpg. I am going to look into having a k+n panel filter and bluefin put on it to see if this improves preformance and consumption?? However i did have a mk1.5 silver before my new zetec climate and after the alterations i made to that i got more power and better consumption!! so got to be worth a go.
  4. Hi I do understand what warickshire lad was saying but i got the car for such a gud price under £7000 that is was too gud to turn down!!! The cheapest 2.0 i found was £10,500. Im sure it wont cost me £3,500 to try and get a bit more driveability out of this engine surely?? Anyway wheres the fun in a bog standard car!
  5. thnx will def put in a k+n panel filter.does anybody know if theres any exhausts out there for this type of engine?? dont know if it makes that much diffrence but its def not the ti-vct engine that i have.its the older 100 bhp engine.will bluefin hav a chip for this engine?? did read that sumone managed to get 130 bhp after doing these mods but that was to the older mk1.5.does anybody think i cud get the same results from mine???
