    004560 Rail pressure plausibility delivery controlled

    My guess is a faulty fuel pressure sensor or blocked fuel filter has the EGR valve bolt come loose, are there any fuel leaks across the fuel rail? They are the obvious first thing to check. Did you actually uprate the fuel pump? The N57 fuel pump flows better, but does it flow enough to cope...

    Smooth Airbox

    Yup me too, the turbo will compress more lovely oxygen if the intake air is colder. In reality when you are running a turbo I doubt the difference between hot and cool intake make much power difference, compared to say the difference you get in summer/winter.

    Is there any benefit getting a "performance" panel filter?

    I think it's generally accepted that a performance filter will not filter as well, but will flow better. In my experience a K&N cotton offer pretty good filter to flow ratios compared to other performance filters, lots of flow and reasonable filtering. The other options of mesh filters flow...

    What is your cars name

    Have you given your current car a name? What is it? What about your past cars? I've got Bessie at the moment, I've had Denise, Shaz and Kodi in the past though.

    What is a 9 second car

    Adding power and cutting weight is usually the answer here, there is a lot of excess weight in most factory cars. Swapping a bonnet for a carbon fibre one will save quite a bit, remove the rear seats and spare wheel as well and you'll only have to add 500bhp or so.

    Mondeo MK3 Duratec 2,5 V6

    2.3 to 2.5 swaps are common but I've not heard of a 3.0 cam in a 2.5, the heads and blocks are very similar, its the crank and pistons IIRC that make the capacity difference. If I find something definate out I'll pop a reply in here so you can others doing this can find it. Are you doing a...

    Supercharger Pressure Release Valve Location

    Personally I use a partially atmospheric BOV, some ECUs don't like the drop in pressure and missing air. I guess you've mounted after the MAF, which could be a problem, you don't want all that air registering and fuel being pushed in when most of that air is going to be vented away.
