    as a mondeo tdci owner im sure ill have injector issues at some point.... My question is, whats recoding/reprogramming the injectors? I didnt realise that injectors needed coding to the engine or anything. Can you explain this for me?

    The Zetec S

    Im not a fan of the facelifted rear lights to be honest. Nor the normal 5 spoke wheels. Once lowered and wheels refurbed i think it will look loads better. Stereo? I like the Nav unit ive got in it. No doubt the equiv later unit would be very expensive. lol Good idea about the ST brakes...

    Clicking Sound...?

    Wont it have coil packs rather than leads? And if im thinking the right noise (a noise similar to what i had in my pug) im thinking the big end might be up creek.

    What affects crash-test rating?

    Roll-cage, seats and harness is about the only mods that an end user can do to increase crash safety as far as im aware.

    What affects crash-test rating?

    It depends on many many factors. Over here we have an organisation called Euro Ncap who crash cars and rate their performance. Im guessing in America you will have something similar. A good test result is more than a sum of its airbags

    Fitting Lowering Springs. How hard?

    Coil spring compressors. Ive got those. I wondered if there was any model specific difficulties in removing the strut from the hub assembly to remove the spring. Or can i just jack the car up, wind in the spring, undo the top strut mountings and effectively lower the assembly down to make room...

    Little Break, Little Change...

    The green line is the torque the red the bhp. Youre right in saying keep the car between 1800 and 3000. Its where all its torque is therefore most of its acceleration. But to be honest it pulls really well right upto its "red-line"

    Fuel impulse buys

    Usually nothing. Putting upto £70 of fuel in the car usually puts me in a bad mood and cant bear to spend anymore money.

    Fitting Lowering Springs. How hard?

    for the meantime will probably just do springs. Only want a 20-30mm drop so it shouldnt stress the dampers too much.

    Fitting Lowering Springs. How hard?

    As the title suggests really. I want to lower the Mondy 30mm and im toying with trying it myself or paying my local garage. Now ive fitted new spring and shocks to the rear of mk3 golfs before but im thinking springs and shocks on the front of a car will be more difficult. am i right? any guides?

    Most innovative new car

    Whats that special about it though? Sure its got almost 1000bhp but so what? Put enough turbo's, intercoolers and other cooling onto a big enough engine and you'll easily get that. Its not even the fastest car in the world anymore. Dont get me wrong, I do like the Veyron, I just dont think its...

    Formula Yawn

    To a degree, open wheel racing is always going to be like this. Especially at the speeds seen in F1. The cars just cant get too close to each other otherwise its game over. Something like touring cars is always going to be more exciting because they can rub and bump without too much worry of...

    Fiat 2.0l Turbo 16v engine into a Punto 1.8 HGT

    180bhp in a punto would still be pretty handy. And being the only one in his country would be satifying to own i think.
