42120 for the front T3's and 42121 for the rears. Add "S" to the end of the part number for the slotted rotor.

Anyone know the part number for front and rear DBA rotors for a 2010 LV? Is it 42121 or 42120? Looking at T3 4000 series all round and possibly EBC red stuff pads.

If you don't want it too loud, a canister style intake is not too over the top, especially if it sucks via the stock snorkel inlet. It does limit full power a little, but is a lot better than the stock box.

Understand that Robbo.  Just don't want sucky sucky noise. I have added an enclosed pod (with CIA from fog light) on the side of the stock airbox, so my only restriction is the plenum where the bellmouth is, not the restrictive slot from the stock filter. I might just have to live with that.

Until yesterday, I have had my ECU on a home made bracket, hanging in front of the end of the engine, for years. I had a flap covering direct spay of water through the radiator, but that was the only protection. Now it's in the RS ECU cover which directs air through it from the radiator area.

James, there is no point adding a second spacer to the factory airbox. The box itself is a restriction between fiter and ECU. Just let go of this idea to keep the box, once you do, it opens up options as well as performance.
I'd suggest this is why your DS tunes are still running ok for you.

Saw that myself - and selling with no prior history Huh??
July 04, 2015, 09:46:41 AM
Just wondering what purpose the ECU cover serves? Is it to keep water from contacts, or the ECU itself? Looking to add another ECU spacer and cover won't fit any more

If bozfromoz is selling parts here and claiming to be from Perth, why does his gumtree ad say he's in Fairhaven Vic Huh?
Buyer beware !!!

Will do Rocker, i am going to look into the possibility of acquiring another fob key and whether it can be transfered.
July 02, 2015, 03:27:20 PM
Call the dealer you want to go to do programing and ask if part # are matching.
July 02, 2015, 01:43:22 PM
can anyone confirm whether its ok to buy a key fob for my XR5 LV from a Focus LV? And is it then just a matter of having the key reprogrammed? Would be good to know if anyones done it before!

I notice formaz had a red xr5 on ebay with an after market exhaust. I inquired as soon as i noticed it. Sold already.

Bang for buck mongoose r hard to beat.
July 01, 2015, 05:03:26 PM

All depends on personal taste mate. Have a look through the forum and YouTube for videos and comments on the various different brands.
July 01, 2015, 03:15:44 PM
can anyone please tell me what the best type of exhaust is to put in that is decent priced? I own a LV model, thanks.

I was never a huge fan of how the last one sounded but dang it looks like a nice place to sit inside the thing.. Especially compared to my old aRSe..

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi

Hi All,

A quick cheers and beers to everyone who has dropped in, dropped out and bounced around the FordXR5Turbo.com community over the past 2,738 days of existence - we recently ticked over 9001 members so I felt it was a solid arbritary number to celebrate.  Thumbsup

Thumbsup 9001 Members!  Thumbsup

We may be working with a 7.5 year old child who occassionally has issues with authority, punctuality and humour but I'm sure we'd all agree they've been a welcome addition to our lifes.

Thanks again for being part of such a great community I never expected would become what it has. Much love.  Cool

Cheers,
Miyagi
