Imagine a Kuga you cannot keep up to with a stage 3 XR5.
February 08, 2016, 07:41:37 AM
Lol, I still toy with the idea of getting a Kuga and put it in that Tongue
February 07, 2016, 10:59:14 PM
Yeah I know but if Robbo is willing to donate an RS engine I'd happily install it Tongue
February 07, 2016, 10:37:00 PM
I think Robbo was just dreaming of a good combo, Josh.....

Nah it's a manual. I have one week to mod it before I move away so I'm probably just going to do the intake and change the muffler.

AWD auto C30? I'd actually like that as a daily driver.
February 07, 2016, 08:32:03 PM
I like the C30, it's a quirky car and I would enjoy converting a bunch of XR5 mods into one, including RS engine and custom tuning. Make it a real beast.

My little sister just bought a C30. We now have 3 5 pots in the drive way Smiley

Hi John,
I checked the ARB bushes and re lubed them, so I doubt if it's that

Could be the LH strut boot plastic has come away from the body.  Needs to be clamped down and perhaps you should check whether the caster bushes are dry.  If so remove and lubricate.
February 06, 2016, 08:02:48 PM
Could be a dry bush or even a loose anti roll bar drop link.

Hi everyone, still a little unsure how I post such questions, is there another place on this site? Anyway, I'm getting some squeaking in my rear left strut when it goes over bumps. It's a 2010 XR5 Focus and it just ran out of manuf warranty (perhaps it's not covered anyway?). Has anyone had any i

Set aside about 5 grand and go crazy...
That would kick you off for a fun start.
February 06, 2016, 02:42:16 PM
Hahah - that's secretly what I want Wink
February 06, 2016, 08:56:55 AM
Lol, wrong place then. We'll just encourage it Tongue
February 05, 2016, 06:08:08 PM
Managed to tame my mod bug for 6 months to save for a house... But it's coming back, send help!
February 05, 2016, 04:40:07 PM
Maybe even that J1 airbox is comparable to X4
February 04, 2016, 04:00:47 PM
I'll wait and see how things go Ben. Gotta spend money just to get the engine working in my car as it is. Needs tuning, driveshafts and rear lower control arm bushes at least.

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
