It's only going to be a 1/4 " lip. Will be fine.
May 28, 2015, 09:14:27 AM
Although the 2.5" hitech does sound better.
May 28, 2015, 09:09:22 AM
IM, it's cheaper to make that way. They can just fit a 3" CBE after it then, no other changes. IMO, better off just getting a full 3" to start with.
May 28, 2015, 08:36:44 AM
Guys, have realised when replacing CAT that the 3" to 2.5" reduction on the Hi-Tech exhaust doesn't use a smooth or stepped reducer. There's just a black bit and it instantly goes from 3 to 2.5. Seems this can't be good for exhaust flow. Was it done this way for a reason?

Guys, where is the best place to buy bonnet struts/lifters? Collins, JWR and AS all sell the same kit from what I can tell, and they're all around $100-150 delivered. Anywhere cheaper? Cheers

Maybe he wants some cheap temporary rims and get his mags painted?
May 27, 2015, 09:54:20 PM
weow, just figured out the makita drill i've had for two years has a high speed...
May 27, 2015, 08:51:45 PM
Russ, are you seriously gonna drag the 5?
May 27, 2015, 08:02:25 PM
Drag racing rims with tall sidewalls for traction probably.
May 27, 2015, 07:59:15 PM
Why do you want tiny rims, Russ?
May 27, 2015, 07:49:24 PM
European XR5* owners have been putting base model Focus 16s on with chains since 2006.  There's a pic around somewhere from STOC showing them fitted
May 27, 2015, 02:21:03 PM
I would have thought 17s Russ, but as Robbo says, check offset.
May 27, 2015, 09:51:59 AM
Probably 16" Russ, but watch offset. You gonna get drag rims so you can get tall sidewalls?
May 27, 2015, 02:24:54 AM
Smallest rim that fits over stock caliper?
May 26, 2015, 11:53:34 PM
IM, think about the solenoid pulsing and the ECU altering it's duty cycle to control boost. Any fine alterations in length to the control hoses could affect it. Of course it will still run, but when boost is so high, I'd want every chance it has as much control as possible.
May 26, 2015, 10:37:53 PM
Ford put mine where the stock one was, nice and short hoses and no clicking :D
May 26, 2015, 09:26:31 PM
In my opinion it looks pretty crap there but I like my engine bay looking as stock as possible.
May 26, 2015, 09:09:40 PM
Ok fine, 17-18 psi.
May 26, 2015, 09:08:16 PM
With 20 plus psi of pressure going through a hose a few mm in diameter? I considered that but not sure if I fully buy that argument.
May 26, 2015, 08:47:50 PM
Makes the hoses too long. Might slow or alter response. Best place is the bolt on the firewall.

I think TAGBOG's idea would look good on the left hand side and maybe some side stripes?
