not much performance wise I don't think,
de cat,air filter ,remap should perk it up a bit,
Focus ST/RS alloys or Mondeo ST155 alloys
Mondeo ST leather interior (recaro)
lower it a touch

I will assume being a Ghia X it already has most of the toys?

good cars these, drive really well, handle really well for there size Wink
actually a peugeot engine I believe, just watch for injector seals going and sticky EGR valves
Wink

pictures please

Imo there isn't a lot you can do to any mondeo without making it look like a pile of shite, unfortunately they just aren't a good base car for modifying, just stick some wheels on, lower it and concentrate on power if I were you

First thing get the air filter back on before you kill your turbo (only takes one bit of grit in the wrong place)
Second get it running well, find out about that flatspot youve got in the boost, service etc
Then you can play with the boost, cooler, DV, ETC

But its not a bad place to start from if you do it right, sounded relatively healthy earlier

nice one matey, any info is good info, the more we can research easyer it is to get more power, if its the frenchie engine then it shouldnt be to hard to tune realy cos the 306 gt tdi jobies are used on the track a lot, so id expect this to be a pritty good base to start with Wink

I'd tend to agree with this to be honest. Maybe go for st bumpers and skirts (depending on what's already on there), lower and some nice wheels. Boots are huge though so plenty room for a nice install if that takes your fancy?

I maybe wrong but I'm sure these are fmic already so I'm sure it's just a case of buying a alloy core and some new silicone , looking good thoe I like it

Performance wise

As said above keep the standard air filter put a good cold air feed to it that's enough for a diesel

Ditch the cat and back box

Egr doesn't really help performance wise but stops all your used exhaust fumes been recirculated threw your boost pipes

Then your best bit get it mapped the differance is unreal Smile
