How to turn up the fuel and boost on the Ford Escort Mk6 1.8 Turbo diesel Endura-De engine

Fordwiki infobox.png
Overview Guide
Ford Model: Escort Mk6
Petrol/Diesel: Diesel
Turbo: Yes
Estimated Cost: Depends (If you buy a boost controller)
Difficulty? Easy/Medium
How long does this take? (Approx 15 mins if you do the fuel mod only) - (Approx 1 Hour, if fitting the boost controller and boost gauge)


There’s no need to open the fuel pump plug and go all through that hard work because you can add more fuel in a very simple way. Locate the fuel pump and locate where the small 6mm boost pipe going into the fuel pump. There should be a 14mm nut and a 4mm allen head bolt. Screw it off completely and remove it, look inside there should be a small spring. Remove the spring and screws the allen bolt back in place do not tighten it completely, tighten about ¾ of the full thread. Lock the 14mm nut and the fuelling is turned up by now. If you want more power screw out a bit more.


Firstly, you must fit a boost gauge to know how much boost there is. Shorten the wastegate rod or put a boost controller inline with the turbo outlet nipple and the wastegate and turn the boost up to 15psi if it’s with the standard top mount intercooler. More boost can be achieved with a big front mounted intercooler. That should be about it. It may a bit smokey but it will have more power.

Do this at your own risk. I accept no responsibility if any damage may occur.
