  1. It's going into the dealer tomorrow (I have posted another thread here on that topic) so I will ask them. Thank you for the info.
  2. No I'm driving with the original one. Do you what changes there are to them? The overboost doesn't come into play. The car pulls fine, just not for the first 2-3 seconds when changing gears and giving it max throttle. What do you mean you would never hammer the throttle? I'm not giving it full revs while changing gears actually quite the opposite since the revs are very slow to loose the revs when accelerating hard and changing gears swiftly.
  3. Update: It was mapped once, but it got removed once I noticed the ticking.
  4. Yes I have tried with traction off. No difference.
  5. Yes I have had it mapped, but it is removed now.
  6. I find the 125 really hard to accelerate with. Mine has a noticeable lag. It's not turbo lag that is for sure. Best example is going full throttle 2nd to 3rd. There is ½ second turbolag, but it's like 20% power is missing. After around 2-3 seconds the last bit arrives. It really kills the joy as it feels like the computer or some valve is keeping it back. The power comes instantly. It's 100% certain it's not the turbo. I've tried another 125 edition - it does the same thing. Anyone else experienced this?
  7. When I drive the first couple of miles and the engine is cold, there is a noticeable engine noise. It's easy to hear especially when the windows are down and driving alongside walls or other solid barriers that resonates noise. The noise dissappears after 2 miles give or take. It is especially noticeable in 2. gear around 1500-3000 RPM. The weird thing is, that if I press the clutch and let the engine idle, the noise doesn't dissappear along with the revs. It takes some seconds, it's like a turbo or a wheel that has to rev down. It makes around 5-10 ticks per second and when I stop giving throttle t the ticking slows down- and becomes less "hard". I suspect the injectors, however I can't get it to make sense as they shut stop immediately when I stop giving throttle? Has anybody noticed this on theirs? tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick... tick ......tick.....tick....tick ............tick.....................tick.....................................tick...................................tick.................................................tick.. LOL I feel stupid, but hopeful it makes sense for you guys. I'm delivering it to the dealer tomorrow so I would really appreciate some input. Something else I've noticed. around 3000-3500 RPM the engines is not delivering linear power. It feels like it misfires a llittle - looses a little power around here.
  8. 70-130 in 3rd is crazy now. That is in kilometers - not miles :-)
  9. Meanwhile my Fiesta is still maxing it out :-) Effing love my car!
  10. Yeah but on the other end I only got 237 nm at peak (although the engine was perhaps a little too warm when it got tested). Point is, it's just a number :-)
  11. I don't really understand the obsession about numbers. 5-10 HP more or less etc. It's how it drives on the road that matters. Just get your cars mapped. It's a semi ST now :-)
  12. It's simple really, if you are worried about your warranty - don't get your car mapped. Win some lose some.
  13. Max speed. Never tried it - before or after. But it's hell of a lot faster to 0-100 mph :-) I'd say probably shaved a second of 0-100. I'm not crazy about revving hard and slamming the clutch :-) Same fuel consumption. More when you use the power, lower in daily use since I can overtake in higher gear.
  14. But still there has been a lot of talk about different turbos. This would indicate that it's identical.
  15. Alright here is the numbers. 152 BHP / PS and 237 NM. Another guy got his Fiesta done as well (100 BHP Ecoboost). 145 BHP / PS and 249 NM. Perhaps they are the same turbos afterall :-) Mine is still running like a charm btw.
