1.4 Tdci / Mk6 - Chipping A Good Idea?
Posted 10 June 2010 - 08:26 PM
Have a 1.4 TDCi Fiesta Mk6. As you probably know, not much bottom-end torque and not much power.
Looking at chipping options. Found a chip kit for £95 from dieselexpress.co.uk which increases power by a claimed 22% and torque by 25%
Question is - is it worth doing? As it is, the car is OK for pottering around town and will eventually wind up to a decent speed on the motorway but struggles up hills, especially with more than just the driver on-board.
Could do with some advice. Yes, I am aware of the insurance implications & would notify same.
Ideally want a solution that DOES NOT involve re-mapping the engine management.
Have something to contribute?

Fitting a Tuning Box will give you the torque you need for more "drive" so you do not need to work the engine as hard and you will be able to use a higher gear because of this..
Why would you not want a remap? It is far better than a tuning box unless it is down to cost..
