Oilburner how did the fitting go for you?



your guide is excellent
I really struggled to get the ecu lower mounting bolts back in. I got the front one in after alot of swearing and I gave up on the back after removing too much skin

I lost one of those screws so only put three back myself - 'twas a bit of a fiddle. But with three in and the wait on the battery it all seemed fine. I've now down over 3000 miles since fitting the box and my mpg does not go below 65 and that all types of driving but not crazy.

I did look at them but at nearly 400 it put me off. Do you have any info to back up the 'it loads' quicker - what does that mean?

Might be useful for future people looking for a box solution.

Really useful!
Thank you very much for the guide.
I've installed a tuning box in my 1.6 tdci 90ps and it's the same way.
Thanks again ;)

Excellent guide, I tried This evening to put the car on a lift and remove left wheel. I can see the connector, touch it with my finger tip, but not enough to unplug it. Will try from top next week, removing battery. One of the screws Holding the ECU is easily accesable from below

I Will have to remove the box for every service, as car is a lease car

Hi,
I did install it from the top of the car, and it takes quite a long time, and in my case that I have big hands it was really hard to disconnect it.
So take it easy, use a screw driver and hope it takes less than me.

Hi firstly thanks for taking the time to share the guide. I have a question I used to own a fiesta 2009 tdci 90ps which i fitted a tuning box to without problem in the location shown in your guide.
But I traded that car in for a 2011 95ps TDCI and I cannot locate the plug to install to this model. Can you confirm the year and model of your engine.

Thanks

This guide was created for the 95PS TDCi engine which yours is.

This guide was created for the 95PS TDCi engine which yours is.

My first attempt at fitting the tuning box to my 95ps engine had failed, even with the experience of fitting one to the 90ps engine.
So I wanted to be sure there wasnt maybe 3 engine variations before I followed this guide.

I was able to fit it to my 90ps engine by removing the fuel filter and housing (not recommended this method is much easier and saves the skin on your hands).
I have now succesfully fitted the tuning box to my 95ps engine (this afternoon) thanks to this guide.

A tip for anyone else I found it easier to remove the air filter box, this allows you to lift the battery tray and ecu out of the way just enough to get your arm around the back.
Without the need to get to the fiddly bolts under the battery tray to remove it from the ECU mounting.
