Fiesta 05 Plate Remap?

Recommended Posts

Hi I've just registered to the forum, although I have been viewing it for a while. I have recently started modding my Fiesta 1.4 zetec and was wondering if it would be worthwhile getting it remapped/chipped? What gains am I looking at and are there any down sides?

Thanks for the advice :)

If it's a petrol:

If its a diesel:

IMO, if its a petrol you have there is very little point. If you want more power stop modding now and get a car with a bigger engine. There is no point spending lots of money on mods and insurance to make a 1.4 which will be no quicker than a 1.6 when it would probably work out cheaper to trade-up to a 1.6. An unmolested 1.6 would be worth more than a modded 1.4 come resale time as well.

If its a diesel, it gives reasonable gains but £400+ the cost of higher insurance prices make it an expensive option.

Dont expect the jump in fuel economy which some mappers advertise either.
