Which is why I asked the question and gave my opinion, although reading back contradicted myself a bit :wacko: I'm aware its owners responsibility and don't intend on breaking laws

Stoney it sounds like I dodged a bullet then?

Someone I spoke to today with a focus 1.6tdci said he had the same engine as me and his was 110bhp... I take it this is just ecu or the injectors are different.... or are there bigger differences between the two?

The focus is available in 90bhp and 110bhp 1.6TDCi model.
I have the 90bhp model now remapped to 120bhp

The 110 focus has bigger fuel injectors and can be mapped to 140bhp both focus also have a front mount intercooler which I don't think the fiesta has
So only differences would be injectors and intercooler.

Also you asked about the exhaust,
I'll try get some video's up but it sounds much the same as standard just a tad louder with the burble grunt of the engine and wistle of the turbo when you come off the pedal.
Its a 3" bore from the DPF back and sounds like a scooby when in 3rd gear at 3,000rpm

Thanks for that Lenny... Good to know!

So...The cars been remapped and on the rolling road. All I can say is GET IT DONE! Its now performing like the car should have been when it left the factory.

Going from memory (need to find the dyno sheet) the cars original output when they put it on the dyno was 100bhp and 160Ibft. So started off slightly above fords claims from go.

It now stands at just under 127bhp and over 200Ibft but was increasing each time they dyno'd it. Although not massive gains for a diesel... its alot compared to mountune and other places have advertised for this engine.

I was worried that it wouldn't be that noticable but it deffo is. Traction control is busier than before too. MPG seems unchaged once I drove it normally too. Rev limiters been upped and has a smoother torque curve and doesnt run out of puff at higher revs as much as before.

Overall I'm very happy. Celtic have a good set up and seem to know what they're doing and were friendly so I recommend

Now we just need to find out if this 'hex flag' actually exists.

Apparently there's some 'hex flag' that when hooked up to the dealer's equipment comes up to say the car's been modified and then off is written the warranty of the vehicle.

Hi, the reason they couldn't re-map is 2010 model TDCIs were fitted with a Bosch ECU instead of a Seimens one, and it is an anti-tamper , but I know they are working on cracking it, I was just into get mine done last Saturday, and told they couldn't do it, but they will eventually

Well to be honest ive only got a few months left on it anyways. The remap comes with a 12month warranty that if found somethings gone wrong due to the remap and the dealer wont touch it then I should be covered *touch wood

I just want to know if it exists, or if the dealer's can tell, because if not I'd get it done.

Thats fair enough mate. Each to their own. Especially if you have a lot of warranty left. They did say dealers shouldnt find it but i wouldnt be surprised if manufacturers have got something in place. Doesn't bother me tho :)

Yeah, it's something about logging the event in hexadecimal or something which is where the term 'hex flag' comes from, but I'm not sure if it exists or not, as surely those perimeters are deleted and replaced in the remap?

Ideally I'd do a turbo swap, new exhaust, new injectors, remap, front mount intercooler and so on, but then again my car's in for a new water pump now, which wouldn't be covered if my warranty was voided >_>

The way I understand it is that the warranty is sort of sectional eg if you modify the engine then the warranty for the engine is void but still intact for the rest of the car

Unfortunately, water pump is part of the engine :P so I'd have been stuffed >_>
