No, it just needs a few more k on the clock, it's not loosened up yet.

shell may give 1or2 extra horses the top speed is an estimate since everycar isnt built exact for example my ti vct is stated as 115bhp and was dynod at 121.1bhp with just the kandn panel filter some have 120.9 119.6 its all down to tolerances when the engine was built some have more bhp usualy and some a tad less so when the engine loosens up you should gain that bit extra if you dont it doesnt mean anythings wrong

I've had 118 out of the mark3 1.6tdci no private roads needed due to living on the isle of man (no speed limits on most roads out of town) don't know if it can go to 120 need to find a longer straight or carry more speed through the final corner.

How often will you get it to that speed though? I would have thought you wouldn't get much more than 116mph out of it. It's an engine designed more for economy than outright pace.

Try K&N for an air filter, I was looking on there the other day and there is one for the 1.6TDCI :)

I'm pretty sure that the cars are limited to max 120 anyway.
My work car will go faster but only because it's upgraded to allow it to do so with better shocks, brakes and other tinkering with the engine.
I've had it up past 125 but only a couple of times and only when specifically authorised to do so.

k and n filter or green cotton are the best rated wont increase noise much though for that its an induction kit and with heat soak from the engine you will lose power

+1 mate
Mine is limited to 185Km/h
I used to own a 1.3n/a toyota starlet that done 205Km/h and it would whipp my 1.6TDCi remapped focus.

I'm going back to Old School baby!!

Why, Why, Why ???

If you want something fast, don't buy a car designed for good MPG. Perhaps you should have considered a Focus ST or RS ??
