I have one on my diesel - no difference at all, but not a fan of the paper ones.

recon it would ruin the engine though or put it under more strain as its already a tuned 1.0?

jd_james yeah i did think that, if it was the 1.6 then i would be less worried but squeezing all the power out of a 1.0 is more of a risk, will have to see what happens when people get it done :)

200bhp from the engine runs fine, so I don't see why 140bhp won't. I mean if 20bhp is available just from a remap, it should be easy enough.

 

The 1.0 isn't tuned from factory, despite it being in 2 guises, it's tuned down to 100PS, and even the 125PS will be tuned down to a good extent, hence why a remap can pull them to 140bhp without a problem I'd imagine. Then consider what can be done to a turbo car, replacement induction system (the box like the Mountune kit), exhaust from the turbo, the turbo manifold, injectors, cams, hybrid turbo; I don't really see 200bhp being stupidly difficult to achieve. 180 should be an easy safe limit in my eyes.

I have a diesel, it's running nicely and fetching me 60mpg average, I'm hitting high 60's and the occasional 71, but then when I give it a blast it pulls it down a bit. Much nicer car to drive than the prefacelift. All I'm doing with mine is the panel filter I already had, and my headlight upgrades where I just have fogs left to do.

 

I ordered an ST2 yesterday as my trackday car replacement, so no need to modify my ZS, as I plan on just doing speed limits with that one :P

I totally agree with what you say as did read somewhere that ford are going to extract 170/180bhp from the standard 3 cylinder 1.0 ecoBoost engines in time and do away with the 1.6 :)
When they designed them i don't think 1.6 EcoBoost was a longterm plan an think they they were always going to do bigger things with the smaller 1.0 engine as a way forward with CO emissions etc !
Give it a year or so an the 1.0 ecoBoost will be putting out 180bhp an be in the St :)

Traded in my previous track day car and a Mini to get it :P

 

It's more comfortable to be in generally, the seats are nicer and the steering wheel is thicker and all leather which feels nice in the hand. Bumps are much less obvious due to better tyres, and the car is much smoother.

 

Got a bit of a review here: http://www.fordowner...e-zetec-s-2013/

Right in the next few months im possibly going to swap my mk7 ZS in for the new ZS or ST, I heard good reports on both and just wondering how people find the new ZS? is it better than the mk7?

Thanks :)

Yes that is true as i read it in a mag lastyear , think they might do away with the 1.6 in time as the 1.0 is the future being cheap to run also emmisions an insure Etc .
