Definitely different head gasket unsure of the head but I think it's the same"

Different but the same lol which one would you choose ;)

Not herd anyone change there head gasket after a remap. Mountune never told me I needed to so I'd take it all with a pinch of salt.

Same box doesn't mean same ratios.

Might even be axle ratio that is the only change.

Has anyone tried looking on Etis to compare a 125 to 140?

Do you have the axle ratio listed anywhere?

On mine it has axle ratio right at the top in primary features.

I just checked two random cars from google images.

140PS Axle ratio: 4.06

125PS Axle ratio: 3.61

There is your difference :)

Not exactly sure how it works but it is effectively a final gear at the gearbox output which connects to the axles.

So it looks like the main ratios are the same and they just change the ratio on the output shaft. (which will effectively change the ratio for all gears).

Bit of searching leads me to think it might be part of the differential that is fitted to the gearbox.

So ask your contact to compare the diffs on the 125 and 140.

Other than to reduce engine wear & fuel consumption . . . . :)

5 gears means you won't be doing 140mph down the motorway any time soon though which is a huge loss. That's the only reason obviously ;]

Update on the Ford Fiesta 140 Black

Superchips provided me with a slightly less aggressive map and I have been running this for 2 weeks without any faults.

It does not feel that different from the 1st map in terms of performance, but it seems to be acting as it should.

The turbo still glows if you give it W.O.T for some time just before you end your journey.

I queried this with S/C's and they confirmed that it was fairly normal for the turbo's on these small engines to get hot (orange glow).

I now try to ensure the last 5 minutes of my journeys are mild to avoid the possible later turbo issues.

Fingers crossed no more fault codes or yellow dash spanner lights.

How are you getting on with the Bluefin map now?? Still going well?? Superchips currently have a sale on, so it's tempting (even just for track events).

Still considering the remap option. Has anyone else been suffering the gearbox issues mentioned earlier in this thread??

HI - We are looking to trade our Corsa in towards a Fiesta in the coming months as we already have a 1.0 Ecoboost Focus (125) and really like the Ford's. Is it advisable to get the 125 version of the 1.0 EB over the standard version? Thanks.

Hi!

Guys... This topic is awesome BUT now - I feel like crying.

I am based in India and in 3 days I shall receive a new EcoSport with the EcoBoost 1.0 125.

I bought the damn car - counting on a SuperChips remap which gives 156 bhp and 256 NM. No decent hot hatches in India unfortunately! I wanted the ecoboost engine too!

Can somebody PLEASE give me details on the Manual Transmission box of the INDIAN Ecosport EcoBoost!

I pray it is not this box - 5MTT170 - http://www.getrag.com/en/products/manualshift/manual_transmissions.html

Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm ! I thought that the clutch would be the limiting factor - not the actual transmission!

If I get an ECU remap which gives me 256nm of Torque and the transmission is rated Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm... Then what is going to happen ?

How screwed am I? Max torque comes in first gear yes...but what does all this mean? Can I expect reasonable gains?

Its too late to cancel my car now! I will put my car on a wheel dyno before & after the remap BUT this is very sad and it is misleading on SuperChips part!

Please help me understand this!
Thanks a TON!

Enjoy the first world!
