Remaps for that little gain at that price IMHO are not really worth the hassle, unless you are going to tweak the rest of the car, including exhaust, intake, etc

Yeah i agree with the majority of opinions its not really worth it when you look at price vs power gain! Id be better saving for the 180bhp zetec s mk3! But interesting all the same!

Thats probably a stock reading vs bluefin remap with the car kitted out with exhaust and intake mods lol

I did the same custom 50mm throttle body as JW1982 - there is noticeable improvement, so I recommend this mod!

you can trust, but:

- I don't have ti-vct, but only casual 1.6 100, but I doubt that variable cam timing could affected by bigger throttle

- As far as I know, engines 1.25, 1.4 and 1.6 has exactly the same throttle body - I can't believe that 45mm diameter is equally suitable for all of then (1.6 needs 28% more air then 1.25). With 50mm throttle, my 1.6 engine can breath easier and better

- It's quite common to install bigger throttle body (55mm -> 60mm) in 1.8/2.0 Duratec engines and I haven't heard about any expensive repairs caused by such mod
