Hi everyone,

 

Does anyone know the difference between the two engines regarding the power difference and is it worth the effort to upgrade the fiesta engine to the focus engine before getting a remap?

 

thanks in advance.

Power difference is 20PS and this comes from larger injectors, possibly a bigger turbo and, of course, an engine remap ;)

I heard of someone who attempted it and pretty much ruined his engine, just stick with a remap and you'll get 120PS on your standard engine anyway.

Ah that doesn't sound positive. Is it worth asking Ford? as I'd rather get 140 from adding these parts and a remap. Obviously unless the cost is stupid. What performance mods did yours have?

Ford won't have a clue, and I didn't have any performance mods :(

I had a 1.6 TDCI Focus for a long time whilst my 1.6 TDCI fiesta was being built.

 

In a nutshell, i miss the Focus!  With the 6 speed box in the focus it was a lot of fun, and i think it caught people out when you could just plant it and boom, you are doing 70!  First thing i said was, oh why didn't they put this set up in the fiesta, more to the point, the zetec S.  It would have made buying the ZS with a 1.6 6 speed 115 bp over a petrol version in ZS far more attractive.

 

The 5 speed 1.6 TDCI 95ps is weak and old.  It's ok when up to speed, but...  getting there is crap!  If there was an upgrade / remap for it, then i think a lot of ppl would look at this, i know i am looking right now.

 

Nath, did you say there IS a remap available for the Fiesta 1.6 TDCI in th form of a remap and giving 120ps???

I know of at least 2 tuners that can, RS Tuning in Leeds & AMD in Essex. Bye bye warranty though!

Exactly!!

 

Be worried about the increased wear and greater pressured being drawn and pushed through different components!  I tell you what, for the same engine, that 1.6tdci focus was LOADS of fun!  Handled very very well.
