Well.. had a bit of a shock today!
Here I am at Mountune HQ to get the MR155 upgrade done, and they tell me it already has it!
Presented me with a copy of the certificate and said it was done in 2012 at Jackson's Ford.
I was sold the car as an MP140, only have the 140 badge and certificate.. weird!
But yes apparently I'm now (and always have been) the owner of an MR155 fiesta :P

Hmm...  that seems strange - its probably my cynical nature as i worked for Ford but it sounds dodgy - just does not seem to "add up" - perhaps it was done that way for insurance or warrantee reasons eg - it was an MR155 but had MP140 insurance or retained the warrantee

Yeah it seems really odd to me as well but I suppose as nothing is wrong with the car I can't complain! The bloke who owned it before me wasn't exactly very old so my guesses are insurance purposes. Do feel a bit awkward that my insurance has basically been void this whole time.... :wacko:

Yes, but with you, me & everyone else the insurance company being none the wiser and no real way of checking short of putting the car on a dyno it shows you what a game the whole thing is!

 

You allways said it was quick - now you know why! :lol:

Is this a one off tune up or do you have to have it done every so often like a service? How does MPG compare?

It is one off and does not need to be done" every so  often" - its not a "tune up" but a remap, where the ECU is reprogrammed for more performance/ sometimes economy

 

On a Mountune kit there is often hardware like Higher flow filters, hoses manifolds etc

 

Mountune is affiliated with Ford and the manufacturers warrantee is often retained after a kit is fitted - often Mountune kits a a bit more expensive than competing tuners but has this advantage

Hahah yeah it does explain a lot! Like why she always idled quite high! I was really looking forward to seeing how much better she was with the 155 :lol:

As for the MPG I wouldn't know, this is the only car I've ever driven haha, it does about 35mpg for me but when I got it it did over 40mpg and about 350 miles to a tank

Yea this is like £50 to fill up haha, end of the day you could map your car purely for the purpose of making it more fuel efficient if you wanted to

Very nice, sitting here on the tip of Africa our Mountune kits are not Warenteed by Ford, so stupid, so its better to get this kit once the car is out of its service plan.
