I'm new to all this and I was hoping that I could get some advice from people more experienced in this field...
I have a Ford Fiesta 1.6 tdci 90 bhp which runs out of the extended warranty very soon. I've had the car for few years and I am a bit dissapointed with its performance and economy. It's really slow and whenever I have to go back into it after driving something faster, I feel like crying.
I have read several posts on this forum re: remaps etc. I have no previous experience with tuning and always perceived it as a bit chavy... but the time has come and I will either make my fiesta a bit more nippy or I'll get rid...
What is your experience with 1.6tdci after remap/tuning box? Is it worth it? Do you notice a difference? I've had a look on youtube to see if I could find some figures like 0-60 etc but there is nothing there. I would want to keep it as stock as possible and I wouldn't want to change turbo, injectos, clutch etc.
Would remap/ tuning box do the trick?
On a separate note... I use my fiesta mainly on m'ways and found it shocking that a diesel engine is made to run constantly at 3000rpm if you intend to do 70 -75 mph. Is a remap/tuning box going to change anything? It seems a bit pointless having a diesel which is over-revved at motorway speeds. Even a 1.6 golf tdi keeps it under 2000 rpm at similar speeds.
