2011 Focus Engine Cover

08 February 2012 - 05:19 PM

Hi guys, to remove the engine cover in the new MK3 1.6 TDCi focus is it as easy as this - i.e. just remove the oil cap and pull, can you leave the cap on? or are there any nuts to remove.

Also on a similar note - how do I remove one of the injectors to have a look? Do I just pull on them to get them out or do I have to unscrew them or something?

Apologies for these basic questions but you gotta start somewhere!

2011 Ford Focus Mk3 1.6 Tdci Re-Map

05 January 2012 - 12:40 PM

Hi Guys,

So I've found someone who can remap the new Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi, after e-mailing them a few questions:

Hi I have just a few questions:
How much will the re-map for my vehicle cost?
Also where will the nearest place be for me, or do you offer a call-out service?
Is the e-Motion unit available for my vehicle, if not, then will it be in the future?
Finally when it goes into the dealer for servicing, if they update the ECU with their own new map, will you replace it with the re-mapped software free of charge?
Thanks Regards

Thank you for your enquiry with Celtic Tuning, leaders in Electronic Engine Enhancements.

With a global dealer network and full mobile operations in England and Wales, we pride ourselves on both the quality of our software and the delivery of our work. The benefit of choosing Celtic Tuning over the competition is quite simply that, unlike most others, we actually write & develop our own software in house giving us endless flexibility to provide the tuning solution that suits you.

All of our work is developed and tested on our state of the art dynamometer, the Dastek 750. With full monitoring facilities for all engine parameters, it enables us to provide the safest software upgrades for your vehicle without detriment to the longevity of your engine/drive train and all of which is fully MOT compliant for emissions testing.

The 1.6 TDCi engines we can take from 113bhp up to 145bhp and from 199lbft torque up to 240lbft torque giving a very impressive performance gain and all within safe design tolerance of the engine and drive train components. Our ‘fast road’ software is designed to provide linear power delivery without any harshness to the acceleration, the benefit being prolonged life of your clutch and a superior drive over standard. We are also able to provide software aimed specifically at economy and also for track use in various stages.

With the fast road software upgrade you can expect to see a 2-5mpg improvement in economy, this is very much dependant however on the way in which the vehicle is driven. For testimonials of our work please follow the link: http://www.celtictun...stimonials.aspx

To provide added peace of mind for customers with vehicles still under warranty, we provide a FREE 12 month’s insurance backed supplementary warranty. For full terms of the warranty please download the brochure here: http://www.celtictun...ng_Warranty.pdf

The cost of the remap is £375 all inclusive for which we travel to your location whether it is home or work place. This comes with a 14 day money back guarantee which gives you plenty of time to ensure it is exactly what you are after.

Due to the nature of the ECU, it requires removal in order to remap. The eMotion is unlikely to be available in the near future. If Ford were to reflash back to standard, we charge a £75 fee to come and put the remap back on for you.

If you wish to go ahead with the remap please forward us your contact details (address, Post Code and Phone number) and we will be in touch to arrange a booking very soon. Alternatively if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask as our technical team will be able to answer any questions you may have.



So anyone here with the same car as me contemplating whether to get it done?

Also does anyone know roughly how long this might take?
