I have the same scepticism as above, but for slightly different reasons.


Hi thanks for your reply, i know i’m a bit late on the answer but I don’t check the email i used for this account that much.

I do agree on many of your points as they are quite similar to the thoughts I had myself. But some of the things you mention should not be a problem.
Wheels, actually the standard tire on my model was a 215/60-16 and today the 163 hp engine do sell with the 205/55-16 tire. But besides this I run 18” in the summer so that should not be a concern except for the fact that I need to get tires with a higher speed grade for my winter tires.
8 valves, this is not an issue my engine is 16 valve. It was only the 1,8 tdci that was 8 valve (at least when I bought mine)
Intercooler, as far as I know I have a intercooler on my car, but I agree it might be smaller than the one on the 163 hp edition.

Turbo I do agree that this might be one of the ways ford could have saved some money by fitting a smaller turbo. Unfortunately I cannot find any sites selling original turbo or intercoolers so I cannot do a check on those parts.

I have compared other parts such as suspension, brakes etc and most of them seems to be identical on all 2.0 TDCI’s

FOCA>>I it would be nice if it was actually true but I would tend to believe that the 140 hp version is the standard as the 163 version was introduced later.

Hi thanks for the reply, and dont worry you are not bursting any bubbles as I’m quite skeptical myself.

If you read my question again you can actually see that I’m interested in finding out if there are other differences between my car and the larger variants other than settings in the ECU. I would myself expect that there are some differences but also some similarities. As I understand it The Econetic 2,0 115 HP has basicly the same engine as the larger 140 and 163 hp. I also understand that is produced in limited numbers as it was target to get below 140 g CO2 which in some countries equates to a lower tax rate. So it could be that it was cheaper for Ford to simply detune a 140 hp version than doing big changes to a model they knew would be exchanged with the new 1,6l engine.

However finding complete parts list is impossible so I was hoping some of you might have the information. The only difference I aware of is that my car actually has a 10 mm lower suspension than the 140 hp version in order to reduce air resistance.

buying the more powerful car s not an option. As I said I live in a car unfriendly country and a 163 hp version cost almost 48.000 pound. And since I might only get 20.000 pounds for my current it is not an option.
