advice on engine performance upgrades

Recommended Posts

Boys and girls of the EcoBoost fiesta family, I'm looking at increasing the performance of my engine fyi I have a 1.0 125. Been looking at induction kits and hard pipe upgrades but can't decide which ones to get. Is there any difference between kits and what would you recommend. Also remapping the ECU is off the table due to funds.

I've got SD primary and secondary hoses and a DNA cross over pipe. The hoses were second hand are still fine. 

The crossover pipe hasn't been great, the fittings at the rear had to be bodged to fit and the right hand bracket snapped off. Still works but I've spent a fair bit of time making it work. Can't complain for £105 all in though. Also DNA seem to have vanished.

Honestly I don't think you'll see any noticible difference without a remap. 

Those pipes and filter changes might help with longevity of your engine with a remap, I don't think it'll do much else.

Yeah I'm going to get a remap on mine before long.

Slight improvement in low down torque and high end pull but a remap will let an engine make better use of what's available.
