Is the MP275 Mountune Worth It

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm new here, and going to pick up my 2016 ST3 petrol on Friday (my third ST I've owned) but I have booked it in for a MP275 upgrade, as it will keep Ford happy on the warranty. However I've been reading that its not worth spending £1385, so should I cancel and stick with the standard car?

Any feedback is welcome.

Thanks

Ian

If it's out of warranty why not go for an aftermarket remap?

25 hp gain for over a grand? No thanks haha. I mean if you thinks it's worth it and you care that much about your warranty then go ahead, but theres much better bang for buck out there.

Also another 4 years on warranty on a 3 year old car? (So 7 years). Surely that's covering you for nothing other than a gaping hole in the side of the block? And that's only if you can provide proof you never ever exceeded 4000rpm and the engine was given 3 hours to warm up and another 2 to cool down every time you drove it. Oh and you'd need to provide your full ford dealer service history complete with an itemized bill for each component fitted.

Basically I'm saying most used car warranties after the first month are total crap and arent worth the paper they're printed on.

Personally, if I had that much money to spend, I would save some money, and fit a Quaife ATB helical LSD differential, to fully use the existing performance.

Absolutely; improves the handling tremendously.
