Anything For A Diesel

Recommended Posts

Might sound a bit daft but is anywhere able to do an upgrade for a ford focus 1.6 2012 115ps. Looking for more grunt or should a remap be adequate enough?

Get a proper remap - most if not all tuning boxes will over fuel your engine - resulting in dpf issues sooner rather than later

Where would you suggest? I was looking at Bluefin but the gains don't look too impressive I'd only gain 21BHP and 44nm torque

Having had Bluefin on my old Mondeo ST TDCi & currently on my TXS I'd recommend it - but if it doesn't add enough for you then maybe google '' Focus 1.6 remap '' & see what comes up ?

20% increase in bhp is considered safe & within the design tolerances so + 21bhp in your case seems reasonable & torque is more important than bhp on a diesel

Hmm I think I'll go ahead with the remap once I've saved up a little extra, seems a massive increase on torque hoping I'll be able to feel that kind of increase.

And let your insurance know earlier rather than later... :)

I'm giving them a ring today to see if they will let me, if they don't I'll have to find another company last time they winged about me putting a k&n induction kit on my fiesta mk7 told me to remove it or they will void my cover, hopefully they will be okay with a remap if not time to look around.
