      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. These gearboxes are good for 500NM . Superchips remap will take it to 470 NM . Certainly gives you a good shuff when you boot it .
  2. Same here, most of my life I’ve had Vauxhall cars, although they have been great I bought a Mk3 Titanium Focus 5 years ago and the drive and quality was so much nicer . On my 2nd Focus now . Never again to a Vauxhall. Glad u got the car you wanted . Just needs a minor remap now via Superchips 👍

    That’s ***** awful service . And they wonder why dealers struggle to get customers! You may have to check auto trader and travel a few extra miles.
  4. engine oil

    Not so sure . It’s GM spec for Vauxhall cars !
  5. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Not sure on the stats for the standard 0-60 times. Get the 150 bhp and remap it, it is exactly the same engine as the 182bhp . Probably a few thousand pounds cheaper too than buying the full blown 182bhp car.
  6. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Hey that’s good news. Is it the 150 or 182 bhp eco boost ?
  7. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Suppose that’s where a good reputable company will know what the safe limits are !
  8. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    As long as you use a reputable company then the risk is reduced . It’s also down to how the car is driven and looked after. But that can effect any car mapped or not. Any car thrashed to death will fail at some point. Just because someone remaps their car , doesn’t mean they race it to death. It’s all about the drivability and extra power for safe over taking.

    This current STLine was remapped at 1000 miles after I ran it in. It’s now on 11500 miles with absolutely no problems at all. It’s got a K&N filter on it too. Had it’s first service too with no issues. My previous Focus Mk3 Titanium 1.6 diesel was also remapped at 6000 miles and was sold with 50,000 miles on it with no issues. Todays cars are made restricted in power to meet worldwide differences in low quality fuel, poor air quality, etc. All the remaps do is tighten up the tolerances to within safe limits of the engine, and make them run how they should without being held back by the restrictive maps that the manufacturer set them at. In terms of mpg, yes both Focus’s have improved in fuel economy. The 1.6 diesel was about 10 mpg average better. This 2.0 diesel is about 5 mpg better but heck of a lot of smiles too. I’m tracking my fuel on every tank and it’s averaging 50 mpg over the whole tank .

    Oh ok. I got 18” on my car, still a good upgrade from the standard 16 or 17”.
  11. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    I’ve even remapped my wife’s bmw 116i F21 using superchips. Again the performance gain is incredible.
  12. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Along with fatter tyres and lowered stiffened suspension , the drive is so more rewarding than a standard Focus. What with the sporty looks and meaner front end, it’s definitely a great up grade than a standard Focus.

    Can vouch for superchips, done a great job on my STLine . If you google superchips they are one of the biggest remappers out there. They are country wide as well as world wide. People remap their cars from abroad using superchips. Ive read loads on different forums and not heard one bad remark about them . As for the headline figures , yes they are accurate. Lots of people have dyno d their cars afterwards and not been disappointed. Look on their website and read all the reviews from customers. This is my remap http://www.superchips.co.uk/search?make=9&fueltype=2&model=2&variant=3248 Its outstanding, actually scared me the first time I drove it away from Demon Tweeks where it was remapped. It was night & day the difference . Can’t recommend them enough.
  14. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Oh right. There won’t be any issues with Superchips thou. Trusted reputable company.
  15. Focus ST Line 1.5 Ecoboost 150/182ps

    Who was the remap with that you couldn’t re write the ecu ?
