  1. Ha ha in that case you'll be fine to get the part from Ford.
  2. If that's the coolant pipe that fits into the turbo you'll not be able to order it without buying a whole turbo from Ford anyway.
  3. Fiesta 140ps Bluefin Chip

    Hi Lewis the warranty on your car would already be voided by Ford should you have any engine related issues just by having the exhaust and air filter fitted. There was another guy on here that had an engine fail with a custom exhaust and Ford wouldn't honour the warranty because of it. If your original question relates to insurance then I would say you are safer with a re map rather than an exhaust and aftermarket air filter as they are very easy for an insurance assessor to spot. Most insurance companies send one out to inspect accident damage and they will always report back as to if the car has been modified in anyway. I hope my advice has been helpful. I would like to add that my car is a 123Bhp ecoboost which was re mapped with Bluefin and now at 32k its still running fine the only upgrade I did was to fit a larger intercooler as the temps were a bit high for my liking.
  4. 2016 Fiesta Mk7 key programming in keyless car

    I have a similar issue as the OP here is a solution. Google http://forscan.org/ It is a piece of software that gives you dealer level diagnosis and key programming ( read the forum for more info on that topic) The software is free all you need is ELM 327 USB TO diagnostic plug lead https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01F0GVBWY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have used the above lead on my windows 10 laptop and it works as it should if you have windows 7 you may need to look about for a driver.
  5. Thinking of remapping, is it worth it?

    I have the same engine in my fiesta and had mine re mapped once the engine had done 2000 miles and it made a great improvement to how the engine pulls. The biggest improvement is lower down in the rev range as Ford limit the torque output due to the gearbox being on the limit of what it can handle. It also gives a bit of extra omph higher up in the rev range mine has done over 30,000 miles now and I have had no issues. Forgot to mention I used Bluefin.
  6. Best Remap for 1.0l ecoboost 125

    I have a eco boost 125 and re mapped it after 2,000 miles with Super chips it has really changed how the engine responds as the torque low down is hugely improved and it pulls nice and strong to the red line. My car has now covered 30,000 miles and all is well I have looked at a stage 2 map for my car but was put off as the 5 speed box is not strong enough to deal with the extra torque if you search in the forums you'll most likely find a few members that have had gearbox problems from too much torque.
  7. Where did you go for the remap ? Have you changed your exhaust from standard?
  8. stage 2 stage 3 Remapping

    I think Stage 1 is the sweet spot as it's quite cheep to have done and gives you great mid range torque as Ford limited this to stop the five speed boxes from being a warranty issue and a bit more top end power. I have had mine running at 150Bhp since around 2k miles now I am on 27k and am really wanting more but as mentioned above I am quite put off buy the chance my engine could give up on me and that you need a bigger inter cooler £350 and full cat back exhaust £1050.
  9. Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost oil cooler installation

    If it was me I would either fit a aftermarket gauge so that oil temp could be monitored OR use one of those bluetooth OBD port plugs with a bit of software on your phone and see if its possible to monitor it that way. You can also tell if the engine oil has over heated (120 Deg C or so) as it smells burnt but as the other poster said I very much doubt youll have any issues as Ford would have tested that engine is every climate going. If you are tracking the car with a re map and really do want to go for a aftermarket oil cooler my suggestion would be to use a Laminova oil to coolant type cooler as you cant over cool the oil as the heat is being dumped into the engine coolant system which is how the standard Ford oil cooler works apart from its much smaller. Another advantage of that style of cooler is it aids fast oil heat up from cold as the engine coolant heats up way quicker than the oil.
  10. rearview camera connection to new headunit

    Paramaniac Please try link below it has many pics of my car. Having issues trying to get the exact link as PhotoBucket is very slow this morning. http://s1208.photobucket.com/g00// This is the direct link Please note the housing is a work in progress there is much to finish but it gives you an idea of what I am going for.
  11. rearview camera connection to new headunit

    Black plug that connects to the small LCD display pin no / Function 6 picture / center pin 11 shield neg 12 brown green neg I have done the above in my Fiesta Titanium X with a Alpine 800 DU.
  12. 1.0 Ecoboost Rear Disc Upgrade

    I have just bought a full set of brakes from a ST and have found that one benifit is that the rear twist beam is a good few millimetres thicker than the beam from a drum brake car thus will help with body roll when cornering.
  13. Satnav retrofit help

    Hi I have the same spec fiesta as you and the Rev camera connections are in the large black plug that has a latch so if they are run into that 4 pin green plug you'll need to get some screened cable and connect on to them and run them into that green connector. i did have the pin outs for the Rev camera written down as I had to work them out when I fitted my Alpine unit. I done this by stripping the boot and following the cable run to a plug on the NS / C post and then jus buzzed them out from there. If it will help I can dig them out tomorrow night. Regards karl
  14. Agreed its way to complex to go changing displays these days as they are usually integrated into the car security system among other things. I use this app Torque Pro (OBD 2 & Car) It has to be used in conjunction with a Bluetooth OBD reader https://www.amazon.co.uk/Goliton®-Bluetooth-Compatible-Android-Support/dp/B009NPAORC/ref=sr_1_6?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1472940910&sr=1-6&keywords=bluetooth+obd+reader
  15. aftermarket radio fiesta mk7.5

    I changed my stereo a good few months ago and went with a Connects 2 adaptor which allowed me to use the steering wheel controls with my stereo and still hear the audible beeps from my factory front and rear parking sensors. https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/ctsfo008-2-ford-b-max-c-max-fiesta-focus-escape-steering-wheel-stalk-control-adaptor.html As for the reverse camera I am not sure if that device allows you to keep it, I just re wired my factory reverse camera into my stereo and its worked great. It seems that we are really limited with aftermarket adaptors for the fiesta as I have lost the small display screen but gained an Alpine 8 inch media centre. Also, I think the aftermarket fascia kit is just way to angular and really doesn't suit the interior of the Fiesta.
