  1. I feel like crying. I am based in India and in 3 days I shall receive a new EcoSport with the EcoBoost 1.0 125. I bought the damn car - counting on a SuperChips remap which gives 156 bhp and 256 NM. No decent hot hatches in India unfortunately! I wanted the ecoboost engine too! Can somebody PLEASE give me details on the Manual Transmission box of the INDIAN Ecosport EcoBoost! I pray it is not this box - 5MTT170 - http://www.getrag.com/en/products/manualshift/manual_transmissions.html Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm ! I thought that the clutch would be the limiting factor - not the actual transmission! If I get an ECU remap which gives me 256nm of Torque and the transmission is rated Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm... Then what is going to happen ? I was counting (bigtime!!) on the additional power! How screwed am I? Should I expect - zero, a little or significant gains in WHEEL HP ? I was hoping for improved 0-100 kmph timings! Should I expect - zero, a little or significant damage to any components !? Please give me clarity! Thanks a TON guys! Its too late to cancel my car now! I will put my car on a wheel dyno before & after the remap BUT this is very sad and it is misleading on SuperChips part! Please help me understand this! Thanks a TON! Enjoy the first world!
  2. Hi! Guys... This topic is awesome BUT now - I feel like crying. I am based in India and in 3 days I shall receive a new EcoSport with the EcoBoost 1.0 125.

I thought that the clutch would be the limiting factor - not the actual transmission! If I get an ECU remap which gives me 256nm of Torque and the transmission is rated Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm... Then what is going to happen ? How screwed am I? Max torque comes in first gear yes...but what does all this mean? Can I expect reasonable gains? Its too late to cancel my car now! I will put my car on a wheel dyno before & after the remap BUT this is very sad and it is misleading on SuperChips part! Please help me understand this! Thanks a TON! Enjoy the first world!
  3. Hi! Has anyone applied any performance upgrades to their Ecosport? Anybody "chipped" their car yet? http://www.superchips.co.uk/search?make=9&fueltype=3&model=602&variant=3214 The Ecosport with 156 BHP & 258 nm of torque sounds much more attractive! Unfortunately, I live in India... Therefore, I am NOT spoiled for choice with regards to cars available! It is a sad, sad car scene here. Enjoy the first world and thanks a TON!
