ANOTHER 1.4 TURBO

Post by SRINAV180 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 9:57 am

HAVE A COSMIC GREY SRi NAV 1.4 TURBO AUTO BOUGHT AT 7k lLAST YEAR NOW ON 20k. AFTER A SMALL PARKING DENT BOUGHT SOME SIDE PROTECTION GUARDS, SPRAYED THEM BODY COLOUR AND FITTED.ALSO STAINLESS SILL GUARDS. CAR DOES 42-44 MPG ON LONGER RUNS,BUT ACCORDING TO SAT NAV THE SPEEDO IS 6 % OPTIMISTIC WITH TYRES AT 39 ps, SO IS THE MPG ALSO OPTIMISTIC ?
SO FAR VERY PLEASED WITH PERFORMANCE.IT IS BOOKED FOR A REMAP TO 180 bhp AND 270 NM TORQUE INCLUDING A DYNO RUN TOMORROW BUT ON READING ABOUT PISTON FAILURES ON NO 1 CYLINDER, AM WORRIED MIGHT CAUSE ENGINE FAILURE?? CORRECT OIL HAS BEEN USED FOR SERVICES AT 7k and 18 k . CAR REGISTERED 9/2/17
ADVICE PLEASE?

Also advice, don't use CAPS and make lines between sentences.

Makes it easier and nicer to read.

Anyways, congrats on the car and welcome.

Well any remap is going to put a little more stress on the engine , no guarantees as to reliability though as VX dont have an approved tuner eg mountune for ford. Good to know the correct oil has been used Dex 1 gen 2 from new so can't see why you shouldn't do it. Just don't drive mad (tempting as a little more power under your right foot) .30bhp is a nice increase , similar to my Ford Fiesta st and it DOES make a difference.
