Did you get the remap and gpf delete? (Also - Did you mean the gpfs can "wipe ot the internals and adjust ...Ecu..no lights ...dash"? Or, the gpf delete can?)
Hi
Havnt got round to any mods on the car yet (which is strange for me having fiesta st's etc) .covid 19 has a lot to blame for this. I've had a complete career change , I work 100% from home now and car isn't really doing a lot of miles so a remap / gpf delete isn't on the books. Still very happy with it , had 2nd service done and all fine.
Gpf delete is filter having its internals taken out then mapped so no fault lights / errors show up on dash. I've seen some very good results with other cars but at the moment all on hold .

Hi, thanks for update. I'm at home too; find it nice to take the car out for a run sometimes. Anyway, on the gpf delete: surely you would need to add it back before the first MOT (to pass emissions test)?

Oh, wait!?

GPF is the cause for performance change?
The older 5dr ATM cars were claimer 7,2sec > 62mhp, newer ones 7,8 sec.
Early ones in the 2016 brochure listed at 6.6 secs. Later brochures 7.2 secs.
I thought the reason for the reduction in 0-62 time was a gearing change - previously it could do it in second gear?

Yep that's correct mine does 59mph in 2nd with the rev limiter , but it's not something I do much lol.
I usually just poodle around in the car and have a bit of fun now and again when a boyracer sits on my backside , 10 secs later you can hardly see him in the mirror !
