The HP after the tune is very close to that of the upcoming Fiesta ST.

Hi, you've the 182ps engine, mine is the 150ps, in driving the gains seem much greater than you suggest so maybe it is different. As far as I am aware they produced the remap from the 160ps Mondeo engine.

The increase in torque can make you feel quicker and in driving it makes sense.150 ps's may be a different story ;hard to say without measuring it .

H, an increase in torque is exactly what I needed and more important. I wonder if you ended up with the wrong map. My car is so much quicker with the remap, scarily so and as quick as my last one was. The only thing lacking is in the 6th gear grunt compared to the remapped diesel, but then that's to be expected. Superchips are a reputable company and one of the leaders in remapping so I don't know what happened with yours.

Nothing happened .The figured values in their website are inflated up to me.I am telling its better to be sceptic rather than believing every word thay say so.Just go on a dyno and paste the output here and we all see if the values are identical,ok?

Hi, well superchips are offering a free dyno to back up their figures, but really, I think I can tell a difference in few hp/torque then from what they say are the increases by driving it. I can compare my mk4 mondeo with a remapped 175bhp and a extra 55ftlbs of torque, in a heavier car, to my remapped focus. You seem to be suggesting that superchips are frauds???
