Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

The Mito Q2 diff should fit also.

Pricing one up and fitting.

You might have 200bhp+ out of a GPS but for overall performance it will get laughed at by much less powerful cars....

Puntokris had god knows how much power and he was chuffed keeping up with a Fiesta Zetec S...lol....

If you enjoy driving really fast in straight lines...carry on
The fiesta had 170bhp

And if it was an ST (although I'm sure PK said it was a Zetec S) it would have pissed all over him even standard.....oh unless it was driven by Stevie Wonder...

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

One of you is talking about straight line here and the other is talking about what would be what in corners ST pwns in corners but remapped Mjet in straight lines. Even i can do ST's in a straight line.

I thought we were all talking about real life driving, where the roads aren't dead straight, any monkey can drive fast in a straight line...

@adamcot, if you sorted out an ST, on anything but a straight road, he either wasn't bothering or you're the Stig in disguise...

I dunno, my real-life driving consists of Dual-carriageways and traffic lights Managed to find the cornering limits at the weekend though, diesel lump and soft-ish suspension definitely hampers progress a tad.

I'd think of tuned GPS's as mini-grand(e)-tourers rather than hot hatches - is by far the most apt description I can come up with You can cover a lot of miles on a tank and make rapid progress with ease (up to reasonable gearing limitations), you're never gonna win many track days though!

I agree that the ST would have me in a corner, but as Jimrod says, my "real life driving" is dual carriageways, A roads and motorways. Its dependant on the user I guess.....

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Sorry to steal the thread, bolt...

I am considering getting my GPS remapped... I've just recently covered 6k miles, shall I wait a bit longer to wear the engine in a bit more?

Has anybody had any grief from dealers regarding warranty? Have you put your car in for problems/services and they've voided warranty due to the remap? What's the reality of the garage checking the ECU?

I've got my GPS on a PCP Lease, so I hand back in about 2.5 years time, am I correct in saying redot will remove the map for free, if the need be?

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Mines been in for plenty of stuff and they havent said a thing. They ant pick the map up on there examiner and only likely to void it if they do find it and having the map has had a direct effect on the failed component. Yes red dot will removed the map for free.

Fair comment....Good fun using the mid range on the motorways... only up to 70mph of course! Had my 30-70 timed recently with a GPS thingy at 6.8 seconds, which I was well chuffed with... down from around 9 seconds standard...whooooooosshhh!

I'm just glad I live in rural shropshire, where the country lanes add to the entertainment...

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

not being funny mate, i have owend a Feza ST in my t-jet round corners and in a straight line, and it had breathing mods similair to mine.

I dont understand where everyone gets the idea that the Fiesta ST is an amazing car. for what it is, it is underpowered.

The GP chassis is just as well balanced and designed as the ST. But standard the Gp is not as sturdy.


Just to add, done one on track also.
