One disadvantage with the PSI box is the added NVH. The engine is hardly audible in stock form but turns a bit coarse with the box on. Also, there is a dead spot at 1500 rpm for the DDiS which is pronounced when the box is on. This evident when you feather the throttle say in second gear.

I am going to Pete's on Saturday. I need to get the air filter cleaned and oiled.
Hello Deet,

I too own a ZDI. I have one question for you.

You mention a dead spot at 1500 rpm. Do you find this without the PSI box. My car has a dead spot, which is really annoying when feathering the throttle, at around 1500-1600 rpm. I have raised a complaint with the INDUS guys, they have not been able to resolve this (long pending issue)

Thanks & drive safe.
Issac

PS: Me too in Cochin, perhaps we'll meet up sometime

Thank You Rajath. As shashank.nk rightly pointed out, we got a 2015 Fiesta.

I did enough nitpicking and more in the very first page of this thread. And ECM tops the list of things that could be better. Didn't want to call everything out again over here.

I wouldn't say the same about first gear though. Its no secret that the new Common Rail diesels struggle on steep inclines and that first gear helps to get out of tricky places without burning the clutch. I recall one such instance when we climbed Mullayanagiri on the Swift and had to stop mid way. It was a bit of struggle to get moving from that spot and finally we did thanks to that first gear.

This was a very hard decision. I was smitten by the new Fiesta when the car was relaunched in 2014. Drove it quite a few times, lived with it for a day and it became increasingly hard for me to ignore the Ford. Would have retained the Swift if money and space allowed.

Yes, it was there without the PSI box too. Just that the dead spot was more pronounced with the box. I seriously doubt MASS' capability to fix these kind of issues. And I really hate to give the car as an object of experiment for them. So, decided to live with that.

Do keep an eye out for the meets in this thread. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...ochin-128.html (Quick mini-meet(s) in Kochi (Cochin)) Kochi BHPians do meet often.

3 yrs, just 50K run, you seem to loved the way car handled then why sell ? I sold my swift after close to 7 years and the car behaved the same from day 1, it can definitely last much longer !!

That's the Fiesta Itch. No such reason to sell the Swift other than the love towards the New Fiesta that made Deetjohn go weak on his knees.
