Default Re: EcoSport TDCi: Tuning Box or Remap?

Gentlemen, here's a question for all the fine folks who contributed to this thread and everyone else in the know - Has anyone done an ECU remap of the EcoSport Ecoboost variant or know of someone who has got it done?

I would like to hear user reviews, opinions and recommendations if any. Thinking of getting my 1,0 Ecoboost remapped.

Many thanks!

Default Re: Race Dynamics Tuning box for Ecosport

Hi,

I'm bumping up this thread as it doesn't seem to have any updates, and the products available have changed. I want more performance from my Ecosport, especially the low end. The TDCi is a bit sluggish off the mark, and even the supposedly inferior 3 pot TUV300 has a much better throttle response. It is great on the highway, but in City traffic, you need to do quite a bit of footwork to keep it smooth. If left idling for long red lights, there's a tendency to stall when letting out the clutch, which can be frustrating. Since my Titanium model comes with the Start/Stop button, there's a small lag involved when restarting the engine, leading to much honking from behind..

I looked through the thread, and while a remap seems to offer more benefits, the tuners I contacted have warned that a remap will indeed void the warranty, and have advised me to stick with a piggyback ECU for the time being. As I am wary of getting adventurous with Ford's warranty policies and service, I've almost decided to play it safe and go for a 'Tuning Box' from either Pete's or Dieseltronics.

I'm from Trivandrum, and while most of the tuning scene is at Kochi, Dieseltronics and Pete's both have dealers here. I called up AT Car Modz for Dieseltronics and Concept on Wheels for Pete's, and asked for details.

Dieseltronic: AT Car Modz // The Performance Hub, TC-91/165 (1), Karikakam PO, Trivandrum // +919995110132

Concept on Wheels ( PDS & PPS )
Contact Person: Mr Anas Najeeb, Mr Sreekumar
Address:Near Aluthuman School
Vettu Road
Kazhakkoottam
Trivandrum 695582 TRIVANDRUM Mob:
Anas Najeeb: +91 9048990009
Sreekumar: +91 9048990716

AT Car Modz is not open on Sundays. Mr. Abraham Tharakan, who I presume is the person who answered (TrueCaller), was very helpful, and recommended that I go for the Dual Channel box for the Ecosport. He quoted a price of 26K, and offered to give references.

Concept on Wheels is open on Sundays, and Mr. Sreekumar, who I called, invited me to come over to the shop rightaway. He said that they do both remaps as well as tuning boxes. Tuning boxes would be from 10K onwards, while a remap would be about 16K, and they would need to keep the vehicle for at least a day.

Before I go to either shop, I would highly appreciate helpful inputs on the matter from folks here. If anyone here has dealt with them in the past, or would like to recommend another place, please comment. Thanks.

As you can see the max torque in P2 mode is 266 nm and the stock is about 225 NM which translates into a good 18 Percent increase over stock. The stock Horse power is 96HP and it gets bumped up 110 HP to P2 Mode translating into 14.6% increase.Overall my friend is very happy with the new experience with the RD box

AFAIK, the Ecosport has only 99 BHP and 205 Nm of torque, and that's after the re-tuning in 2016. Before, it was 91 Bhp and 200 Nm. I don't think the dyno mapping is accurate. It should be showing less torque at the wheels than the stock 200Nm, not more.

Did you contact Code 6 Kochi? I have heard that they have good contacts at local Ford dealerships and warranty won't be an issue. Remap is anyday better than tuning box, Code 6 has remapped many Ford 1.5 diesel cars.

I got the dual channel RD box for Crysta from AT Car modz in 2016. The box performed well on the Crysta. Abraham is also an enthusiast himself.
