Yes they have dyno figures to prove that to necessary customers .
What's the power gain of your EcoSport post remap? I was just saying that 135 BHP post remap from stock 90 HP looks suspicious and could be done with very aggressive fueling. I do not want to comment about EGT and other associated risks, if done that way. Most of the good tuning firms claim 115-120 BHP for 90 HP EcoSport, which looks realistic.

This particular tuner in question has claimed 130 HP for 75 HP Ritz few years back .

Well I am not that keen on how much increase is there on the numbers .
As I mentioned they have the dyno figures to prove what they offer for their customers which has been shared to several customers who did the remap with them. I have ran more than 25K post remap and I am happy with the same just like others whom they referred earlier from which I took the feedback before remap.

Just out of curiosity; do they do a dyno run of the car before and after they load the map? Or are they just showing sample charts of dyno runs done on same car models?

Interesting!!

So they would provide dyno figures if the customer asks for it? I was not shown any dyno graphs when I went to them for Grand I10 remap. I doubt if they test the remap for each car on dyno and then release it to public like how big tuning firms do.

Naren's question is straightforward. Do you mean to say that you don't even know the numbers of your re-map?? Could you let us know why did you opt for the re-map? I mean, what's was your objective since you say you don't bother about the numbers?

My answer was also straightforward. Objective was to get better drivability rather than numbers .

The high power 1.5L TDCi on the 2017 Fiesta makes 118bhp. I wonder what all hardware changes have been made to that engine.

And this fella is coming all the way from US. I was on a global hunt over the internet for the same.

Have bought some more Christmas goodies for the Ford. Will update here once I have them on hand.

And the left most parking sensor on the car is not working. The sensitivity is very very low and works only when an object is too close to the car. And that too is very intermittent. The 4 sensors on the Fiesta works independently off each other and the other three are fine. Either that sensor has gone kaput or its a connection issue.

The first time this happened, I almost bumped the left rear into a wall. Thankfully, I was glanced over the left ORVM and could stop in time. These toys do make us a bit lazy over time. So, I now have one more thing to take care of for next service.

How is that horn different from the Hella Black pearl sold in India? Is this Ford specific i.e. the connector is Ford type?

I got one last week for the Corolla and that was universal connector.

I thought of ordering one more for the Ecosport but the connector was different.

Yes, its bespoke for Ford. That yellow sticker has Ford written on it for easy identification.

And check the connector below. It looks the same as the stock horn on the Fiesta. Hope it fits. It was very reasonable at USD 20. So took a chance.

And that's the right reason why someone should do a remap. What matters really is the shape of the torque curve, not the peak numbers. You might want to try and get that info and then compare it with the stock state of tune.
