Had my
for a couple of weeks - still playing and loving it, especially the noise!
Anyway, how far does everyone else turbo guage move? Not that im being a hooligan whilst driving (or driving miss daisy), but mine only seems to move about quarter of the guage? Is this it?

Thanks, John

cheers for the responses/encouragement!!! a remap is defo part of the masterplan for this car, but just not yet...

in the meantime i think im going to have to make a point of driving a bit harder to really 'test' that turbo guage!

mine settles on 1/2 when my foots flat down.

its not been mentioned in the thread but bare in mind that it doesnt do full boost in 1st or 2nd. I have learnt to overtake in 3rd boosts better than dropping to 2nd.

Should try a pumabuild remap only £250 and honestly if drove sensible you will get more miles per gallon which will save you £250 in the long run trust me. Would recommend it 2 as it boosts to 1.2 bar then drops off just below the red to avoid overworking your charger but still plenty of boost

just tried mine and it settles about halfway, so i take it she's stock? very pleased with how it goes at the moment so will chip it when i get bored or the waranty runs out (july) so i take it the chip must change the pressure the wastegate opens? when they are chipped do they make that lovely wastegate chatter noise? hope so!

Mine goes all the way. Has anybody got the RS turbo pod installed that goes to 1.8 Bar. If so how far up does it go on that with a remap.

You don't have to wait for the warranty to run out.

Mountune and Codered are covered by ford warranty.

And Dreamscience is undetectable by the dealer as long as you flash back to standard before taking it in!

Interesting point about 2nd - I have wondered why it seems to be such a poor gear.

keep mine in 3rd a hell of a lot since finding the lack of power in 2nd (tho it torq steers a tad since the Mountune oops!)

Sorry slightly wrong, the actual answer should be:

Mountune Performance upgrades do not effect the original Ford warranty and the
"260ST kit" is the only aftermarket dealer fit product to do this.

Code Red performance upgrades DO effect the original Ford warranty. They do however supply there own warranty.

Superchips performance upgrades DO effect the original Ford warranty. They do however supply there own warranty.

Dreamscience upgrades DO effect the original Ford warranty and CAN be detected if the dealer or field engineer wish to investigate. They normally do not look unless they are instructed to do so by Ford.
