A number of confirmed cases on focus rs owners forum of warranty claims refused due to detected maps. One related to a mountune m400. Unless those owners are telling porkies….. I don’t think I need to experience everything personally to know it’s so. Otherwise we would know bugger all. And I wasn’t saying you shouldnt do it – just that you know the risk.
The thing is, Ford ONLY warrant the FPM375 map. If your engine goes pop/steam/missfire/headgasket or worse, and you have been using anything other than that and Ford find out, don’t come on here crying and moaning. if you are ‘hard’ enough to fit an unwarranted map, man up when it all goes wrong eh? I just bet everyone crawls back in their shells and try’s to pretend their car has always been stock and expect Ford to swallow it…
Live by the sword, die by the sword. or something like that.
Sweet Jesus I didn’t wanna start a riot on here lol I’ve bought it now so it’s down to me on the warranty side, I was reading the small print on the instructions that came with it and it state on there “this will leave NO trace in the ecu once removed” their words not mine!
No you go for it mate it’ll be a brilliant map and I’d go for it myself if it wasn’t for warranty but traces are always left that’s why ford get techs up to check the parameters with the engine failures cause it’s at high cost to ford so they check for any maps but there’s lots of people who have been caught out but they fought their corner and cause it’s a serious issue atm ford are having to carry out the work anyway under warranty they just void it after the works been done. That’s what’s happened to people on the other forum anyway
Dreamscience is a awesome piece of kit and it does what it says on the tin. To add bollocks in about warranty claims is off topic we all bloody know and has been covered about a million times on here about montune is the only warranty approved stuff. But there is other option and dreamscience is one of them. Personally hate the brand montune and apple.
Dreamscience imap, milltek decat/downpipe and airtec stage 2 air intake.
