    Saw a video of one with SC and it did look good, but I would be going Mountune route just to keep the warranty intact and 375 should be enough, at least for a few years I would think !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Hi Marc I ran a superchips map off a handset I bought from demon tweeks, I installed it and a few miles down the rd the dash lit up and the car told me to get a service and went into a limp mode, this happened twice, I phoned superchips and they sent another map that worked on the car but it spooked me and took it off the car and got a refund, I’ve had a focus st mk3 and put a bluefin on with many other parts and got turbo flutter then checked the recirc valve and it wasn’t opening, I told superchips and they sent a new map to every st, after that the car was great but after the experience with the rs I’m going down the mountune route fitting the filter kit and recirc myself and getting for to put the 375 kit on so I keep my warranty hope that helps,
