Hi Mal thanks for the pic your motor looks very nice as usual! What's the spec engine wise and have you got any mods?
Hello Peter, it's a 2.0 EcoBoost with full automatic box (torque converter instead of DSG)
It was used as the development car for the Bluefin remap which took two visits and 6 days to complete coding on the new Ford cyclone firmware.
It is fitted with a CP-e Intercooler which was the first to be exported to the UK from its manufacturing plant in Maryland USA.
It also has the Eibach Pro-Line lowered springs fitted which had to be ordered in from Germany, at some point I will fit the Bilstein shocks but they were not available when springs originally fitted.
It also has a Turbosmart Billeted blow off valve (BOV) to replace the standard plastic & rubber Ford version.
It goes very well indeed and the pickup is very rapid when you hit the loud pedal, the torque steer is much more prominent after the Bluefin but controllable when you know it's coming.
MPG wise I get around 26mpg which isn't bad for such a large bus with a recorded 0-60 timed run averaging 6.2secs.
I had hoped to replace the very restrictive down pipe but all the tosspot UK manufacturers aren't interested in such a low volume product, hence I may have to import once again from the USA. But even this can be hit & miss as differences between the Fusion and Mondeo's.
After doing all the dash modifications using ForScan I have to say it's probably the best Mondeo I have owned and something I enjoy driving, I do miss the mpg of the oil burners and the torque rush in 3rd gear but my EcoBoost pulls all the way to 3 figures with no loss of boost so I'm happy.
I Installed a Blackvue 650s 2 channel dashcam at the weekend and very impressed with the setup and iPhone integration.
I was going to upload a photo but the website software keeps telling even after editing and resizing several times that the file is to large..
