Is that a "off the shelf" map or custom tuned?

It is revo stage 2 generic map for ST 225 ...

Might have been dyno as it barely pulled 1/2 degree of timing on dyno and max boost 1.3 bar with ambient temp of 18 deg and intake 23 deg

oh ok. but thats why custom tuning a map is beneficial. Good luck though!

Update:

Recent Dyno at FR&R

Image

Image

Now on 178k KM but having this weird issue lately where the car would just shut down ..

Happened on the highway once and sometimes while turning not sure if this might be battery as it is 2-3 years old :?

She went into limp the other day (throttle non responsive and won't rev up) because of this and struggled to get her running with SPS and Clearing Faults which there wasn't any strange enough, after trying a few settings managed to start again.

Also have this irritating Exhaust/Suspension Rattle at the rear might need to take to Ford/ACT to have a checkup done.

I highly doubt that it is dead battery

I would think it is either a loose/ faulty connector or bad grounding.

Start by cleaning all of your grounding points with a electrical contact cleaner. Go through the wiring of the main connectors and give all of them a good clean as well. Make sure that all of your connectors are properly plugged in.

For the rear rattle check the exhaust hangers and rear sway bar rubbers

Also did My minor service now,they also replaced my Oil and Oil filter.
My fuel consumption also went down about 1-2 l/100km
It always reminds me how important good clean oil is.
