Well i got my map sensor and fitted it after work.did as has been said on here.disconnected the minus on battery.fitted sensor.did the ignition only and waited for the lights to go out.started car and went for a spin.car feels a lot more fluid through acceleration and certainly pulls much better.even the fuel consumption seems to be better.now here's the thing,i have the racechip box and was worried it may not take to the update.tell ymu what guys when i ahem ,boot it the torque and turbo gauges look as though they're going to smash through the top of the gauge display. Thought it was fast before but gotta say that it really is a beast now.the power comes on at 2000 rpm and does'nt stop.will continue to the red line if i let it. So the sensor update is a thumbs up from me. So to our American cousin i say,you sir are a gentleman! Cheers Noodle!

I'm very glad your car is operating as is was meant to be.. just wish Kia would step up and do a proper recall and get his done on there dime..
 
I seems the next big change has to do with the factory turbo.. was gate control.. ill do a write up on it soon..
 
TLDR.. the factory waste gate arm can be adjusted to allow the turbo to spool faster and hold the boost better.. all you need are 2 spanners to adjust the locking nuts to the full out position. seems kia didn't properly adjust the waste gate arm to its full pivot point..

I'm very happy with mine. Definitely made the car less hesitant on part throttle.
Mine is pretty much focus st fast now. Very happy for a 1.6

I went for this one, good price and free delivery, arrived quickly too.

Fitted it yesterday and took it for a little spin around the houses, first impressions are good! Felt smoother and power felt more instant. I will have a bit more of a play today when I can get a bit more speed up out of town.
