sorry to bring up an old thread, but after reading it all I have ordered the new sensor for my gt, but I was wondering whoever mentioned the sportage knows where the map sensor is on a UK 2011 1.7 sportage.
Thanks

You could ask the supplier. Or better still ask in the sportage section for your year car.

can you feel any difference in the 33hp?
I choose the Racechip primarily for the potential Torque increase. I don't really drive at the top of the rev range, I like a bit more grunt lower down and to be honest, compared to my previous Fiesta ST and the wife's 200 bhp Astra K, it was lacking. It does now feel more powerful and driveable. I was barely breaking 30 mpg because I was driving it so hard to make up for the lack of performance. Now I find myself in a higher gear and so am seeing improved fuel economy. Over the last few weekends as lock down has eased we've been been going from North Kent to Seaford, across the Ashdown Forest and via Lewes, bit of motorway, fast A roads and country lanes, so good mix and getting 35 mpg typically. In addition to the chip I did add a Jetex panel filter, used Tesco 99 Momnetum fuel and had some new Pilot 3 tyres on the front. Probably put it on a rolling road and there's no difference but I am pleased with it.

I splashed out £6 on a used i40 sensor and have to agree it has made a difference. Much smoother pulling away. Can't match 43 mpg though. I'm back to 32 mpg on supermarket petrol.

Best I ever got with my 2014 non-tech GT was a true (fill-up before and after on same pump) of 40 mpg on long summer trip with light winds.
Current Stinger gives 42 mpg on similar journey but it's the 2 litre and not the V6!
