Right guys and girls,

Simple question. I know what each on does to a degree. What i am after is if you have the choice of 2 remaps, one produces more BHP and the other more Torque. They both increase BHP and Torque, just each does one more than the other the following is for the 90PS Fiesta:

Celtic Tuning 120PS and 195Nm Torque
Mountune 100PS but 270Nm Torque

Not sure about other companies as i haven't looked yet but just weighing up options. I feel drawn to the higher Torque options due to giving me more pull through the rev range, question is would it be too much? I am not sure what the stock readings are for mine.

according to blue fin a 2010 fiesta 1.6 is 93 bhp and 205nm standard so don't understand celtic tuning? but i would go for torque as that is in the lower rev band where you are going to drive the most

That is my thinking too. And i would get a Mountune badge. ;) looked at an intercooler Airtec do too. This isn't going well, ha.

I'd go with Mountune,Think of it as boxing, the torque is the weight of the punch the engine can throw, the bhp is the amount of times it can throw that punch
