— Clayton purchased a CP i-FLASH cable & software kit for the Focus RS Mk2 with the level 1 map. With his modifications the car has a CP370 package.
Received the CP i-Flash kit on Monday with Level 1 Mrk2 RS tune.
After a little bit of an issue with the driver for the OBD2 cable as I am using Windows 8 64-bit, tune loaded and ready for some fun.. Big thanks to Jonny for his help in helping me with the driver issue .. 🙂 . As I’m all the way in OZ it was sorted out with some emails and FB chatting but was sorted in about an hour.. (– we have updated the install process now – TFD)
The process was really simple and took no time. I was running a stage 2 tune from another tuner that required an ECU unlock however the i-Flash easily over wrote that tune and the Level 1 CP370 was on and ready to go.
What can I say, the CP tune is just great!!! So much more torque and smoother than the other tune I was running.. Power is delivered in such a linear manner and my first boot full coming out of a roundabout in 3rd has me grinning like an idiot.. 😀
Many thanks to Jonny for making this a great experience and for some fantastic support and service. After running another tune for over 12 months I was a little hesitant to go ahead with this but I am now so glad that I did after driving the car for even this short time all doubts have been blown away by this tune (oh and the power!!!).. 😀
Now to put some TFD stickers on…
I took the car for a run today for abut 300kms.. Some highway driving then back home via some back roads. The RS has always been great on trips but I have to say that it’s even better now after the Level 1 CP370 tune has been loaded. I think it’s mainly down to the addition of the extra torque.. Overtaking is even more effortless even from low revs and the times I did open it up a little, the power delivery is just so smooth and linear and just keeps building ..
For those playing at home the car has the following hardware additions:
Mountune air box with pipercross filter
Airtec stage 1 Intercooler
Autospecicalists large bore hose kit
Mongoose turboback exhaust
Forge recirc valve
Elevate HD boost solenoid
Coming from a stage 2 tune from another tuner, I would highly recommend this tune to anyone that had a stock car or a similar level of mods to mine, as it has improved the drivability of the car considerably IMO…
— Thank you for the great reviews and nice messages Clayton. Keep us updated on your car’s progress. – TFD
As an agent for Collins Performance and Powerchips, we can now map almost any car and other vehicles for improved performance and in many cases, better economy. You can visit us in Oxfordshire or we can offer a mobile service. The list of vehicles is endless and here’s just some of the car manufacturers we can tune:
– Adrian purchased a CP i-FLASH cable & software kit for the Focus ST225 with level 2i for cars with RS injectors. With his modifications its a CP320.
“After thinking about swopping maps for a while and many emails to Jonny for advice,
all of which were answered expeditiously, I finally decided to try out the CP i-Flash, ordered this from Jonny on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday (superior
The instructions provided, both video and written are very simple and easy to
follow which made installation of the new map very straight forward.
I installed the new map and took the car out. After a long drive I noticed that
the ‘big kick’ that I had with my previous map had disappeared, however,
although I thought the car didn’t feel as fast, I couldn’t have been more
mistaken, the car pulls all the way through the rev range and instead of a
massive kick you get constant power.
Although the car is still quick it is also very nice to drive when out with the
family and being driven as ‘family car’. It is very smooth and not as
‘jerky’ as other maps I have used.
Big thanks to Jonny at Track Focus Direct for his excellent customer service
and pleasant and knowledgeable personality, he couldn’t have been more helpful.”
– Thank you for taking the time to send a photo of your car and write the great review Adrian. Enjoy your car! – TFD
I finally took the plunge and went for the CP320 map. As the Collins Performance iFlash has just been launched and TFD are an up and coming Collins Approved Agent, I thought why not take advantage of their iFlash introductory offer… So I did 😛 😆 Put the order in and a few days later, I got a call to say it had arrived 🙂
We loaded up the laptop and Jonny took me through each step. I was amazed at how quickly the map loads on! Once the iFlash is configured to the car and software, it took about 18 seconds to load the level 2 map onto the car compared to the nail biting 4-5mins on my old DS software.
Jonny took my car out for a spin to make sure it all felt strong and as it should… Boy that guy can drive…!!! He then got me back in the driver’s seat and jeez the map is amazing. So progressive and the boost comes in as you want it too. Very linear. Motorway drive home was amazing. Can’t wait to get her on track 🙂 thank you so much TFD!!!!
My iFlash came with Stg1, 2 and 2i (RS injectors). Also has a standard map on there too. From what I can see, it’s got diagnostic features and you can reset your ECU, reset KAM and restore your ECUs memory if something fails whilst uploading maps etc.
