I’m asking myself this because I never use my speedo, always the MPH in my Escort Max360 and I remember that before 2-3 weeks when during WOT it shifted from 2-3 it would be 62,64 mph. Recently it has been at 58-59.

Any ideas?

Car has been running great, only thing I can think of is I hit the limiter once or twice (while highway cruising against other louder cars) and it cut off the power as expected (italian tune up lol, unintentional but auto tranny is not DCT fast) and that during start up once it sounded like it was struggling for a second.

It turned on, but was the first time I heard that. Sort of like a wheezing maybe? Right before it turned on.


Otherwise, the car runs great and I ran it HARD today. I’ll do more tests later on with my boost gauge to confirm that it is reaching 24 peak PSI.

2017 Abarth 124 Spider (Red /w Heritage Stripe) and the proper Record Monza Exhaust.

Mods: Turbo Blanket, GFB DV+, Paddle Shifter Extensions, Tork Tune Stage 1.
