That's not a lot of power. I'm not aware of ones that make that little, are you sure that's the right number?

My 2017 SFE makes a fair amount and is great fun. Mine was in the 120 hp and 120 ft/lbs range from the factory and makes more now as I feed it pure 94 octane 'good ol premium' Chevron champagne. Some people have come up with numbers like 130 hp and 135 ft/lbs on premium fed 1 litre ecoboost motors. Any turbo will benefit as the computer will pull power if it sees a knock. It will pull time, boost and fool with the valves to make that not happen. Not having that happen makes it smoothly responsive from 1600 RPM and beastly when beaten. ;)

It may depend on the year but people seem get into the 170 hp range without blowing it up, with a chip. Of course intake and outflow are critical here.

.
74kw is the 100PS version of the 1.0.

Depending on your location and whether you are MAP or MAF tuned, a standard remap will deliver between 140-155PS. You will only really need a high flow filter to achieve that, but high flow silicone hoses and a larger intercooler will aid delivery of the power increase.

I have the 125PS version running a Bluefin stage 1 remap and the complete Mountune Stage 2 hardware. The engine is very reliable if you check the coolant regularly, and change the oil on schedule using only the recommended oil. A proper OBD2 temperature gauge will ensure you can pick overheating before it’s too late.

Be careful with the remapping. Some of them remove the torque limiter on 1 and 2 gear which means you'll destroy your gearbox synchros easily. Fiesta gearbox isn't very durable, but driven sensibly it's ok. Factory map has torque limited on 1 and 2 gear.
