m235 SMARTflash - Cylinder Deactivation Calibration [Mk8 Fiesta ST]

The 1.5-litre Dragon engine fitted to the Mk8 Fiesta ST utilises a VDE (Variable Displacement Engine) setup which seamlessly deactivates one cylinder when cruising, or on coast-down to help with increasing fuel-efficiency and reducing Co2 output.

However, eagle-eared owners can pick up the somewhat strange noise this activation causes and in particular, when replacing or upgrading the exhaust system, this audible change becomes very apparent (and not in a good way)!

To support our future exhaust product releases and for m235 owners that have already fitted aftermarket exhaust products, our revised m235 calibration option allows existing m235 customers with modified exhaust systems to de-activate the VDE and prevent this noise from occurring.

Please specify your vehicle VIN in the notes section when checking out. and if the email used to make this purchase is different to the one used for your original m235 purchase, please also supply that to ensure the industrialised calibration to support your vehicle is created and sent to you correctly.

The file emailed to you can then be opened via the SMARTflash app and installed to your ecu, as is the case with all previous calibration updates.

Please note: you will require an m235 SMARTlash upgrade / app to be able to install this companion calibration.

    Nice 'Normal' Mode

    A nice upgrade to switch off "two cylinder" mode when in 'Normal' mode. Easy to install using the SMARTflash phone app.
