Transit MK8 Tipper 170ps 2019/2020 65mph Speed Limiter Removal

170ps Euro6d (6d-TEMP) Tippers that use the SID212evo engine ECU have a factory limiter set about 65mph, it’s due to what Ford call “Whole Life Testing Protocol” Recent emissions scandals really focused regulators on emissions after delivery is made & it’s calculated that in a year or 3 once engine & tyres are worn etc the emissions on affected models may just go over the prescribed limit. Normally one would hack the engine ECU to kill the limit but because no remapping equipment can access the Continental SID212/212evo engine ECU file yet it’s not yet possible. ( October 2020) “Diagnostically” it’s a no go even for those with online dealer tool access. I’m not 100% if it’s only 170’s but have heard 105ps models are not affected – You can check your ECU type – there is a label on it & its behind the passenger headlamp. If you’ve a SID211 it’s easy to remove any limiter & anything else is not.

Iveco Daily China Fuel Regulator Valve any good ?

Bogdan ( I love that name ) had me remove the immobiliser from his 2005 Euro 3 Daily. It still wouldn’t start. Fuel was getting to the high pressure pump on the engine but no further. He sourced a Chinese 45 Ebay valve & van ran but cut out under 1000rpm. He then sourced a £68 quid genuine one from Coastal Motorhomes & it ran perfectly. So buy Bosch from a good source as the fakes continue to flood the part market.

Part Number may be

MK6 Transit Tacho Removal

Essentially, to get the speedo to read your mileage again once tacho is physically removed , you need to source & fit a bypass loom, available from Henry Ford himself. The part number is 3C1T-10B942-AA & the “finis”code is 4522300. Is the part still available ? if not , just 2 connectors appear to be linked in the grey tacho plug (yellow & white with purple tracer).

Covid-19 Update – July 16th 2020.

Back to normal more or less. If you’re sending an ECU in , please wash it off with at least soap & water. They are water proof, & disinfecting it is easier this end if it arrives clean. If visiting , I disinfect the keys & door handles & steering wheel etc before i start , & again , if they are clean to start with, that would save some time. For a quick answer to any queries please text or whatsapp me on 07956 555 666.

Euro 5 MK7 Transit Overboost

Had a 2012 100ps FWD MK7 in, that would hit 2.6 Bar boost, then go into limp mode, then push the gas twice & its Ok again for a minute. No DTC’s were set. To cut a long & very boring story short, the new turbo was actually recon & the dowel that locates the VNT mechanism into the turbine body was missing & it was mis-aligned. a part of a broken 3.5mm drill bill stepped in a dowel & all was good. Actuator wise, the G number was G32 & this was for a front wheel drive, i’m told the rear wheel drive actuators differ in the arm cam position or sweep., so possibly, a rear wheel drive utilises a different G number.

2000 Iveco Daily Immobiliser Removal

Its a manual process on these, as the full ECU controlled immobilser system was fitted from about 2002.

Hi Martyn

Thanks for your time and help with my 2000 Iveco 2.8.

The issue was resolved by removing the immobiliser and rewiring the stop solenoid.

I will put together some info but in case you get any other enquiries, a couple of quick points.

Removing the immobiliser is really easy with a Dremel tool, cutting disks and grinding head. Took only a few minutes.

The original power to the immobiliser can be utilised to provide power for the stop solenoid without adding a new switch/wire, and continues to work from the ignition.

Again, thanks
