Benefits of updating IPC??

Post by davetcollection »

Hi All,
Is there any benefit to me updating the
IPC on my MK3.5 Focus 1.0 Automatic?
Currently on BJR update goes up to BJX (Ithink)

Will it actually improve anything, especially things like throttle response, or is it not worth messing with?

TIA

I'm not an expert but IPC stands for Instrument Panel Cluster and I don't see how it will improve throttle response. I would say that updating the PCM will or should do that.

Thanks, yes PCM is on latest level.
I'm just wondering what benefit I would get from updating the IPC

Updating an Facelift IPC will bring no visual benefits.
IPC=Instrument Cluster as already mentioned above.
No new functions are supplied with a newer Software.

So if yout IPC is running well...

... Don't change a running System
