Hi every one just a quick question does anyone know if the turbo on a 1.4 works all the time or does it kick in at certain revs thanks

Our 1.4t auto 4x4 can be driven quiet sedately, but kick down, turbo engages and you are back in the seat.

Yes I agree with a Wellinever. It's much quicker than my previous diesel 1.7 manual. In fact for an auto/4x4 combination it's awsome in my opinion. I love it.

Has anyone looked into remapping your 1.4 turbo.. I'm debating wether to do it yet or wait until warranty runs out. Making it 175bhp is very tempting

Don't bother with maps on the 1.4t because it will lead to all sorts of trouble in the future -- these engines are not designed to be driven like it's been stolen they are not vxr's which had internal engine tweeks such as forged pistons with oil spray jets and other accossiated mods -- playing about with the boost and fuelling on a 1.4t will in the end prove to be a rather expensive exercise indeed -- don't even think about it 1.4 has a diddy turbo and actuator which are not up the job of producing safe upgrades when it's mapped and tuners will tell you everything will be ok but can't guarantee it -- get a vxr not a remapped mokka

Thanks for letting me know didn't really think about the long term.. these remap company's only mention the benefits and never anything negative. Why spoil a good car eh

I have had my 2014 1.4t Auto remap dome and it defo makes it drive better.
no longer feel it struggles to over take etc
Much better drive and touch wood 18k miles in no issues

We had two 1.4t auto's both from new and never experienced any struggle to overtake, in fact quite the opposite as mentioned in above post #2.
