    I'd look at other factors
    Low mpg on the bc below 20mpg on average is a sign
    (Or a very heavy right foot)
    Slow rev drop when not in gear
    Slow throttle response
    Hestitance to boost (lagging)
    Slight misfires and rough running
    Just to name a few

    She’s always missed a beat on idel after cold start, even after plugs and coils now she drops two slight miss. Mpg on this ecu 18-19 on the old ecu 20-21. Pulls fine no hesitation, but when cold you can feel like how do explain it a pulse up down up down, when you drive her(like a stretched chain on bike)my mind one bank has stretched once at temp and the expansion factor evens out !!! Been like that for years

    Had an 06 mondeo st220 3.0ltr before lovely car just the front brakes where crap rear bumper kept dropping as uk specific didn’t have foam supports and when it rained would leak water in through speaker shroud on front doors, the best bit the Duartec engine been around for years with well known flaw the cam that drives water pump would wear causing tapping noise Ford would fob you off saying don’t know anything about it yet been known for years on web so sold it back to another ford dealership with soaked p/s floor, warpped discs for a car for ‘it’ in doors!!! When she could drive.
