Still looking into remapping the focus soon, iv been reading a recent thread about the bluefin superchips, had a quick look up and read about them, they seem to have the same sort of improvements as having the car remapped, perhaps the superchip offering a little less increase.
What advantages do they have over one another? I presume the superchip is easily removable and you can fit and remove yourself.
Cost wise there fairly simular, remap being around £300 and superchip at £400.
Dose the superchip just come with 'pre loaded' map on it that is a general basis for the car it is purchased for? If so it seems fairly simular to having the car remapped at a tuning garage who will only have a general basis map for your car/engine.
Iv also been warned about clutch/gear box issues, I beleive the gear box should be able to take the extra power no problem, but what about the clutch? My cars done just over 80k, is clutch failer prown to be an issue?
One last thing is insurance, do insurance companies tend to penalise one more over the other? Iv read many people saying with superchips etc you can remove them quickly in the event of an accident, but personally I would never take that chance and will be letting my insurance company know whichever I choose. What is the rough increase on your premium when adding either of the two? Or dose it simply vary on the driver/car/person who deals with the call?
Any help would be much appreciated.
