its more or less the same thing, they are pre written maps, the difference with bluefin is , you dont need a dealer to come round your house with a laptop and re-programe the ecu, you get the device to do it yourself, also with bluefin you can set it back to factory settings at no extra cost, a dealer would need to come back out to do the same thing and charge you for it.
i had mine done via a dealer (celtic tuning)
so basicly if my ECU needs to be programed to itsbasic setting ,i mean if sudenly my ECU has lost its basic brogram this BUEFIN can program it?so it works as the FORD dealrships programing computers too?i mean is not just for remaping but for reprograming too?Thanks
Bluefin all the way
I can use Bluefin as an ECU updater?no needing to go to FORD dealer and spend 300euros just for an update...
Looking at the power/ torque curves-
i would say there is a significant gain from 2k to peak power (just over 4k) the power curve is a "good shape" with a steep rise within the band with no dips/ and it does not "level off" - not much point in revving it over 4.1k, and you need to keep it above 2k to "shift" so a typical turbo-diesel "narrow power-band" again - on the torque curce not much below 2k (pre, or post remap) the 37Nm is a big "headline" figure, but more significant is the extra torque at 4k
So overall well worthwhile with a significant gain - and you will notice a difference "all round"
According to Superchips the mail-order Bluefin is not available for post 2010 Focus 1.6 TDCIs, and you would have to take the car to a Superchips dealer - you would need to confirm this with them, but the cost may be £320, rather than £399.99
