Ford Model : Focus ST 225
Year / MK : 2006
Remap Purchased: Superchips Bluefin
Approximate Cost: £40 (2nd hand) + £176 reset = £216
Power Before Remap: 225 (STD)
Power After Remap: 280ish (rolling roaded at 248 but with faulty boost solenoid valve - not RR since but feels mighty stronger)
MPG Before Remap: 30.8
MPG After Remap: 30.8
Just for the record; I installed the Bluefin on an otherwise standard car and therefore got more boost (3/4 of the guage rather than 1/2 as standard) so felt much fruitier. To go onto Stage 2 map (and as it was summer) I fitted an uprated Airtec Gen3 inercooler. This increased MPG from - at the time - 31 to 34 doing the same runs. Now that the car and I have got used to the extra power, (and having fun) it's settled down at the 30-32 mark agian. The 30.8mpg is the average since I bought the car in October 2011.
I always run on Super Unleaded (Tesco 99) as my ECU has adaptive capability to use the extra RON (and it pops and bangs more - what a child I am...
But then I didn't get the Bluefin to get more MPG
