  4. Finally Ordered Bluefin For 180bhp Ecoboost

    So ive had the bluefin installed for over a week now along with the new k@n filter fittedand the difference is quite substantial to say the least. Main Changes ive noticed 1st gear is alot better at pulling away strongly, before always felt sluggish and lacked any pull. Strange one prior to bluefin. Mid range is so much better, the torque and instant power pick up now feels to me like a new car. Low down revs pull more smoothly and is more eager. MPG has also improved if driven sensibly, long journeys i am pushing mid 40's on my average trip and before struggled to make 40. Basically it feels like having a new car, yes its only 20bhp claimed on the bluefin but its what it does with that 20bhp and extra torque which makes it a much better drive. I would recommend this bluefin remap to anyone with these ecoboost engines as im loving the upgrade to my 1.6 and its probably the best upgrade ive done and it took 20 mins to do.
  5. Ive today finally cracked and brought the superchips bluefin ecu remap. Cost £330 and also came with a free k&n filter too, which i thought was a good deal as i wanted up upgrade the filter. it states around 20 extra horses and extra torque too. has anyone else bluefin'ed and with what results. Brought the item from demon tweeks Should arrive on thursday
  6. Spark Plugs....

    Does anyone know what the standard plugs the 1.6 ecoboost petrol model uses. I was wondering if they come stock with the normal ford copper plugs or came with uprated iridium plugs Cheers
  7. Which Phone Holder to Use mk3 Focus

    Hi all I am looking at purchasing a new phone holder for my focus as i currently try and use a KENU airframe, which was great on my previous car a Honda Civic but doesnt quite fit well on my air vents in thefocus, mainly because the vent slats are vertical and the damn holder wont support my iphone 6 securely. Anyone on here using anything different with a good degree of sucess. Would prefer to not use a window mounted holder Thanks in advance

  9. Tips to clean weather strips on roof

    Thanks for the responses, managed to wash the car today, think im gonna tackle the tough grime on the next wash. I need to clay the car asap too as white is a lovely colour but it shows up every blemish and mark known to man.
  10. Tips to clean weather strips on roof

    Hi all I'm looking to do a full clean on my car today with a clay polish and wax, if the weather holds up. My question is that on the roof of my focus where the plastic trims run from the back to the front where the water drains, there is moss and green crap caught under the strips that i want to shift off the paintwork. Whats the best way to tackle this. Will using a brush scratch the paintwork, or is there a better tip to do this

  12. Guide to do Snorkel Delete

  13. Finally Upgraded Head Unit to Sony

    yes it remembered my iphone 6 too. voice control and bluetooth 100% worked for me, i lost no features i had before
  14. Finally Upgraded Head Unit to Sony

    Yes exactly, screen and main unit i matched, the sony fascia itself i think was different but was told it didnt matter with that, all central locking and hazard lights work still. Defo worth the effort to upgrade
  15. Finally Upgraded Head Unit to Sony

    Got it from a breakers off ebay, the fascia is immaculate, no scratches or scuffs. My next job is to swap the instrument cluster, but im concerned about getting mileage correctedfor the new cluster.
