I wonder if they are any good I had a look and they say a extra 10 bhp. so with the j1 kit and mountune exhaust that could be close to 140 bhp for 754 with out postage so that's less than 600 less than mountune and you can fit all that stuf your self

My personal opinion, not worth it.

Quick pros and cons:

+ Price
- Will void the warranty
- Possible increase in the insurance cost

I do agree myself on On the warranty part but it will be simmilar cost in insurance if you go for the mountune so it's really only the saving vs warinty. But if there was a fault you could take the stuff of the superchip is ment to be a plug in so you could unplug it and put the standard air box back on and the exhaust is mountune anyway.

They do one for the 90 (or 88 as they call it) pre-DPF engine - no good for me :(

oaft! Although thats on the superchips site, itt not on the bluefin site/... dunno why! But Considering Ford block the ecu from being remapped through the port that bluefin use, I'm surprised they're saying it can be done.

I've only ever heard of the tdci mk7 being remApped by removing the ecu and plugging it into a special mchine connected by the pins direct then refitting the ecu to the car. RStuning can do it.

I'm gonna contact superchips asap and find out.

Unfortunately, that's very much a pipe dream.

Evo tested their Zetec S they had on long term test, think it was 9.7 and the Mountune was 8.9 that they tested as well. Have figures at home, will put them up later. A lot of money to go from slow, to nearly as slow. ;)
