OP, why dont you try R-Tech in Hinckley, Leics as he does custom remaps so can do a map to suit you.

just had a look at websites, and what they say my gain will be from a remap/bluefin.

on a remap i will only get 12 more bhp
and on a bluefin 9 bhp...which is not alot for the money you would be spending.

I don't mean to needlessly bump this thread, but I'm curious about getting a bluefin map for my new focus sport. However, bluefin only have a chip for ones up to 2005 plate. Would a focus 05 map work on my 06 plate sport?

As long as it a Mk2 I don't think there will be a problem.
May I suggest you give them a call.
They're very helpful.

You have proved very helpful again Stoney, cheers :). Is it worth chipping the 1.6 in your opinion? From what I drove of it today, it didn't seem short on power.

Also completely unrelated, but I found it rather interesting how the speedometer went up to 150mph in the Focus Sport. Seems a tad "optimistic" :)

Optimistic? Maybe but we can pretend.
The remap will pretty much eliminate any turbo lag in low revs and get the car up to speed better after junctions etc.

Btw i'm here to help in any way I can with my limited skills. :P

I think with the Focus sport being such a nice car, we don't need to pretend :P. Just think, I could of ended up with a Purgeot 307cc or SportKa (which is actually quite nice, its just too femanine).

Had to laugh though. On the test drive, I had a fiesta driving up my backside with a 'ZSOC' sticker on the windscreen. Put my foot down, and he was soon a small spec in my rear view mirror. Ahhh, the satisfaction :D

Can a bluefin be bought secondhand and then sold on?

I believe so.
I'm pretty sure all you need to do is contact them and they'll sell you the software for a reduced price.
