I'm sure that there are many of us with an interest in seeing how you get on and what results you get from the re-chip.

As a retired Insurance man (with no particular love for the industry) it's probably already factored in to your scenario that a) your warranty may be affected and B) your insurers might repudiate any claim if you have not declared the modification.

Boring I know but just be careful!

Hi, from superchips there is a standard 1 year, or 30,000 miles warranty against the remap causing any mechanical problems and I will declare it to my car insurers of course. The bonus with a Bluefin is that I can take off the remap anytime I like and put it back on again. I will keep you all informed when I get around to performing the remap.

Hi, connected up the Bluefin and load the original ecu map to it and have sent it off to superchips to work their magic. It is as easy as this video Now the wait...

Hi, the remap has been uploaded to my ecu, all went fine aside from when there was a couple of reboots of the ecu, heart in mouth. The car starts fine though but I can't drive it until tomorrow, I will up nice and early and I hope it isn't pee'ing it down like it is now.

Hi, behind the small fold down storage compartment below the headlamps switch. You have to squeeze the sides to fully drop it down.

What cost was the bluefin, what power figures are they giving, I had mountune on my focus st and thought of going same way with new foci, mountune mp200 so 200bhp and 320nm torque so will pull like my old st did when it was standard just loose the top speed with 24bhp less. Mountune reckon the map doesn't increase mpg but nor does it decrease, and is covered by ford full warranty which for me is best way as my car in only nearly 3 months old. Also get a new intercooler and high flow air box but at £950 plus fitting is steap but if the torque figures are better than bluefin it's worth it.

Hi, is your the 180ps engine? If so it'll go higher than the remap I got for the 150 here is the power curve for mine http://www.mybluefin...oBoost150PS.pdf and for the 180 here http://www.mybluefin...oBoost182PS.pdf the cost was £360p&p next day delivery. I think that the Mountune can go higher because they change more. I've only run the car to work since I had the remap, certainly there acceleration is there and I can hold it in a lower gear up hill, this I think I will improve on mpg. I really need to take the car on a protracted run and hope to this weekend.

Has anyone seen the figures they managed to get from the MK3 ST?!?!

From 247bhp to 298bhp!!!! and 360Nm to 455!!!!! absolutely insane considering thats just a remap. comes close the MK2 RS spec.

Just imagine the torque steer though without the mechanical diff :/

Yeah see bluefin can give 12bhp more than mountune but its not about the bhp it's the torque that's getting you going when passing ppl. I'm also looking into an exhaust system for mine which should come in the new year.
