I think the cruise control issue has only happened on one fiesta so far. Not sure why it hasnt happened on all 125's with cruise control though

I take it you can just sell these things on in the future once you have sold your car & just reset the Bluefin ?

You have to pay Superchips to reprogram it to the new owners car.

Yes and No.

They need to be sent back to SuperChips for resetting.
Resets are free for 12 months then are nearly the price of a new handset.

Yeah I know. It used to be a small fee for a reset but this changed about 2/3 years ago. It now isn't worth selling or buying secondhand unless your willing to pay to have it reset.

How you guys finding the map after having it for a while? I've got the 100ps version, just wondering how it feels after the map.

Looking at getting my 1.0 100Ps ecoboost remapped using bluefin as i like the ability to remove the map if i have too. I'm wondering about extra stress on the motor. I know its going to affect wear and tear but on what scale? Is the turbo going to go bang in 10,000 miles time after the map? 

 

Whats other peoples experience like of remapping the 100ps engine without other mods? Superchips claim near 140BHP! 

 

Thanks for you help!

The 100ps engine is basically mechanically the same as the 125ps engine,  and can be considered a "restricted" 125ps engine,  

 

so 140 is not that much more, Soperchips are usually fairly "conservative" with their level of tune and can be considered a "mild" tune with good driveability, and longevity (the car should be easy to drive and the engine/ transmission should last well ), in general

Sweet. Think i'll go for it. With a mapped engine, is standard 95 fuel fine?

Does Bluefin affect warranty? I understand a Mountune doesn't...

Theoretically, the car should run fine on the cheapest, lowest octane supermarket fuel, stock or remapped, you might find the car runs better on high octane "performance" fuel though, (typical advantages are smother running, improved throttle response, slightly/ noticably increased power/ depending on the car) switching from one fuel grade to another may require an ECU reset to make the most of the performance/ economy potential or premium fuel (or the money saving potential of budget fuel - the cheapest fuel available is often the best value for money)
