Do they do a quiet version?


Spoken to them, they will do the resonated for an extra £100, so £495 fitted for the resonated

No worries, if you do find a better deal, if you wouldn't mind, would you let me know...

Oh yeah of course, was going to say this to the guy who had his mate timing him, chuck him out, the 1.0 goes so much better with just one person driving.

 

Mazda for instance tested the RX8 times on a downhill slope in sterile conditions, making the specs a lot better than they ever were.

 

Manufactuers even put the car on slicks, tape up the grills, remove the mirrors and disconnect the alternator all in the same of boosting performance and testing figures.

 

iirc for 0-60 times you need your tyres nice and flat ( almost ) flabby tyres and much harder to spin, saw the results years ago with a R5 GTT @ 330BHP, they found dropping the pressure to around 15 PSI they never spun and produced much better times.

Thats not a bad deal tbh, Demons are around £550 last I checked, but I'd say wait for Piper to make one, Milltek aren't that great from experience, Piper are better quality all round, a lot of Clio owners had issues with Milltek welds failing and poor fitment, Piper are also generally cheaper.

Scorpion despite bad opinion aren't bad and will no doubt be the cheapest once they bring one out.

I would chuck him out but wouldn't fancy timing it myself with a stopwatch, don't want to use an app cause they're not that reliable. I know they do that with the MPG figures too, literally disconnect everything they can, lift up the bonnet with a fan feeding cool air, the lot.

I'm not sure what the obsession is with 0-60 times

For me it was just to compare the standard car against the bluefin.

Not been on here in a while but thought I would up date you guys on the 100ps bluefin remap.

 

In Jan it was my car that was used for developing the remap for this little engine and got the remap free and just had to pay cost for the handset. The map was fine and only a few little things u notice from the original apart from the extra power.

 

1. Fuel eco stayed the same for me which i think is great for the gains.

2. low down driveability is much better also. just pulls strongly from the get go.

3. and this is the only issue I find really. Its like every now and then but quite hard to replicate i find. When moving at speed and put my foot down and even if i change down a gear its like theres turbo lag or something going on. Nothing happejns for about 2 seconds and just ever so slightly jerks the car and then the power comes in. Bit of a strange one.

 

Any way last weekend to prep the car for little service as its done a few miles already this year i went to reload my original map back from the bluefin to the car. It went through the process fine all progress bars showed and got to the end and its asked me to turn ignition off and unplug the device.

So when i tried to start the car it would not start and comes up with every malfunction on the screen from immobiliser to power steering. So i tried the bluefin again and it just comes up with an error E001 and is unable to read PCM and there was not way of sorting this as superchips are closed at the weekend. We had to get the AA take us home and they dropped the car off at our ford dealer and i messaged superchips with the details.

 

Monday i had a call from superchips and snet the map back to my bluefin and put the handset to a recovery mode which should have sorted the issue and let me remap it again as it looked like the bluefin deleted the map on the device.

So due to working a late shift i tried the bluefin on tuesday morning and it still did the same thing and so ford had to check it out and they found the ECU was totaly wiped and had nothing on it and of course was not covered on warranty.

 

Slightly lost trust in the device now and superchips to be honest. I tried to see if i can claim it from the superchips warranty as it looks to me its obviously an issue with the bluefin as its worked on the car before and it went through the progress bars and things fine but superchips would not cover it. So just a heads up and keep it in mind. if you dont have a second car to get you to work and back if your bluefin fails at the weekend then maybe look into something else.....

Thank's for the heads up Dominic, was thinking of getting one for my Zs Ecoboost, why go back to original map for a service? I can't see the point, am I missing the point to do this.
Cheers, Roger.

Just as its something not covered under warranty and there is a chance they would do an ecu update you see so pluging the bluefin in would save the tuned map onto ready to reload when the car was sorted.
