I phoned them before 9 this morning & explained the situation.  The guy I spoke to hadn't heard anything about it.  He said he would put in a request for the updated remap for me.  Nothing yet. Just wondering is the updated remap you got the same power figures?  Wondering if they had to back it off a bit due to the issue you & I found?

 

I really want to get mine done asap so I can get a dyno run done on it

Hence my first couple of posts! they said they were not aware of any problems and had tested it loads on there own STs..I kept phoning up telling them my problem,spoke to one bloke who was real snotty.Then spoke to someone else the following day,who said he would go through the remap he had sent to my bluefin with a fine tooth comb.. Then that evening i had a text saying "log my bluefin into the pc as a remap is ready to download..

So it took a while for them to send it out to you then?  I am still within my 7 day no quibble return period which I would imagine means from when I activated it last Wednesday.  Can you remember the chap you spoke to who went through the remap with a fine toothcomb & could you PM me any details that could identify you to them so that might speed things along for me?  Thanks :)

I got the second remap from them & put it on.  No more problems with lag or delay.

 

I went to get a rolling road done on the car before & after remap.

Wonder what the max power out of the ST is, wouldn't mind 300bhp or so and I doubt is too hard.

Thats exellent that you got it sorted! its interesting that its a bit lower than the Superchips one - perhaps the Superchips one is reading high?

 

did they give you the wheel horsepower?

I thought the only difference between the superchips & bluefin was that the bluefin is DIY?  No they only gave me the flywheel one that i scanned.  I have emailed Superchips & the reseller a scan of the results & have asked for a refund under the superchips 7 day no quibble guarantee

Your car may possibly be down on power than a difference; how many miles do you have so far?

Hi, the torque increase would be of more interest really. Seems like your power output now is similar to mine...

I only have  7 days to return the bluefin for a refund  if I am not happy with it & don't have time to do another 800 miles before Wednesday :D

The remap should be fine at any mileage, just may explain the lower power than expected that's all. May as well get the refund really if you're not happy, it's a few hundred notes if you risk it and it doesn't pay off.
