At the end of last week they were working on a 4th file as they were aware of the issues.  Would be interesting to know if anyone has that file on their car yet & how it is performing?

Hello,

 

there are new experiences with the Bluefin-Flasher,maybe new diagrams? 
Whats about this 4. file ,what the user "AistairS" said?

I/we are from Luxembourg/Germany and a friend of me bought the Bluefin. He had also these lags on his 1.remap from Bluefin.
After this,he got a second remap, (the newest remap they said).

So he flashed the car,the problem with the lag and " loss of power"  is a lot better,but still there.

So,he made a mail to Bluefin and they answered this (mail is quoted);
" [...]The last remap we provided you with is what we have running on 3 development vehicles here in the UK and several other customers’ cars, without the problems you seem to have. Without seeing a vehicle here with these problems we are unable to carry out any further mapping or diagnosis.[...]"

Now,we dont know what we could do.. maybe the problem that the ecoboosts diffused upboard?

Cause on my Focus RS MK2 ,the Bluefin runs without any problems and my car before the RS,they are no problems too with the Bluefin Flasher.


 

best regards

I had the Mountune MP215 upgrade done on the car last Tuesday.  No problems with lag or power.  Very happy with it.

 

Not heard anything else about bluefin

Are many people having problems with this? Is it worth getting the bluefin or spending more on the mountune kit?

A friend of me recieved a mail from Bluefin last Thursday;

"First of all I must apologise for the delay in my response. We have been working on this problem and with the last remap we provided you, have almost completely eliminated the reported problem with driveability on our development cars here, so I am surprised to learn you are still experiencing problems. However, we have also made some new developments with another of the EcoBoost engines, the Focus ST, and are getting a Fiesta ST back in again on the back of that. If you still have Bluefin and are prepared to wait another week or two we should have something for you very soon to try, if that’s still not satisfactory you would be free to return the unit for refund."

Sorry to bump up an old thread, but thought it better to do that than to start a new one :)

 

Has anyone had a good experience with the Bluefin from Superchips for the 2013 Fiesta ST(2)?

 

I'm looking at doing either the Superchips, or the Mountune. However as Superchips is cheaper and much more easily reversible i'm swaying towards it, providing that it works and doesn't cause me problems haha!

Not sure on the Fiesta but I have had a bluefin installed on my Focus ST for some time now and I'm very happy with it  :)

I've heard a lot of good things about Superchips and their Bluefin system, so I wouldn't usually hold back... However after hearing a few of the issues that people have been experiencing I'm kind of undecided until someone who's had it done can confirm if they have problems/notice a difference haha.

 

Friends of mine have superchips remaps and they are fantastic so I don't doubt the companies reputation or anything.

If they did a Bluefin for the 1.6 diesel Fez I'd have one without second thought.

Saw your post dav,

 

Have they since this post, produced a bluefin for the 1.6 diesel tdci? I saw this...

That's just the standard map, not the one with the bluefin doodad that you can map and un-map the car with :P

This is a remap/ performace map where you have to take the car to a Superchips dealer, to have it remapped  

 

it is a good (re)map with a significant power gain and a big (48nm) torque gain, the power curve is almost perfect and the torque curve is exellent, with a rising caracteristerict  

That's just the standard map, not the one with the bluefin doodad that you can map and un-map the car with :P

The doodad is the Bluefin handset, ( product made by the company Superchips)  that you can buy mail order/ online which you can plug in yourself and load/ unload whenever you wish, it can even often be transferred from one vehicle to another in the 1st year  

 

The standard map usually refers to the map that came with the car (from Ford etc), a remap / performance map is one that makes the engine more powerful/ the car quicker

 

I take it you dont want to loose your warrantee/ need one you can remove - there must be a technical reason Superchips do not supply a Bluefin "DIY" remap - it probably cannot be done that way so that just leaves taking the car in to Superchips (or another remapper) to have it remapped, or fit a tuning box
