Hello,

I am looking at getting my Ford Focus II Zetec S (2.0 136BHP) ECU remapped. Has anyone had it done on the same engine? What positives or negatives did you find? Increased BHP, MPG etc?

I am living in the North West, can anyone recommend a reputable company to provide the remap? Looking on the internet there are so many companies with varying price ranges from 150-300+.

Any help or advice is appreciated!

LeBretom.

Cheers mate, most sites reckon I'll gain around 26BHP. It's just knowing who to go with and how much to pay...

Sorry for the late reply bud! I ended up doing more research into it and have gone with the Bluefin device from superchips. Seemed a little extra but the reviews on customer service etc are great. There is also that option to revert back should I need to... Thanks for the help though mate!

I have the same 2.0 tdci Zetec s and have the bluefin map. I would definitely recommend it if you have not made any other performance mods. It gets me an extra 5mpg ish if I take it steady and much better performance. It has smoothed the power out so it keeps pulling right through the revs.

I am actually going to be selling mine soon as I have just made a few other mods and am having a new exhaust put on in the new year and a remap to take the mods into account rather than the generic bluefin.

I did the Bluefin remap a couple of days ago. I didn't set my expectations too high but the remap blew them out of the window. As FLORYFOCUS says it just keeps pulling through the rev range in each gear. I noticed considerable difference in 3rd and 4th! I haven't monitored the MPG too much but yes it seems to be about 5MPG difference.

The Bluefin remap couldn't be easier to do yourself. They send you the device you download your ECU map onto it, upload it to the Bluefin app on the computer and they send you the modified map. Upload it to your car and your done. It cost me 330 in total. You've always got that security of loading the original map back onto the ECU if necessary.

I have the most radically modified Mondeo TDDI 2.0L i am aware of and i have had Superchips modify their stock map and upload the revised map/s  to my Bluefin handset, (more details in my build thread) The bluefin can easily cope with the usual decat, sports exhaust and bigger intercooler - they don't do an electronic DPF delete, though

 

Superchips will do this free-of-charge upto 12 months after purchase, they may also allow you to change it to other cars  

 

The point is Superchips Bluefin is not so "generic" and a "bespoke" remap may not be so "custom" but just a generic map

So a custom remap is better then a generic remap
