People know the difference of the power from the ST, to the Zetec S to other trim levels, so you wouldn't really be showing anyone anything new?

Well, looking at the power/ torque graphs (its from Bluefin but shows stock as well) - 

 

Peak power is at about 6k, so best to change up at 6k, changing up at 5.5 would be wasting potential, and revveng it over about 6 would be a waste of time on a stock car or one with a Blufin remap, according to the graph -

 

http://www.mybluefin...25PS.060214.pdf

  

 

Depending on the speed, or what gear you are in you may be wasting time by changing down into too low a gear ie - if you change down to overtake and the car is revving at 5k in 2nd, so you just have 1k to go untill you change into 3rd, if you know what i mean you may have been better changing down  into 3rd - peak torque ius about 3k - so just keep it between 3k and 6k and it should go pretty well   

 

Looking at the graphs the Blufinned ecoboost has a fair bit more torque at 2k than stock, so should pull better from 2k, compared to the stock one that looks like it needs 3k to pull strongly

Just wondering why you rate the ZS better than ST thats all. You are entitled to you opinion like. id be interested to how you think its better though??

That's right cos the ST is obviously the quicker car :)
