Hi Alex


According to the brochure dated september 14 (latest focus brochure)


The Focus with the 2 litre diesel  (150ps) with manual gearbox has a top speed of 130 mph.  Estate the same


The Focus st with the 185ps diesel engine has a top speed of 135 mph (both estate and hatch))


so apparently 30ps equals a 5 mph 


Bluefin gives an increase of 39 bhp (39.5ps)


Making the focus st tdci 222ps 


How can the bluefin increase not affect top speed.


it does not make any sense at all.

here is the transcript of the email


Hi James.


Thanks for your reply.


Yes, but the car ran out of puff before it hit the limiter, so there was no need to raise it.


Kind regards,

Dear James,

Thank you for your enquiry. 

It was our experience that the car runs out of power before it reaches
any sort of speed limit. 

Kind regards,

Superchips/Bluefin claim the 185ps st tdci runs out of puff before it gets to its claimed top speed,


I enquired if the speed limiter can be deactivated and they still claim after a remap it will not pass 135 mph hmmmm
