K&N filter will probably do nothing, as much as people love to go on about these gains, they do relatively little. Yeah a complete exhaust system may see a decent boost and again a remap on top, but honestly it's all a bit pointless.

The exhaust system I'd imagine would cost a grand if you could find someone to make you the manifold; unless you turbo-charge you'll get very little and have spent a lot. Let's face it by the time you've done all that, you're as powerful as a 1.25, you're noisy and you're going to have to tell Mr. Insurance that you've modified your car a good deal; may as well just buy a 1.4 or 1.6 in that case, probably lower in insurance too that way.

If you have the lower power 1.25, I heard of a company that managed to put on the other 1.25 map, but then again you're still not really gaining much.

Aw sorry! My bad, I totally forgot he had a 1.25 I was meaning those power gains for my 1.6 zetec S haha! And all those things I said are already done to my car when I bought it.. Actually ignore me I'm being totally usuless lmao!

Not very much tbh, just looked at the Bluefin chips and on my mk6.5 zetec s it'd only increase by 9bhp for 250, pointless in my opinion.

or you could just upgrade to a 1.4 or zetec s.... :rolleyes: :D


Been looking at bluefin for a while and even though standard with map is only 9bhp a lot of people are saying with just a K&N air filter it'd be 12-15bhp.. And with that, 4-2-1 branched manifold, sport cat and sporty exhaust you'll be looking at 20-25bhp increase depending on how good the manifold etc was.. So an extra possible 25% increase for only 250? Seems good 😃 :)

Everything you need to get started comes with the kit.
Install the bluefin as an external device on your computer and it all works smoothly.
As you send a copy of your map to superchips for modification the map on your car will show differences from standard due to the system learning.
It wouldn't hurt to email them details of your configuration though.

So how is it you get the copy of your cars map to send ? 😖
