Newer ECU's seen to be coded to block mapping.
Typical Ford, trying to ruin a drivers fun.
Absolutely. Thought it would be a bit easier to get this done. Kinda very annoyed now as I was looking forward to this.
Thats interesting, the Superchips Bluefin claims 141 Hp and thats just with the map,
So you would think the 150Hp we have heard talked about on the 1.6 seems feasable with some sensible (phisical) mods (exhaust/ intercooler) without "going daft" (hybrid turbo, massive injectors, nitrus methanol etc )
By the sounds of it, and going on the reputation of Superchips, 150 bhp is in the feasible range with sensible mods as you mentioned.
I was thinking maybe exhaust and air box might just be enough to give another 10 bhp without going totally mad on the mods? With a bigger intercooler to keep everything ticking over nicely.
I would be very pleased with 150 bhp and a bootful of torque
