Hi Cuke,
I'm interested on bluefin remap for my 150hp too... but I would like to know if driveability is kept the same even on "normal" travels.

I mean, ecoboost is a quite "conmfortable" engine if droven with light foot, is it the same with the remap?
(In example have you tried traveling on snow, with snow tyres or so, with the new map, is still driveable?)

If you just do a re-mapping you can increase hp and torque but that is likely to be as the result of running richer so mileage will tend to suffer. Also, unless other mods are done you are still going to be limited by the amount of air you can get into the engine so the percentage gains mentioned seem highly dubious to me...

It's likely to be the result of running leaner.

Most turbo engines with factory tunes run very rich at WOT / full boost (10:1 AFR is not uncommon).

Hi, we don't get much snow here and I don't use snow tyres, but when we did on 18" summer tyres whatever the tune the car was ok in loose snow but difficult on compacted iced snow, but the a lot of cars would be like that anyway. Having said that, in normal conditions, the car is much more tractable and easier to drive. I can put it in 5th gear at about 30 mph and drive all day at that...

Hi Brian, I think you are confusing cheap 'piggy back' devices that claim to give better performance with the higher quality remap I have It isn't about throwing more fuel in the engine, it as about changing the whole characteristics of the way the engine performs by altering many of the settings of the ecu. It will change how the power and torque is delivered and at what rpm thus it is more likely to give better fuel consumption than the factory tune. Here http://avontuning.co.uk/technical/ is a fairly good description on how it all works..

Well, to be honest I have no problems with intake air quantity because I fitted a K&N performance kit with an original spare airbox taken directly from the ST version. (with double pipes).

Just with the K&N kit it took a bit of more torque at low rpm, with the airbox then a small amount too...

So, I'm not afraid of having too less air into the engine :P :P

Hi, I always think that the claims made by K&N filters to be dubious. Obviously the engine can breath easier but that doesn't necessarily translate into any increases. In fact, if the filter box is replaced completely with a filter under the bonnet it will be sucking in hot, more dense, air, not a good idea.

Hi, yes I watched that before I purchased my Bluefin so I knew what I was getting...

That should read ... hot, LESS dense air...

And yes, pulling in warmer air can undo any gains made by lower resistance.
