Ok, it sounds right, but the feeling with the K&N air kit is that... I didn't check with dyno tests but the car seems to have a little more torque...

Well I also bought the bluefin and I'm waiting the time to do the remap.

Just one question, did you have to send the original map with computer software to superchips BEFORE remap? Or does the bluefin remapped the car at the first connection?

Another question: what age of production is your car ?
I read some changes happened in Ecoboost 1.6 ECUs after July 2011.
I fear they were about anti-OBD-tuning, anyway mine is from february 2011.

Well I auto quote by myself because yesterday I remapped with at least no problems!!

- After connecting to the car the first time the bluefin asked me to connect it to the computer. So it sent the original map to superchips and immediately I received a mail saying there was the remap to download. Which I obviously downloaded. Then I've been able to reconnect to the car and reprogram the ECU with the bluefin map.

- No problem of freeze or hang of the ECU, just a little flaw. During the start of the program process the bord computer said "ENGINE FAULT, REPAIR IMMEDIATELY" and then went to protection mode. But probably it's normal because Bluefin didn't stop working and then rebooted the ECU and finally said "BLUEFIN INSTALLED!"
