    Bluefin Map

    I've had a Bluefin map installed on my 2008 A3 2.0 TDI170 and I must say I'm not that impressed.
    Yes there is extra power but it feels like the engine could give a whole not more.

    Has anyone else had one installed and whats your views?
    Kind of wish I'd gone for a Revo or similar.
    I wonder if Superchips would alter the map if I asked them? Or maybe I should do some modifications to the exhaust?

    Thanks for that.
    Is there anyone in the North-east that can force a DPF re-gen for me?
    Might be worth me getting that done first before I e-mail superchips.

    We find when we do a DPF removal it frees these engines up, it really strangles them. These Siemens ECU's are also a little trickier to map than Bosch, if you just increase the torque limit you won't get a lot extra.
