    Default Blue Fin

    Has anyone looked into Bluefin tuning by Thorney? Its been involved with ford for years and now it looks like its available for our VX. Looks a bit like the BSR system where you upload the map yourself and can also revert it back to standard for warranty issues. Looks like its not available for us N/A boys though, not to sure on CDTI but I cant see why its not possible.

    I have the Bluefin on my A3, but it is the Superchips Bluefin (bluefn is a Superchips product), the Thorney version is purely a badge Superchips Bluefin.

    I can't rate it highly enough, the A3 went from 197bhp/207lb/ft up to 257bhp and 274lb/ft. It is easy to use and is very effective.

    Not sure what Thorney are offering it for other than Astra VXR.

    then again, it should be a well judged and properly tested map, so maybe it might help those with DPFs etc
    May "only" be 30bhp but in normal terms (ie not tuning box terms) of modifying that's not too bad a price.

    A proper remap will always be more effective on the open road than a box.

    Could these not be programed to hold any map so it could work on CDTI, 2LT v6's etc. There TV add also states that it has full fault code reader functionality and also free upgrade maps.

    Thorney are a fully approved Vauxhall Service agent, and everything they do comes with the blessings of Vauxhall. I know there map's dont offer the greatest gains you have ever seen, but i wouldnt mind betting in terms of reliability they are probabaly the best around.
