I have PMed him, see if we get a reply

I'm very sorry guys, my e-mail notifications haven't been working, so I hadn't realised there had been replies here.

I'll try and reply to what hasn't been answered, but if there is anything anyone else would like to know, please either ask on here, or give us a call.

your Ebay price is £139.99 delivered

This was a mistake with eBay pricing. We had an offer on our CR Tech 2 product (for Diesel engines) and the Abarth unit ended up getting the price drop too. It is back on eBay at £149.99. As well as this with eBay although the postage is "free", it is just bog standard Royal Mail, whereas through our website it goes Royal Mail Special Delivery, which is an insured, tracked, next day delivery service.

I was wondering if you had any performance figures for the Abarth 124 Spider fitted with your box?
Bhp?
Nm ft-lbs?
0-60 times?

If you have a look at: http://bluesparkautomotive.com/abarth-124-spider we have the power and torque figures available. If you could come and pay us a visit, I could dyno your car and most likely improve on these figures a touch. 

We don't quote 0-60 times, as these are very variable from driver to driver. Ballpark though I would expect 0-60 to drop by around half a second

    Hello Edd, I have a 2017 595 Turismo 165HP and I updated the front with all components of the 180HP Competizione. Brakes, suspension, wheels. I also got an Akrapovic exhaust. The next issue is the power upgrade to at least match the Competizione 180HP. Your ship caught my attention and I have a question before I engage;
    Is it true that if we use anything but ABARTH FLASH TOOL we will lose our warranty?

    Hi all.

    Some of you might remember my posts regarding the Bluespark box that I had purchased for my Series 4 Turismo 165 back in July - August.

    At the time Bluespark listed at their website power figures with the box of 172 bhp / 300 NM for my car.

    To be honest, no matter what setting I tried, I was certain that there was no way the box could have given my car gains of 70 NM (stock figures are quoted at 165 bhp / 230 NM). I even posted at a thread here complaining  about the poor performance of the box on my car. Max gains could not have been more than 15-20NM, I was sure. There was some performance gain but not that impressive.

    Well around 2-3 weeks ago I came across a post on FB where there was a guy who posted a dyno sheet of 192 BHP / 285 NM using the Bluespark box on his Turismo 165. I also checked the Bluespark website and found out that the power figures for the 165 Turismo had been updated to 195 bhp / 300 NM. So I decided to email Bluespark.

    A really professional and stand up guy named Edd replied to all my emails. He explained that there was a version 2 of the maps on the box for the S4 Turismo and offered to update my box to the new map set FREE OF CHARGE if I ever wanted. We exchanged a few more emails where I also asked about the newly advertised 3 channel box for the S4 Competizione which he reassured me I did not need, and for the possibility for a stronger map if I wanted to add a cold air intake and a sports cat on my car.

    Well a week later my box was off the car and on its way back to England to Bluespark. No more than 6 days later (yesterday afternoon) it was back to me updated FREE OF CHARGE, NOT EVEN A CHARGE FOR POSTAGE.

    So first thing this morning it was on the car and off I went to work. Due to traffic I did not get to open up the car but I was sure that there was a different feel to the throttle responce. Come lunch time my itch to properly try the box grew. So I skipped lunch and went for a test drive on a B road near my work. Despite being a very hot day here (29C), I was quite surprised from the performance. This version of the maps feels a lot stronger than the previous one. There is a noticeable power improvement. I have only driven the car 25 miles since the install, but there is definitely an improvement of at least 15 bhp / 30 NM over stock and I am hoping this will improve with more miles in.

    All in all I am really happy with my purchase now, and really glad there are people like Edd in this kind of business.

    Hi there, as with the above post, you can fit our box and achieve power and torque in excess of what you would see on a stock 180 model. When fitting our box, the ECU remains unmodified. Flash values are not changed, so as long as you remove the box before taking it to Abarth for service, you should not have any issue with warranty :)

    Is there any way to send in the box from my 500 to have it reprogrammed for the 124?

    The box has been sitting upstairs since January, seems a shame to waste it!

    Hi Edd
    I have a 135hp 2012 Abarth and have been running your box of tricks for over a year now on it’s middle setting - incredible difference and I love how the car goes. I’m thinking about getting a sports cat and Supersprint exhaust to improve things a bit more - will the box still work ok or will it need a different map to cope with the change of exhaust and cat?
    Cheers!

    Hi Andy,
    The box will work absolutely fine with an exhaust change and sports cat. So long as you are happy to run 99 RON fuel you will be able to get even higher gains by changing to either map D or E.
    Best regards,
    Edd

    Thanks very much Edd - Ialways run Super Unleaded anyway, so that should be fine. Thanks very much for the swift response! Cheers, Andy.

    Hi Edd,

    Is this the same with the 3-channel box for the 180? If using Tesco 99 octane, is a different setting possible too?

    Whilst I think this has been answered elsewhere, I will just clear it up for clarity's sake.

    On the 180 unit I would reccomend leaving the settings as they are. We are getting really awesome results from the stock settings now. Here's an example:

    Just this minute ordered the Tuning box for my 595 Comp, at work for another 2 weeks so something to look forward to when I get home!
    With the discount code this is a bit of a bargain.
