Hi Edd,

Quick question. Will the bluespark box I currently have for my Euro 5 series 3 abarth work on the Euro 6 series 4 abarth? Or will it need a new map adding

Thanks

Jordan

    Hi Jordan,
    Whilst I very much doubt they have changed anything very significant compared with the 140 model, I don't think we have ever sold a unit for a 145 model. We could ideally do with having a look at the car. Is there any chance that you could come and pay us a visit?

    Best Regards,
    Edd

    Had a couple of hours with Edd this morning as I thought I had an issue with my boost gauge from purchase. Edd did various diagnostics to the extent of even removing a boost gauge from his own car and fitting it to mine to confirm what boost we were getting. After numerous test runs and trials Edd established we were holding good boost pressure and then did me a tweaked custom map to give me a lot more low down torque. Edd also showed me some of the new stuff he was developing and talked about what is coming in the future. Wow. What a guy, knows his stuff inside out and customer service second to none. If your looking for a more "useable" tune get your order in. Forget the rest and fit the best, fit a Bluespark box and get yourself looked after nothing is too much trouble.
    Edd you sir are a genius and a top bloke to boot.
    Thanks for your time today.

    Hi Edd, I'm looking at buying one of these in a few weeks once my car has been mapped to 160 by the dealership (I've been driving a 140 for months before they'd admit it), £140 for another 12-25bhp is a bargain really.
    Anyway, one thing putting me off is that the boost gauge won't read correctly. I presume you do a lot more than just scale the signal by X so I can't just multiply it in my head.

    Have you got any plans for a unit that has an output that feeds direct into the gauge with the actual reading from the MAP sensor? I'm presuming the OE gauge doesn't take the same signal but it's probably not rocket surgery to reverse engineer.
    I'd probably end up making a little box to do the same myself eventually but I thought it would be worth asking because it's surely crossed your mind at some point?

    Hi Dave,
    You are correct that the boost gauge will not take the same signal as the tuning box. The boost gauge will be fed a signal from the ECU directly. I haven't looked into it, but I imagine it will actually be quite a difficult signal to change (its probably a CAN signal).

    The thing is that getting in and out of lots of Abarths, what I notice is that the accuracy of the stock gauges is massively inconsistent. Sometimes the gauge will match the values shown on diagnostic equipment, sometimes it will vary by as much as 0.2 Bar either way. 

    Ultimately there are probably two solutions:

    - Solution 1: Accept that the boost gauge is not particularly accurate in the first place, definitely not right with the box installed and not to pay it too much attention.

    - Solution 2: Replace it with a nice accurate aftermarket gauge. This would probably be cheaper, and almost certainly would be better than making a unit to recieve signal and drive the existing gauge. 

    Best regards,
    Edd

    Hi Edd,

    I just bought a 2011 A500c with 140BHP and I would like to put in the bluespark, but I'm not sure did the car did any remap yet?
    How can I find it out?

    Hi there,
    If you are curious as to whether the car has been remapped you could take it to a rolling road dyno and check?

    Is there anyway that I can check it myself? I think the checking fee will cost more than bluespark :-[

    You can always try comparing your 0-60 times against stock 0-60 times? or use a diagnostic tool and see what boost pressure you are making?
