Bluespark Pro with Boost Control - 2015 Honda CR-V 1.6 I-DTEC 120 ps
After a lot of web browsing I decided on a box rather than a re-map despite all the flak boxes seem to attract. My thoughts were that if a box is "fooling" the ECU to deliver more fuel ( i.e. performance) at certain rpm, isn't that just what a re-map would do anyway. Bluespark answered what queries I had on the preset expected power and torque values so I took the plunge. It did take me a couple of attempts to fit, not that I'm mechanically incompetent, but the rail sensor on the car didn't seem to match the instructions. After getting a lot more light on the engine it became clear that the sensor was 180 degrees out with the release clip at the bottom. A couple of skinned knuckles later all was installed. I wasn't looking for outright power but more bottom end. My previous car was a 150bhp C4 Picasso so I missed the oomph with the Honda. First impressions are very pleasing, the hole in the power below 2000 rpm has gone and it's much more driveable. A higher gear can be held than before on roundabouts and there's less need to drop a gear for overtakes. As far as fuel consumption goes that's an unknown at the moment until we're allowed further afield ( written during lockdown, I'm one of the "shielded" with emphysema). So, basically, despite the naysayers, as far as I'm concerned it does what it says on the tin !!
Bluespark Pro with Boost Control - Honda Civic 1.6 I-DTEC 118bhp
Called into Bluespark Automotive to pick up Bluespark Pro + Boost. The lads offered to fit it there and then. It was done in no time at all and saved me having to do it.
The journey home was a quick 30 minutes and as soon as I pulled away I could feel the car was different, pulled very quick and smooth. I ran the car for a few days then changed the settings to suit my own driving style and love this idea.
It made a big difference I love it! Money well spent
