It does yes. It is the bottom finis code on the list. It is shown on the diagram and is a short velocity stack.

I have seen the ford racing part but its a bit expensive to say the least.  Im sure it could be altered to fit but I cant see it making that much of a difference. Certainly not over £200 difference lol

I have a bluefin remap on my Zetec S 1.5 ecoboost and according to Superchips it has upped the BHP from 150 to 197. Plus I have fitted the much larger K&N air filter giving a small amount of BHP around 5.So I should have around 202 BHP in total,this power seems to come in more effectively in the higher rev range.Must say I am pleased with the extra performance from the upgrade,also tried both grades of unleaded fuel and did not see any real noticable difference in performance.
This is my third bluefin unit,which has been used on other ford focus cars I have owned,they all achieved noticable power improvements.Very simple to upgrade from the hand held unit,and I like the fact it stores the cars original ecu software settings in the memory of the unit.Expect to pay around £300 for this unit.

Cannot wait until mine gets delivered now.

Obviously with my car being the 1.0 EcoBoost (125PS) it's won't be as amazing but i'm looking forward to it all the same :D

Focus is a bit heavier but Superchips state a 145-150bhp so we'll see :D

Had my bluefin fitted for a while now and although i do like the 3rd gear acceleration for overtaking i'm not really as happy as i thought i would be.

Superchips state a benefit in fuel economy too but even if i drive it normally to and from work i'm only getting 40mpg whereas before i was getting 50mpg.
