The Dreamscience Stratagem iMap is the latest and most innovative flash tuning handset brought to you by the tuning wizards at Dreamscience Motorsport. Dreamscience have made this all possible by collaborating with one of the world’s largest and most successful Ford Tuning companies SCT who are based in the USA.
This exciting partnership has ensured that we have the very latest device hardware technology, plus an un rivalled resource of combined tuning knowledge and experience, it is no coincidence the Dreamscience tunes files are popular market leaders, and are considered to be the best available, as reported by numerous independent specialist magazine tests. Now that most modern performance Fords are released on a global scale we are able to bring new hardware and tuning files for all the new performance Fords even faster than before.
The concept of the Stratagem iMap is to offer a simple plug and play, easy to use, attractive, yet multi-functional device that has the ability to offer customers a wide range of Dreamscience’s own proven tune files, as well as having the ability to receive custom tune files from Dreamscience dealers worldwide. The new iMap is also a multi vehicle device which comes with tune files for the most popular Performance Fords.
All of the Dreamscience tune files on the Stratagem iMap have been carefully created at the Dreamscience research centre using a state of the art rolling road, as well as numerous actual road tests on several of each supported vehicle types to ensure we deliver the maximum performance from your vehicle, while maintaining the highest standard of safety and reliability. With the iMap you have the ability to flash between the tune files on the device for your chosen car an unlimited number of times, plus you can flash between stock and a tune file an unlimited number of times.
The iMap has the ability to receive custom tune files that can be e-mailed to you, an example of this is for the Focus ST225 Turbo X and Turbo X+ for the K06 Hybrid turbo upgrade. Dreamscience are also able to make edits and custom maps for the other supported vehicles on the iMap and these can be sent via e-mail to you and you add these to your device via pc and the cable provided.
The handset can only work on one vehicle at a time. One handset will work on 5 different vehicles as long as you “return to stock” on the device before choosing to map another vehicle. Each time the handset is used to program a vehicle with a different VIN number to the last, a life will be lost. Once the handset is married to a VIN you can flash between tune files and return to stock an unlimited number of times. Once the handset detects a new VIN, It will then use one life. There are 5 lives in total. Therefore, you can sell the device on and the new keeper can simply plug in and go, you cannot keep a tune file on your car and sell the device on as it will not work. We do advise before sending your vehicle into a garage for service or warranty work you return to stock as there may be updates applied to your car which may delay loading a tune file once returned. Invariably the manufacturers do release calibration updates, when this happens we rapidly test these, then we add an update to our website to ensure your vehicle has continued support.
Available Tune Files
Dreamscience finally release a tuning solution for your ST-180 Fiesta, the Race 95 map as the title suggests is for standard 95 octane fuel and works well on cars that are standard or with partial modifications such as panel filter, cold air induction kit and cat back exhaust. This map offers an increase in torque of over 45 Ft Lb and over 30 Bhp in the mid range and picks the peak power on our test car to 202Bhp and 245FtLb of torque, if you want that extra power we suggest you fill up with V-Power 99 and run the Race 99 tune.
This tune file is based on the Mighty Race 95 map and has been carefully calibrated to work with 99 Octane fuel like Shell V-Power. This map really isn’t for the faint hearted as we have edited the torque limiters in the lower gears, refined the power delivery so the car will pull all the way to the rev limiter. This tune can be used on standard car set up or those with panel filter, induction kits and exhaust modifications including turbo down pipe. Our test car was completely standard with V-Power fuel and consistently ran just over 212Bhp peak and 268 to 272 Ft Lb of torque making this one of the strongest remaps for the otherwise standard car on the market. All tests were done on our 6 month old Mustang 4WD dynamometer in 9 degree ambient temperature. When giving this tune to several test customers they were all blown away to the power delivery all through the revs on the road, a must have for any ST-180 owner.
The Dreamscience Stage 2 remap now signed off and complete. To experience the full fury of this map, we advise having after market modifications fitted such as an intake, full exhaust and inter cooler. This map will remove the mil light so it can run with a race cat or de cat. DS Ultima has been designed to not only improve peak power and torque figures across a dyno graph, but to maximize performance at lower RPM and the mid range. With supporting mods this map made a total of 220bhp and 288Ftlbs of Torque on our dyno.
