    Excellent piece of kit it has totally transformed the car I’m running ultima 3 map pulls all the way to the red line I had a bit of trouble with the install and the guys from dreamscience couldn’t be more helpful getting it sorted

    My car had a map in it prior to my ownership. I thought it was pretty quick then. After adding a few bits like intercooler, downpipe, decat, Forge recirc, larger crossover pipe, S60r clutch, single billet flywheel etc. I felt like it needed to be remapped again. I was going to get a custom map, but wanted to be able to change up and down depending on what uprated parts was on there. I’m very sceptical about generic type maps as I have heard some bad things about them. Well, thought I would take a punt anyway.
    Loaded mod c , realised how easy it was to do..literally plug and play.
    Very impressed with mod c. However, curiosity was niggling, so I had to have a go with mod x.
    Good god, what a difference! Completely unleashed the power in that glorious 5 cylinder engine. As there was another option (XRS), I knew that I had to get the RS injectors in there just to see of there was any difference. Well, slap my thigh and call me Betty. The XRS is fantastic. Doesn’t feel as aggressive low down compared to the X, but it feels as though it is relentless through the whole rev range.
    I can see that if i don’t watch the speedo, I could be on a whole heap of trouble with the local constabulary.
    Havent got a clue what the power is now, but it certainly is a lot of fun…. might get an lsd next to try and get that front end to grip properly.
    Great job to all who developed these maps. Well done!

    Just bought imap for my fiesta st 150.I am absolutely delighted with the extra performance.also very good communication with all at dreamscience and very quick delivery.i would highly recommend this will not be disappointed. Paul.

  4. John

    Great product. Great value for money. I have a fairly standard st225, airtec intercooler, airtec plenum + k&n panel filter loaded the performance+ map the car is much more responsive. excellent service from dreamscience kind regards

    Bought during a xmas sale, i thought why not, It seems future proof.

    Obviously i have not tried the performance map…

    Race map was installed on the driveway. i fired her up…. and my smile followed. I could hear the difference on the drive. subtle but there. I drove down the road as usual. Took it easy because im not an asbo fool, and the car seemed gd, No huge difference on a normal drive…. Until i took the revs up and switched the gears… my god.

    Then one day at work i thought lets do this. ds-ultima…………

    Thats not for the commute, it changed the car in to a beast. I could feel myself giggling like a looser. I had people staring at me at every light, while i smiled like a fool. The commute home took 2 hours…. i live 20 mins away…

    All i can say is she now pulls in every gear at every range…

    I would have paid full price twice…. Im so happy


  6. Hamza (verified owner)

    I decided to buy this over other competitors because I had read very good reviews about Dreamscience on the ST forums. Bonus is you can sell them for 300+ unlike a simple one shot tune. It can also read and clear fault codes, best of both worlds!

    I loaded up the performance+ map and didn’t even feel a single difference, was slightly disappointed.
    I then tried race+ and the difference was night day, absolutely amazing. The low down torque and grunt was very aggressive and usually end up with wheel spin if you don’t squeeze into the accelerator.
    I then tried DSCI, again what a difference. A great all rounder map for everyday use and lovely balance of power throughout the rev range.
    I then loaded Mod B+ after feeling power hungry and it was insane to say the least. You would be cruising normally and as soon as you hit 4k rpm that second boost stage kicks in beautifully! It was a different machine at this point. (This also caused my clutch to slip and both driveshafts were knackered).

    I then went onto Mod X after reading countless number of compliments from ST owners online. I’m lost for words at how the car performs with this map, it is flipping brilliant. You do get mild torque steer with this map but It genuinely just makes it more fun to drive, I would say this is the sweet spot for the ST.

    Greatest thing about this map, you feel a night and day difference with every single map apart from performance+ lol.

    Thanks Dreamscience!

  7. Christopher Richards (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit. Recieved a week ago and love the fact it’s quick and easy to use. Definitely glad with the purchase.

  8. edward

    I drive a stock Fiesta ST and thought I’d get a map done during lockdown but wanted something easy to do that doesn’t need all the aftermarket mods to enjoy from the get go. All I can say is I found that with the Stratagems Race99+ map. I mapped the car on my lunch break on the drive in minutes, updated my insurance and took it out on the road. What a beast. I was amazed by the pulling power, the race 99+ map is honestly like driving a new car. An absolute must for any ST180 enthusiast.

  9. Peter

    Very happy with the Stratagem iMap. I currently have the Ultima tune installed on my Mk3.5 Focus ST. The car runs great. So much torque! It’s a joy to drive. I first had an issue installing the Imap to my car, but the guys at Dreamscience are very helpful. The problem was fixed the day after. Great service! Thanks again.

Product Description

Dreamscience Stratagem iMAP. 


The Dreamscience Stratagem iMap™ is the latest and most innovative flash tuning handset brought to you by the tuning wizards at Dreamscience Motorsport. We 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 our 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 Dreamscience Stratagem iMap is to offer a simple plug and play, easy to use, attractive and 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, click the Supported Vehicles tab to view.

All of the Dreamscience tune files on the Stratagem iMap™ have been carefully created at our research centre using our state of the art rolling road, as well as numerous actual road tests on several of each supported vehicle types. All 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 our K06 Hybrid turbo upgrade. We are also able to make edits and custom maps for the other supported vehicles on the iMap. 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.

TUNE FILE DETAILS (Select your Vehicle)

Focus ST225

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from. 

Performance+ (Stage 1)
A good balance of power and economy suited for all fuel types and vehicles which are standard. This is the best map for long journeys. Performance Plus Dyno Graph.

Race+ (Stage 1)
This aggressive tune delivers maximum boost and our signature shove in the back, ideally suited to standard cars or basic mods such as induction or intercooler upgrades, not recommended for use with exhaust mods such as down pipe and de cat, best suited with super unleaded fuel. Race Plus Dyno Graph.

Dsci (Stage 1)
The characteristics of this tune are “Race Plus” but with a more progressive and linear boost delivery building to and holding a higher peak for longer. This map is our customer favourite Stage 1 remap for all round performance – designed for customers running standard or very basic modifications. This map should be ran with fuel that is 97ron or higher. DSCI Dyno Graph.

Mod B (Stage 2)
This tune file is a good entry level Stage 2 designed to work for vehicles running a few bolt on mods such as an upgraded Intercooler, Cold Air Induction Kit, Cat back exhaust system. Mod B has  a characteristic second boost stage at 4000rpm. This map should be ran with 97+ron fuel.  Mod B Dyno Graph.

ModB+ (Stage 2)
An evolution of the tried and tested “ModB”, but with a few new tweaks, increased boost at high rpm and holds boost for longer. This map should is also designed to work for vehicles running a few bolt on mods such as an upgraded Intercooler, Cold Air Induction Kit, Cat back exhaust system. However, this map should be ran with 98+ron fuel. Mod B Plus Dyno Graph.

ModC (Stage 2)
After a year of development, we give you “ModC” with several enhancements above the historic “ModB”. This map comes onto boost very early in the rpm range and manages to hold boost to the red line very well. Ideally suited for cars with Induction, intercooler and full 3″ turbo back exhaust (but can work with the stock down pipe and stock cat). A popular map for track days and dyno days. This map should be ran with 98+ron fuel. Mod C Dyno Graph.

Mod X (Stage 2/3)
The Mod X name has become iconic across the entire ST tuning industry (and for good reason). This is definitely our most popular map which was conceived from the knowledge we gained tuning the RS MK2, we imported several table changes from the RS MK2 calibration into Mod X and created a truly legendary map.

This tune file is only for cars with upgraded induction kit, Stage 2 or above intercooler, 3″ turbo back exhaust system and 98+ron fuel.  Other modifications recommended for this set up are the Forge Actuator and Forge Recirc. This map certainly has the X-Factor!! Mod X Dyno Graph. This map will remove the Mil light generated from an aftermarket exhaust changes and should be ran with stock injectors only [not 440cc or 550cc injectors]

Mod XRS (Stage 3)
This is the pedigree of Mod X but calibrated for the larger Bosch 440cc injectors found in the RS MK2, with modified boost curve and throttle mapping; Mod XRS is the top tune for cars with full bolt on mods and RS injectors – usually making in excess of 320+ Bhp. A Mod XRS vehicle should be running the following set up;

Induction kit
Intercooler (Stage 2 of higher)
3″ Turbo back exhaust system
Forge Actuator
Forge Recirc
Bosch 440cc injectors [not 550cc or stock injectors].
98+ron Fuel
[This map will also remove the Mil light from exhaust upgrades]

Focus ST250 including Face Lift

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Performance+ (Entry Stage 1)
Ideal for standard cars running std 95 octane fuel, this map delivers a good balance of extra power and torque. A customers favourite for commuting or cruising due to the improved economy.

Race (Stage 1)
Ideal for standard cars running std and super unleaded fuel, delivers an increased level of power compared to Performance+. Ideal for spirited driving and every day use alike.

DS-Ultima (Stage 2/1 )
Our optimum tune for all out performance to be run with 99 octane super unleaded fuel only! Best suited for cars with bolt on modifications such as Cold Air Induction, Intercooler and 3″ turbo back exhaust (Sports cat or De cat).

However, this Tune has also undergone rigorous testing and development to ensure it can also to work on a vehicle with standard or basic modifications. When tested on a standard Pre-Face lift car with just a panel filter we saw 287Bhp and 393FtLb of torque as shown in this dyno graph. ST250 DS Ultima Dyno Graph

When this map is teamed up with full bolt modifications such as our Full cold air induction, Intercooler, Turbo back exhaust, Forge Recirc – we achieved just over 300Bhp peak power with even more impressive gains over stock in the mid-range.

Mustang V8 S550

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Race 99
The optimum tune for your V8 Mustang, created in collaboration with the top calibrators from SCT USA the word  leaders in Mustang tuning. This tune is ideally suited for the standard car set up, on our Dyno our std test car running Shell V-Power made 411Bhp & 365FtLb of torque. After flashing the car with the Race 99 tune we made an impressive 442Bhp and 396FtLb. We have ironed out several flat spots, improved throttle response and make gear changes much sharper when punching the throttle. See independent customer testimonial below..

Race 99 Induction
This tune file is based on the Mighty Race 99 map and  has been carefully calibrated to work with the JLT cold air induction kit. When performing our tests on a std car runnng Shell V-Power and the JLT intake only, we made an impressive 452.7Bhp and 410FtLb of torque. This is an addittional 11Bhp and 14FtLb of torque with the cold air filter and revised map.

Race 99 vs Standard Dyno Graph

Mustang Ecoboost

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Race 99
The Ecoboost Mustang certainly looks the part but it does lack that extra grunt which makes it a muscle car. With the Race 99 tune we managed an increase of over 40 Bhp and 70 FtLb of torque which completely transforms a good car into an exciting car. Race 99 is best suited for super unleaded fuel but can be used on regular octane too.

Race 99 Induction
This tune is specifically calibrated for the JLT cold air intake system and gives and even greater power increase due to the direct delivery of unrestricted cold air to the turbo, vital in any high performance application. On our test car we managed to increase our power by 51 Bhp and just over 80FtLb of torque making this thoroughbred a true animal with the induction noise to suit.

DS Ultima

The latest and top tune file currently available for the Mustang EcoBoost. After our huge success in developing tune files 2.3 engine for the Focus RS MK3, We have transferred pivotal information into the development of the 2.3 ecoboost mustang. Using recently found tables, we have been able to extract serious bhp and torque gains, creating a remap worthy of the “DS Ultima” name heritage.  Even more improvements of bhp and torque over the Race 99 at every stage, pick up, mid range and top end power.

Fiesta ST150

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

This tune file is ideally suited to the standard car set up and works with std 95 Octane fuel, if super unleaded fuel is used the map will make more power and offer better economy in the cruise. Usually good for an extra 15Bhp, and 12FtLb of torque with no other modifications. Improved acceleration with the adjustment of the factory torque limiters greatly improved 1st and 2nd gear acceleration and irons out the throttle delay. Race Plus Dyno Graph

This tune file is based on Race+ but has all the ECU torque control and tip in intervention disabled so ideal for track racing. This tune is best suited for standard cars running super unleaded fuel. It produces similar power outputs to Race+ but disables any interference from the ecu relating to torque. A practical feature for track days is the “Track Map” holds the rpm up when changing gears to eliminate delay during rapid acceleration.

Hyper Race+
Our newly created map best suited for 99 Octane super unleaded fuel, and designed for cars running common bolt on mods including Cold Air Induction Kit, 4-2-1 Branch exhaust manifold with full system, Race cat or de cat. This set up with std cams usually makes a proven 185 to 190Bhp, with cams added this usually makes 205 to 215Bhp. This HyperR+ map is truly a customer favorite and always produces excellent reviews. We have a Hyper Race+ (Ph2 cams) map which has been written specifically for the Newman Ph2 cam set up. This can be purchased separately from HERE.

Fiesta ST180

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Race 95
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 FtLb 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. Race 95 Dyno Graph.

Race 99 
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 FtLb 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. Race 99 Dyno Graph.

DS Ultima

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.

Focus RS MK3

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Race 99

This tune file offers a good balance of power and economy and is ideally suited for every day use. Race 99 offers an increase of 60 FtLb of torque and just over 35 Bhp at 3500rpm where the standard car feels very flat. This tune is not about peak power, it’s about improved driveability and performance without exerting the engine or turbo. Peak power is up to 355Bhp at over 6000 rpm and there is never a sense of the power tapering off, it will just keep pulling. Race 99 also boasts better economy so for any long distance trips or commutes while running 99 octanne fuel there is a noticable increase in mpg. If you decide to add an intercooler upgrade and / or cat back exhaust this tune will run perfectly and the extra flow and cooling will simply add to the performance and compliment the map.

Race 99+

Race99+ a great entry level stage 1 remap with a bit more aggression than Race 99.  To run this tune file you can only use 99 Octane fuel like Shell V-Power or Tesco momentum, if you can only get 95 Octane please run the Race99 tune, or buy some octane booster like BOOSTANE. Race99+  sees further improvements in the mid range and at peak power (6000+rpm) we were able to achieve over 370Bhp which was an increase of nearly 40Bhp over our standard car. This is still an aggressive tune but still within safe boundaries and tolerances of the engine and turbo. When creating these tune files we carefully log several hundred parameters to make sure we not only achieve the best performance but maintain safety and reliability throughout, hence our exemplary reputation on our maps. This tune is ideal for track days and group meets as well as spirited driving, it can however be used on a daily basis too. The beauty of the iMap handset is you have a selection of varying performance maps as well as the option to flash back to stock at any time too.

This tune file has evolved from from Race99+ and gives more low down power / torque, holds a flat torque curve in the middle keeping you pinned to your seat and you still get that little bit extra up top! This tune file is only for super unleaded fuel or equivalent to UK 99 octane such as Shell V-Power. Peak power is slightly up on Race99+, the most impressive part on DS-Ultima is the extra 20+ bhp throughout the mid range keeping your acceleration uniform from 2000 rpm to 6000rpm.

DS Ultima 2 

Our first tune designed to run with an upgraded down pipe 3″ with sports cat, plus the addition of a Cold Air Intake. (CAIS) This map is recommended to run with 99octane Shell V power or Tesco Momentum but can also be ran with 97octane fuel. With these modification fitted Our DS-Ultima-2 tune file gave an increase of 26Bhp throughout most of the rev range above 2500rpm and just over 31FtLb of torque more than DS-Ultima.  This map has many built in safety functions which are thermally integrated, the map produces it’s full potential only after the oil temperature is in the normal operating range. The Mil light will not come on for de cat or sports cat and to get best acceleration we recommend Sports mode with the traction turned off.


The latest and greatest stage 1 map Dreamscience have released for the RS. “The map that everyone is talking about”. DS Ultima 2+ really sets the standard for tuning options for the MK3 with nearly 12 months of development to finalize and release to the public. This map has been extensively tested on the Road, Dyno and Track!

This map is ideal for a RS that is Standard, or Stage 1,  or Stage 2. Yes that right, DS Ultima 2+ can be run with standard mods! A Standard RS MK3 can expect to see a substantial mid range increase of up to 45bhp & 80FtLbs Torque. Peak power gains are  subsequently shy of the incredible mid range increase with around 30bhp more than stock (with 99 octane fuel). To help achieve high bhp figures, this map would complimented by a 3″ downpipe, intercooler,  cold air intake, Bigger Boost pipes ran with V Power fuel. This map can also be ran with 97octane fuel. For an independent review of DS Ultima 2+  please see the link: DS Ultima 2+ Review

DS Ultima 3

Dreamscience are delighted to announce the release of our latest tune for the RS MK3. Please welcome the Mighty DS-Ultima 3 to our already comprehensive choice of tunes for your RS. We have been working on this latest tune for several months and are delighted with the overall performance, power output, reliability and most importantly driveability. The vehicle used for the testing was fitted with a Dreamscience Motorsport 3” Down Pipe De Cat, a Velossatech big mouth cold air intake (Velossa Tech) feeding a Dreamscience Motorsport dry charge filter (Panel Filter), stock intercooler and stock cat back running Shell V-Power 99 octane fuel.

The test vehicle reliably and consistently produces around 405Bhp and just over 430FtLb of torque, this map as can be seen from the graph (Dyno Graph) achieves its peak power at 5350 Rpm and holds over 400 Bhp thereafter making it a bit of an animal when racing or making high rpm gear changes. The torque curve has no crazy spike and is controlled as can be seen from the graph we hold over 425Ftlb of torque from 2500 rpm to 4500 rpm with a flat torque curve and the drop off is only slight so the car always feels progressive and like it’s continuously pulling hard! You will notice an over-boost feature with this map when driving that activates above 4500 rpm so you never have the feeling that the car is letting off power, ever! The small humps that can be seen in both the stock map torque curve, and the Ultima 3 torque curve, are a safety feature as we run to a load target / limit same as your stock file, this ensures that under harsh conditions your car will still perform safely and within tolerance.

This Ultima 3 tune must only be run with 99 octane fuel in the UK, 98 Octane in Australia, and ideally 99+ octane in other European countries who have access to higher octane fuels. If you struggle to find a fuel suitable we do offer an octane booster called Boostane (BOOSTane) which won SEMA product of the year 2016 and really does do what it says on the tin. This map is a free upgrade to any existing iMap customers, simply connect to a pc with the cable provided to our updater tool (iMap Updater) and select automatically check for updates, it’s best not to use the handset Wi-Fi option for this update as it may drop out so in all cases use the cable!

Minimum modification requirements for optimum performance are

DS Ultima 3 Dyno Graph

The next big release is our DS-Ultima 3+ (425bhp / 430ftlbs) which utilises the following

  • Forge Re Circ upgrade
  • DS-Big boost pipe kit
  • DS Intercooler

The Ultima 3+ (425bhp / 430ftlbs) bonus map can be purchased HERE 

Enjoy, TeamDS

Focus RS MK1

Below are the tune files programmed into the iMap that you will be able to choose from.

Taking “Race” further. This tune gives rapid boost and our signature shove in the back as your car comes on boost. Our demo RS MK1 made around 212bhp on our dyno as standard. Once we uploaded the Race+ software it consistently made between 245- 250bhp!

A slightly revised version of Race+ but certainly a map not to be underestimated! This tune is considered a high torque map compared to the Track map with a much more punchy delivery, plus with a mid-range increase of up-to 40bhp (with 99ron fuel), it makes overtaking completely effortless with substantial increase of power at every section of the rev range.

This Track ready map boasts a controlled linear torque curve, still offering a healthy increase of power similar to the Race tunes. However, more suited to those with access to 98+ron fuel looking for a track day map – due to its high power but controlled torque and boost to help keep temps down.
