Superchips Ltd., the leading automotive electronic performance specialist, is pleased to announce that it will be supplying the control remapped ECU’s for the new Gaz Shocks BMW Compact Cup.
The series, which is run under the organisational umbrella of the 750MC, is designed to provide close racing with the rear wheel drive E36 BMW Compacts on a build budget of £4,000, thanks to tightly controlled regulations. The base E36 318 Ti Compact was built between 1994 and 2001, using the M44 1.9 16-valve engine.
The Superchips remap has ignition curves modified to increase performance along with fuelling maps, torque limits and the rev limit increased to 7200rpm. The ECU remains road legal for those who want to arrive and drive in their Compact Cup racer, to provide the most flexibility for your car. Diagnostic features of the ECU are still accessible with the correct equipment. These changes optimise the performance across the Compact Cup grid within the series’ strictly controlled limits.
Twelve rounds of the BMW Compact Cup are scheduled for the 2012 season and thus far 20 cars are in build, highlighting the appeal of the series.
“We are honoured to be appointed to this role with the Gaz Shocks Compact Cup,” said Superchips Managing Director, Ian Sandford . “Superchips has a long association with improving the performance of BMW cars so we are delighted to be closely involved. Motorsport presents the ultimate challenge for Superchips, as it requires extremely accurate tailoring of the engine mapping software within fine tolerances.
“It’s a natural extension of Superchips’ ongoing research and development activities, through which we constantly introduce new applications for road-going BMW’s, across petrol, turbo petrol and turbo diesel derivatives.”
