Superchips, the world leader in performance ECU remapping, is pleased to announce a range of important Bluefin ‘Plug-in and go’ releases designed to enhance the performance of the latest Ford 1.6-litre Ecoboost turbo petrol engine models, including the Focus, Galaxy, C-Max, Grand C-Max, Mondeo and S-Max.
Superchips has a consistent and successful history of boosting the performance of turbocharged petrol Ford cars, starting with the Escort RS S1 models in the 1980’s. For 2012 Superchips leverages this experience with its latest Bluefin ‘Plug-in and go’ launches, designed to deliver affordable driving excitement for the latest generation of low-emission ‘global’ Ford turbo petrol powerplants.
Covering 150PS (148bhp,) 160PS (158 bhp) and 182PS (178bhp) variants of the range, Superchips technicians have managed to extract impressive, reliable power gains from Ford’s direct injection, turbocharged 1596cc Ecoboost engine, whilst retaining high levels of fuel economy and driveability.
Developed exclusively at Superchips’ Buckingham technical centre and tested extensively on the firm’s in-house chassis dynomometer and in real world driving conditions, Superchips achieves the following performance gains across the three 1.6-litre Ecoboost variants:-
i) 150PS 1.6-litre Ford Ecoboost C-Max, Grand C-Max and Focus models
Superchips’ Bluefin gains 30bhp @ 5341rpm and 51Nm @ 1923rpm
ii) 160PS 1.6-litre Ford Ecoboost Galaxy, S-Max and Mondeo models
Superchips’ Bluefin gains 34bhp @ 5341rpm and 59Nm @ 1923rpm
iii) 182PS 1.6-litre Ford Ecoboost used in Ford Focus
Superchips’s Bluefin gains 20bhp @ 3760rpm and 44Nm @ 1923rpm
From behind the wheel, the Superchips Bluefin upgrade delivers a wide spread of extra torque and power across all three models, whilst driveability and throttle response are also noticeably improved.
Performance gains start from just 1500rpm and continue to the 6500rpm cut-out, offering Ford Ecoboost drivers the chance to enjoy the satisfaction of additional urge for overtaking, fast cruising, towing, load carrying, or for just adding excitement to their daily drive!
Installing the Superchips’ ECU remap onto the wide range of Ford Ecoboost models is a speedy, reliable and fully reversible task, thanks to Superchips’ market leading Bluefin ‘Plug-in and Go’ handset.
No technical skills are required as Superchips’ customers plug the Bluefin handset into these Ford Ecoboost models’ OBDII diagnostic port and then follow the simple on-screen instructions, a process which takes a matter of minutes.
As part of this process, the original factory Ford Ecoboost ECU map settings are stored within the Bluefin handset for future use, which means converting the car back to standard is a swift and simple ‘Plug-in and Go’ DIY task.
