Drivers of Mercedes models using the 2.2-litre twin turbocharged diesel engine can now enjoy significant performance and economy gains, thanks to the latest addition to the range of ECU remaps from Superchips.
Used in both the C-Class and E-Class ranges from 2009 onwards, the 220 CDI BluEFFICIENCY engine leaves the factory with a healthy 168bhp and 400Nm of torque.
However, extensive development by Superchips on its rolling road has resulted in an additional 30bhp at 4308rpm and 50Nm torque at 3039rpm, bringing the figures up to almost 200bhp and 450Nm. These translate to gains of 18% in power and 12.5% in torque.
Even more impressive than the outright figures are how the improved power and torque curves reflect the originals. The Superchips remap follows the original curves perfectly, allowing the engine to maintain its reputation for low speed performance with gains from 2000rpm onwards.

The net result offers improved performance throughout the engine range, giving more relaxed motorway cruising and a greater margin of safety for overtaking.
An additional benefit of the remap is improved fuel economy, with drivers expected to achieve a gain of up to 7% against a comparable driving style.
The remap is carried out by any of Superchips dealers via the car’s on-board diagnostic socket, meaning the engine ECU remains untouched. The work is expected to take around one hour and like all Superchips conversions, the car is fully tested before being handed back to the owner.
The cost of the conversion for the 220CDI is £365 including installation and VAT and is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 30,000-mile/12-month warranty*. Click the following hyperlink to purchase the remap. http://www.superchips.co.uk/search?make=22&fueltype=2&model=82&variant=2764
