Global ECU remap leader Superchips has released two conversions for the latest engines from Renault. Both the highly efficient 1.2-litre TCe turbocharged petrol engine and the 1.5-litre, 90PS dCi turbo diesel engines can now benefit from additional performance, thanks to Superchips remaps.
The TCe engine has been hailed as Renault’s flagship petrol engine. A host of features have been included to improve efficiency and economy including stop/start technology and regenerative braking, to generate energy during braking.
The Superchips remap for the TCe engine, used in the Mk3 Clio, Wind, Modus and Twingo models, sees power increase by 18bhp at 5150rpm and torque rise by an impressive 28Nm at 3090rpm. The new power and torque curves follow the originals but with the added benefit of smoothing out slight dips in the original curves.

The second Renault engine to receive the Superchips treatment is the 90PS version of the 1.5-litre dCi engine, used in the Captur and Mk4 Clio models. Again, Superchips’ work centres on releasing additional performance while at the same time, offering potential gains in fuel economy when driven in the same manner.
The remapped dCi engine sees power increase by 21bhp at 3147rpm while torque grows by a significant 58Nm at 2211rpm, making the car far more driveable with this additional lower speed performance.

Both conversions, for the TCe and the dCi engines, can be fitted by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network or by the owner, using the company’s Bluefin device. The cost is £320 including VAT and labour for dealer fitting or £323 including VAT for supply of the Bluefin device, which forms part of this year’s autumn promotion and enjoying a 10% discount. Both conversions are covered by Superchips industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
