Global ECU remap leader Superchips has released two conversions for the venerable Ford Transit, the UK’s most popular light commercial vehicle. Both conversions increase engine performance for enhanced load carrying ability while providing savings thanks to the potential for improved fuel economy.
Superchips has developed conversions for both the 125PS and 140PS versions of the Ford 2.2 TDCi Duratorq Euro5 compliant engine, using Continental SID208 management.
The conversion sees the output of the 125PS version increase by 36bhp at 2516rpm and an impressive 101Nm at 2471rpm while the 140PS version rises by 27bhp at 3235rpm and 59Nm at 2033rpm. The actual torque and power curves for both engines can be seen by clicking the following hyperlinks:

The conversion not only improves performance for more relaxed motoring when conveying large or heavy loads but it also offers the potential for improvements in fuel economy when the vehicle is driven in the same style as before.
The conversion can be carried out by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network, at a cost of £399 including labour and VAT. The remap can also be performed by the owner/operator themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device. However, the vehicle’s ECU must be Bluefin-enabled before this process can take place, which involves a Superchips dealer removing the ECU. This process is not detectable by service agents and the Bluefin conversion costs £399 including VAT, while the Bluefin-enabling typically costs £60 including VAT, although regional variations may apply.
Both conversions are covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
