Global ECU remap specialist Superchips has added a third conversion for the Ford Transit, so it now offers performance and economy improvements for every option in the range, with the exception of the 100PS entry-level engine. The new conversion is for the 155PS version of the 2.2-litre TDCi Duratorq turbo diesel engine, found in rear wheel-drive versions of the venerable workhorse.
The latest conversion adds a healthy 33bhp to the engine’s performance at 3963rpm with a 62Nm torque gain right where it is most useful, at 2085rpm, giving the load-hauler far greater pulling power. Not only does peak performance improve, the conversion also means the engine works harder for longer, with its useable rev range extended.
As with all Superchips conversions, another useful benefit is the potential for improvements in fuel economy of up to 7%, when driven in a like-for-like manner.

Like the Superchips conversions for the 125PS and 140PS versions of the same engine, the remap for the 155PS variant can be carried out by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network, at a cost of £359* 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 £365* including VAT, while the Bluefin-enabling typically costs £60 including VAT, although regional variations may apply.
The remap is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty**. For more information or to buy the remap for the Ford Transit 2.2 TDCi 155PS, click the following hyperlink:
