Global remap specialists Superchips has introduced a range of conversions for the two-litre turbodiesel engine used extensively within the VAG range of cars, rated at both 150PS output and 184PS output.
The 150PS common rail version of the engine appears in the Audi A3, A4, A5 and Q3 ranges, the Mk7 VW Golf, the SEAT Leon III and the Skoda Octavia III. The 184PS version, on the other hand, is found in the Audi A3, SEAT Leon, the Skoda Octavia vRS and the Golf 7 GTD.
The Superchips conversion features typical improvements to the engines’ power and torque outputs, with power from the 150PS version increasing by 26bhp at 3096rpm and torque by an impressive 62Nm at 2301rpm, right where it will make the most difference to the car’s driveability.
The 184PS version sees power increase by 32bhp at 4220rpm and torque rises by 59Nm at 2042rpm.

Not only will the remaps give improved low speed tractability, they will also improve overall response and performance. A further benefit is the potential for the owner to see an improvement of up to 7% in fuel economy when compared with a similar driving style.
The remap uses Superchips’ EPC device which, when fitted to the vehicle, optimises engine fuel and turbo boost settings.
The device is fitted to the vehicle by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealers and the price of £399 includes labour and VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ no-quibble seven-day money back guarantee and the device itself is also covered by Superchips’ product warranty*.
