Global ECU remap specialist Superchips recently announced a series of remaps for the Volkswagen Golf 7 range. In particular, the 220PS version of the Golf 7 GTI saw gains of 30bhp and 51Nm of torque from the turbocharged petrol engine.
However, the Superchips engineers have revisited the GTI and have announced two further conversions for this application. The actual increases in power and torque for Stage 1 are now 59bhp at 5657rpm and 97Nm torque at 3742rpm.
In addition, the shape of the power and torque curves flattens out a notable dip in the original engine’s delivery, improving performance and driveability hugely.
The company has also developed a Stage 2 conversion, for cars which feature additional mechanical modifications, such as high flow air filters, performance exhausts and high flow catalytic converters.
In this case, the gains are 78bhp at 5831rpm and 115Nm at 3089, again flattening the drop in the original curves.

Stage 2 can also include the removal of the speed limiter for motorsport use and an increase of the rev limit to 7150rpm on manual transmission cars.
The company has also developed a new conversion for the Golf 7 1.6TDi, increasing power by 41bhp at 3476rpm and torque, 84Nm at 3328rpm. On the turbodiesel engine, owners can also expect to see improvements in fuel efficiency of up to 7% when compared in a like-for-like manner.

The conversions are carried out by one of Superchips nationwide dealer network and typically take around an hour. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect.
The cost of each remap is £365 including VAT and labour while the speed limit and rev limit adjustments cost £50 inclusive. The conversions are covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
