Owners and operators of the latest version of Ford’s venerable load-carrier, the Transit, can have their cake and eat it with the latest addition to the range from engine ECU remap specialist, Superchips.
The remap for the 100PS version of the EURO5 compliant 2.2-litre TDCi Duratorq engine builds on what is already an impressive output. The engine power climbs by 42bhp at 2867rpm while torque increases by 101Nm at 2729rpm.

Not only do the peak gains look impressive, the curves demonstrate huge benefits in power and more importantly, torque – crucial to getting the most from the engine and giving the Transit even more pulling power for heavy loads.
And perhaps even more important is the potential saving in fuel costs. Compared with a like-for-like driving style, operators can expect to see gains in fuel economy of up to 7% from the Superchips remap.
The conversion can be applied either by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network or by the owner themselves, using Superchips’ market-leading Bluefin device. The cost of the conversion carried out by a dealer is £365 including labour and VAT.
The remap can also be performed by the owner 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 £359 including VAT, while the Bluefin-enabling typically costs £60 including VAT, although regional variations may apply.
With a Bluefin, users don’t need any mechanical or technical skills, it’s quickly and easily installed from the comfort of the driving seat. Simply plug the Bluefin handset into the diagnostic port (connecting to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit) and the Bluefin then uploads new settings to enhance the vehicle’s performance.
The conversion is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
