World leaders in ECU remapping technology, Superchips, has announced a further addition to its collection of products for the VAG line-up. Its latest addition is for the 1.4TSI ACT engine, used in ranges from Volkswagen, Skoda, SEAT and Audi.
Using Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) and developing 140PS, the turbocharged direct injection engine is used in the VW Golf 7 and Polo 5, as well as the Skoda Octavia Mk3, the SEAT Leon Mk3 and Ibiza Mk4 and the Audi A1 and A3 Mk3.
The Superchips remap adds a significant 34bhp at 5627rpm and 63Nm torque at 2562rpm. The shape of the curves follows the outline of the original engines but shifted up significantly, from approximately 2200rpm.
Not only will this increase the low-to-mid range performance and with it, improve everyday driveability but also the top end power is increased, resulting in greatly-improved acceleration and driver enjoyment.

The conversion is carried out by one of Superchips nationwide dealer network and typically takes less than an hour, since the process is now carried out using the vehicle’s OBDII (On Board Diagnostics) port. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect.
The cost of the VAG ACT engine remap is £365 including VAT and labour. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
