Owners of cars using the 1.8-litre TSI engine from the VAG group can now enjoy significant gains in performance thanks to the latest addition to the portfolio of ECU remaps from global leader, Superchips.
Vehicles from across the VAG brands use the turbocharged petrol engine, such as the Skoda Superb and Octavia, the Audi TT and A3, the Volkswagen Passat and Golf and the SEAT Leon FR flagship model.
Developing 180PS from the factory, the Superchips remap adds a healthy 56bhp at 5873rpm and a very impressive 93Nm torque at 3286rpm. The power increase breathes extra life into the engine for acceleration and performance while the additional torque improves drivability, notably with a dip in the original engine’s curve eliminated by the Superchips remap.
The full power and torque curves can be seen by clicking the following link:
The conversion can be performed by the owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a cost of £416 including VAT*.
With a Bluefin, users don’t need any mechanical or technical skills, simply plug the Bluefin handset into the diagnostic port (connecting to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit) and follow the on-screen instructions.
Alternatively, the remap can be 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 and the cost of the conversion is £399 including VAT and labour.
The conversion is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty**.
