The global ECU remap leader, Superchips, has released a conversion for the high-performance VXR version of the Vauxhall Corsa ‘E’. The remap adds significant performance to the already impressive hot hatch, improving power and torque throughout.
Leaving the factory with 207PS, the Euro6-compliant turbocharged petrol engine, using a Delco ECU, sees an impressive increase in power of 28bhp at 5361rpm. Along with this is a very significant gain in torque of 43Nm at 4072rpm.
The result is greatly improved performance and acceleration, matching the XVR ethos. However, the gains in torque also mean that the car is a far more relaxed proposition when driving in normal road-going conditions, thanks to the low-speed improvements.

The remap can be performed by the owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a cost of £299* 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 conversion can be carried out by one of Superchips’ highly skilled nationwide dealers, at a cost of £365 including labour and VAT. The conversion typically takes less than an hour, since the process is 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.
