The latest addition to the range of ECU remaps from global leader Superchips is for the Vauxhall Vivaro B CDTi and Renault Trafic III dCi light commercial vans, using the 120PS, 1.6-litre turbodiesel Euro5 engine.
The Superchips remap offers drivers the traditional benefits of significant increases in both power and torque, with the former increasing by 34bhp at 3659rpm. However, most impressive is the gain in torque, of 85Nm at 1905rpm.
While power gains are always beneficial, it is this huge increase in torque that will make the biggest difference to those carrying large or heavy loads. The Superchips remap increases the overall torque but also widens the torque curve, meaning more torque is available for more of the engine’s rev range than before, improve load-carrying ability and driveability enormously.
The full power and torque curves can be seen by clicking the following link:
In addition to large improvements in performance and driveability, operators and drivers can also expect to see improvements in fuel economy of up to 7%, compared with a similar driving style.
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 £320 including labour and VAT. The conversion typically takes less than an hour and customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect.
