Drivers of vehicles in the VAG group model ranges can now enjoy greatly improved performance thanks to the latest addition to the range of remaps from global leader, Superchips.
The 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, using Bosch management, is used across several marques and model ranges within the VAG group, including the Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Golf, Passat and Polo, the Audi A1, A3 and Q3 and the SEAT Leon Mk3.
The factory output is a respectable 150PS yet the Superchips remap increases this even further. In fact, power rises by 29bhp at 3754rpm while torque grows by a very impressive 62Nm at 2694rpm.
Not only do the power and torque curves for the Superchips remap demonstrate the increases in both but they show a smoother torque curve when the engine reaches its peak output. The engine also holds on to its power for longer at the top of the speed range.

The result is a car with greatly-improved acceleration but combined with superior driveability, thanks to the gains in torque low down in the rev range.
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 remap is £365 including VAT and labour and is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty.*
