The latest addition to the range of ECU remaps from global leader Superchips allows drivers of Audi A6 and A7 models using the BiTDi twin-turbocharged engines to gain significant increases in performance and potentially, fuel economy.
The performance of the 320PS, three-litre engine, running on Bosch management, is increased by 59bhp at 3009rpm and a very impressive 139Nm torque at the same engine speed.
The full power and torque curves can be seen by clicking the following link:
The power and torque curves follow the originals perfectly but shifted significantly higher to reflect the improvements in both values. The remapped torque curve also shows a flattening of an inherent dip in the trace on the original engine, maintaining peak torque for longer.
In fact, the remapped engine shows greater torque than the original peak value virtually throughout the entire speed range.
In addition to the gains in performance and driveability this offers the large Audi models, drivers can also expect to see improvements of up to 7% in fuel economy, when compared with a similar pre-conversion driving style. Further, the electronic speed limiter can be removed for cars destined for motorsport use.
The conversion can be carried out by 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, it can be performed by one of Superchips’ highly skilled nationwide dealers, at a cost of £399 including labour and VAT.
The conversion is covered by Superchips’ market-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty.**
