Owners and drivers of Ford models fitted with the latest version of the Duratorq turbodiesel engine and the marque’s double-clutch automatic transmission, the Powershift, can now enjoy improved performance and potentially, fuel economy, thanks a new ECU remap from global leader Superchips.
The 210PS version of the engine, fitted to the Galaxy, S-Max, Mondeo and Edge ranges and using Delphi management, can now see its output increase by 33bhp at 4079rpm and a significant 82Nm torque at 1723rpm, thanks to the latest Superchips remap.
The full power and torque curves can be seen by clicking the following link:
Not only does power and torque increase significantly, the way in which they are delivered also improves. The torque curve, for example, is flatter and the Superchips conversion eliminates a large dip in the curve as the engine approaches the mid-range.
In addition to the improvements in performance, drivers can also expect to see gains of up to 7% in fuel economy with the remap, compared with a similar pre-conversion driving style.
The conversion can be carried out by owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a cost of £399 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 £365 including labour and VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ market-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty.*
