World ECU remapping expert Superchips has introduced a conversion for the 130PS version of the 1.6-litre Renault dCi turbodiesel engine. The newest addition to the Superchips range liberates additional power and torque to deliver a more satisfying and relaxed experience for drivers of the brand’s Scenic 3 and Megane 3 models.
Developed in-house on Superchips’ state-of-the-art rolling road, the conversion adds 31bhp at 3029rpm and 73Nm torque at 2842, representing a torque gain of almost 25%. The result is not only more response from the engine but also, improved driveability with the additional torque making driving far more relaxed.
An additional benefit is that compared with a similar driving style, drivers can expect to see a potential improvement in fuel economy of up to 7%.
The conversion for the 1.6dCi engine can either be performed by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealers, at a cost of £320 including labour and VAT or by the owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a cost of £359 including VAT.
With a Bluefin, users don’t need any mechanical or technical skills, it’s quickly and easily installed from the comfort of the driving seat. Simply plug the Bluefin handset into the diagnostic port (connecting to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit) and the Bluefin then uploads new settings to enhance the vehicle’s performance.
The conversion is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty.

Given its long involvement with the marque, it’s no surprise that VW Driver magazine has frequently tested Superchips’ cars over the years. Always an interesting read, VW Driver conducts in-depth acceleration and fuel economy tests the like of which are rarely seen elsewhere amongst the motoring media these days.
Which makes it doubly pleasing that VW Driver’s test on the Superchips modified Mk6 1.6 Golf TDi is noted for its glowing praise. Tested back to back with the standard car, the Superchips modified version lopped an impressive 2 seconds from the 0-60mph time, greatly improved in-gear acceleration and returned a genuine 56mpg during the test.
