Having introduced a remap for the 200PS version of the Jaguar XF 2.2 i4 Td last year, global remap leaders Superchips has added a conversion for the smaller sibling, the 163PS version of the same engine. Promising similar excitement to the original, the Superchips remap increases both power and torque, as well as potentially improving fuel economy.
The Superchips remap adds 34bhp to the four cylinder turbodiesel’s output at 3365rpm and a useful 71Nm torque at the same point, 3365rpm. The curves for the remap follow those of the original engine but shifted upwards, particularly from around 2000rpm onwards, meaning the car is stronger in the low speed range while offering improved performance throughout the engine speed range.

In addition to increased performance, drivers can expect to see improvements in fuel consumption of up to 7% when compared with a similar driving style.
The conversion can be applied either by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network or by the owner themselves, using Superchips’ market-leading Bluefin device. The cost of the conversion carried out by a dealer is £365 including labour and VAT while for the Bluefin, the cost is £399 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’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
