Global ECU remap leader Superchips has launched another conversion for the Ford turbocharged petrol engine, the EcoBoost. It now offers a significant performance upgrade for models using the 1.0-litre version of the engine as fitted in the latest M8 Fiesta
The Euro6-specification engine leaves the factory with either 100PS, 125PS or 140PS and the Superchips remap can be applied to all manual equipped versions, resulting in almost the same peak power for all three variants. For example, the 140PS variant pictured above outside our HQ during development gains an extra 24BHP and 52Nm.
The full power and torque curves can be seen by clicking the following link:
In addition to outright gains in both power and torque, the curves show that the Superchips remap provides the biggest increase in the mid-RPM range, right where it’s most useful. Not only will the car now be more driveable with its additional torque, it will also feel smoother on the road.
The conversion can be carried out by owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a normal RRP 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 remap is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty.*
