Drivers of Mercedes models using the company’s successful two-litre turbo petrol engine can now enjoy improved performance and thanks to this addition to the Superchips portfolio.
The global ECU remap leader has introduced a conversion which adds to the engine’s already impressive 184PS output when used in the W212 E-Class, as well as other models through the range.
The Superchips remap increases power by 68bhp at 4755rpm and torque by a very impressive 101Nm at 4672rpm.
This combination improves driveability with the additional torque at the lower and middle of the engine’s rev range while the increase in power provides benefits in acceleration for safer overtaking and more relaxed cruising.

The conversion can be carried out by one of Superchips’ highly skilled nationwide dealers, at a cost of £399 including labour and VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.

The latest (2010 onwards) model of the Volkswagen Polo GTI 1.4 TSI offers a great combination of light weight, small size and an economical, 1.4-litre direct injection, petrol turbo / supercharged ‘twincharge’ engine, packing 180PS (178bhp,) making it a pocket rocket very much in the tradition of the iconic original Mk1 Golf GTi.
And as with the classic Golf, the Volkswagen Polo GTI 180PS 1.4 TSI responds well to tuning, particularly in the hands of the performance specialists Superchips Ltd, who are pleased to release a new ECU remap (or ‘chip’) for the Polo GTi which picks up power from just 2500 rpm, culminating in an impressive 27 bhp maximum increase at just 5885 rpm.
Similarly, the Superchips ECU remapped Volkswagen Polo GTI 1.4 TSI produces a healthy torque boost from 2400 rpm upwards, offering a maximum gain of 35Nm at 4315 rpm.
On the road, the Superchips remapped VW Polo GTi 1.4 TSI ‘Twincharge’ is considerably livelier than the standard model, being much more responsive to the throttle and much keener to rev. Combined with a strong mid-range pull thanks to the extra torque on tap, the ‘Superchipped’ Polo GTi is very much the baby hot hatch, capable of outshining much larger machinery.
Priced at £455.00 inclusive of fitting and VAT, the Superchips ECU remap for the Volkswagen Polo GTI 1.4 TSI 180PS is on sale now. Please click on: http://tinyurl.com/7wwqm9z for more details.
