Drivers and operators of the fourth generation of the Mitsubishi L200 light commercial model can now enjoy improved performance and potentially, savings in fuel cost thanks to the latest addition from global ECU remap leader Superchips.
Models using the 2.5-litre EURO 5 emissions specification, 4D56 turbodiesel engine, running on Denso management and developing 178PS, can experience significant gains throughout the rev range.
Power is increased by a very healthy 27bhp at 2914rpm while torque increases by a huge 69Nm at 2585rpm, right where it will make the biggest difference.

The shape of the power and torque curves with the Superchips remap mirrors those of the original engine perfectly but shifted upwards, meaning no change to the engine’s characteristics, other than the increased output. The gains in the low to mid range mean that cruising is more relaxed, as is general driving while overtaking and towing will be safer thanks to the additional power available.
The engine is available in the pickup and crew-cab versions of the L200, meaning all operators, whether light commercial or workhorse, can enjoy gains in fuel economy of up to 7% when driven in a comparable manner to pre-conversion.
The conversion is carried out by one of Superchips nationwide dealer network and typically takes around an hour. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their van and return later to collect. The cost of the Mitsubishi L200 remap is £365 including VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
