Superchips offering performance ECU remap for latest Ford Focus ST

Performance ECU remap specialist Superchips Ltd. is offering a more dynamic and more menacing Mk3 Focus ST 2.0T. The latest production Ford Focus ST is already considered as dynamic and menacing, thanks to its 2.0-litre direct injection turbocharged Ecoboost engine that provides up to 246bhp of power and allows the hatchback to reach 154mph.

But the specialist’s latest latest product – a Superchips ECU remap for the Focus ST 2.0T -- is set to further improve the hatchback’s performance. Banking on a combination of chassis dyno and road testing, Superchips developed a performance remap for hatchback’s ECU, thereby optimizing boost levels, fuelling and ignition timing on the Ecoboost engine.

This results in a Superchips conversion that boosts power output and enhances response and refinement, but still retains factory failsafe protocols and reliability levels.

Superchips boosts the 1.0-liter engine found on Ford Focus models

Superchips Ltd. is launching another product this year – an ECU remap for the diminutive 1.0-litre, 125 PS (123 bhp) turbocharged Ecoboost Ford Focus that boosts performance significantly. Superchips is widely regarded as the top automotive electronic tuning company in the world. Consumers can get the Superchips ECU remap on the company’s Bluefin ‘Plug-in and go’ DIY programming handset.

With this product, owners of the Focus 1.0-litre Ecoboost would be able to provide a fully reversible performance upgrade at an inexpensive price. The new ‘downsized’ 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine has been praised for being efficient and refined as well as for having a ‘reasonable level of urge.’

But when the units are dressed in the Focus’ 1240 kg bodyshell, it becomes clear that the Superchips remap would make cars more powerful and more responsive as well as enable them to get higher torque.

Superchips upgrades the Abarth 500

The Abarth 500 has the capability of making heads turn wherever it passes in the UK due to its compact and sporty look. The scorpion logo is prominently shown off in the model too, making the vehicle appear even more imposing. It is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that produces 133 bhp. The competition involving hot hatches has always demanded better performances, a challenge that tuning company Superchips Ltd. is willing to meet.

Superchips equipped the 500 with a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that has been given Abarth’s Bosch MED7.9.10 engine management system so that it could offer more power.

After several weeks of heavy rolling road dyno testing and real world assessment, Superchips’ technicians were able to make an ECU remap that merges enhanced performance levels with total reliability. Superchips conducted extensive dyno testing to prove that its new ECU remap for the Abarth 500 boosts power by up to 22 bhp at 5654 rpm. It has recorded gains from the 1368cc FIRE turbocharged engine from only 2000 rpm all the way to the 6500 rpm cut out.

British tuner Superchips has recently presented its phase 2 ECU remap intended for the turbocharged 1.6-litre, 181 bhp engine that will be used to power the R56 MINI Cooper S (built from March 1, 2010 onwards). Amid the rising demand for customization parts for forced-induction hot hatches, Superchips’ in-house engineers were pleased on how the performance can be improved by the Cooper S’s direct injection turbocharged powerplant.

Assessments on the MINI’s Bosch MED 17 ECU, as well as the comprehensive dyno testing and on-road assessment led to the creation of a Superchips ECU remap for the 181 bhp ‘phase 2’ Cooper S that increases power by up to 25 bhp at 5,444 rpm.

The Superchips upgrade is felt throughout the range, with increases from 2,000 rpm to the significant gains at the top of the range. Additional twisting power was gained by the MINI Cooper S R56 as a total of 32 Nm (23 b-ft) were added at 3,765 rpm, with gains from 3,000 to 6,000 rpm.
