Superchips does the 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec S

Article by Christian A., on August 4, 2011

Superchips Ltd.’s latest Bluefin release is a high performance ECU (engine control unit) remap for the petrol-engined Mk7 120-PS 1.6-liter Ford Fiesta Zetec S. Superchips is one of the most popular providers of Ford tuning products in the UK. Superchips had optimized the settings for the ECU remap through dyno tuning and real world road testing.

As a result, Superchips was able to generate 10 bhp more at 5986 rpm from the Fiesta’s 1.6-litre Ti-VCT twin independent cam timing engine. Torque was also boosted by 13 Nm at 4,390 rpm.

The Superchips conversion achieved practical performance improvements from engine speed of 2,500 rpm. Together with the 6,750 rpm rev limiter, the 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec S is made to be sportier and to offer better response through the rev range.
Amid rising motoring costs, Superchips made sure that its upgrades would work with either 95 or 98 octane fuel. If the vehicle is driven in the same manner as the standard one, the combined fuel economy of the Fiesta Zetec S at 48 mpg (miles per gallon) won’t be affected.

Superchips installed its market-leading Bluefin plug ‘n’ go handset. Because of this, Mk7 Ford Fiesta Zetec S owners are able to easily take pleasure at the boosted performance offered by a Superchips ECU remap. Installation is easy and only takes a few minutes. First, the Bluefin handset has to be plugged into the Fiesta’s OBDII diagnostic port.

Customers would then have to follow the simple instructions on the screen. If the customer ever needs to convert the car back to standard, there’d be no worries as it will be a swift and simple ‘plug and go’ DIY task since the original factory Fiesta Zetec S ECU map settings are stored within the Bluefin handset.

Customers are offered another option as they could go to any of the about 80 Superchips performance centres in the UK so that the remapping process could be done by trained technicians. The Superchips upgrade has a price tag of £249.00 including 20 percent VAT. It could be used by all Mk7 1.6-liter 120 PS Fiesta Zetec S models built from October 1, 2008 onwards.

Superchips is also launching an ECU remap for the 1.0-liter 125-PS (123 bhp) turbocharged Ecoboost-powered Ford Focus. Focus consumers can availed of 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-liter Ecoboost can have a fully reversible performance upgrade at an inexpensive price. With Superchips’ unique Bluefin ECU technology, the added power can be felt by the driver in just minutes, and with a click of a button.
