Superchips remapping

Post by cornishtaz » Wed Mar 15, 2017 5:37 pm

Dropped my car off at Superchips this morning for a week of remap development work.

http://www.superchips.co.uk/

While there I asked about the other engines fitted to the K they are looking for anyone that is willing to help them out at a massive discount. Anyone interested please email Jo Berry at jo.berry@superchips.co.uk in your email please mention me Barrie Thomas with the 1.6cdti 136bhp Astra K. They did have a 1.0T Corsa lined up but have been let down so they are definitely interested in a 1.0T.

I'll let you know when I get the car back with the results.

No figures have been mentioned but looking at other map figures I'd have thought 30-35 bhp and 50-60Nm increase, power delivery will be smoother and hopefully last through the rev range and better fuel economy

Had got in touch with Superchips about dropping my 1.6T petrol round to their Local workshop they have up here in Aberdeen but unfortunately they do all their development work down in their main Oxfordshire branch. Bit too much of a trek to do that unfortunately for me. They did say however that they were trying to work with a local Vauxhall dealer to have cars come through to do development that way but I'm not sure if that went through or not.

They did say the local dealership was willing to help, but they don't want go take liberties with the dealership. The reputation of Superchips is worldwide they had someone come over from Sweden for work

Got the car back. The drive home was so much fun happily sat a 70 in 6th floor it and you can feel the torque kick in. Got to report back in a couple of weeks so they can start work on the bluefin device. The power and torque curves follow the original curves perfectly

Power up by 23bhp

Torque up by 51Nm
