Buckingham, United Kingdom, 8th November 2010

Superchips Ltd, the sole official tuning partner of Volkswagen Racing UK since the year 2000, is pleased to launch a new ECU remap that will maximise the performance of the 140 PS variants of the 1.4 TSI Golf GT, GT Sport and Sport versions of the MK5 Golf, which use the unique, 1390cc, direct injection, turbo / supercharged engine,

Superchips has a long track record of enhancing the performance of VW products with thoroughly developed, well proven, performance orientated ECU remaps, but for the 1.4 TSI application the end results achieved are, even for Superchips high standards, quite exceptional.

Superchips technicians have carefully analysed the car’s Bosch MED17 ECU to enable the firm to pinpoint where power increases could be extracted without compromising the driveability, reliability and fuel economy of the 1.4 TSI engined Golf MKV.

Following the installation of the Superchips ECU remap, the 1.4 TSI (140) MKV VW Golf really comes alive, gaining up to 42 bhp at 5303 rpm. Similarly, the Superchips ECU remap noticeably improves the torque output throughout the rev range on the 1.4 TSI (140) MKV VW Golf, increasing it by 56 Nm at 4877 rpm.

Pleasingly, given the relaxed nature of the 1.4 TSI’s turbo / supercharged powerplant, the Superchips ECU remap delivers a driveable, progressive increase in performance, with gains throughout the rev range from just 2200 rpm.

In today’s climate of ever increasing fuel prices, VW Golf MKV 1.4 TSI (140) owners can also be reassured that the Superchips ECU remap delivers a minimal fuel consumption penalty. Indeed, if driven in a ‘like for like’ manner with the standard car, VW Golf MKV 1.4 TSI drivers will experience no fuel consumption penalty, despite the extra performance. This is thanks to the extra efficiencies realised by the optimised nature of the Superchips remap.

Golf MKV TSI owners have two choices for installing the Superchips ECU remap. Firstly, they can visit one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres, where trained technicians can undertake the remapping procedure.

Alternatively most variants of the MkV Golf TSI can use Superchips market leading Bluefin ‘Plug and go’ handset, which simply plugs into the car’s OBDII diagnostics port, a procedure that takes a matter of minutes. Owners should consult the Superchips website for more details of the Bluefin option.

With both available installation options, customers can be assured the Superchips conversion is covered by a full Customer Service Guarantee and an industry-leading 12 month / 30,000 supplementary full vehicle warranty.*

Suitable for all Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI (140) models produced between 2004-2008, the Superchips ECU remap is available now directly from Superchips and its UK dealer network, priced at £445.00, including VAT @ 17.5%.

Superchips – don’t compromise, optimise.
