Why does my car need a Superchip?
The most popular method of tuning today is by re-mapping the engines computer and maximising the efficiency of the engine. By installing a superchip most modern diesel and petrol cars can quickly be modified, not only to increase the performance but also to remove flat spots and hesitation making the car more lively and responsive.
How much will it cost?
- From £299.00 for a non turbo car
- From £499.00 for a turbo charged car

How is it done
Superchips are world leaders at reprogramming your car's on-board computer to enhance performance. For any particular car, Superchips can reprogramme the information held on the computer's chip (hence our name) to optimise and improve power output without compromising fuel economy.
The technical stuff
Car manufacturer's call the on-board computer the Electronic Control Unit (the ECU). This monitors and controls ignition timing and the fuelling across a range of driving conditions. The Superchip is programmed to adjust the timing and fuelling maps to optimise performance.
How will my car improve after fitting a chip?
Over 15 years, Superchips have developed a unique set of applications for most modern cars, including Non turbos, Turbos and Turbocharged diesels.
Non Turbo (normally aspirated engine) cars
Superchip's re-mapping of the on board computer gives up to 10% more power. Other annoying traits such as hesitation and poor throttle response, that can occur on computer-controlled cars, are eliminated making the car more lively and responsive. This makes in-town driving a pleasure, requiring less gear changing with a smooth and progressive engine response.
There are impressive gains of up to 25% more power and torque. Driving pleasure is increased through less gear changing and you will feel that your car is more lively and responsive. Superchips do this by increasing the manufacturer's boost limit. And with the reprogrammed computer matching the car's ignition timing and fuelling, long term reliability of the engine is retained.
Turbocharged Diesel cars
Superchip's reprogramming of the computer matches the fuelling to the increased manufacturer's boost pressure, giving impressive gains of up to 30% more torque and more power. This adds to driving pleasure, requiring less gear changing, making the car more lively and responsive. There is also the potential for improved fuel economy.
