Delivering ECU remaps since 1977 – Be driven by us
Superchips ECU remaps will optimise the performance of your car, helping to maximize your driving pleasure. Engine tuning, for petrol or diesel engines, will change your driving experience.
There are so many limits on driving these days. Even your car’s intended performance is restricted because car manufacturers have to allow for drivers who do not adhere to service schedules and who use sub-standard fuels. The good news is that ECU remap software can free you from these limits.
So if you want the best from your car you need an engine ECU remap. Just call Superchips and we will free your engine from those restrictive limits, giving you a more rewarding, more exciting drive.

How does a Superchips ECU remap for petrol, TDi, GTi and HDi engines work?
Engine chipping came about after the introduction of the ECU. Since the early 1990s, most engines have been controlled by an on-board computer, the engine control unit (ECU), which amongst other functions, defines the ignition timing, fuelling and boost pressure for all given engine speeds and loads.ECU remapping lets us change the way the engine is controlled – and engine tuning gives you a more engaging drive.
Superchips develops a unique ECU remap for each car. HDi engine tuning is different from a GTi remap. A turbo diesel remap for one car will be different from another. And petrol engine ECU remaps will be different again.
Superchips invests extensively in development and testing and we bring over 30 years of experience to the job. We arrive at the optimised settings for your make and model of vehicle, ensuring that each remap is as individual as the software inside your ECU, safely eliminating those ‘performance compromises’.
In most cases this remapped program is installed electronically and remotely through the car’s diagnostic port; there’s no replacement chip, and we don’t touch the ECU itself.
And we always test your vehicle before handing it back for you to enjoy, just making sure everything is operating as it should be.
