Superchips tweaks the Fiesta Zetec S
Superchips has always been ready to respond to the large demand for Ford tuning products in the UK and its latest Bluefin release – a high performance ECU remap for the popular and stylish petrol engined Mk7 120 PS 1.6-litre Ford Fiesta Zetec S - is no exception.
The Superchips ECU remap features settings which have been optimised through a mixture of dyno tuning and real world road testing, enabling Superchips to extract an additional 10 bhp at 5986 rpm from the Fiesta’s 1.6-litre Ti-VCT twin independent cam timing engine, with torque increasing by 13 Nm at 4390rpm.
With useful performance gains from 2500 rpm right the way to the 6750 rpm rev limiter, the Superchips conversion makes the Fiesta Zetec S feel more exciting, sportier and more responsive right through the rev range, making everyday driving more pleasurable.
At a time of record motoring costs, the Superchips upgrade is designed to work with either 95 or 98 octane fuel and if driven in a like for like manner with the standard car, the Fiesta Zetec S’s 48 mpg combined fuel economy will be unaffected.
And thanks to Superchips’ market leading Bluefin plug ‘n’ go handset, it’s never been easier for Mk7 Ford Fiesta Zetec S owners to enjoy the extra performance and excitement of a Superchips ECU remap.
No technical skills are required as Superchips’ customers plug the Bluefin handset into the Fiesta’s OBDII diagnostic port and then follow the simple on-screen instructions, a process which takes a matter of minutes.
As part of this process, the original factory Fiesta Zetec S ECU map settings are stored within the Bluefin handset for future use, which means converting the car back to standard is a swift and simple ‘plug and go’ DIY task.
Alternatively, customers can visit one of approximately 80 UK wide Superchips performance centres, where trained technicians can undertake the remapping procedure.
Suitable for all Mk7 1.6-litre 120 PS Fiesta Zetec S models produced from 1st October 2008 onwards, the Superchips upgrade is priced competitively at just £249.00 including VAT @ 20%.
Superchips customers can also relax in the knowledge that the Superchips’ Ford Fiesta Zetec S conversion is covered by a full Customer Service Guarantee and an industry-leading 12 month / 30,000 supplementary full vehicle warranty.
