Vorsprung Durch Superchips

Massive power gains now available for Audi models

If you drive an Audi A6 3.0-litre TDI Quattro or Audi A3 2.0 T FSI, you can now increase your car’s power and torque by an astonishing 52 bhp and 109 Nm or 45 bhp and 54 Nm, respectively, thanks to Superchips.

These are two of the latest applications developed by Superchips, the world leader in engine management system tuning and the first to re-map the A3’s Bosch MED9 engine control unit (ECU). The conversion, which takes only 45 minutes, is a painless operation for your car - and at just over £500 including VAT, it’s painless on your pocket too. If required, Superchips can also arrange favourable insurance via its specialist broker, Firebond.

The converted A6 will deliver a hefty 268 bhp at 4,238 rpm and an astounding 505 Nm of torque at 3,490 rpm. The A3’s maximum power rises to 241 bhp at 6,183 rpm and peak torque to 317 Nm at 2,572 rpm. The performance of both cars is greatly improved throughout the rev range, making them even more responsive and rewarding to drive.

These newly developed modifications can currently be performed only at Superchips’ head office and research centre in Buckingham, near Milton Keynes, but will soon be available through the company’s 85-strong UK dealer network.

Superchips is constantly finding ways to optimise engine performance, which car manufacturers deliberately limit to allow for extreme eventualities such as the car being filled with poor quality fuel or going an extremely long distance without a service.
