Superchips has released a Bluefin high performance ECU remap for the petrol engined Mk7 120PS 1.6 litre Ford Fiesta Zetec.
A combination of dyno tuning and real world road tests have resulted in the Superchips ECU remap settings which enable an additional 10bhp at 5986rpm from the Ford Fiesta's 1.6 litre Ti-VCT twin independent cam timing engine, with a torque increase of 13Nm at 4390rpm.
Power gains are available from 2500rpm through to the 6750rpm rev limit giving the Ford Fiesta Zetec S a sportier and more responsive drive.
The Superchips upgrade works with both 95 and 98 octane fuel and if driven in a like for like manner with the standard car, the 48mpg combined fuel economy of the Ford Fiesta Zetec S can still be achieved.
No technical skills are required to fit Superchips' Bluefin ECU remap, customers can plug the Bluefin handset into the Ford Fiesta's OBDII diagnostic port and follow on-screen instructions.
The original Ford Fiesta Zetec S ECU map settings are stored in the Bluefin handset, allowing for an easy reset to the standard settings if required.
Customers can also visit on of Superchips' 80 performance centres across the UK where a trained technician can complete the remapping procedure.
The Superchips ECU remap is priced at £249 and is suitable for all Mk7 1.6-litre 120 PS Fiesta Zetec S models produced from 1st October 2008 onwards.
