Superchips, the world leader in engine management system tuning, can now re-programme the 2.7-litre diesel engine of the all-new Land Rover Discovery 3 TDV6, delivering a maximum power gain of 36 bhp and boosting torque by 71 Nm. The conversion costs only £511.13 including VAT and has no adverse effect on fuel economy.
The most impressive power and torque gains kick in from around 2,500 rpm, with the greatest power increase of 36 bhp achieved at 3,802 rpm and the biggest torque boost of 71 Nm at 3,427 rpm. These astonishing improvements make the engine far more responsive and greatly improve overall ‘driveability’, giving a more rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road.
Engine performance is deliberately limited by vehicle manufacturers to allow for the possibility of the worst grade of fuel being used or the car being allowed to run for many miles without a service. Superchips removes these performance barriers by re-programming the engine’s electronic control unit (ECU). It’s a quick and easy operation, though the technical research and development process that lies behind the modification is amazingly complex.
With unrivalled experience, Superchips can make dramatic performance improvements to over 700 cars, including the vast majority of makes and models. All types of engine are catered for, whether normally aspirated, turbo petrol or turbo diesel.
Conversions are carried out at Superchips’ 85 dealers nationwide and at the company’s headquarters in Buckingham. In some parts of the country, they can also be done at a customer’s home or place of work, courtesy of one of the network’s mobile units. If required, Superchips can also arrange favourable insurance via specialist brokers.
