Mercedes Benz Vito 111 CDI gains 43bhp and 81 Nm

Owners of the Mercedes Benz Vito 111 CDI can now improve their van’s power and torque by an astonishing 43 bhp and 81 Nm, with no adverse effect on fuel economy.

These astonishing gains are available from Superchips, the world leader in engine management system tuning. Reprogramming the engine control unit (ECU) takes no more than 45 minutes and costs just over £500, an investment that can reap rich rewards in operational efficiency.

Superchips is constantly finding ways to optimise engine performance, which vehicle manufacturers deliberately limit to allow for extreme eventualities such as the vehicle being filled with poor quality fuel or going an extremely long distance without a service. By re-mapping the ECU, Superchips can unleash the engine’s true performance potential.

Superchips has already developed an ECU conversion for virtually every car on the market and is adding an increasing number of vans to its repertoire. The company’s capabilities in the light commercial vehicle market are graphically demonstrated by the all-new 2.0-litre Volkswagen Caddy TDI, which was prepared by Superchips to compete in the VW Racing Cup. Power was increased by a massive 93 bhp and torque by a staggering 187 Nm.

Van conversions can be carried out at 85 Superchips dealers nationwide, or at the company’s headquarters in Buckingham. In some parts of the country, the work can be done at the customer’s home or office, courtesy of one of the network’s mobile units. If required, Superchips can even arrange favourable insurance via its specialist broker, Firebond.
