Superchips Bluefin Plug & Play ECU Upgrade
Superchips’ Bluefin packages all the benefits of an expertly programmed remap into a simple to use DIY handset. A remap will increase your engine's power and torque.
- Increased power
- Increased torque
- Easy to use DIY handset
A modern engine is controlled by an electronic Engine Control Unit (ECU). This means tuning the engine can be as simple as flashing new software onto this. Normally this process requires hooking your car up to a laptop or removing the ECU. The genius of the Bluefin is that it packs the hardware needed to do this into an easy to use hand-set. Tuning your engine for more power can be as simple as upgrading your phone's OS.
The ECU controls fueling, ignition, boost, and throttle openings. By reprogramming your cars ECU to boost harder, fuel more, and run more aggressive ignition mapping the power it makes overall can be increased, and power curves can be fine-tuned. It's not just about increasing the total power of the engine, although this is definitely part of what Superchips do. Increased mid-range torque is also very important. Getting more power without having to wring out your engine makes for safer, more effortless overtaking.
All maps are Stage 1 and work with factory hardware or bolt-on add-ons like induction kits, panel filters, and cat-backs. This means the map will perform as advertised on a completely stock vehicle, but will probably provide extra benefit from hardware upgrades - i.e. if an air intake provided a 10 horsepower increase on a factory ECU map, you'd normally expect slightly more with a Stage 1 map. For selected applications, stage 2 and higher maps are available. These are designed for non-standard hardware.
The exact gains on offer will vary from engine to engine. Some may offer much more than this - this will usually be where an engine has been electronically limited in it's power output. Others may offer less, but this will typically be because the engine is already tuned as efficiently as possible.
Turbo Diesel engines usually offer up to 25% gains. Once the Superchips Bluefin has been run on your vehicle you will enjoy a noticeably smoother driving experience. As you have more power available on demand you may well be changing gear less and gaining in fuel efficiency. On the other hand you may be enjoying the increased power and losing fuel efficiency.
On Turbocharged petrol engines Superchips normally offer up to 20% extra BHP and 25% extra mid-range torque. This fatter power-curve gives you effortless power where you use it most in day-to-day driving and makes overtaking effortless and safer.
Non-Turbo petrol engines usually enjoy up to 10% power gains and a sharper throttle response on many engines with "Drive-By-Wire" throttles.
When you purchase a Bluefin you receive a Bluefin handset and all the cables you need. Normally the process involves connecting the Bluefin to your vehicle, answering questions on-screen, and in some cases connecting the Bluefin to Superchips via the internet.
In just minutes, the Superchips Bluefin will have installed the new Superchips remap and stored your vehicles existing map for safekeeping. Because the Bluefin stores your factory map you can reinstall it at any time and put your vehicle back to normal.
The remaps the Bluefins install are exactly the same as offered with our technician install service and offer all the same benefits but with no messy soldering or swapping out ECU chips, just “Plug-and-Play” power increases on your own driveway.
