    Superchips help !

    I recently bought my s3 and shortly after found a super chips ltd customer key hidden away in the glove box . No mension was made from the dealer which made me wonder wheather or not it had been chipped .
    After a mate of mine drove my car and compared it to his i turned out mine has been chipped.

    My questions are what bhp do they normally add to the 225 version are they reliable and would i see greater benifits from a remap instead . I plan to install a large intercooler asap .

    Thanks stevess3

    Dont really know but i would guess 250-260...must be the same as a remap but possibly a soldered in chip as opposed to a re-flashed ecu - someone will answer for sure soon !

    It goes pretty well to be honest but fuel economy seems pretty poor !

    All S3's have poor fuel economy when going well

    I managed to get 200 PS 2.0 T to average 19 MPG over a couple of days

    it will be an obd11 flash chip, not a soldered in chip, (only need to do that for the early ecus on 18ts).

    Same code as the more modern "bluefin" superchips code, but without the option to deinstall like bluefin does.

    Bluefin is c500, so its a bargain having the code already in there!

    if you go to the superchips website you should be able to get the exact figures and a power graph also. They are generic remaps so will be the same for all 225's and 210's i think.

    hope that helps, from memory i think its 256bhp.

    when i spoke to the garage that 'superchipped' my car under a previous owner (deactivated at present ) they said that the key just proves who owns the remap and that if i wanted it put back on it would cost a small fee (about 40) to re-install it....


    is that any help ?

    i dont really understand why it looks like a piece of 80's computer equipment.
