Vauxhall cars have always been a favourite with UK drivers seeking extra performance and the new generation GM 1.4-litre petrol turbo powerplant offers plenty of tuning potential at an affordable price.

Superchips - the world’s leading high performance ECU remapping specialist - can now unlock that tuning potential for owners of Vauxhall Astra J (GTC), Corsa ‘Black’ and Meriva models which run the 1364cc 120PS 1.4T motor. Thanks to an extensive combination of chassis dyno and road testing, Superchips’ technicians have developed a performance Bluefin ECU remap for this engine’s Delco engine management system that enhances the power output of these models whilst retaining factory failsafe protocols and reliability levels.

The Superchips Bluefin ECU remap for 1.4T 120PS variants of the Vauxhall Astra J, Corsa and Meriva produces an extra 22bhp at 5428rpm, with progressive increases throughout the rev range from just 1700rpm all the way to the powerplant’s 6250rpm limiter. Torque outputs are similarly enhanced, with the Superchips remap producing noticeable gains from 2500 to 5000rpm. This culminates in an impressive torque increase of 36Nm at just 2557rpm, highlighting the user-friendly nature of the conversion.

On the road the Superchips Bluefin ECU remap makes these Vauxhall models feel considerably livelier and more willing, delivering a more exciting, rewarding every day drive. Fast cruising, overtaking and load carrying performance are greatly enhanced, making an improvement on (for example) the Corsa Black’s standard 9.7 seconds 0-60mph sprint highly likely.

Yet this extra verve doesn’t come at the expense of fuel economy. The combination of the additional low-speed torque and the extra efficiencies delivered by the Superchips Bluefin ECU remap means that if these Astra, Corsa and Meriva 1.4T 120PS models are driven in a ‘like for like’ manner then standard fuel economy levels will be retained.

The Superchips ECU remap for the Astra, Corsa and Meriva 1.4T 120PS models is available on Superchips’ market leading Bluefin ‘Plug-in and Go’ programming handset. No mechanical or technical skills are required, because Bluefin allows for quick and easy DIY uploading of the Superchips ECU remap onto these Vauxhall models’ in a matter of minutes. As part of this process, the Superchips Bluefin handset also stores the cars original ECU map, enabling the owner to reload the standard map at any time. Alternatively, customers can visit one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres, where trained technicians can undertake the Bluefin ECU remap installation procedure.
