1.4 turbo remaps

Post by Ninjanutz74 » Tue Nov 03, 2020 10:52 am

Hi everyone.
I ‘ve had a superchips(bluefin) map on my 2015 1.4 turbo for a couple of years now. The remap is claimed to give 148bhp. The thing is, if you go on superchips website now and put your corsa in as being from 2016- you can have it mapped to 170bhp! Does anyone know what the difference is between 2015 models and 2016 on?

Are you saying the superchips remap you had done can't be changed to get you the 176bhp second stage remap due to the age of your car?

It seems that way, if i put my reg in it comes up saying we can give you 148bhp, but if you put the reg of a newer vehicle in it says we can give you 170bhp.

Would suggest you speak to anoter remapping company and see what they say

I guess they just improved the map over time, most mappers can get 170bhp from the 1.4t 100 or 150 version.

Can the 1.4T 100bhp handle the 270NM torque of a remap? I've read that the M22 gearbox is only rated to 220NM but I'm not sure whether they use that or the M32 gearbox found in the VXR that can handle 320NM. I'm looking at getting mine bumped to 170bhp but I want to ensure the drivetrain can take the 35% torque increase.

The 1.4T has the M32 gearbox

If you are going to remap to the full 176bhp may want to consider getting better discs and pads

Guys-I have also been thinking about a remap for my 1.4 Turbo and earlier in the week contacted Superchips. They confirmed that there is not a Bluefin remap (150BHP) available for my Corsa (17 plate). Apparently from 16/17 reg the data in the ECU is too much for the current Bluefin to cope with! They also said that they are working on an updated version of the Bluefin which should be able to cope but couldn't advise a release date.
Meanwhile, they can offer a remap of 170bhp but this would be carried out by a mobile technician.
I am slightly puzzled and disappointed by this as I'm sure that a 150bhp remap would be more than enough for me!
