The electronic tuning experts at Superchips Ltd can now enhance Citroën’s special edition 204 bhp DS3 Racing performance even further!

Available now, the Buckingham based company is delighted to unveil a performance boosting ECU remap for the DS3 Racing, which is designed to deliver the ultimate driving experience to fans of Citroën’s current hot hatch flagship model.

The culmination of forensic analysis by Superchips’ engineers of the DS3 Racing’s Bosch MED 17 ECU in conjunction with in depth dyno and real world road testing, the Superchips remap safely delivers significantly enhanced performance without compromising it’s reliability.

In-house dyno testing of the Citroen DS3 Racing by Superchips reveals that the ECU conversion produces a maximum power gain of 26 bhp at 6312 rpm. Pleasingly, the Superchips upgrade realises performance increases throughout the rev range from the DS3 Racing’s 1.6-litre, direct injection, twin-scroll turbocharged engine, from 2000 rpm right up to the 6750 rpm rev limiter.

Superchips has also placed great emphasis on improving the low speed and mid range performance of the DS3 Racing’s EP6CDTX engine. Throttle response has improved noticeably, while torque increases from 2000 – 6750 rpm, giving an impressive peak gain of 46 Nm at just 3130 rpm.

On the road the Superchips performance ECU upgrade adds additional excitement to the already exciting Citroën DS3 Racing driving experience. The car feels more eager, crisper and livelier, with significantly improved in gear acceleration. No performance figures have yet been recorded, but it’s expected that the Superchips upgraded Citroën DS3 Racing will eclipse the quoted 6.5 seconds 0-60 mph time and 149 mph top speed.

The additional performance delivered by the Superchips upgrade doesn’t affect the Citroën DS3 Racing’s 42 mpg combined fuel economy, so despite the noticeable performance increase from the ECU remap, if a Superchips equipped Citroën DS3 Racing is driven in a ‘like for like’ manner, fuel consumption will not be negatively affected.

The Superchips Citroën DS3 Racing upgrade requires installation at one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres and is covered by a full Customer Service Guarantee and an industry-leading 12 month / 30,000 supplementary full vehicle warranty.*

The upgrade is suitable for all Citroën DS3 Racing models produced from January 2011 onwards. The Superchips ECU remap is available now directly from Superchips and its UK dealer network, at a cost of £455.00, including VAT @ 20%.

Superchips – don’t compromise, optimise.
