UK's Superchips are going to super power Ford's new 1.0 liter three cylinder, direct injection turbocharged Ecoboost car. They've been able to improve the performance by quite a fair bit.
In stock trim, the three-cylinder gasoline unit is officially rated at 123hp (125PS) and 169Nm (125 lb-ft) or 200Nm (149 lb-ft) with the overboost function. On the dyno, Superchips found that the engine is slightly more powerful delivering 127hp.
After tweaking the ECU, the 1.0 liter engine was dyno tested at 145hp at 6,169 rpm and 227Nm at 2,656 rpm. The remap doesn't detract from the standard Focus 125PS Ecoboost’s 56 mpg UK (46.6 mpg US or 5.0lt/100km) average fuel consumption, just as long as the car is driven in a "like for like" manner.
Superchip's ECU upgrade is priced at £455 (about US$713 or €580) including VAT and can be fitted on all arch 2012 onwards variants of the 125 PS (123 bhp) Ford Focus 1.0-litre Ecoboost models.
