British ECU remap specialist Superchip has recently targeted the 120 hp 1.4-liter turbocharged engine in Vauxhall / Opel’s range, with the results being visible in Corsa, Astra and Meriva forms - produced from April 2010 onwards.
The 1364cc unit now delivers an extra 22 hp at 5,428 rpm, with the company promising that the progressive increase can be felt from 1,700 rpm to the 6,250 rpm red line limiter. As for the torque, the engine has gained 36 Nm (26.5 lb-ft) at 2,557 rpm, but Superchips tells us that we get “noticeable gains” from 2500 to 5000 rpm.

As for the fuel efficiency, the tuning specialist tells us that, if the same driving style is kept, the fuel consumption will remain unchanged.
