Citroen's special edition 204 hp DS3 Racing has been causing waves in the hot hatch market, but now the electronic tuning experts at Superchips Ltd can enhance the car's performance even further!

Available now, the Buckingham based concern has unveiled a performance boosting ECU remap for the DS3 Racing, designed to deliver the ultimate driving experience to fans of Citroen's current flagship model.

In-house dyno testing of the Citroen DS3 Racing by Superchips reveals that the ECU conversion produces a maximum power gain of 26 hp at 6312 rpm. Pleasingly, the Superchips upgrade realizes performance increases throughout the rev range from the DS3 Racing's 1.6-liter, direct injection, twin-scroll turbocharged engine, from 2000 rpm right to the 6750 rpm 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 is noticeably improved, while torque increases from 2000 - 6750 rpm, culminating in an impressive peak gain of 34 lb-ft (46 Nm) at just 3130 rpm.

No performance figures have yet been recorded, but it's expected that the Superchips upgraded Citroen DS3 Racing will eclipse the quoted 6.5 seconds 0-60 mph time and 149 mph top speed.

Suitable for all Citroen DS3 Racing models produced from January 2011 onwards, the Superchips ECU remap is available now directly from Superchips and its UK dealer network, priced at 455.00 GBP, including VAT (that's $700 at today's exchange rate).
