Ford 1.0L Ecoboost gets more power

The impressive 1.0 liter Ecoboost engine made by Ford is now delivering more power from the same block, equivalent to a 1.6 liter unit.

Just when you thought you have seen it all with the 1.0 liter Ecoboost engine made by Ford, the boffins of Superchips in the UK managed to squeeze more horses from the same unit thanks to a Bluefin ECU remapping of the ignition, boost control parameters and fuelling, and the result was an additional 16 horsepower at 4,728 rpm and an extra 36 Nm of torque available at 2,296 rpm. The remap of the 1.0 liter Ecoboost engine is said to deliver “a safe, reliable and consistent additional power” and the fuel economy hasn’t been affected. The Superchips Bluefin can be yours for 455 GBP, VAT included.

As a quick reminder, the 1.0 liter three-cylinder Ecoboost engine is being produced in Craiova, Romania and at the company’s facility in Koln, Germany, and it can be found across Europe in two versions, with 100 HP and 125 HP, on the new Ford Focus, where it’s highly appreciated for its refinement, performance and fuel economy. The same engine will also be adopted on the Ford B-MAX, the Ford C-MAX and on the Ford Grand C-MAX, along with other future models.
