Increase power in the KIA ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI 140hp

How is the KIA ProCeed powered by the 1.4 T-GDI 140hp gasoline engine?

Let's say that the engine is OK. In the sense that the small 1400 (even less) is able to deliver a power of 140hp with a maximum torque of 242Nm, which, like for many modern turbo gasoline engines, are available at a very low speed, 1500 rpm. This is very useful for a car of this size. The mass of this beautiful KIA is over 14 quintals, which is certainly not an excessive weight for this type of car but still not a featherweight. These are the main specs that the 1400 turbocharged has to deal with.

As mentioned, the maximum torque is not bad and is exploitable at a speed lower than what turbodiesels are usually able to do (maybe in another article, we will talk about twinn-scroll turbines). Therefore, it is advantageous in starting and recovery, but the weight/torque ratio remains a bit disadvantageous. The top speed of this ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI is 205Km/h (reasonable for this type of car) while the classic 0-100 acceleration is covered in over 9 seconds, a fact that has discouraged some owners of this car that is beautiful and has solid technological features

How can you increase the performance of the KIA ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI 140hp?

Here, too, SELETRON has the solution. A chip tuning unit that is easily installed without modifying the engine. Before talking about the advantages of this solution, let's talk about a few more numbers because this is what most people are interested in.

The increase in torque obtainable on the small 1400 turbo is 45Nm, this means that the turbo-fuel can deliver a high power value, equal to 287Nm, which is what a good 3-liter aspirated gasoline or, for comparison, a good 2-liter turbo-petrol provided in the past decades but at speeds well beyond the 1500 rpm of our ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI. This is a good value that can push the more than 14 quintals of mass with greater ease and much more driving pleasure.

Even in stretching the rev counter, we are doing well because the Chipbox kit that we provide you immediately raises the power of 1400 up to 160 hp! Acceleration and recovery are affected the most by the new power and torque values, meaning a great improvement in the acceleration from standstill and faster and more pleasant recoveries. As it always happens in the presence of a substantial increase in engine torque, even overcoming climbs becomes easier and more comfortable, with fewer gear changes.

We would also like to add that in this case, it is possible to optimize petrol consumption because, thanks to a higher engine torque value, it is possible to exploit higher gears with less need to downshift. When you drive calmly, the CHIPBOX kit optimizes fuel consumption and increases elasticity and therefore driving comfort. Instead, when you are looking for a little more thrill, it unleashes the potential of the 160 HP and 287 Nm delivered by the 4-cylinder turbocharged engine.!

Let's return to the advantages of this solution. You can get these power and torque values simply by ordering the chip tuning module online for your KIA ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI 140 hp. You will receive a very high-quality kit directly to your home consisting of a special digital control unit capable of managing the injection and turbocharging parameters and the specific automotive wiring for easy connection to the engine wiring of your 1400 turbocharger. It also comes with specific instructions with photos to make the installation safe and achievable by anyone with a minimum of handiness (even without any experience in car tuning). There are no changes to the engine, the original KIA ECU is not touched, and everything can be restored to factory settings without any problem.

But that's not all. We can still do something to make your KIA ProCeed 1.4 T-GDI 140hp special. To increase your driving enjoyment, you can also order PEDALBOOSTER. It can be mounted in a few minutes without making any changes. It connects easily to the accelerator pedal of your KIA making the engine much more responsive. Again, you do not have to make any irreversible changes, just hook the electrical connectors similar to those present on the wiring of your ProCeed, and that's it. Greater responsiveness to accelerator pedal commands, more driving satisfaction, and more driving involvement, especially when your 1.4 T-GDI 140 hp is enhanced with CHIPBOX. Order our specific kit if you want to make your ProCeed unique, performing, and sporty. You will regret less not having ordered the sportier 1.6 T-GDI 204cv model, which we will talk about in another article!
