The Morgan 4/4 is a true enthusiasts car. Uncomfortable, uncompromised in its focus and unfashionably retro it's a car we love. When you sit in the drivers seat, with the view of the long bonnet and flat dashboard in front of you, you can't help but feel as though you've stepped back in time. Equally archaic is the tiny interior. If you weren't familiar with your passenger before heading off for your drive, you'll certainly be familiar with them by your journey's end. There's no room to move or relax but that doesn't matter for the simple truth of the 4/4 is simply this... it's a car to have fun in. And fun you'll have.
When you buy a Morgan, you don't purchase the complete package. What you buy is your starting point in Morgan ownership. It's up to you to decide what Morgan you want to own. And part of that decision process is to decide how you want it to perform. At Mobile Remaps, our Morgan customers want a vehicle that is more responsive, more drivable a much more excitable than factory standard. And that's what we have repeatedly delivered for our customers.
When we visit a rolling road, it's rare that we find a car manufacturer actually delivers the power and torque they claim at factory but, Morgan's Ford Sigma engined 4/4 delivered exactly what it promised; 115bhp at 6170rpm and 98ft/lb of torque at 4615rpm in standard form. From a little 1600cc non-turbo petrol engine, that's a healthy set of figures and in a vehicle as light and agile as the Morgan 4/4 it's a fun engine to engage with. However those figures can be improved. And fortunately with one of Mobile Remaps' power maps both power and torque can be dramatically improved. Recently we had an opportunity to have one of our remapped Morgan 4/4's put on the rolling road at Dave Walker's (of Emerald ECU) workshop. The results speak for themselves. Our customer's car produced 136.9bhp and 118ft/lb of torque. Whilst the maximum power was produced almost 500rpm higher up the rev range, the extra 20ft/lb of torque provided from the remap was produced 400rpm lower in the rev range when compared with the Sigma's standard engine map, making a huge difference to the drivability of the Morgan 4/4. It's no wonder then the Moggy's owner said the vehicle's performance had been 'transformed'.
