Mini Cooper makes some of the most iconic hot hatches in existence. Pretty much everyone knows how much fun it is to zip around town in a Mini, but when it comes to pure performance, some of us are left wanting more. Luckily, Mini has been using turbocharged engines, and getting more from a turbo engine is as easy as turning up the boost. Our tuning department, VR Tuned, has worked hard on creating a tune that has a perfect balance between power and maintaining long-term reliability. Cranking power way up will always result in a decrease in reliability down the road, and no one wants that.
With this tune, the ECU has parameters such as boost, air/fuel ratio, ignition timing, torque limiters, and much more adjusted to increase power. The biggest jump is in torque, which jumps from 192 to 251 lb-ft, making your Mini much faster off the line, much more fun on the street, and it will pull much harder when coming out of corners. Just recently a customer of our purchased this tune for their 2011 Cooper S and they said “car runs great!” Learn more and order a VR Tuned ECU flash here.
