We have mapped our first brand new Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works (F56) 2.0 petrol. Our customer searched the internet and struggled to find a tuning company who could to remap his new toy to his specific needs. He contacted us as we are authorised dealers for Elite tuning software who have developed the tuning file for the Mini on their state of the art Dyno.

I spoke to the customer and explained we had to remove the engine control unit and remap it on the bench using the KTAG equipment as the ECU is a Bosch MEVD17.2.9 which has a Tricore processor which enables software flashing through the vehicles diagnostic port. Once the vehicle was mapped and road tested in ‘go kart mode’, the customer test drove the vehicle and drove back with a big smile on his face. The figures below say it all.
