    help with Mini Cooper jcw - what ecu or tune to use?

    a friend has recently modified his 2009 jcw Mini Cooper with bigger turbo rods pistons cams etc.


    no one in australia has the capabilities to tune his standard ecu.


    his options given to him by a reputable work shop is the following:


    remove direct injection then;
    get custom intake manifold made
    custom fuel rail
    conventional injector set up and fit id1000
    2 fuel pumps
    new fuel lines
    fit motec or haltech piggy back


    by doing this they say the following may or may not occur:
    engine light will always be on
    no traction control
    dash wont work
    clutch assist wont work
    sports button wont work

    being in aus we do not have many mini specialists and no one can seem to help this guy. is there any one in usa that could help?

    thanks

    Cobb no longer supports these via access port but there are plenty of used ones on the market. From there you can use the pro tuner of your choice to create a suitable map. There are many other options but that's probably gonna be the easiest. Check out the marketplace on north american motoring for used APs. They are typically 5-700 usd

    I think Renntech might tune these? @m54b25
