Superchips has unveiled an ECU remap for 'phase 2' versions of the R56 MINI Cooper S turbo, which features the 181 bhp (184 PS) 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, produced from 1st March 2010 onwards.
A combination of the analysis of the MINI's Bosch MED 17 ECU and extensive dyno testing and on-road assessment have allowed Superchips' ECU remap to boost power by up to 25bhp at 5444rpm. Power increases are available across the rev range, from as low as 2000rpm.
Peak torque increases by up to 32Nm at 3765rpm with gains from 3000 - 6000rpm, meaning that the MINI Cooper S Superchips ECU remap will deliver a crisper more exciting drive.
When driven in a like for like manner with a standard MINI Cooper S, the fuel consumption figure of 48mpg (combined) will remain unchanged by the Superchips ECU remap.
The MINI Cooper S Superchips ECU remap requires customers to visit one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres, where trained technicians can undertake the remapping procedure.
The Superchips conversion is covered by a full Customer Service Guarantee and a 12 month / 30,000 supplementary full vehicle warranty.
The Superchips' ECU remap is suitable for all 'Phase two' 181 bhp R56 MINI Cooper S models produced from March 2010 onwards, and is available now directly from Superchips and its UK dealer network, priced at £455.00, including VAT @ 20%.Published 19 May 2011
