Something new? I installed on a B48, a lot of fun. However, impossible to assess gains on a dynamometer. the panel turned a real Christmas tree.

curious, any plans for a BMS intake? The ones coming to market are like ~$350 which is a bit excessive for a pipe, filter, and heat shield IMO.

We did some preliminary testing and determined like the N20, it doesn't offer much performance benefit, so nothing is planned on that front. We do have plans for stronger tuning and E85 support when the time is right.

good news! for us here in Brazil, we use pure ethanol and of course, it's easy to add the missing 15%. the wmi is not longer necessary, only suffers a bit in winter. if compare to almost 25 psi used in VAG 2.0TSI, there is still much to develop.

with that being said, did you find any benefit to different filters or just rocking the OEM filter?

We don't own a B48, but on our local customer test car, suggested they stay OEM.

Sorry nothing new, yet. Still waiting for more of the Stage1 to roll out before we start looking at E85 and race gas maps.

terry, there would be some gain by doing exhaust? I'm thinking of a down pipe with high flow catalyst. Do you think there would be some gain?

Stage 1 kit installed on a European COOPER S model.

First impressions, much stronger in the mid-range, now I feel the torque steer (95-octane gasoline, I have to try the 98 octane).

Rises better at all rotations.

Very good price for what it offers.

The box is big and hard to hide.

I had no courage to uninstall to measure, but the factory specs are:

192Cvs 4.700 to 6.000
28,5 Kgm 1.250 to 4.700 (overboost 30 Kgm)

measured in 4th gear without pressing the kickdown

Tested on our dyno (just front rollers).

Here's how we did it.
Initially we had trouble (engine was cutting power).
The issue was that the car was tested once without activating the dyno mode.
We drove it a bit on the road to make the errors disappear then we did it like this:
1) Press the ignition lever once to turn the dash on
2) immediately keep the odometer reset button pressed for 15 seconds. The hidden menu will appear
3) press the button twice to go into "roller test"
4) keep the button pressed 3 seconds to activate it. You'll see a orange triangle then the start stop and DSC icons slashed
5) turn on the car and leave it on
6) put it on the dyno and set it up to be tested (OBDII plug etc)
7) activate the sport mode with the gearleve ring
8) launch

Measured:
206 hp and 309 nm:

Saw this posted on NAM for how to get in to dyno mode:

Apparently remaps are hard to find for the F56 Cooper S, as the ECU has something they call " corrective mapping". Basically that means any new software that is uploaded is corrected/deleted by the ECU.


Is thru or false...... ???
