Hi.

I've been exploring remap possibilities for a short while now. I do like the idea of the JCW upgrade kit Mini offer - it is however quite expensive for a small increase.

I contacted a local specialist regarding a map and this is what they had to say

Hi
ECU requires removal as it is fitted with a tuning protected Bosch MEVD17.2.9 ECU.
Impressive gains from the new 2.0 T engine from BMW is a modular unit and the stage 1 upgrade to 228bhp is the factory JCW software upgrade.
The stage 2 upgrade on the new 2.0 Turbo Mini Cooper S provides impressive power gains of 273hp and all within tolerance. This new engine is modular and is identical to the BMW 428i engine which produces 245bhp from factory meaning the upgrade is safe and reliable.

Stage 2 is the same price as it's the same process. No modifications are needed as the engine is designed to run at 270hp + on other bmw models

Can anyone confirm what I've been told? The price offered was around the £350 mark. The only thing holding me back is paranoia about breaking the car in the long run and having a voided warranty.

Thanks
Ash

I have had The DTUK tuning box fitted on my car, reason I went for it was because it is easily removed, so not affecting warranty. Also does not show on diagnostics,
I would be wary of the stage 2 remap as in the wet my car would now lose traction quite easily.
