Hi everyone ! :)

i'm Greg from Belgium and i introduce you my black beast :nerd:


Mini Cooper S 235HP :


All chrome in black
All windows tinted in 65%
ECU from PPE Belgium (Speed Buster Digital Module)
REMUS Valve exhaust
BMC air filter
Kw V1


In February when it will be available i will fit a Forged intercooler and a Downpipe + Chiptuning,

they are waiting about 300cv with my modifications.


They done a Bmw 1series 25i this week (same engine then the Cooper s F56),
and they had 290Cv with just a chiptuning >:D

Nice.
Do you have anymore info on the ECU upgrade? As there is no aftermarket upgrade available in the UK yet.

Just thinking can the gear box clutch etc cope with that and does it torque steer across every road ripple or can the drive train cope?,in other words how does it go Mr?

Actually with 235cv & michelin pilot super sport and a good lowering it's ok,
hoping with more power it will be workable :eek:

Actually for the Gearbox and clutch it's ok, you have to know that is the same engine as the 125i, 328i, 428i, etc etc ...

Answer in a few week :D

Thanks suntec, if that's the case 're bmws then the gearbox etc should have plenty of capacity to cope.

Welcome mate! :)

You know I think your car looks great!

Regarding the engine though - the MINI engine is the B48 or (B46 if you have the lower emission US version) which were built especially for the F56 model and some of the upcoming BMW range (for example 2 series Active Tourer)

The engine in the BMW's you mention is the N20 - its a different engine as far as I'm aware :)

No i think it's the same ;)

And in the Active Tourer like the F56 JCW : 231HP then with a good Chiptuning you will have minimum 270hp +Forge+BMC+REMUS+DOWNPIPE i think i will have about 280/300cv at least i hope i'm not wrong ;)

I think your right in terms of the power you expect, but the N20 and B48 are not the same engine I don't think??

Yes James you are right, we have B48 and F20-F30 N20 ;)

But the good news is we have the same engine as JCW and Ative Tourer ^^



The car is amazing with about 235hp i don't imagine with 280 or more :eek:

Hey suntech,

What did you use to black out your chrome around the car? Looks nice.

And also, about the tube, Neuspeed is coming out with a tube also Fist week of January.

Any thoughts on this? can the engine handle the increase in power/gearbox?
