In the automotive space, MINI is known for making some of the most fun-to-drive cars around. They might not be super powerful, but they’re light and tossable. Plus the small size makes it much easier to place the car where you want it in a corner. Eventually, though, most Mini owners want more power than the stock Cooper S has to offer. Of course, modifications such as a smaller supercharger pulley, intake, and exhaust are a good way to pick up some power, without a tune mods can’t properly be realized.

Luckily, we have a solution for this problem. With the VR Tuned ECU flash, we change the parameters the ECU stays within to increase power. This means altering things such as air/fuel ratio, timing, boost, rev-limiters, and many more things. The result is a fine-tuned and fully optimized ECU for your car. The R53 Cooper S, in particular, jumps up 27 horsepower and 7 ft-lbs of torque. Along with the increase in power, throttle response is improved, greatly the overall driving experience.

  • Stock Power: 163 HP and 155 FT-LBS
  • Tuned Power: 190 HP and 162 FT-LBS
