May 1st, 2007, 10:57 PM
you've done your research. Had my car on the rolling road now. have a look
oh for reliability well worth mentioning i have just fitted a new gearbox, clutch and flywheel.
Plus i got mine chiped at Performance torque

how much did it set you back for the cooper s gearbox and fitting? (richard22b)

I think anyone who entertains the idea that you can get 138BHP with a chip in a One is deluding themselves.
A N.A. MINI with a good head, exhaust, induction kit and exhaust will produce that sort of power but not with a chip on it's own.
The Cooper Works I owned hit nigh on 140BHP on the rolling road and I've yet to see someone beat it with the same mods. The Works I had was the road going version of The John Cooper Challenge car. If that can only achieve 140BHP then a standard One will never get 138BHP ever.
The fact he's lied on eBay as well speaks volumes. However, having said that, it's still a good price to get 115BHP which is what it actually looks like it is.

yes, but if you look on the GT tuning web site that offers a ecu remap, with the performance going from 130 -137bhp!!! This would be the same as the shires perfomance readings.

Im aiming to hit 155bhp by the end of the summer in my little Mini One.:D
May 2nd, 2007, 08:32 PM
The fall conversion with exedy clutch kit/flywheel etc was between £2000 - £2500
Im also planning on getting more out of mine. I'm working with paul at 1320autos to see what we can do
May 2nd, 2007, 08:44 PM
good plan, they are a decent bunch over at 1320.

It might be an idea for him to get setup as a member on hear as he will make alot more sales at this price, and if some members do get it tested and found to be true and post the results,
Then i can see a few members who have replied to this post who are already interested!
if he's into makeing money then this is the place for him to start!

thats real impressive for just a chip on a one 138bhp mine has had a blue fin chip cat back exhast and panel filter and drilled air box and mine made them numbers running optimax fuel on the rollers but didn't get a print out as it was a fav by a mate will have it done again soon and get a print out do have the paper from when it was first done with normal cheap as chips asda fuel and it made 134bhp. my one made 106bhp before it was chipped. my next plan is to have a head fully done and manifold as the exhast ports are so poor on a mini.

Sorry I am new to this site. Picking up a mini today. Interested in gettting the ECU remapped.
Does this affect the warrenty? Where is best to get it done?

I have to warn you now it will effect your warranty as it is modifying the engine.
Best engine re-maps from my personal point of view is Bluefin. Superchips - Rediscover the joy of the open road (http://www.superchips.co.uk).
Their simple, slot for them under the steering wheel, you can take it out when you need to and Bobs your uncle.
Don't be fooled to buy one of ebay, as you need it to be mapped to your mini and not anyone else's.
Hope this has helped you.

very intrested in this mod but sureley it will effect the car in some other way. i noticed above somebody put they have to use octane fuel. now on a car that is designed to use normal unleaded wont this affect the engine parts over time? or wont the extra power lead to items braking on the engine as it cant cope with the extra power? or where they designed to have chips put on them? many thanks simon

A One or Cooper on 138 Hp with only remapping is impossible!
Read this very interesting topic: -click- (http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127590)
You have to do also a lot of mechanical adaptations to reach the 125 Hp level.
For example my MINI One with the follow setup:
- M7 DDMWORKS CAI package (open airfilter with heat shield)
- M7 modified throttle body (11,2% larger and better flow)
- Denso iridium spark plugs
- Supersprint rear exhaust
- custom made stainless centre pipe (50 mm)
- custom made remap file
Results: 130 Hp and 170 Nm
Using a higher octane fuel is necessary to prevent knocking (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_knocking). I don't fuel my MINI with octane 95 because of my tuning but only with 98 or higher. That couple cents more of costs, will result in higher radius of action.

okay, without looking too far into this, the claimed figures WILL be at the flywheel and NOT the wheels..... just like the standard 90 bhp figure is...... i run an S3 with an apparent 270bhp, at the wheels it makes about 170-180 due to various reasons, the problem you have is that most rollers depending on whether they are hollow rollers or offer any resistance will be subject to loads of different factors when working out the figures produced...the flywheel figure is the easiest figure to fudge and can be manipulated extremely easily and suprise suprise, this is the figure that you will get quoted by most RR's.......
My misus (whos ID this is) has a Bluefinned Mini One, the difference was really good, loads better than any normally aspirated engine chip ive ever known, the reason is like most have said on here, because the One is detuned as standard... i honestly think this guy who is claiming 138bhp is talkiing absolute twoddle (putting it nicely) and playing to the lack of knowledge of the general public who mostly do not know how rolling roads work...im no expert but i know the basics and enough to know that these claimed figures are pure fiction.... heres a true test, go get a mapped One on true rollers and then put this other wonderful brand map on the same rollers quoting ONLY wheel figures.... id love to bet on the outcome (maybe this would make a good meet?)
Oh and the beating a Cayenne claim? no offence but a basic Cayenne is a challenge for most cars let alone yours..... meaning this in the nicest way possible, he was playing with you...the Cooper S would just edge that race from a standing start (Cayenne are roughly 7.5secs 0-60), the sheer torque in a Cayenne would stop me betting against it in a mid range race against the cooper S......
I dont mean to make enemies here, but feel that some people need to learn like i have and that these quoted figures are Sales...that is all

Can you get this for the new mini one?
I can only see it on their website for the 1.6.

best asking on the Mini2nd gen threads beasties

I've got a Mini ONE with 130BHP (with power readout to prove it) from just a Bluefin map, K&N Induction kit and SprintBooster... goes like **** off a shovel now
