Hey guys,

Ok ive been driving round now for 2 months, with my mini one,

it has the following performance mods:

Buefin Chip,

KW V1 Coilovers

Pipercross ViperKit

Iridium Spark Plugs

Miltek Cat Back Exhaust

....

probably producing around 100 brake o something ?

i want more, how would i get more performance and acceleration from my mini one

without speding a large ammount ? or is a large ammount required to take it higher ?

your comments are appriciated

thanks mate !

ive looked around and tbh, i have like the level 2 package just without the janspeed manifold,


what gains do you think i can expect by adding a janspeed manifold to the rest of my mods ?

Manifold with sports cat should make a bit of a difference because you have bluefin. Maybe get your car RR'd with your current setup to see what it is sitting at then decide from there.

It would also make the exhaust louder lol

sweet doesnt sound too bad ? worth the 540 quid ?

"RR'd" ? ?

how much BHP gain you think 3-5 ?
rolling road to measure the current BHP of your car.

I would say with your induction, spark plugs, bluefin and exhaust at least 125bhp on your car.

Im surprised more people havent posted on this yet they would know more about the manifolds but it should make a difference yes about what you said maybe a bit more.

Maybe post in engine tuning bit and see what response you will get. :D

Sorry i cant be more help

I have a Bluefin & ITG panel filter on my ONE. It should be making around 125bhp.
Certainly feels quicker above 4Krpm. It's quicker than a standard Cooper - I know that for a fact! ;)

Something which will help sharpen up the throttle response is a Sprint Booster.
This plugs into the back of the accelerator pedal & adjusts the signal to the ECU. It won't add any extra power but it will feel a lot better to drive.
I'm planning to get one pretty soon.

This sounds very good, how much does one of these set you back ?

does any one on this forum have one and can honestly say it works and has an added benefit ?

regards

My Mini ONE has Bluefin and a K&N Filter and i just had mine dyno'd the other day and its producing 130BHP :p

With just me in the car and no extra weight the car is extreemly rapid, like 0-60 in about 8.5 secs which is good for a ONE.... if your not happy with bluefin then its probly not installed proply as its a fantastic bit of kit which adds tons of extra grunt

130bhp is damn good from a Bluefin & K&N!!! I have the Bluefin software installed as well & it's great.

I fitted a JCW air box yesterday & just off to fit a Sprint Booster that arrived this morning!!:)
