The global leader in ECU remapping, Superchips, has launched a two-stage conversion for the turbocharged petrol, 1.5-litre version of the Mini Cooper.
The first stage is a traditional remap, which Superchips has led the field for decades. Stage 1 adds almost 30% more power and torque, with gains of 43bhp at 5504rpm and 62Nm of torque at 4018rpm. Not only does the conversion increase the output, it also smoothes the torque curve and extends it, improving both performance and driveability.
The full power and torque curves for Stage 1 can be seen by clicking the following link:
For drivers who want more from the diminutive Mini, Stage 2 can be specified for cars that have been fitted with a performance panel air filter, downpipe and a sports catalyst (or the catalyst removed for motorsport use). The Stage 2 remap will help to give increases of 55bhp at 5504rpm over the standard engine and 86Nm, again above the factory engine.

In addition to the extra power and torque, the Stage 2 software will also address the ‘Check Engine’ light which could result from adding a sports catalyst or removing it altogether and will remove the speed limit for motorsport use. Also for motorsport use, on manual cars, the rev limit can be increased as well.
Either conversion is carried out by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network and typically takes around an hour. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect. The cost of the Stage 1 remap is £399 including VAT and labour while the cost of Stage 2 is a further £50, including VAT and labour or £449 if applied to a standard car. Both conversions are covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
