Default choosing an ECU tuning house - 25th September 2015, 04:59 AM

When deciding to tuning the ECU of the mini, what should one keep in mind in order to select the best ECU tuning house? For example, for me, its a plus to be able to toggle between the stock and the tuning maps that have been programmed in the mini. What else should i be looking for?

Manic motorsports with SPS switch! simply the best results and versatility at the same time....however is by far the most expensive solution in the market! + i dont know if they have official dealers in Greece!

Yeah they do have dealers in Greece, but, what makes a tune a great one? What are the characteristics of the manic tune that distinguish it from the rest?

huge difference performance-wise, you can feel that the car pulls much better either on low or high revs, i am not looking at the numbers (hp) only!....initially, i had my car remapped by p-torque --- but after hearing so positive comments, i tried manic remap which made the trick!

A good tuning house needs a good product, a track record, a loyal customer base and a good reputation. And a dyno. These things can be hard to find, but it's probably worth the search.

What do you mean by...
a) good product
b) loyal customer base

He means proven results that deliver what they promise, and customers who will continue to go back to them.
