That's fantastic news! Will there be any releases noting any differences in the new software vs the old version?

I apologize for being a PITA, I'm just a very enthusiastic DIY'er who loves to have more options with the factory ecu!

  2. In exchange, we will send you a NEW FA53 MiniPort (and keeping the old one as a core)
  3. This new MINIPort will be able to be loaded onto ONE (1) Vehicle
  4. The new owner can then load FA53 onto his ECU and tune it himself or have his tuner of choice to perform the custom tuning.
  5. The exchange fee is $350
  6. Return Shipping and Insurance is $20 for Conti-USA (or provide your own prepaid shipping label).
***NOTE: This exchange does NOT include any CRM (Custom Remote Mapping) Service***

Regards,
BT Support Team.

Just to be clear, on one of the earlier posts it says it is $100 to unpair it from an ECU. Is it correct in saying that it is now $350?

Injector Firing Time

I couldn't find in the tune where you specify at what point in the intake cycle that the injector opens. Is this one of the missing tables? Or did I miss it?

I assume advancing the cam is compensated for using the cam position sensor. But how does the tune understand when you change the intake duration or the LSA, and adjust the point when the injector opens (if necessary)?

These guys are MIA. The support forum is a ghost town. Best I can tell the only thing they've really figured out is how to dyno tune at WOT. Everything else is proceed with caution.

Link G4 is going in the car...

Hmmm, I've had no problems, I can't speak to contact through the forum, but we've been tuning my car with no issues. (except delays on my end)
And they've addresses everything from idle to every day driving to WOT.
This is with street tuning (which I prefer), I don't know how remote dyno sessions would go. But as usual, I'm quite happy with my results.

As far as support on the forum, it depends on what your asking. The forum itself is basically just for customers and users, the ByteTronik team itself won't give out free tuning instructions, all of that would have to come from the users, unfortunately Siemens tuning is fairly complicated and most of users just let the team do the tuning. So unfortunately, technical tuning info can be scarce.

For most of us, it's basically ended up being the same as any remote tune, from these guys, Jan or anyone, follow the instructions given by the tuner and let them handle the tuning.

Just a FYI: If you are considering buying a second-hand FA53 kit, please ask the seller to provide you with the current license info to verify that the unit is "unmarried"... or you can PM us for assistance.

i actually purchased to FA53 couple months ago and got my stage rally car custom tuned.
the thing went absolutely crazy, more torque than i could handle lol.
went off the road and hit a huge rock and DNF'd
oh and yeah, i entertained spectators with pops and bungs.
not sure about flames because i looked forward... mostly.
but next time i'll ask my co-driver to run behind the car and look at the exhaust!

The FA53 is tied in with the MINIPort hardware. All the features of FA will only be active once the hardware module (MINIPort) is connected to the PC.

Excellent price considering the injectors and pigtails come along for the ride.

Yeah I got everything to work no problem I was just looking for that forum because i had found it earlier before i got the MINIPORT .
This thing worked AWESOME. Got this car with a bunch of aftermarket stuff already on it and an engine light that would not go out without
a propper tune. Its running great now and going for inspection today Would have been SO SCREWED without this thing would have had a worthless freaking car that couldn't pass inspection. thank you for excellent work!

550cc injectors

Will the injectors with the pigtail fit well under the tight confine without the need to shim up the intercooler with washers etc?

I have watched the Youtube video and see that the 550cc injectors are twin beam just like the stock and JCW. Are these the same injectors?

The pigtails will fit fine, they have extended plug in leads so just fold the leads under the fuel rail.

The Bosch 550s that we sell are the same ones that we've been selling since 2009. The pigtails work much better than the adapter connectors that other companies are using...

As stated above, the pigtails are high quality and tuck nicely under the fuel rail.
The injectors as well, high quality with flawless performance, the set I had before upgrading to the 650's had about 120k on them, and someone else is now using them.

Another thing about the quality of the injectors that the ByteTronik team offers is fuel economy, while a major portion of my fuel economy came from the quality of the ByteTronik tune, if the injector spray pattern isn't correct for the application, you're not going to get proper atomization and efficient burn, and you absolutely do with these. Even with all of my mods, I got 26.5 everyday, and avg'd 29.7 to and from MOTD (31.4 if I kept it under 70)

I downloaded the SW and demo file, and found it is all mirror image Japanese like in Matrix.

I figure I want a safe starting point and then start poking to see what make the Mini tick. Mini is so happy it's doing cartwheels.

I want the data logging capability.
