I just watched the video that Chris Sneed made about tuning, does that mean that I have to put my Mini on a dyno?

With the bytetronik kit, no you don't need a dyno, that is up to you if you want to make a run on the dyno before your tuning/mods to check the power the car is making and then after final tune you can go back to the same dyno and check what your final power is to see your gains, but that is optional.. The bytetronik tuning process and datalogging happens on the road, no dyno at all.

No dyno is needed with our remote tuning b/c we have a the ability to data log using the MINIPort hardware module. You do need to have an Innovate Wide band installed on your car so it can log AFR readings also.

DataViewer software for viewing CSV logs.

We do offer the DataViewer program to view CSV logs. Cost is $75 for FA53 customers.


Sample screen shot below:

Send us an email along with your completed CRM checklist (which can be found in the download section on our site). In order for the CRM you'll need to install the Innovate AFR kit and provide us with logs from your Mini.

I am, and have been since mid 2011 or so, it's been functioning perfect, with absolutely no issues at all.

FA is what we've used to tune my turbo conversion as well, without the need to go to a stand alone ECU.

This is normal, mine does the same exact thing, with no issues or codes.

That is normal behavior during engine braking. It is odd that you do not know that.

Besides the engine being lean on deceleration due to the drop in fuel, when you let off the accelerator there's an immediate but short change in pressure in the exhaust causing a slight vacuum during transition, the gauge reads this as lean because of the lack of fuel and pressure, this is why you'll see it max out to -22.4 and then transition down as it returns to normal.

The Bytetronik Team is working hard to release a new update for FullAccess FA53 for MINI R50/R52/R53 soon in a couple of months. We are adding new maps, using the original Siemens map names and acronyms. The update will only feature Siemens VDO ECU's only at this time. From late 2005 to 2008. The older MINI vehicles will use the older map versions. Customers with older Siemens (black cover) ECU will have an option to upgrade their ECU's to the newer Siemens VDO ECUs that are used in the late 2005 to 2008 models.

The reasoning for this, the older Siemens ECU are discontinued and obsolete from BMW, and secondly the new Siemens VDO has better reworked algorithms, more 1D values, 2D tables and 3D maps for better control and mapping for those high modded and high horsepower builds using the stock ECU such as (turbo kit conversions)

Contact us for via email on our website for faster and more information.We've added a couple of screenshots for preview....
