I see this is posted in 2nd Gen section but see the Mini used in reference is 3rd Gen and is a 2.0 F model. So is this new RPM tuning for R56's also?

my mistake it should be in the 3rd Generation but I do RPM Power for 2nd generation also. My Countryman and Audi RS7 are both on RPM stage 3

I asked about OBD, and it's only possible with the car in front of him. Wish there was an option for getting this in Ohio without shping the ECU. Are there other dealers?

Mario, any new word on remote tuning options? I canít find anything anywhere near me, and unfortunately cannot have the downtime of sending my ECU to someone. Please say you can flash a 2012 R60?

RPM Tune Stage 2

I am a recent convert to the Mini Cooper rage and recently purchased a 2008 R55 Clubman S. Was impressed by the power of a stock turbo but after visiting different forums realized more power was to be had. A common name in all the threads was Mario Palza as the go to person. Since I live on the central California coast, going to Mario was an easy decision. After installing a larger intercooler and catless downpipe we met halfway in Santa Barbara. Mario remapped the ECU with the RPM stage 2 program, installed cooler plugs and lowered thermostat temp. Power increase is substantial, probably around 230hp and 240lbs torque at rear wheels. Application of power during acceleration is smooth and progressive and yet very streetable for everyday use. Being a newbie to Minis Mario offered words of advice to educate me on the nuances of the Mini. Very pleased with the product and his service. Mario will not disappoint.

Thatís what Iím waiting not -so-patiently for, lol.
I donít want or have the option to send in my ECU, so I am waiting for Mario (hopefully) or somebody to be able to remotely tune my R60.

Sigh, I waited a long time and caved in and bought the Dinan Elite. It took years to crack the F56, then it was only manual no auto tranny. No remote tunes and now you have it.

Maybe next MINI!

Hi Minnie, owning a 2017 F57 S w/ auto trans and still educating myself on tuning upgrades, your post caught my attention as I'm considering a Dinan Elite. Do I understand you correctly that the Dinan Elite might not work on an F series car w/ an auto transmission?

As someone who wants to upgrade performance, I also worry about the effect a potential tuning may have on the auto trans longevity.

I wish Mario had a website that fully explains all his products and services. If he does, I can't find it.

Thanks. Contented

After talking with @MarioKart over e-mail, I'm excited to soon purchase his ceramic DP and more than likely an RPM tune. I just added my Alta intercooler + piping and had a K&N Typhoon intake for a while. The reason I'm waiting is just finances, but hopefully by the time I'm ready (likely a month) the remote flash will be possible.

Do you guys have any other performance suggestions? I plan on having a local exhaust shop fit me with a straight pipe from the DP back, but I have no idea what muffler/tips to go with - looking at relatively inexpensive options, but I've only heard the exhausts on youtube so I don't know what's bad or good.
