    How'd the RMW Tuning Go?

    How the the RMW tuning session go in Thomasville? I haven't really seen people post about the experience. I'm sure it went well. I was wondering, I know it is a little late, but someone put up some dyno graphs!

    Re: How'd the RMW Tuning Go?

    Was planning on doing a lengthy "I'm back in my life" post in a week or two (working 14 hour days is AAAALMOST over, yay!!!). Was going to run through my last batch of mod work, the tune, and subsequent repair work from driving too agressive, haha.

    Re: How'd the RMW Tuning Go?

    We had a great time. It was quite a shop, everybody was professional and nice and we had a good time teasing each other and watching Jan work his magic.

    I have: '06 MCS, M7 pulley, Helix CAI, Invidia Exhaust, JCW 380cc and went from 187.4 hp, not bad as is, to 196.8 and 176 tq to 179.8 all across the band. As important to me, Jan moved the rev limiter, my nemesis, up to 7250 rpms and backed off the traction control so I don't bog down grabbing second and third any more. Here's the chart.

    '06 MCS CR/B "MINICHI" off to new home, Rota Slipstreams/S Drives for sale now...

    196.9 WHP and 186.3 lbft of torgue. Nice wide powerband and what Jan and I thought was huge a 14 lbft increase in torque where peak HP occurs. That's on a 96 degree day with 80% humidity. Big difference in the go go!

    The Mini is gone but not forgotten, what a ride it has been with the best people, the best Mini club and most fun little car I have ever owned!!!

    Re: How'd the RMW Tuning Go?

    Thanks. Give ya an idea of how much wider the powerband is: Pretune peak torque of 177 happened at 3600 RPM's. After the tune the torque now reaches that at 3200 RPM and exceeds the 177 all the way to 5300 RPM with the peak of 186.35 ocurring at 3900 RPM.
