Chip Tuning Additional Control Units for Power Increase in MINI Clubman F54

 

The MINI Clubman is not just a compact car; it's a true automotive icon. Let's explore the fascinating engine configurations that have always attracted considerable interest and generated numerous requests for performance enhancement kits. Let's start with the 1500 Cooper engine, characterized by turbocharging and 136hp of maximum power and 220Nm of maximum torque. Already enticing values that become extraordinary with the intervention of CHIPBOX®. This device adjusts engine management parameters, giving the 1500 turbo a significant boost in horsepower and torque.

 

Moving on to the 2-liter common-rail diesel, which comes with a standard 150hp and a notable torque value of 330Nm. In this case too, CHIPBOX® makes a difference: the Cooper D equipped with this engine can reach around 180hp, offering significantly attractive performance. The Cooper S, equipped with a robust 2-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 192hp and 280Nm of maximum torque, boasts power comparable to the 190hp SD common-rail version, with an impressive maximum torque reaching 400Nm. The John Cooper Works version impresses with a power output of 231hp from its 2-liter turbocharged petrol engine. Even the smaller ONE and ONE D models are equipped with a 1500 petrol engine delivering 102hp and a 1500 turbodiesel engine delivering 116hp, respectively. On these units, SELETRON can significantly enhance performance, offering an upgrade that makes these MINIs even more exciting on the road.

With the introduction of the R55 version of the MINI Clubman, new perspectives emerge with different engine configurations. The Cooper D models can be equipped with a 2-liter engine delivering 111hp, or other units with a displacement of around 1.6 liters and power outputs of 110hp or 112hp. The SD version, on the other hand, adopts the 2-liter common-rail engine with 143hp and 305Nm of maximum torque, while the MINI One D is powered by a 1600 engine delivering 90hp. Significant increases in power and torque can be achieved with common-rail MINIs (some of which are derived from BMW engines), significantly improving acceleration and responsiveness, making the driving experience engaging. Switching to petrol engines, the MINI Cooper S (R55) models are equipped with a turbocharged 1600 engine with power outputs of 175hp or 184hp and a maximum torque of 240Nm.

The MINI One R55 models, with slightly lower power, feature petrol engines with displacements of 1.4 and 1.6 liters, in addition to the 1.6 common-rail engine delivering 90hp seen in other versions. It is important to emphasize that CHIPBOX® is shipped already programmed for the specific model of MINI on which it is to be installed. Installation is easy and does not require irreversible modifications, thanks to the plug-and-play kit that connects to the engine wiring with connectors similar to those of the original system. Without the need for mechanical modifications, the vehicle can be easily restored to stock conditions if necessary.
