  1. Question: I understand that the base tune for the MINI Cooper is based on a Stock JCW tune, is this accurate? If so how close is the base tune? I bought another MINI and it is STOCK, except for a 15% pulley and a header, can I install the ECU, Can WideBand/Lambda Sensor and the base tune and drive the car to the tuner?
  2. Getting pretty close now - got the 440cc injectors and I made up the harness for the CAN Lambda
  3. AdamW Thank you for the reply. I want to make sure that I understand correctly and that I am doing the best install I can. I drop the MINI+ ECU in the MINI, wire in the CAN Wideband using the CAN connection wire to the MINI+ board. I can put an OBDII factory connector on the end of the chain. Set the ECU to the correct communication speed so that it can talk to the Bluetooth dongle on the OBDII connector to talk to the Garmin Camera. Will the ECU transmit the data to the Bluetooth? Speed, RPM etc. Can I power the CAN Wideband from the ECU OBDII port 12v power? If not can I switch the relay from that port?
  4. AdamW I just got another MINI and I ordered (and received) a new Link ECU MINI+. I also ordered and got the Link CAN Wideband (with the Can to JST Connector and Field Install-able CAN cable). I like SnowMansGarage would like to connect my Factory OBDII port on the MINI so I can use my Bluetooth Data and camera setup, how would I wire in the Wideband to interface with the cars CAN/OBDII data and the wideband? Am I able to just tag on the lines or does it need to be its own CAN connection?
  5. Scott I sent the files via email
  6. Question: I have my unit installed. But the AC is not working correctly - the G+ shows it calling for AC, but its not turning on the compressor. The AC worked perfect before with the stock ECU. Fan turns on and all other speed controls work but not the AC Compressor does not do anything. Once in a while it will turn on for about 20 secs and then stop. This is a very important function as I live in Florida its hot as hell and rains all the time, so driving in the heat with fogged up windows is unacceptable.
  7. I would like to see a pre-configuration for the Zeitronix WideBand Gauges: http://www.zeitronix.com/ The Z3-2 and the Zt-3 (which are basically the same device).
  8. OK so with the information you provided and the searching of the google I found this: Is the opening closing time the info I am after or the offset. Thank you Simon for the help.
  9. Scott I have been watching the YouTube Videos for setting up the I88 G+ using the Link software, you make mention of having the correct data for the Injectors. I have not been able to find the data on my injectors: Siemens / Deka 04891574AB the data I have is as follows: Siemens DEKA 46lb/hour with EV6 / USCAR Connector - Direct fit for SRT , LS2 & LS7 Siemens DEKA High Impedance Injectors These injectors flow 46.5 lbs/hr at 43.5 PSI ( 3 BAR ) and much more at higher PSI! In addition, these units are high-impedance. Despite the high flow rate, they are linear and controllable at low pulse widths and have been used in ULEV applications! This allows you to use a larger injector than normally possible without hurting idle and low speed driveability. Adding to the flexibility of application, these units are high-impedance; making them compatible with most ECUs, while delivering the most flow available in a High-Impedance injector. These injectors represent the most current Siemens DEKA engineering and are used on many high power turbo and supercharged oem applications. These injectors are able to function at high fuel pressures and don’t exhibit the high fuel pressure handling problems found with many other high flow high-impedance injectors. This makes these injectors very well suited to turbocharged and supercharged applications that see high fuel system pressures and in fact, that is exactly what they were designed for! Engine performance and running quality are enhanced through the optimized spray pattern. Unlike competitors “pencil stream” high flow injectors; these High Flow injectors utilize a multi-orifice tip for improved mixture preparation and atomization. This results in lower BSFC and better idle quality than many injectors with less flow. Features: Genuine, reliable Siemens InjectorsExcellent response characteristicsRobust DesignHigh ImpedanceLow Impedance performance characteristics with High Impedance CompatibilitySpecifications: Coil Resistance: 12 Ohms (This high-impedance injector will work with all factory ECM/PCM injector drivers)Gain: 0.75Spray Pattern: ConeElectrical Connector: USCAR (New-style V=EV6 / Oval / LS2)Fitted with Viton upper and lower o-rings.Static Flow Rate @ 43.5PSI (300kPa): 46.5 lb/hr = 5.86g/s = 478cc/min (+/-3%)Static Flow Rate @ 58.0PSI (400kPa): 53.7 lb/hr = 6.77g/s = 552cc/min (+/-3%)Dynamic Flow Rate 2.5ms PW @ 100Hz (400kPa): 11.42mg/pulse +/-4%But I dont think I am getting all the information that the ECU wants to get the most from the setup, can you help with the information that the Link Software wants?

  10. I am going to be installing a ViPec i88 and I would like some features, I have a tuner to do the tuning of the car but it would be great to have the extra information to help the tuner achieve the goals I would like. This will be in a 2005 MINI Cooper S using the ViPec i88 MINI R53 ECU. I also have the AUX cable. Cruise Control - I know that the steering wheel controls dont work, so what is the best way to wire this up and what inputs on the cabling do it use? Water Methanol / Control and Map - I am using an AquaMist HFS-3 W/M kit I currently have it wired as: ViPec Aux1 wired to Green HFS-3 Injector Duty Cycle InputViPec DI8 to Orange Failsafe Wire on HFS-3. Is there anything special that needs to be known or done? Air Conditioning - Anything special that needs to be known or done for configuration? Launch Control - I would like to set the Launch Control up more to make it POP and Backfire at say 3k RPMs, I dont really race the car, so I want more for show, what should be done to achieve more pop and maybe a little flame out the tail pipe? Pop & Burble - MINIs came from the factory with a Pop & Burble when letting off the gas pedal and/or decelerating? I understand that this has something to do with 'over run'. I do not claim to know what that is, but is there a way to recreate it in the tune? I am not sure if it matters but I am using Analog Volt 10 (brown) for the wideband O² sensor input. Last question, can you have the K-Line and CAN both on the OBDII connector? I have a Garmin Virb XE that has a module that plugs into the OBDII to read data from the ECU and sync's and store that with the video. I would like to be able to read the ECU data still.
  11. Scott Today, I took the car to another tuner / mechanic. The tuner started work on the car with the vipec installed and he knew there was a problem. With some basic trouble shooting we found out that the ignitor for cylinder(s) 2/3 was not working. When I got home I opened the ECU up to remove the AUX cable, and I notice almost immediately that one of the transistors was not mounted correctly. So I sent in emails and posted on the vipec facebook page. I got nothing back from the emails, and I got a dumb ass reply on Fb that something is 'drawing to much current'. This thing has never worked right, and I am getting little to no support. There does not seem to be a way to get in contact with anyone quickly, and its funny on Fb the person that responded did not bother to try and contact me to help. (Go ViPec) So I am stuck with this POS ECU that I now have almost 2k$US invested in and its a paperweight. Its never worked right, and if there is a problem that can be fixed I would really appreciate if someone from tech would get in contact with me. Extremely UnHappy
  12. Scott Let me start by saying thanx for the quick response. I have run into another problem, the tuner and seller of the Vipec has starting tuning the car. It now sounds and runs like absolute shit (sounds like 3 cylinders). So I took the ViPec out and put the stock ECU back in the car, the car starts and runs fine, I did this to make sure that something is not wrong with the car/engine. After establishing this, I then put the ViPec back and reset it to stock, and then loaded the R53 ViPec Base Tune on the ECU, it starts and runs like shit again, which was not the case when I started this project it started right up and ran/idle. So is the a way to test the ECU to make sure nothing has gone wrong with it? What is the procedure to completely reset it to stock? Cooper
  13. Scott Tonight we got to trying to tune the car some, I am using a Zeitronix Zt-3 Wideband, there is not a default configuration for this WideBand. I have it connected to An10 (Brown Wire) the information provided by Zeitronix is as follows: Zt-3Inputs/Ouputs Signals Range Bosch Wideband O2 Sensor Lamda 1.43 to 0.64 Analog Wideband Output Signal (configurable Voltage vs AFR) Analog Output 0-5v How should I be setting up the input and its range?
  14. OK new questions as I have my unit in hand and I am getting it all setup, so here are my questions. FIRST: I am looking for a US Dealer for some accessories, but each time I click USA under the DEALER Listings on the main ViPEC.com Page it ask me for a Login and Password. But I dont have one nor is there a provision to request one. Lets fix this! Second: I want to wire in the CAN lines, it seems the best way to do this is to use the PCB to CAN cable (Part # CANPCB) and the Can Extension (Part # CANEXT) - So I can cut the end off the extension and wire the CAN Hi and CAN Lo in to the OBDII connector. Side note, I was told I could just add the wires into the factory/OEM harness Pins 110 and Pin 111. I think this is really possible as the female side of the pins are not in the factory harness side at the ECU, This is why I think using the CANPCB cable would be best. If I am wrong please correct me.
  15. I just bought my i88, and its on it way to me. I have a couple questions about retaining some of the Factory Function of my MINI. I have the following features that I would love to retain: Chrono Pak GaugeAir ConCruise ControlI understand that the AirConditioning will still work with the auto Control setup (which is in my car), is this correct? Cruise Control - Is there a way to use the factory buttons on the Steering Wheel? Is there going to be an update that will make the Chrono Gauges work? The car is a full build: Block from the 2006 MINI Cooper SCrank – Factory (but machined and polished)RMW RodsRMW Pistons 77.5mmRMW Big Valve HeadRMW 450cc Injectors (aka Doge SRT4 Injectors)RMW Camshaft (Dominator)RMW Baffled Oil PanKing Race Main BearingsKing Race Rod BearingsATI Crank Damper17% WayMotorWorks Supercharger PulleyRMW Header (with Catalytic)JCW ExhaustGTT Stealth Cold Air IntakeAquaMist Water Methanol Injection SystemMC40 Style Gauge Mount (AquaMist Gauge/Controller & Boost Gauge)Wayland Shift Knob (thank the wife for this one)JCW SpringsJCW ShockR56 Rear Trailing Arms (GP style)R56 Front BrakesR56 Front Rotors Drilled & SlottedBBS/MINI R90 WheelsNM adjustable Lower Control ArmsHotchkis 22mm Hollow Rear Sawy BarPowerFlex Rear Bushings for the R56 Trailing ArmsPower Flex Front Lower Control Arm BushingsPower Flex Lower Engine Mount Bushing Also is there a special way to wire in the water/meth control to the ECU?
