    MINI Cooper s Wideband sensor wiring

    I use the MTX-L with the MiniLink G4+ on my 2003 R53. RED wire to switched 12V BLACK & WHITE wires to GND YELLOW to Pin 9 (AN Volt 7)
  2. I just fired my new MINI R53 with G4+ MINILINK. I made a bunch of changes to the base map to suit the new motor configuration. Car starts and idles fine. Have done some no load ring breakin. Been verifying sensor reading and will start tuning Knock Control next. The base map uses Analog Temp #2 as Inlet Air Temp with Sensor Type set to Std Bosch NTC. I believe this is incorrect. With the car sitting cold. The ECT sensor and 4 EGT sensors read 24C while the IAT sensor reads 11C. Would trying the Bosch 0 280 130 017 work better, does anyone have a cal file, or do I need to create my own? BMW MINI 031 2nd Fire Up Tune.pclr log 2017-10-25 639pm.llg

    MINI Cooper R53 Knock Control Setup

    For a street car I would agree with you, but this ECU is for a race motor that will spend over 50% of its life at WOT. Knock Control is the final line of defense against race conditions not anticipated in the various trims, or variations in fuel.

    MINI Cooper R53 Knock Control Setup

    Well, this thing is worthless to me then. Does the new MINI plug in support knock?
  5. Hello, I have a G4 Plug-In (G4 Topboard Extreme, Firmware 4.10.2) for my 2003 MINI Cooper S, and I am setting up Knock Control. The diagram in PCLink Help labels Pin 8 as Knock 1, and it is the pin where the MINI Knock Sensor terminates. But when setting up Knock Control the only option is ON - DI Knk Interface. Is selecting ON - DI Knk Interface all I have to do? TIA Alan
