Link G4+ Mini Cooper S

Recommended Posts

HI Guys,

I'm gonna get straight to the point, I have a modified Mini Cooper S 2006 model. Long story short no garages, tuning company's or auto electricians can fix or connect to my standard mini ECU, this means they cannot read fault codes and also and more importantly it cant be dyno tuned or remapped..... My plan is to build a weekend/track car, I have taken the car as far as i can without having the car remapped, however the next stages are high lift cams, high flow head and inlet along with forged internals. 

What i want to know before i make a purchase is, will i be able to use the usb functionalities instead of the OBD port i.e. read and clear codes, remap the car etc. essentially im hoping that the Link ECU will be fully functional and useable without the OBD port.

Secondly will most/all/any tuning companies be able to work with it or does it need to go to a specialist tuner? I have spoken to one company and they have said they can work on the car no problems but because it only has a 'Base mini Map' when its plugged it that i will need to allow upto 10 hours for the to tune it..... which at £75 an hour is a lot....

which leads to to point 3.... the tuning company said that if i can get the ECU setup to run my uprated injectors before they get it this will knock a lot of time off the tuning session so, how hard is this to do yourself, if it is to hard to do a self tune then is there any places i can go on the interet and find someone who has similar modifications to me and download and then upload to the ECU meaning they would only need to fine tune on the dyno to make it unique to my car.

If i get the right information with regards to the above then i will be placing an order in the next coupld of weeks. fingers crossed this will finally fix my OBD to ECU issue.... so far I have spent over £2000 with various people and garages trying to get this fixed chopping and changing parts here and there, so I really hope this will be the cure!!!

Thanks for your help,

The ECU is easy to fit and setup, certainly if you purchased from me I could deliver an ECU preconfigured for your injectors.

you will also be able to connect yourself and look through settings from any windows 10 device.

Link is very easy to tune most dyno operators I know like it to tune because it’s logical and easy to learn. I woul stay clear of any timers who seen negative about Link if you do find one.

You can contact me direct through www.shopbhp.com if you need any more pre or post sales support regardless of who you choose to supply the ECU

Hi mate that sounds perfect. I did actually already emailed you guys but never got a reply. I'm happy to order from you guys though :) as long as the obd port is no longer required. I'll take one from you printed to take the injectors I have. Do you have any deals on them??
