Hello Everybody!

Are there any Mini Cooper R5* Tuners and users here?

What software do you use? Or do you have any plugin ECU's to recommend?

Thanks in advance and many greetings from Switzerland!


Hello this is the only ecu i have used for tuning 50-53 mini it works very well


This ECU is designed for the R50-R53 Tritec 1.6 SC engine.

Please check your pinout connector matches the header in the listed photo before purchasing.

This ECU works for manual transmissions only.

An XS Loom and 4 Bar Map Sensor highly recommended (sold separately).

Most factory features are supported.

Check the features tab for I/O expansion options

Suitable applications:

R50 –R53 MINI Hatch with the 1.6l SC engine

Chronopack dash option not currently supported

Regards Ross


Thanks for the reply! I haven't thought about the Link ECUs! Good idea!

Do you know if there is a Reflash option for this car? If yes what software?

Best regards.
