I was lucky enough to be sent Wagner Tuning's new FMIC for the Pre-Facelift R56 Cooper S. In agreement of receiving the FMIC, I organised a days testing at 1320 to see how this performed against the stock FMIC and how it performed with a Map on it.
Here are some pics:

This project was meant to be different from my half arsed attempts in the past. The saxo's and the r5gtt's that went before it always ran out of money and were sold on before I had a chance to finish them. I've almost hit a wall with this one already but the mods will continue coming as long as...
