Forgot to say that this was how it was at the fast show 13.3 at 103 with the m 45 registering 18 psi out of the supercharger with a kmt 13.20 percent pulley on.

Old red spec will be stock head cam manifold dave f 1320ecu
bollocks to that...:thumbup1:...

week one perhaps for a strip trip as a benchmark

You talking about old red...? With slicks I take it? So what power is it making now, any changes since then... good thing with ^^ is that you can stick on the sprintex and if you don't go quicker or better mph you'll know if the extra £3k outlay was worth it or not.

You worked out how much bhp the 1320 ecu gives you over the stock mynes ecu yet?

thats good to know. Was my only other thought to the testing of this kit!

Looking forward to the results now, And yeah, with the testing you have done prior we will know what power to expect from the kit!

"Great write up but missing imo the mowt important data, what did the inlet temps start at on both cars?"


"Very simple
Eaton started at hotter temps on every log they show "


The dyno numbers are corrected , for temperature,humidity,and pressure of the day so the output both torque and power also become relative
this is the purpose of the dyno ..
errors would only exist if there was temperature clipping and timing being pulled ie a very hot day and IAT got over the set limits
If this happened you would see it on the dyno plot ... you dont !!
The dyno is in California , not best known for its arctic conditions !! usually rather hot and there showed no temp clipping in either case ...
197 whp was the result on a stock test car with only the charger fitted , someone please tell me how in any shape or form this was a bad thing ....or indeed that it cant be improved upon greatly , or having a wide torque band is not good or having the chance of more boost is not a good thing or .. I give up ,
As a base kit it looks good , well engineered given the MINIs awful installation originally ,and can only get better ,well priced too but I suspect in the UK they should offer a credit facility , Monthly payments for the win -lol


What colour wheels should I get ?::getcoat::
you honestly can't read their data?
no surprise there

numerous ones.. nice to confirm how a nice product sales! :)

get the dyno mr no data! lol it may take you up to 8 months to complete reading it.. similar to your remote tuning duration time!!!! loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool


you mean like this?

Hi Jan, guess you remember me! got a camshaft, header and injectors from you almost one year ago! :)
i am really happy with my items.. though i did a change to my car.. and i am facing quite a problem right now..
Thought you could give me some advice!
i installed another head at my mini... to be more specific i got a used Tpr1 head.. (wish i could get the rmw head..but this is for feature... i have to be patient till a get a job!)
anyway.. i got the car and the car is really poor on power.. :( seems something is wrong.. even if the head was not that good i would not have a decrease in power! anyway spoke with mike as well..
we did a cylinder compression test and i got 175psi in each cylinder.. Mike sais that it is a bit on the high side.. and he is afraid that the camshaft is installed incorrectly on tooth advanced.. said that newman cams raise the cylinder pressure if they are installed advanced.. and that the ecu cuts timing so as to save the engine from too much compression...
i have a log from my plx device.. one log is done with then new setup and i am accelerating at wot with 3rd gear.. and the other one is with the previous setup and accelarating at wot with 4th gear..

i would be really grateful if you could give me your opinion-help...
i am getting ready to check the camshaft again tomorrow...
if it is ok guess i need a retune right?! (though i guess i need one one way or another!) maybe it is time for that remote tuning we were talking!!!


Thanks in advance!

You are SO PATHETIC!!!
first of all get my info out.. Didn't ask for permission to publish my name!

Second a year ago upon installation yes i had a problem.. I contacted you to get an opinion since you had sold a kit to me before.. You never gave the help back!
Fortunately Thumper helped me out, Mike @ mynes as well. Also i contacted dman with similar messege .. He can confirm..
The problem was on the pulley tensioner safety..
While fixed car performed as it should.. Then i continued searching and reading.. Did some dynos and tests.. Figured out how fake can some people be!!!! (yes you)
Finally i removed the header almost everyone accused for loosing power and that supposed 440!
Am really sorry for you..

If you continue you may want to inform people for the Greek mini you got paid to tune.. !!!

Go get a life ...

1. As am a person that stands for what says!


2. my only, maybe, mistake was that i indeed said on our previous communications that it would be better to send it over to my "cousin".. the way i named Matt cousin is that i felt that probably it would be more inconvenient to say to a salesman send it over a friend.. wanted it to make him feel that he is a person close to me and someone whom i trust...

3. I do not really find what is so bad about that.. anyway.. your problem...

4. I NEVER told Jeff not to charge me duties.. asked him not to state the real price while sending via usps.. told you once more, you did that for me and other customers in Greece!.. except if you're illegal.. anyway it is ok for me that Jeff is legal and i accepted his refusal.

5. Yes my third proposal was to send over to Mike Thumper.. (you see some guys are Serious and trustful) .. in my point of view when i asked Jeff to send over Usa, he should have advised me that there are specific taxes on certain states.. before accepting my payment.. he did not.. i was out of the calculated budget.. always based on his totals!
point 1: while honorable, your emails say different

2. it wasn't "maybe" a mistake........ it was a flat out lie................

3. when you lie repeatedly about this I can see why this isnt a "big deal to you"

4. this one should clear things up.......

Ok, but really i believe it is wrong.. See that i want to buy from you.. None told me not even a bad word for you.. And i had no idea.. Just asked you to help me escape the greek stupid tax system.. How would it sound if you were in my shoes and you had to pay almost 400 taxes on this item (if stated at real price)
Anyway.. I am sorry that your bad relationship whiy people i know put me back on plans and made you not willing to help..
Thanks

5. Jeff made a mistake in not seeing the address you selected to YOUR "COUSIN" Matt Richter in the first place.......he tried to correct it............ I see nothing wrong with that.

here is a RMW street header and cam on a GP on same dyno



no tune either..............

so with a tune on a GP you would have been same same hp as the head you put on

same findings as we have found here in the US

was that quick enough for you?

I remember one of the most respected mini tuners in the world saying "why are you still messing about trying to find little gains here and there with superchargers, just turbo it already!"
why would you turbo it when it's slower than a supercharger?

George.. the Newman cam installed 1 tooth off will flat ass kill your topend.. The Newman cam needs to be install straight up ( no advance or retard) as it is cut 'advanced' already..

Dman , back a few years ago, tried to advance the Newman in the land of Oz, when I was working with changing cam phase on the OEM camshaft.. he said they lost a lot of power, set the cam back to 0 and it rocks. This was a while ago...

Email me if there is an issue with this.. as with this SC thread, it seens to go side ways pretty easily!! LOL

Just me.......................................

Criminy Jan, you really are scum. I have NO clue how and why anyone would ever want to have any dealings with you. To know it's so simple for you to take your business with individuals and make it public to then attack and hurt them, is unthinkable, really unbelievable.

You leave such a trail of disaster behind you, and have so for so many years. The people who were first in business with you no longer want anything to do with you, and that pattern continues day to day to day. You leave little to absolutely NO room for someone to congratulate you if even they chose to. Your already in your own ticker tape parade congratulating yourself, with rifle in hand no less.

I have been around racing professionals for most of my life. Chassis builders, engine builder, suspension specialist and just good all around crew, and NEVER have I heard the kind of crap out of them that we in the Mini world have to hear from you. You make the people who TRULY understand what it takes sick to their stomachs. So, we have a choice. We deal with your BS ad nauseam,, or we just say, "Fuck the Mini world" and move on. Unfortunately most all of the BEST out there have chosen the latter.
You are nothing more then a "stepping stone" Jan. Just a low life beginner performance guy that is really really good at selling himself to those that have no clue who you really are. Once they learn, and they grow more knowledgeable about the racing industry, they move on from you onto others that know how to behave, to respect their customers for who they are.
You make the Mini cooper performance world here in the States look ridiculous. It's embarrassing for the rest of us that know how to act and understand "boundaries".

In time it could turn out to be the first mod recommend to do to a Cooper S, but until its tested we don't yet know where it will fit in to the tuning scene as we've got one tuner saying its junk on track with a smaller pulley but fine as a street application. The other has shown the gains so far on the dyno vs a stock 15% Mini.
Bigshow, why don't you ask Jan/Ian to post up the dyno graph of their Sprintex making 271whp (on a dynojet) and the subsequent mod that took it to 290whp? They have that data but they choose not to publish it... why is that, you think? Instead, the only word coming out from that side is HOT... :confused1:

FYI, i have a copy of that dyno graph from Jan's testing, but it's not my time or place to publish that info b/c its not my data.

I remember one of the most respected mini tuners in the world saying "why are you still messing about trying to find little gains here and there with superchargers, just turbo it already!"
Hmmm, this is simple question to answer. As a matter of fact, you've answered it yourself in another post. It all comes down to $$$ per HP. On the M45, you're limited to 250/260whp and anything beyond that would not be possible unless you go NOS. But with the advance in technology, Sprintex has provided that middle ground between M45 and Turbo.

If $ was no object, then sure, Turbo is still the way to go (for max HP and if you didn't have to deal with SMOG Inspections). Even Jan has realized that and has stepped into the Rotrex (basically a "belt-driven turbo"). And with any turbo or Rotrex conversion, it would be nearly impossible to get that setup for under $7k retail...

... stock mynes ecu yet?
No disrespect Bigshow but you should stop posting if you can't get your facts straight.

What the heck is a 'stock mynes ecu'? Don't make up stuff that doesn't exist and attach our name to it. Much oblige.

cheers.

Part 1

Jan/Ian - Please can you post up your sprintex graph/graphs?

Mike - Please can you post the start temps for both the M45 and Sprintex?

Part 2 -

So you're looking to sell a circa 250whp, 300whp and 350whp conversion i.e. M45 then Sprintex then Turbo?

Part 3 -

Wind ya fucking neck in!!

1320 ECU versus a STOCK ECU with Mynes tune!!!

The question was what's the difference/benefits between going from one to the other!
