So after my first trip to the dyno which was a flop, I figured out how to put Austin in dyno mode so we could get the chart done. Then it was back to the dyno for Mini JCW F56 Dyno Part 2.
Before we jump into dyno tings, I’m curious. Complete the poll below and let me know what you guys think is more important…. Torque or horsepower? You can also drop a comment below to tell me why you chose one over the other.
Dyno Mode Activate
Now lets get on with dyno tings as promised. Below is a really quick video showing how I put Austin in Dyno mode. As it turns out, this works for all model minis and BMWs as well.
Mini Dyno: Take two
Once the mini was in dyno mode. I was ready to go… again. But was Austin?
We calibrated the RPM gauge with the dyno at 3000RPM. We did the dyno twice; first in 4th gear and again in 3rd. The pulls were clean with little error. Watch the video below to see how much power Austin made.
Soooooo, yes yes, I was a little disappointed with the power since on paper the Mini should make up 228hp/320nm from factory. However, there may be a bunch of factors that contributed to Austin not getting full power, including gas type, drivetrain loss etc etc.
I will be speaking to my next bestie (GOOGLE) about ways to get maximum power from Austin without doing a stage one upgrade. I know I want to try Boostane to see if that will make a difference and maybe do a Mini JCW F56 dyno part 3. If you know any tricks to power up without an ECU upgrade, drop a link below.
I will keep you guys posted on the results of the poll and what I’ll be doing next with Austin.
If you haven’t done the poll, it’s not too late or you can comment below and let me know what you guys think is more important…. Torque or horsepower?
