When we talk about chiptuning a car (remap), we mean that we adjust the software of your BMW or Mini. This allows us to change the parameters of the engine management system, for an example the fuel injection system, ignition and turbo pressure. We always stay within the limits of the engine, which allows you to enjoy maximum performance under safe engine conditions.
Looking for more performance but do you still have warranty on your car? We developed the iTronic engine controller specifically to be untraceable in the software of the car, just remove the iTronic before you visit your BMW dealer, and your good to go. This external tuning device works together with the ECU of the car and adds around 35 to 75 horsepower to your car’s stock performance, and it will do so safely. The iTronic can be turned on/off with your steering wheel.
The iTronic is an highly advanced engine controller that works simultaneously with the original ECU. It connects with a couple of sensors from the car, including the mass airflow sensor and CAN connection. This allows us to read a lot of data of the car, for example RPM, temperatures and pedal position. Due to the CAN connection you can also turn the iTronic ON/OFF by the RES button on your steering wheel.
Most of the power boxes doesn’t have a good name in the tuning industry, usually because they don’t deliver what is promised. However there is a difference between tuning with a power box and our iTronic. The iTronic connects with more sensors than a regular power box, like the mass airflow sensor and the CAN-BUS connection. Thanks to these connections additional data, such as the throttle position, is available. We use this information to optimize the car’s software and increase the performance in a safe way.
The iTronic is plug and play and can be easily installed without a lot of technical know-how. We provide an installation manual when you purchase an iTronic, installation time takes around 30 minutes. Installation can also be done at one of our dealers, they will ask a small installation fee though.
The iTronic is specifically developed for cars that still have their warranty. It leaves no traces in the software of the car, and because it’s and external device it can be easily removed. Remove the iTronic properly, including the wiring harness, before you visit your BMW dealer and your good to go.
No, we don’t offer warranty on the engine after buying our iTronic. We don’t do this because we don’t know in what condition your engine is before you install the iTronic. However, we designed the iTronic to be completely harmless to the car and it’s engine. We do offer great aftersales services to our customers. If you have any problems with the iTronic we will do our best to offer all the help needed to solve the problems.
The iTronic comes with 2 years warranty on the components and the software, under normal use during the warranty period. We don’t cover problems that are caused by: conditions, malfunctions or damage not resulting from defects in material or workmanship.
The iTronic, and it’s wiring harness, are specific for each car model. The iTronic can be installed on another car with the same model and engine, but it cannot be installed on different models. Are you planning on buying a new BMW and want to keep your iTronic? Contact us about the possibilities!
Mosselman Turbo Systems has been the expert in BMW and Mini tuning for over 40 years. Due to our experience and expertise we know exactly how far we can go when we chiptune a car. Over the years we’ve constantly developed and thoroughly tested of our software mappings. We believe it’s very important that our software and performance products don’t have negative impact on the reliability of a car. That’s why made sure every upgrade we perform is completely safe and does not harm the car or it’s engine, if driven under normal conditions.
The fuel consumption after chip tuning will be a bit lower, if driven under normal circumstances. However, if you have more power and torque you will probably use it and this will increase the fuel consumption. You can save fuel with our chip tuning, but it all comes down to how good you are in controlling your right foot.
No, we don’t offer warranty on the engine after buying our chip tuning. We don’t do this because we don’t know how what happened with the car and engine before the chip tuning. Before we start with the tuning we will always read the ECU for fault codes and check the engine visually for possible problems. Due to our experience and expertise we know exactly how far we can go when we chiptune a car. We always stay within the limits of the engine, which allows you to enjoy maximum performance under safe engine conditions.
Chip tuning your car will take approximate 3-4 hours, including optional dyno runs. We have a waiting area with some magazines and coffee to make the waiting comfortable.
The iMoss is an OBD to USB programming device that can read and program ECU files and read/delete fault codes of the car. iMoss allows you to chiptune your car with a Mosselman remap by yourself, without visiting one of our dealers!
