The Mini Cooper JCW featuring the 1.6L turbocharged engine is a load of fun to drive. Doing our simple to install ECU flash can take your Mini from an already nimble driving machine to a powerful wheel spinning vehicle. The VR Tuned ECU flash adds more horsepower and torque. The driving characteristics are vastly improved while providing you additional benefits that your Turbo Mini craves for. The biggest difference when you flash your Mini is the overall improvement of the power curve. Your Mini will have much better throttle response no matter what type of transmission you have. Where your Mini is sluggish off the line, your newly flashed Mini picks up right away and pulls harder through the mid and top end RPM range.

VRTuned.com is the off shoot of globally known, high performance retail parts specialists, Vivid Racing. Vivid Racing has been in business since 2001 and has worked with customers all over the world. In 2005, Vivid Racing got started in the Porsche market with their 2000 Porsche 996 Carrera. In addition to building this project car with selected vendor partners, Vivid Racing also began manufacturing products through it's sister company Agency Power. Having had success in the popular tuning chassis' such as the Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi EVO, and BMW M3, this was a natural progression of expansion in our repertoire of vehicles. As the tuning market boomed extensively in the early 2000's, Vivid Racing established a very strong prescence online and throughout vehicle communities. When the recession came, Vivid Racing continued to grow and focus on the development of it's products, distribution network, and most importantly, its customers. The diversity of vehicle products and services has allowed Vivid Racing to continue to strive for excellence while maintaining exceptional growth. ECU tuning has always been an extremely important part of modifying and building vehicles. This is essentially the glue that brings the performance out of aftermarket products and packages. With this next stage in the companies footprint, VRTuned.com was proudly launched in January 2014.
As the tuning industries tools became more accessible, so has the ability to partner and work with individuals to offer a unique service with added value. Working with several tuning companies over the years, we have experienced the upsides and downsides of the ECU tuning world. As it is our mission to offer unparallelled customer service and support, it is equally important to offer a great product that is tested, convenient to use, and priced within reason for the current demographic. With a Mustang All Wheel Drive Dynamometer in-house at our Gilbert, Arizona facility, we have spent countless hours testing tuned files, the affects of different vehicle modifications, and learning how vehicles react to our changes. But most importantly, our product confidence comes in that we have owned these vehicles, daily driven these vehicles, raced these vehicles, and understand what the consumer is looking for.
