Mito ECU remap in Australia
Hi everyone, Australian Mito owner here. Bought an 88KW Mito in 2009 as the dealer did a great price as they were not as popular as the Sport 114KW model which was the better seller and much more popular. Regretted this decision to buy this car fairly quickly as my 88KW version didn’t have enough go and detested the look of the tooth pick sized pipe sticking out the back called an exhaust system. Alfa Australia then discounted the Mito range in 2010 and dropped the 88KW version. So the 114KW model was then available for less than what I paid for mine not even a year later. Wasn’t happy at all about this at all; a good way for Alfa to lose customers. But loved driving my Mito though, as it drives and looks great. Was thinking about buying the new QV as mine is nearly out of warranty….. but unfortunately my discontinued engine version is now close to worthless as a trade.
So decided to go for an ECU remap and Remus exhaust instead, as they are more available in Brisbane now where I live. Apparently my engine is a detuned version of the 114KW. Remaps in Australia are certainly are not cheap, but cheaper than a new car that is for sure. Really impressed with the results, the company did a great job and the car runs faultlessly. The Mito is now a beast, loads more torque and performance. Think I am getting somewhere around 118k and 246NM of torque. The Remus exhaust looks awesome and a nice subtle tone without too much noise.
Has anyone else remapped these lower spec Mito’s and any tips for other performance enhancements?
