About Us


MRC Tuning Limited is a tuning house based in Banbury, Oxfordshire. We pride ourselves on our technical knowledge and ability to do all of our mapping and testing in house.

Dougal Bennett and Mihnea Cotet opened the UK business in 2005. In 2010 MRC moved to new premises with 3 ramps, 4 work bays, a state of the art 4wd dynomometer. Since then we have expanded to 6 ramps and a new linked roller dynamometer.

Our resident tuner, Mihnea Cotet, has been at the forefront of tuning Bosch ECUs and VAG/Porsche for over 10 years. This means you get the very best map that is smooth, powerful and most importantly safe as designed by us.



  • Over the past 15 years, We've made our name with high performance Audis. The experience we've gained in these turbo charged cars is invaluable and welcome new challenges.
  • Recently we have produced in-house an R8 V8 Turbo conversion that has dynoed 850ps 1040nm. The car reliably has run 750ps 900nm and will do a 10second 1/4 mile time.
  • We have produced cars that run over 200mph proven and tested reliably at VMAX.
