LOL, I don't get it. Why not just get the dealer-installed supercharger upgrade? That'll take a Cooper S from 160hp to 200hp. Oh well.

we're talking ***ORIGINAL*** Mini's here not the BMW kind....
as specs on the page state...
160+hp for a sub 2000 lb car=
0-60 in 5 sec...

ps... the new MINI hood/front clip opens backwards... the pic above has it opening normally thus its got to be the original and not the imposter

Honduh power plant in anything other than a Honduh or Acura=super gay. There is plenty available for the original Mini without bastardizing it.

I really dont understand this "engine brand loyalty" that people seem to have. an engine is an engine is an engine. he could change the valve cover, and you wouldnt have a clue what type of motor it was unless you really got up on it and recognized the honda block stamp. if the motor fits and runs well, and meets the owner's requirements, does it really matter what name it has on it? the coopers weight seems to justify the use of a "low" torque motor even more.
