Description

Mini Cooper S MK1 (R53) was launched in 2001 as the performance derivative of the premium B-Segment vehicle that the company developed and offered under BMW ownership. The John Cooper Works company also created a higher spec model – the Mini Cooper S Works.

The first JCW Tuning Kit to be made available for the Cooper S was an upgrade for the Cooper S, producing a total of 200 bhp (150 kW). Released in 2002, the kit consisted of Uprated cylinder head, gas-flowed and ported, 11% Reduction of the supercharger pulley size, making the same supercharger spin faster for a particular engine speed, 1-step colder, Colder Temperature Range spark plugs, Uprated exhaust system (maintaining the same header and catalytic converter), Remapped ECU, Decorative badges, individually numbered engine plate and certificate signed by Mike Cooper. At the time, the kit could not be factory-ordered, but had to be retrofitted at a Mini dealer, but from late 2005 the Cooper S could be ordered with the upgrade straight from factory.

In 2005, an additional upgrade was launched that increased power further to 210 bhp (160 kW), with Uprated injectors (380cc/min instead of 350 cc/min), Remapped ECU for the injectors and uprated air intake system and air filter. A “JCW Sound Kit” was made available at the same time, consisting of the cat-back exhaust and the air filter, giving a sportier exhaust note and a 3 bhp (2.2 kW) power increase for around €1100.
