Big-Bore Power Units from MINI MANIA for the Classic Mini Cooper & Mini Cooper S

The "Ultimate Street Performance Engine" from Mini Mania is the result of 30+ years of building and racing our own Mini Coopers. Because drivability and reliability are of utmost importance in any Mini Cooper, only components from well-established suppliers are utilized to build our Mini motors. While the standard configuration is described here, power-units can be customized to meet your particular needs for your Mini Cooper. Just ask your friendly Mini Mania Sales Technician for a custom power-unit quote.

Engine blocks are cleaned, magnaflux'd, bored and painted. The Mini Cooper cylinder head is one of our special Aluminum heads, which is not only cast ported, but has hardened valve seats for use with unleaded fuels. The Mini motor uses squeeze cast Powermax 73.5mm pistons, which are specifically designed for this application. Elgin supplies the custom ground camshaft, which is driven by a new timing chain and gears.

Carburetion for the Mini motor is provided by a single rebuilt 1 3/4" HIF type carburetor on an aluminum manifold. A cone type K&N air filter is equipped too. You provide your own electrical bits (starter, generator or alternator), cooling system, tailpipe, and Mini! We can provide them too. Just ask us to include the bits in the quote for your new power-unit.

The built Mini Cooper engine is mated with a gearbox, with flywheel and clutch assemblies all in place. These late model Mini Cooper rod change transmissions are also caringly fully rebuilt and painted, and in the base configuration are assembled with a 3.44 final drive.

Optional kits to install the power-unit in earlier model Mini Coopers are available. An optional remote shift box can be equipped too.

Note: No core charge and call us if you are interested in 'trading-in' you old engine!

I know I have taken pains to explain that you don't have to have a 1380cc with very sporty cam profile and so on to have a decent, satisfyingly quick road car - but this reliability problem is absolute hogwash.
