Yes, pretty much. They are both 4 cylinders and 1.6 liters. 

For the engine, the engine block, cylinder head, oil pan, oil pump, timing gear is the same between the Cooper and Cooper S. 

The crankshaft, rods, pistons, exhaust valves, and internal lubrication are different.

The engine block of the Cooper and the Cooper S may be very similar, but there are many differences internally, including materials, lubrication, and compression. Externally, almost everything that bolts onto the engine is different.

To answer your question, you 'can' physically bolt on the Cooper S supercharger onto the Cooper engine, but you will need to make massive changes to make it work. 

I recommend you trade up to a Cooper S - it will be less expensive, easier, and more reliable...
