R53 MCS :) was created by HLG
So swifty has finally sold....& I picked up this on Monday evening ....

2005 facelift R53 Cooper S :D
Missed my R50 Mini so much & after changing my mind a million times I finally decided i'd be silly not to go back to what I loved the most.
File Attachment:


It already has a Miltek exhaust, pipercross airfilter, upgraded denso spark plugs & a reduced supercharger pulley, a nice start to a project :)
File Attachment:


Today a Mini friend of mine popped over & we swapped our headlights, he had joey'd Xenons & had standard ones , so it was a win win to be honest....

Also had a dig under the bonnet today to find out what Supercharger pulley had been put on it, turns out its this...
File Attachment:

Need to get a better photo though, as I did some research & turns out it could be a 15% or 17% either way its gained between 15-21 Bhp from it!

I didn't do it in the end, the place I used to work did it in the end XD

Super pleased with it, quite happy to leave it be for a little while now, time to save for some power gains :P
