Was the 126 bhp Tuning Kit for the MINI Cooper actually available in the US?
Answer
YES ... according to this Aftersales Business Development & Marketing MINI Dealer Bulletin from April 2004:
Quote:
Based on requests from MINI dealers, please find enclosed information about the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit for the MINI Cooper. We have a limited number of this kit available in the US.
The JCW kit is a complete performance package that is designed to take full advantage of the engine's design. The JCW Kit for the MINI Cooper includes a machined cylinder head for better airflow, “cat-back” exhaust system, air filter element and updated ECU programming. These carefully engineered performance modifications will bring the MINI Cooper to the 126hp horsepower level. The torque has been improved to 114 lbft.

As the kit delivers only a minor increase in horsepower and torque, the main benefit is the increased performance feel and mid range torque of the MINI Cooper.

###############

Wasn't there a 132 bhp Tuning Kit for the MINI Cooper?
Answer
YES ... as revealed in a November 2001 article in 4car.co.uk:
Quote:
The John Cooper Works MINI Cooper produces 132 bhp thanks to a replacement high-compression gas-flowed cylinder head and new free-flow intake and exhaust system. The modification has been developed by John Cooper Works Ltd, long-time suppliers of upgrades for Minis and of course, the company formed by the man responsible for the development of the original Mini Cooper.

These mods take the MINI Cooper’s torque output up to 119 lb ft/162 Nm at 5000 rpm, and mean that it can now accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.7 seconds. Its fuel consumption is 42.2 mpg and its carbon dioxide output 163 g/km. The John Cooper Works conversion takes the team six hours to complete, and the JCW cars can be distinguished by special badging, trim parts and a new exhaust finisher, as well as a special engine bay plate with unique number. The conversion costs Ł1,750 plus VAT and fitting.
Quote:
BUT... this kit never was authorized for worldwide distribution.
The kit included a replacement back box (muffler) section which required modifying the stock exhaust system. Instead MINI decided to use the Sports Cat-back Exhaust it was already offering as an option on the MINI Cooper and MINI One. This change in exhaust system was the reason the kit released worldwide had less power and didn't include a distinctive JCW exhaust tip.

This is a really neat kit that was hardly sold in the USA or the world one hell of a way to make your R50 unique!

Good luck with the sale!

Rumor has 26-30 kits in the US. I think its far less than that. No body knows what it is and its more rare than GP. Its pre GP. From what I can find at the dealership, this is the last one still uninstalled.

This kit would have been the ultimate dream for me when I had my Cooper, and the $3500 for the kit. Free bump and good luck with the sale. I hope this kit makes its way to a R50 somewhere.
