New To Cooper S

Hi All,

I am quite a new Cooper S owner.
I bought a 2005 with 60K on the clock as a bit of a toy.
Very happy with it, but it didn't take me long to start tuning it!!
I fitted an Oranje cold intake unit, Airtek intercooler and just had 1320 fit a 17% reduction supercharger pulley.
Still running the stock manifold and exhaust, but even so it pulled 192Bhp at the wheels on 1320's dyno.
It was running out of fuel high in the rpm (after 6000), so next upgrade before anything else will need to be higher flow injectors.

Cheers,

Gary.

how does 192BHP feel compared to what it was?

I had a Cooper S years ago and tuned it a bit. My current one came with JCW airbox and exhaust. All I've done is replace the filter element in the airbox with the GTT one I had from my old Copper S. Tempted by a new pulley, but need new bushes first and possibly a clutch to get rid of the knocking noise.

I can defiantly feel the difference to the std power. The increase in torque is very nice.
I took my missus out in the car after the pulley change and she nearly wet her pants!!
