Its technically possible, as the Cooper & One share many components, head and remap plus exhaust would all work, but the One tune, is different to the Cooper and JC G's wouldnt want to do iy , because they trade on the Cooper name I reckon, there would be a conflict.
There are quite a few after market chip products, Oneclick, Chiptuning, SuperChips etc. all will add power and are reversable, so shouldnt affect warranty, (insurance ???).
I've tried an upgrade to 140 Bhp, it really does make the car fly, but it was done by a German company who changed the head and exhaust as well as a remap, it had cooling mods as well and came in at nearly 3000 Euros, but it was highly professional and had dyno figures to prove it. Try OneClick first, and make sure you get the money back guarantee if you are not happy, its the simple option. Or Chiptuning , which I think is better, but its an opinion based on claims rather than actual experience.
If all goes according to plan I`ll be racing in next years JCC.
I am trying to get a sponsorship package together and on the basis of I`m gonna ask everyone, do you have any ideas or know any firms who might want to get involved ?
Come on guys ideas ++++++ needed.
I`ve a few organisations interested but just got to keep plugging away to get a firm commitment.
I spoke with a BMW mechanic who said they can tune the One to be the same as a Mini Cooper so at least that's a start - just an ECU thing I was told. I preume that most parts would be the same but there might be some of less quality. Best to check the engine part numbers that the JCW stuff will affect - if they are the same part numbers they might work?
If the BMW mechanic said that they COULD turn a One up to the same as a Cooper is that the same as saying that he WOULD do it? And if he did, what would be in the impact on the warranty/TLC as it would have been, by definition, done by BMW themselves and therefore it would not affect either???
Or was he just saying it as a hypothetical thing?
MINI One Convertible Hot Orange, Full Aero Kit, Heated Sports Seats, X-Lites, etc
when i had a mini one i spoke to jcw of east preston and he said no way to having a kit fitted we can tell a one to a cooper by the vin number plus i have driven a chiped one and a standard cooper and the cooper felt faster something to do with the gearbox gears on the final drive
