I'm a Mini Owner again...

Several years ago I sold my MC40 and have really missed the car so I recently bought a 2002 S which has many parts and is much faster than my previous car. So I have some questions for you guys.
It has Eibach coilover suspension which will have to be raised as the rear is bottomed out. If anyone has any advise as to how far to thread the collars up I would appreciate it although I know every car is different.
The PO also stated it has an alta supercharger and pulley which I assumed was just the pulley as I wasnt aware of any aftermarket superchargers but the intercooler, air intake hose and filter is not stock for certain and there is a lot of blow off pressure noises, which sounds amazing. He also said it has a JCW head which I had never heard of?
In cleaning the car I found a certificate from John Cooper Works which doesnt give much information but mentions breaking in the Engine again by varying the RPMs. Obviously I will call and give them certificate and see what they can tell me but again wondered what input yall may have.
Anyway I'm glad to be a mini owner again especially one that is as quick as this one is.

Alta doesn't make a supercharger, just reduction pulleys.

Most likely the car has a 200 bhp JCW Tuning Kit which has been modified. If you attach an image of the engine bay someone will be able to identify what aftermarket parts have been added.
