Upgrade from base to S clutch

My daughter just burned up her clutch on an 08 base Cooper. I want to upgrade to the larger clutch that is used on the S for two reasons: First I can't find a reasonably priced flywheel for the base model. There are plenty of single mass flywheels for the 228mm clutches but none for the 200mm. 2nd, I hoping the larger clutch will last longer.

Can any one tell me if the 228mm clutch and flywheel kit will fit the base cooper? Is there anything else I need to change out? Looks like the release fork is a different part number so I'm assuming I need to replace that also.

It really depends on the driving style of your daughter. I have a lead foot and like to drive in reverse really fast. I moved from the dual mass oem over to solid mass. You should be able to use a valeo solid flywheel conversion kit. Exeddy and Clutchmaster kits are a little pricey but hold up well during street and race conditions.

Thanks for the info... the single mass should fit her driving style better. We don't by the Mini to baby it, right!

I still need to know if I can replace the 200mm clutch with the 228mm clutch and what parts have to change besides the flywheel.

So this is a qoute from Ollypop0
Ok so up date on the gearbox conversion. After much research online and getting the old man on the case too, we contacted John Tee at Minigearboxes.co.uk who although being on spring break kindly gave us a parts list for the conversion. It turns out it is not a straight one in one out swap (no such luck) but it's not as complicated as the Midland to Getrag switch. The parts you need, for anyone that's interested are as follows.

2X Drive shafts
Transmission mounting
Flywheel & Clutch
Control cables & Selector box
KN air filter

So next step sourcing parts.
Keep you posted

I appreciate all the research. Turns out to be much more complicated than I expected. I think I'm going to have to stick with the original 200mm clutch.
