N14/ N18 question

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been covered before but from all i have read i'm really confused.

i have a 2010 cooper S. From that i think i have the N14 engine 174 bhp?,

However i read that the N14 doesn't have the sport button "pops and bangs" and mine does.
I want to order some air induction parts but i cant find where the engine code is on the car to check which one i have

Can anyone clarify?

cheers

brad

I've not come across an 'S' that doesn't have the sport button, N14 and N18.

The pops and bangs are more on the N18 engine but they both do it

The rumors before were that some dealers were coding out the pops and bangs, however after complaints they ended up coding it back in.

Word on the grape vine.

ahh i see, my speedo broke 2 days after buying the car and the one they replaced it with is slightly darker the half tank mark has a black surround round it too. i'm assuming they replaced with an LCI version

Hello, do you think, it's possible to replace my N14 engine in Cooper S R56 2008 with N18 engine?

personally i don't see the point, from what read the changes are minimal and not worth the cost. unless you can source a decent engine cheap and fit it yourself of course. think its a straight swap but maybe wrong

What do you mean by the "pops and bangs" exactly...not sure what you mean.

He doesnt mean backfiring, well he might if the cars timing is out, but it means the crackle type noise you get from the exhaust on over run/deceleration when you lift your foot off the throttle, some people like to hear it.

The old Morris Minors used to give a fart, remember those? well its kind of a similar principle.
