Mini One 2007 1.4

Hi there peeps
Just bought daughter a mini one (spares or repairs) 1.4 misfire on cylinder number 1 turned out to be burnt exhaust valve of course
i currently own a E39 530d but have often thought about a mini cooper S but only time will tell
i much prefer the R53 as a cooper S it looks more aggressive i have driven both in the past and in all honesty not really noticed any difference in performance

As for the mini one project of the daughters i have mostly worked out whats needed but i do have a couple of questions seems to have 2 vanoses 1 on each cam the other question is would the head from a cooper S work with the N14 1.4 normally aspirated or would the cooper S lower the compression too much

Any help or advice would be most welcome

i am not here as a completer freeloader having being a mechanic best part of 25 years am sure i can give a little back too
