Mini Cooper s conversion

Hi I have a Mini Cooper 2003 1.6 with the usual gearbox problems I was looking to upgrade to a six speed but now am tempted to see if I can throw a compleate Cooper s engine and box in is this worth looking into??

Yes, it's possible if you're willing to spend that kind of money.

If you are going from a justa to an S you will need everything, engine/box, ECU, other modules, exhaust and mods to hang exhaust, new rear panel for twin pipes, maybe the bonnet if you want the air intake look. Badges for rear and side scuttles. Seems like a lot for a motor that will not get you anything like the value of a true S resale. You will also have to alter the documents and insurance.
