Hi, I’m a young driver and can’t afford the insurance on a r53. I have a 2005 Mini Cooper r50 but want to swap the r53 engine into my mini. I’m a mechanic with my own garage so got all the time space and tools, was just looking for any tips on the matter and if anyone has done it. Like is changing the loom a dash out job for are the plugs similar enough for r50. I know I will need the following:
-engine
-gearbox
-Driveshafts
-Ecu
-Loom
-Bonnet(unless I use a front mount intercooler)
Any and all help will be much appreciated thanks.
