Mini Cooper Catalytic Converter / Downpipe Refubish Service to restore flow through your Cat. This is a 'service' that refurbishes YOUR downpipe and requires that you remove the downpipe from your car and send it in for this service. This is critical when installing a new Turbo!
For the following Cooper S models:
2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper S Convertible
2012-2015 R58 MINI Cooper S Coupe
2012-2015 R59 MINI Cooper S Roadster
2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper S Countryman
2013-2016 R60 MINI Cooper S Paceman
Excessive exhaust backpressure will kill any turbo. Years of buildup in the catalytic converter increases the exhaust backpressure. Backpressure causes undue stress on the turbine which in turn stresses the seal and circlip. Over time, these items will wear causing oil leaks and excessive shaft movement, either of which will eventually cause turbo failure.
In order to eliminate this problem, this Catalytic Converter Refurbishment Service will restore flow through your cat back to original OEM specs. The proprietary process restores flow without degrading the cat, remove crucial heavy metals, or damage the core. This is not an acid flush or chemical baste process.
Simply ship your downpipe and the service will take 2 to 3 days before your downpipe is shipped back to you.
Once we recieve your order, we will provide you with instructions and address for shipment.
NOTE: When installing 'oversized' high performance turbos (for off-road use), the stock catalytic converter may not have sufficient flow for reliable long term operation. In these cases, you should consider a larger diameter downpipe (with or without the cat) and a performance exhaust system. The larger turbos requires lower backpressure - for example, the ideal exhaust for the K04 turbo on the MINI is a 3 inch downpipe and 3 inch exhaust.
