Oil Cooler Kit for Gen 1 MINI Cooper S. Keep engine oil cool on the street or track and protect your engine investment with a this custom Oil Cooler kit. Compatible with oversized intercooler upgrades!
Built with a water jet cut billet aluminum adapter plate, aluminum aircraft fittings, aircraft rubber hose (or optional stainless steel hose) and a fin and tube oil cooler unit for max cooling capacity at low weight. Each kit is designed for each make and model of car to provide max cooling and easy installation. We’ve logged thousands of track and street miles on this MINI Cooper S testing these oil coolers with no issues! Our kit helps reduce oil temperatures, reduce power loss from excessive oil temps and reduces stress on oil which leads to engine failure from oil break down, plus it adds 1 quart of capacity. Lines and fittings are #8.
Fits 2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper S Hatchback.
Two versions available - one with standard rubber hoses, and another with stainless steel lines. Adapter Plate also availabie separately. Make selection.
Designed for MINIs that drive on the street but spend time on the track too. After seeing MINIs coming off the track with 300+ oil temp, we knew something had to be done or we would be building a lot of engines. By using a laser cut billet aluminum adapter plate, aluminum aircraft fittings, and a fin and tube cooler unit, we saved weight, added cooling capacity and made a heavier duty kit than others. We’ve been using this oil cooler on our MINI and customer’s MINIs for several years.
This oil cooler kit is designed for 2007+ Gen 2 R56 MINI Cooper S Hatchback and will work whether you have the Getrag 6 speed or the Aisin Automatic transmissions. The kit comes with all parts and instructions. It is not a universal type kit; it was designed and tested on US R56 MINIs. Some bumper brace trimming is required to fit the cooler unit on to the car.
