Description
The M7 Aerogel Turbo Heatshield is designed to fit over the stock turbo using pre-existing mounting points. It's lined with a custom Aerogel blanket to minimize the heat flowing to the rest of the engine bay. Aerogel is nanotechnology with amazing heat rejection qualities (which is why NASA is also using this material in a variety of applications). We've been using Aerogel for a while on the R53 and wanted to bring its heat-rejecting characteristics over to the R56.

Fits:

2007-2013 R56 Cooper S Hatchback
2008+ R55 Cooper S CLUBMAN
2009+ R57 Cooper S Convertible
2012+ R58 Cooper S COUPE
2012+ R59 Cooper S Roadster

NOTE: NOT compatible with the new 2014 F56 MINI Hatchback.

The 2007-2010 N14 engine uses a different heat shield from the 2011-2013 N18 engine, select accordingly.

The M7 Aerogel Turbo Heatshield is better than anything else on the market for a number of reasons:

[ ] It does not completely encase the turbocharger as some have assumed (the turbocharger is actually fully wrapped in its own, ineffective heatshield). The M7 heat shield still has openings for air to escape down and away from the turbo. The majority of heat that wants to rise will be absorbed by the aerogel blanket.
[ ] Aerogel is widely known as a thermal insulator which reduces the rate of heat transfer, thus making it a perfect way to keep turbo heat from reaching the rest of the engine bay.
[ ] Despite any material's resistance to
heat, given enough time or higher temperatures (due to hard driving), the material will eventually heat up. Thus, the addition of aerogel is a huge benefit to the M7 heat shield as it will delay the time it takes for the metal portion of the heat shield to heat up.
[ ] The M7 heat shield is installed with two bolts going into the factory turbo heat shield. Installation does NOT require you to undo the bolts to the engine's valve cover. Any product that has you do so will make you break the seal between the head and the valve cover where incorrect installation can result in a poor seal or even a cracked valve cover.
