The supercharger pulley upgrade should not be a problem on a higher mileage MINI provided the car was and is properly maintained.

There is always the possibility that the increase in boost may expose parts in the system that were 'marginal' and about to fail, but these should be repairable. We have never heard of the pulley causing any catastrophic failures.
