Nowack, a tuning company based in Germany, are offering three tuning packages for the Mini Cooper S.
The first package, the N210, involves an ECU remap and freer flowing air filter to push the 1.6-litre turbocharged engine up from 184bhp to 208bhp. The second level, N230, takes that a step further by fitting a new sports exhaust to push power up to 228bhp.
The final upgrade, N260, is more extensive in its changes. The conversion includes Nowack’s own high performance sport camshafts, a Nowack downpipe, a completely prepared flow optimised cylinderhead, a stainless steel sport exhaust system, and modifications to the intercooling system and intake air flow, as well as the re-programmed ECU. The final result is an impressive 257bhp from the 1.6-litre engine, and Nowack stress that the extra power is delivered in a smooth and linear fashion.
Lowering springs are available, as well as a replacement coilover suspension. Nowack also offer some cosmetic upgrades, including 18-inch alloy wheels and new leather interior.
