Ordered this to replace my OEM bypass valve and glad I did. Original one was just caked with black grease/soot/carbon/dirt...it was just bad.

After installing the new BPV from Detroit Tuned, I notice a slightly quicker throttle response and a significant reduction in the "YOYO effect" (slowing down, foot off throttle, feels like it speeds up for a second).

I highly recommend this modification as it's (relatively) inexpensive and only takes about three or four hours for someone of low experience to install.

Details

The Detroit Tuned Bypass Valve is a re-worked brand new OEM valve that is modified to eliminate the "Yo-Yo" in early year ('02-'04) Cooper S's, but is available for all year Cooper S's. This BPV uses a stiffer return spring, resulting in quicker boost generation, and thus quicker throttle response and transitions. The butterfly assembly is also adjusted to close fully, allowing for maximum boost. Perfect for the aggressive driver or racer. Expect a very minor loss in fuel economy, and a great improvement in throttle resolution and smoothness. Every valve comes with full how-to instructions with great photos. Easy to install in about an hour.

The Detroit Tuned Bypass Valve is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:

OMG! I ordered Window Rain/Wind Guards for my Mini Cooper, which, by the way, were almost impossible to find and they arrived the NEXT DAY!!! I paid Standard shipping. Amazing. I have not installed them yet but did do a test fit and they look like they are a perfect fit. THANKS SO MUCH!

I got the lights. Thank you so much. You guys have restored the faith in
humanity to me by sending me the lights because it was so many months
after and it could have been argued that I should have checked the box
sooner and not after 7 months. I am really floored by your customer
service! You guys are awesome!

Thank you !!! :-)

Did a search online for a replacement dome light button for a 2004 mini copper s and was directed toward your site. I was, frankly, shocked by the price listed and wouldn’t be surprised if others had the same reaction, after viewing the price. After swing that outrageous price, for a dome light button, I may have to, seriously, reconsider buying anything from your sight, in light of the fact that I can purchase a, nearly, brand new one- although it’ll be used- for $25, with free shipping. Please, if you will, explain selling a button for $67. That’s, without shipping.

ANSWER from OutMotoring: Hi, yes, this is a insanely high price for such a small item, unfortunately production and other costs define the price as we have to purchase this though the MINI parts network and they sometimes have exceptionally high prices on some items.
