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:

This is a great product! If you are thinking about bleeding your brakes or replacing your lines, this is a must have product. Super simple, great results. Worth every penny!

All I can say is wow! This sway bar installed easily. The NM Engineering instructions are excellent. I could feel the difference even backing out of the garage. I started it out on setting 3 out of 4, but will be moving to the stiffest setting shortly. The Mini handled great stock, so I was a little skeptical about how much of a difference this bar would make. Boy am I glad I elected to give it a try. Completely worth the expense.

These camber plates are very well built structurally, improved the handling of the car dramatically, but IE built this unit around a very low quality bearing. By increasing the camber in the way that this unit does, it puts more load on the bearing and within only a couple months of installing it, the bearing becomes noisy, than gets sloppy, and than you car sounds like your front end is going to fall off on mild bumps. We installed these fixed camber plates following the instructions to the letter and within a few months, every set had to come off the cars they were on.
