Details

At some point in time the stock Catylitic Converter on your Gen1 MINI will fall apart OR be stolen as your car sits in a parking lot. The factory unit is about $1500 to replace and offers zero performance gains while this high quality free flowing Quicksilver Header is exponentially better. The original manifold has four short primaries and a restrictive collector followed by two catalytic converters in series. These catalytic converters have cores with about 500 cells per square inch (cpsi) giving a ow area of approximately 60%.

The Quicksilver Manifold and ‘Race-Cat’ has four longer tuned-length primaries followed by a single free-ow Catalytic converter. This ‘Cat’ has a microscopically thin Fecralloy metallic core of 200 cpsi to which the essential Platinum and Rhodium are applied at a much greater density (25 grams per cubic foot compared to 10 grams on a typical aftermarket product). This all results in a ow area of approximately 85% whilst remaining clean enough to meet emissions requirements.

- The Fecralloy metallic core is very durable, far more so than ceramic cores typically used.
- Incorporates a triple-wall exible section to a much higher spec than the twin-wall OE item.
- Accelerated gas-ow draws heat away more efficiently.
- Bolt-On fit - Precision engineered.
 - The two original lambda sensors are retained.
- Dyno tests show a 12hp improvement and increased mid range torque.

Customers' comments

Just received my latest order for the R56 Gloss black hood scoop. Easy Install and great fit. Only issue is the gloss finish has major swirl scratches. Not sure if this was a return that got put back on the self or came from factory this way.

The last month I bought the EBC yellow stuff brake pads and the Dinantronics Port tuner, the shipment was very fast. Everything was excellent
The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Thanks guys! I know that my first order was a small one but it was a really big deal for my Mini Clubman S.

After getting my new tires installed the Wheel Well Cover came off leaving the wires exposed to objects coming of the road. If you live in the big city like I do, that is a really big deal. Potholes, construction debris and junk can ruin tires never mind the damage that cam be done to exposed well openings.

I ordered my new cover and it was here in two days!

Wow!

Thanks,
Sonrays
