This year we raised $1,091 for charity that we donated to the area food back and a local pet shelter. Your generous donation of merchandise helped make this possible. (I was very happy to have won the stubby antenna!)
Thank you again for your generosity and the great variety of merchandise you sent.
We had about 40 MINIs at the car show and great weather -- that got everyone in a generous mood and got us over the $1,000 goal. A fitting end to an awesome summer. Thank you again!
Out Motoring deserves kudos for their service! I was prepping for a road trip when less than two weeks prior I decided to upgrade two engine mounts and install a short shift adapter in my R53. Aaron and Brittany were hugely helpful in getting me ready! Brittany was able to find the mounts I wanted in stock, and Aaron helped me with info on the short shifter I was looking at. Brittany helped me again when I changed my mind, by modifying my order on the fly. They got the components to me in four days - plenty of lead time before my scheduled installation appointment and well in advance of the trip. BIG Thanks to Out Motoring for their help. This outfit will be at the top of my vendor list for future maintenance and upgrade needs.
I ordered the NM power module and a K&N CAI for my '16 F54 S Clubman. Both were very easy to install with the attached instructions. Shipping and service were excellent and I will continue to buy any items I need from these guys.
Forge Blow Off Valve for the N14 engine in MINI Cooper R55S, R56S, R57S
Category:MINI Performance Parts Posted:07-30-2015 09:27 AM Views: 17329
Synopsis: This is the solution you've been looking for!
This Forge Blow Off Valve for MINI Cooper is engineered for the Peugeot / BMW Mini 1.6 Turbo engines, as
found in the Peugeot 207/307/308 GT Turbo and BMW Mini Cooper S Turbo
(FMDVR56A Blow Off Valve N14 Engines Cooper S 2007-10, JCW Cooper S
2007-2012) fitted with the N14 engines. This valve is recommended for
any vehicle where the boost pressure has been increased by an ECU
software upgrade and for unmodified vehicles operating in warmer
climates, as a solution to the many failures that have occurred.
The most common complaint on the OEM solenoid valve is a split
diaphragm preventing the valve from opening fully or not at all. This
doesn’t always result in a check engine light as the valve can still be
blown open by the boost pressure. We have seen many valves with this
problem. The other problem is that the diaphragm retaining ring is made from
very thin plastic that becomes brittle with heat cycles and eventually
fails. This prevents the diaphragm from sealing with the same problems
as mentioned above. This particular failure also results in the valve
falling apart upon removal from the turbo, though in extreme cases bits
of plastic can enter the turbo and destroy it.
Our alternative is a fully engineered solution offering significantly improved reliability. Our valve is piston based, with no
diaphragm to fail, and of all aluminium construction. The Forge Blow Off Valve for MINI Cooper replaces the
original unit with a pressure/vacuum-operated piston valve that still
retains the desirable OEM ECU control over valve actuation. The
valve has been proven on the VAG scene for many years. The spring is
interchangeable for different levels of boost, and the solenoid is plug
and play with the wiring harness which is included.
