Details

The Revolution MINI Works cam has proven to be one of the best on the market. After seeing hundreds and hundreds of these on the road installed on various MINIs and hearing the good feedback from MINI owners, we decided we needed to offer this. There's really not a lot of choices out there when it comes to camshafts for the Gen1 supercharged MINI, but when there are cams that are engineered as good as this one there only needs to be one brand. While RMW offers this cam in about 10 different grinds we have opted to offer the basics here but can get other cams as needed for specific applications.

The basic (yet a good cam for daily driver/occasional autocross/track) cam is known as the '246' which has duration and will be a great upgrade to a fairly modded MINI R53 or R52 that has a stock tune (non chipped). The idle will be pretty even and the power gains are good. There's little risk in this cam.

The next upgrade is the '250' cam which will also work with a stock tune on a modded MINI as the ECU will self calibrate after a few drives. Initial idle will be a bit choppy but the gains will be worth it.

250 CAM details
Street/track Cam for the R53 MINI. More aggressive profile than the stock cam. Must have for the weekend warrior.  250 deg duration and .400 lift.  More aggressive mid-range. To get BEST results will require a tune, BUT works well with the stock tune. Works exceptionally good with the RMW shorty header. Will provide peak torque with the header at 4600rpms and paired with RMW Big Valve Head is good to 7800rpms

Customers' comments

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.

If you don't mind destroying the OEM shifter boot then this thing is a snap (literally and figuratively) to install. You won't need to disassemble the center console. I just broke it off with a screwdriver. The new well pops right in with no tools. Couldn't be simpler.

Love your business and your attempt to service MINI owners. One suggestion for you. When you feature a produce on the front of your emails each time, you should explain just exactly what the part is, what it does, and why a MINI owner would want to replace something on their car with it. All of us are not mechanics and might not recognize a picture of a part. As you do the site now, you always put these things in there and the copy is written as though everyone knows exactly what the part is for.

Another idea, what are the types of things that many MINI owners can do with their cars in terms of customization. Your site is so vast and the number of ideas so large, it's hard for the average person to get their arms around what you offer and why we should buy. You write as though we already know what we want when we come to your site. In actuality, many MINI owners who are not car-savvy don't even know what they might be looking for.

I hope this is helpful.

Best.
