MINI Cooper S R52/R53 100% stainless system bolts to the stock exhaust after the catalytic converter. Twin round tips fill out the rear valence perfectly with no rubbing. This system is louder and lighter than the Street system and features smaller mufflers and a high flow resonator than the Street system. Stock system weighed in at 45.5 LBS, the Race is just over 30lbs. With our in-house Dynapack Chassis Dyno, we tested many different exhaust systems currently on the market for the Cooper S. The Borla came out on top! Dyno results showed a peak gain of 6-7 HP power at 6250 RPM, but power increases from 3700 RPM all the way up to redline.
Few vehicles have ever lived up to that byline better than the MINI Cooper. This incredible vehicle is both nimble and powerful, and the supercharged 163-HP engine almost demands a new BORLA stainless steel Cat-Back™ exhaust system. The unique posture of this race-bred European saloon touring car is well documented, and complimenting BMW engineering and high output engine with the free breathing mandrel-bent genuine BORLA Cat-Back™ system with BORLA custom-tuned performance muffler gives this little parcel of dynamite some real attitude.
BORLA features aircraft quality high quality austenitic stainless steel (superior to 409 or aluminized), mandrel bent tubing with race-bred straight-through mufflers, unduplicated great BORLA sound of power, backed by an unsurpassed written Million-Mile Warranty. Genuine BORLA, see it, hear it, feel it … then you too will know why Winner’s Choose Borla!
