Milltek Sport exhaust systems for the MINI Cooper S R53 are quickly becoming the owner's choice in performance exhaust for MINI. Manufactured in the UK buy a premier aftermarket exhaust manufacturer. Milltek has significant experience in supplying exhaust components that perform while being civil at the same time. Milltek has the experience of producing superior systems for German-designed cars whilst also having the UK pedigree to deliver what a MINI Cooper owner would expect.
Developed on the dyno by Milltek Sport you have the best system ever seen for the MINI Cooper S. The smoothest flow possible, larger mufflers to keep the sound level down but flow up. A must for anyone serious about improving performance on their MINI Cooper S with a genuine UK-manufactured system. This is the system to have. Makes more torque than any other system our dealers have tested, as much power as all but the very loudest of systems. But...it has smooth sound with performance and industry-leading east fit.
Milltek was one of the first aftermarket performance suppliers in the UK to gain access to the R53 upon its launch, quickly adding one to its development fleet. That fact, combined with the company’s huge knowledge of all BMW powerplants, has paid huge dividends. The design of the R53 exhaust offers superb power and torque gains, with a thoroughly ‘grown-up’ soundtrack.
Milltek quickly identified that exhaust tuning is critical on the Mini, due to the design of the punchy 1.6L engine and the relatively small size of the supercharger that is designed to deliver its power more like a normally aspirated engine. With these two factors playing a major part in the design process, Milltek’s engineers were keen to lower gas temperatures and optimize back pressure without inducing the ‘rasp’ that so easily occurs when tuning engines of this design. Needless to say, they managed it beautifully and the result is a note that exudes purpose, without droning or annoying at cruising speeds.
The system itself is based around a 2.5” (63.5mm) non-magnetic stainless-steel construction. Manufactured in Milltek’s Derbyshire factory, mandrel bending ensures a perfectly even diameter throughout and fitment apes the OE system to allow a myriad of fitment options and the ability to upgrade the system piecemeal, if required, to suit personal tastes or budgetary requirements.
