Mini Cooper Engine Install Part 2

Here is Part 2 of the 2007 Mini Cooper S engine and transmission install. Here’s Part 1

Mini Cooper Engine Install Part 1 400

In this episode I complete the installation of the engine and transmission into my Mini Cooper. I also start it up for the first time and I show you the procedures I go through when starting up an engine that’s had a significant amount of work done like this one has.

This video has a ton of information on the engine compartment of an R56 Mini Cooper.

I hope the information is useful to you.

I had some help with editing on this one from Javan Hovind.
