Okay, many of you know my g/f totalled my IS300. So, I bought a new toy...MINI Cooper S. I have had it about 3 weeks now and have heavily modded it. Smaller supercharger pully, header,exhaust,suspension,intake,CryO2 sprayer system, H2O spray etc.
Anyway, it HAULS @SS now!
I took both a 2003 WRX and a 2003 EVO off the line to about 80ish. This is no BS, I have an entire car club as witnesses.

I know, it has nothing to do with an IS300, but I'm willing to make it! Don't get me wrong, I loved and really miss my IS. If anyone is looking for a second fun car, give this a try. Many possibilities.

Yes, off the line. We had to back down because of traffic ahead. I was as astonished as you. They were completely awe-struck. And I'm still running all season run-flats! I'm going to the dyno and track wednesday, I'll post my numbers...

Nice mods, you probably running around low 13 to high 12 sec. in 1/4 mile. I almost buy the Cooper S but the trunk is too small for a baby's stroller.

Nice car bisch, are you planning on getting the Works package soon? One of my friends will probably get the upgrade done, I can post up how it goes if you want.

question: why did you get a smaller supercharger pulley? I thought to gain more boost it would be better to have an increased diameter for the pulley.

No, I don't have a turbo...it is supercharged (Eaton). The smaller diameter pulley spins the supercharger faster, thus more air. The CryO2 system super freezes the air charge.

The small trunk space is a b!tch. I have two babies.

The Works package is way over priced for what you get. I have done the same mods basically, for a lot less. Plus I have more power.

You can see some pics at minicooperonline.com, performance mods, "pffft, pfft cryo2" post.

The Mini Cooper is a little quick, but nooooot faster than the Evo at ANY speed. Those mods you mention wont get you past the 200rwhp mark. The WRX will be also faster from the launch but not from a roll. Im not saying you didnt beat the cars you mentioned, you just beat the TERRIBLE drivers they had.

Firestarter: No, the mini will not run low 13's high 12's with those mods. :roll: I dont think a 13.99 is possible.

I love the car for its handling and looks, but its not a fast car. The 1.8T VW and Audis are more mod friendly then those cars, and they DONT beat Evos and WRX that easy.

good post, and i agree, no way in hell is a Cooper S running a low 13-high 12 with just those mods, it would be lucky to break out of the 14s, very lucky.
