AIR RIDE set to move to new larger installation and manufacturing facility shortly


MCT 170 Turbo

A true bolt-on turbo conversion, that can be reversed later if required. Battery relocated to the boot to free up space (and improve weight distribution). Conversion features ultra reliable Garrett turbo with internal wastegate which in this application boosts up to 7psi. This turbo is a very compact unit rated to over 225bhp, and has its own oil supply for lubrication, and water cooling for long life.

This Turbo is very well matched to it application having taken over a year of work to finalise the Turbo spec. This Turbo runs at an awesome 77-78 % efficiency from 3000rpm to the Redline!!! Compare that to a Supercharger struggling to get a 50% efficiency rating!

Full Boost arrives at around 3000 rpm  and remains at full boost until the red line - boost delivery better than a supercharger! A Standard Cooper S is on a little over half maximum boost at 3000 rpm and does not get full boost until 6750 rpm!

More than enough to waste a standard Cooper S, and the dump valve is just so much cooler. The standard High compression engine of the Cooper and One means the car is far more driveable than the sluggish Standard Cooper S off boost, and more economical too, and even has better emissions! Specially fabricated manifold mounts turbo and can link to standard Cat (if required). Kit includes everything needed and the kit can be fitted by us or by any competent mechanic. Kit includes:

  • Garrett turbo specially built to our spec.

  • Cast Tubular manifold, ported to match and stress relieved.

All that is needed to fit this kit is the usual spanners, screwdrivers, and sockets. It is fully reversible.

*Power Figures. It is very difficult to quote actual power figures for your vehicle, as the actual output varies depending upon many factors, including the actual specification and condition of your engine, altitude, temperature, humidity, vehicle equipment levels, and numerous other factors. Those figures quoted are typical and are based upon our own experience of the kits listed above. They are not guaranteed on any particular vehicle. 
**MINI One must be remapped to MINI Cooper spec before conversion to reach full potential.
