Get ready to roll!
MINIs have always held a special place in the automotive world with their diminutive size, peppy attitude, and dynamic chassis. They’re not for everyone but their drivers are extremely loyal. The team at Krumm-Performance has been working with MINI models for years and this new John Cooper Works (JCW) is anything but Krummy!
Enough with the bad puns. The Krumm-Performance MINI JCW isn’t peppy, it’s downright powerful thanks to the Stage III upgrade kit. The turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine was given a new Hybrid Turbo setup that includes a newly optimized compressor gap, larger turbine, CNC-finished termination assemblies, and new bearings to produce greater amounts of boost pressure. A new racing intercooler keeps things cool and regulated under high-stress situations. Krumm-Performance also added on a Pipercross air filter element, high-performance spark plugs, new heat shields, and an Akrapovic downpipe with 100-cell catalytic conveter. A full and complete software tune helps maintain reliability and everyday drivability while boosting performance considerably.
In total, the Krumm-Performance MINI JCW makes a whopping 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. All that is sent to the front wheels through the gearbox equipped with a new Drexler LSD and Sachs racing clutch with single-mass flywheel.
And that’s only part of the equation. Krumm-Performance tacked on a new set of KW Clubsport two-way adjustable coilovers with the in-hour Northloop setup and Powerflex bushings all around. Farther out sit new AP Racing four-piston calipers that weigh in at just 5.7 lbs. each and clench down on 330 x 32 mm floating wave brake discs with PFC 01 brake pads and utilize stainless steel flex lines. Hiding those are new one-piece ATS-GTR wheels measuring 8.0 x 17 at both axles with 215/45 R17 Dunlop Direzza 03G tires.
Elsewhere, the MINI JCW was equipped with supportive Recaro SPG XL seats with Schroth Profi 3FE six-point harnesses, a CAE-Ultra shifter, and OMP Ultraleggero steering wheel, and Wiechers Clubsport rollover bar. The entire exterior was then wrapped by Chamshaft Premium Car Wrapping.
All of the featured upgrades on the Krumm-Performance MINI JCW are currently available as separate upgrades or a complete package.
