Mini Cooper Engine codes.
The following are the engine codes for all current Mini Cooper's (Not Classics)
2002-2006 R50 Cooper = W10 (w10b16) 1.6 Non Supercharged
2002-2006 R53 Cooper S = W11 (w11b16) 1.6 Supercharged
NOTE: 1st gen convertibles were made at the same time the 2nd gen Coupe was. Lots of people get confused when they have a 2007 or 2008 convertible and think its a 2nd gen.
2005-2008 R52 Cooper Convertible = W10 (w10b16) 1.6 Non Supercharged
2005-2008 R52 Cooper S Convertible = W11 (w11b16) 1.6 Supercharged

Thanks for this Post Aaron, It helps a lot.
That's what I am here for
Can you put those numbers into something meaningful? I have heard that the R53 motor is the same one used in the Dodge Neon. If that is true or not, who built it?
No its not a neon motor, never was. Only thing the engines share is the coil pack.
The 1st gen engine was built in Brazil. It's called the tritec.
Also all neon engines have a timing belt, the mini uses a chain. Very common misunderstanding.
Thank you for the clarification, feel better about my engine already.
See Aaron, your around for more than engine codes!!!!
I learned something new after all these years. The oil pan drain plug on the 1st gen is not 13mm ... It is 1/2 inch. Because its a christler design.
what is this (christler)?
