  • Available Now - High-Flow Sports Catalyst and De-Cat Downpipes - MINI Cooper S/JCW F56 / F56 LCI facelift

    When it comes to driver enjoyment, the latest crop of hot MINIs take some beating. Whether it’s the lively Cooper S or the range-topping JCW – both cars deliver the goods, with potent engines  and engaging handling.

    For those looking to maximise the potential of their performance MINI, Cobra Sport has  developed a high-flow sports catalyst to fit both PPF and non-PPF models.

    This free-flowing 3in (76.2mm) item delivers a significant increase in gas flow thanks to the large 4.5in (114.3mm) 200 cell sports catalyst, which in turn opens the door to gains in both power and torque. During testing (with sports catalyst and resonated cat-back exhaust, no additional hardware and conservative Stage 1 map), power increased from 215hp to 291hp and torque from 338Nm to 413Nm – with 300+hp easily achievable. This far less-restrictive setup provides an ideal foundation for further tuning.

    As well as the performance gains, the car benefits from increased volume with a more pronounced overrun (pops and bangs). A deeper, more aggressive tone further adds to the sporting intent of the Cooper S and JCW.

    A full de-cat pipe setup is also available, which delivers even greater increases in power, torque and sound – for those who demand the ultimate in performance (for track use only).

    Both setups are designed, manufactured and tested in the UK and produced to the same exacting standards as the rest of Cobra Sport’s performance exhaust range. They will fit stock MINI Cooper S/JCW exhaust systems, or can be matched with Cobra Sport’s cat-back
    setup, to create a full turbo-back system.

    With over 25 years in the performance exhaust industry, each Cobra Sport exhaust system is designed, manufactured and tested in Sheffield, the heart of the UK steel industry. Cobra Sport utilise TIG-welding techniques to ensure a flawless finish and quality that you can rely on.

    Unleash the potential of your MINI Cooper S or JCW today with Cobra Sport.

  • Available Now - Mini F56 & F56 LCI PPF / Res Delete Exhausts (Coopers S and JCW)

    With its potent turbocharged engine and an engaging chassis, the latest Mini F56 LCI delivers a thrilling driving experience, all wrapped up in a stylish and solidly built package. However, there’s always room for a little improvement.

    As with all new models, the facelift F56 LCI Cooper S and JCW is fitted with a PPF (petrol particulate filter), which limits the potential of that fantastic 2.0-litre engine, leading to a muted and disappointing sound.

    Cobra Sport’s engineers have developed a solution in the form of their new PPF Delete. This high-quality, 3in (76.2mm) mandrel-bent pipe features TIG-welded hangers and removes a significant restriction in the exhaust system.  

    The main brief was to improve the sound and unleash the full potential of the engine. Following intensive development, Cobra Sport have delivered a product that truly awakens the sound of the Mini, while also improving gas flow.

    The exhaust now emits a deep and vibrant tone, especially evident under load, while under deceleration, there’s now an audible burble, accompanied by pops and bangs. This simple, but effective upgrade completely changes the character of the car, giving it a more sporty and thrilling sound with a 9% dB increase on the track test. The difference in sound is illustrated in the sound video on our product page - 

    A direct replacement for the OEM part, the Cobra Sport PPF Delete is the most cost-effective way to improve the sound of the stock facelift Cooper S and JCW. A simple ECU reflash will be required at the time of fitting to prevent engine warning lights illuminating. 

    A Centre Resonator Delete Pipe is also available for earlier, pre-PPF Mini F56 models, which delivers similar improvements, but without the need for an ECU reflash.

    Like all Cobra Sport exhausts, this product utilises precision TIG-welding techniques for exemplary fit and finish – a feature that sets Cobra Sport apart from other manufacturers.
