MINI Cooper S N14 Valve Cover. This is a new OEM Valve cover direct from MINI in the lastest and greatest design that is currently in their system. This cover fails at the PCV valve system that is build into the valve cover and can not be replaced. This is due to extreme heat in the engine bay as well lack of oil changes due to MINI's extended oil service interval. You will hear a sucking sound from the back of the valve cover on really bad leaks that have triggered a check engine light, but normally you see a large amount of oil off the back of the valve cover. By fixing this you should see better MPG cause the car is working correctly.
This valve cover will fit all N14 motors from 2007-2010 for all Cooper S's (R55, R56, R57) as well as all JCW motors for 2011 on R58 and R59 Cooper S's. IF your cover doesn't look like this or you have any questions, please give us a call and have the last 7 of your VIN # handy (Example: TJ55937).
This cover comes with all needed gaskets to complete the install. You reuse the bolts and the wire cover at the front from the old valve cover. Also this valve cover doesn't come with a MINI Logo in place. There is also no way to order it that way. You may be able to remove the old one and 3M double side tape it back down (what it is held on with).But it will fix all of your problems.

The item was packed well with all the instructions and required items (gaskets, etc.). Quality was as expected with an OEM part. The only gripe, which is a common one, is the Mini logo sticker is not included with the valve cover but is a separate item. That's BMW's fault, though. Still, it functions just as well without the sticker.

What a difference! The wife's car was having issues with a major vacuum leak. She found out the PCV busted on the OE valve cover. Can't believe Mini would make it as one whole part! Any who, she said it was too darn easy to replace and was worried she didn't do it right. She had it done in no time at all. She started it up and VOILA, it ran like a top.
Shipping was fast and accurate delivery time! A+++ on part and Detroit Tuned!
