Description Reviews MINI Cooper S Intake Manifold Gasket is the gasket between the block and the manifold. It fits all Gen 1 MINI Cooper S cars with the W11 motors. MINI recommends replacing this gasket anytime you have to go any work in that area. We often can reuse this gasket; but on the higher mile cars, or cars that sit outside, then you should replace this. This is a brand new gasket made by Victor Reinz and looks and functions exactly as the factory part but at a much lower cost.
