CatCams 1302601 Camshafts Mini Cooper s r56 1.6 16v Turbo PSA N14 Citroen Ds3 Peugeot 207Rc

These Cat Cam camshafts are specific to the BMW Mini R56 1.6 Turbo with VVT intake. The Catcams 1302601 is a fast road camshaft set designed for engines running the standard ECU. We recommend the 1302601 for most road cars as this still gives a smooth idle

Suitable for both the 175 bhp and 181 bhp versions of the R56 MINI Cooper S using the 1.6-litre direct injection, valvetronic turbocharged engine, the new Cat Cams profiles are the perfect bolt-on upgrade on a motor that can require a cam chain and tensioner replacement beyond 70,000 miles.

Back to back dyno runs show that as a straight swap against the standard BMW profiles, the Cat Cams gained nearly 10 bhp at the wheels on a high mileage 2007 R56 Cooper S, with useful power increases from 3750 rpm right through to the rev limiter.

Impressively, dyno testing also shows that the Cat Cams gain up 12 lb.ft at the wheels from 4000 rpm upwards, with a much stronger mid-range and top end performance.

The Cat Cams BMW MINI R56 profiles carry the following technical specification:-
