Similarities between N20 and N18/N14 engines
With the introduction of the N20 engine I have a suspicion that 4 cylinder engines will become an increasingly important part of the BMW lineup. Does anyone here think it would be worth introducing a Sub-section in the forum for discussion relating to turbo'd engines in the Mini Cooper lineup?
With the introduction of the next generation Mini (F56) we will have a new 2.0 turbo from BMW codenamed the B48. It is a 2.0L producing 140kW / 187 HP.
Currently there is not much support for the Mini engines but as time goes on I think/hope they will share more architecture with engines in the BMW 1 series lineup. Hopefully more tuners will want to work on our cars!
P.S. I know the N20 and N18 engines are different However they share many similarities like DI, dual vanos, twin scroll turbo, similar DME tuning etc.

I think you make a good point regarding a section for that motor. Really, I need a whole section for MINI.Chrome Space Bar Issue: http://www.boostaddict.com/showthrea...338#post738338
