£5,190.00 £4,325.00

Features

  • Complete engine refresh
  • Stronger pistons
  • Suitable for high-performance engines

Lohen's B48 Config 2 Crate Engine offers a complete engine rebuild for MINI Cooper S and JCW owners whilst also upgrading the pistons to stronger forged Supertech variants. The Config 2 will give your B48 MINI engine better reliability and allow you to drive your F56 harder for longer making it worthwhile if you track your F56. If your F series Cooper S or JCW is remapped, then upgrading to this engine build with forged pistons should give your remapped car better reliability or the option to possibly crank things up further and get even more power from your 2.0-litre engine without worrying about damaging the pistons. 

Supertech Forged Pistons for the F series MINI are strong and lightweight, using enhanced 4032 alloy Supertech pistons have been able to withstand up to 42psi of boost without any problems. Supertech pistons feature a  'phosphate dry lubricant' coating that protects the piston rings from 'micro-welding' and improves lubricant on the cylinder area (Click here to find out more about micro-welding).

The Supertech Forged conrods we supply in this config 2 package have an H beam construction and are made from very high quality 4340 alloys, these conrods are very high wearing and will withstand much higher power levels than what the standard engine can handle. If you are thinking of going stage 3, we would recommend this config 2 engine build. 

 

Please note - 

  • Customers original block, head and original parts are re-used unless listed
  • Crate engines are delivered timed and dry of fluids
  • Crate engines are delivered without ancillaries
  • Your rocker cover and sump must be supplied
  • Additional charges will apply if the original parts that aren't listed as replaced need replacing (such as crank, head, block etc). 

 

Lohen Crate Engines are supplied as timed-up bare units without a sump, oil pump, rocker cover or any other bolt-on ancillaries. The engines are therefore shipped dry and require final assembly and fluids prior to installation and start. 

If required, Lohen can supply a fully built engine for an additional charge. We also offer professional in-house installation and running in service at our workshop. 

Exchange Donor Unit Surcharge 
Lohen will apply a surcharge to every engine sold unless a donor unit is supplied and it is deemed to be in rebuildable condition. 

Why do we apply a surcharge?
A surcharge is charged because Lohen reconditions and re-use certain components, such as the head, crank and the crankcase. We do this to reduce costs to customer and components will only be used if they pass strict inspection criteria. Any wearable components are completely replaced in the upgrade process. 

How it works 
The surcharge applies when a donor engine is not supplied back to Lohen or the condition of the donor engine is deemed by Lohen to be beyond re-buildable (i.e. major damage to the head, crank, block bores or external parts of the engine.) 

Once the donor engine is received Lohen will assess and measure the unit for tolerances and issue any appropriate refund of the surcharge within 7-10 working days. Should certain components within the donor engine be deemed unusable the surcharge will be only partially refunded. Please contact the sales team for full information.
