Features

  • Features forged pistons for extra strength

Lohen has been repairing and upgrading the W11 engine found on MINI Cooper S, JCW and GP R53 and R52 models since the company started in 2004. Using this knowledge Lohen now offers crate engines that are built for various uses and tuning levels.  

The Lohen W11 Config 2 Crate Engine Build is a package suitable for MINI owners whose engines require a refresh or are being pushed harder, being used for fast road use or light track use. This configuration uses Supertech forged pistons that are much stronger than stock and are less likely to crack under hard use, the rest of the build includes OEM spec parts, gaskets and oils.

All engines are re-built in-house by Lohen to OEM or higher specification (based on the components used) from donor units that have been checked for tolerances and overall condition. Cylinder bores are checked for ovality and are either honed or bored-and-honed for the right size piston to the correct tolerance. Cranks are checked for size, wear and damage before they are re-used and, where appropriate, balanced to 0.1gram.

All re-usable engine components are either ultrasonically cleaned or soda blasted following inspection and all engines are re-assembled using brand new gaskets, seals and chains.

Please note - 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 starting. 

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 re-buildable 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 an 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.
