Engine Rebuilds

Many customers visit Lohen for MINI tuning, upgrades and improvements but, very occasionally, necessary repair work is required to more serious problems such as MINI head gasket swaps, Generation 2 timing chain replacement or swap of Cooper S & JCW turbos and so on.

Alongside these jobs we are able to perform tasks such as complete MINI engine rebuilds and swaps quickly and precisely. We have clean dedicated in-house facilities to complete engine rebuild jobs to a high standard. Our purpose-built engine room is a closed-off, dust-free environment and we use highly skilled mechanics to carry out the work on your engine.

After the rebuild is complete we use the latest techniques to make sure your engine is properly installed, bled up and tested before returning your MINI in perfect working order. Our in-house Dyno means we can run in your rebuilt engine using bedding in oil and have the car ready to go back out on the road or track.


If your MINI has suffered an engine failure and requires some TLC, it may be a sensible time to consider uprating components as part of your MINI’s upgrade plan. After all, you will save time and money combining necessary repairs with aftermarket parts. Lohen stocks a wide range of MINI replacement items, including both OEM and after market, and will be happy to provide you with all the options; you can then make an informed decision to suit your budget and timescales.
