Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can I put a 2004 Mini Cooper non- turbo
engine into a 2007 Mini Cooper S? I would
like to take out the 07 engine and replace it
with the 04 engine and then just add the
turbo and anything else that it might need on
to it. Well this work?

Any time you are installing a different size engine, there will be all kinds of problems. Starting with the motor mounts, exhaust system, Engine Control module, wiring harness, emissions, transmission, etc, etc, etc. This will be an expensive project.
