MSD High Power Ignition Coils
When it comes to late model performance parts, nothing beats bolt-on and direct connection components. Especially when they improve performance with a hotter spark like these new MINI Cooper MSD Blaster Coils. These new bolt-in coils are designed with improved materials and windings to produce a stronger spark. This improved spark helps burn the fuel mixture more efficiently resulting in a smooth idle and improved mid range rpm power. Fits all MINI Cooper models. The factory coil packs have a serious problem with rust starting on lead number 3. The rust is a factory issue that even to this day has not been addressed. No matter what climate you live in this will eventually start to occur. If left long enough the rust slowly migrates to all 4 leads. The negative effect this has is reduced spark to the spark plug resulting in poor mileage and reduced performance. The Brass leads on the MSD will not rust. Also be sure to check out our article on Replacing the coil pack on the MINI Cooper. Also included is new hardware to fit the coil to the valve cover. Along with the MSD coil, it's recommended that you upgrade the ignition leads and use a set of colder spark plugs.

MSD Super Conductor Spark Plug Wires
The MSD MINI Cooper 8.5mm Super Conductor Wire is "the" performance wire. Engineered from the inside out, the 8.5 offers everything you have ever wanted in a wire; incredibly low resistance without electronic interference! In a single 12 inch length of Super Conductor Wire there is only 40 - 50 ohms of resistance! That is the lowest resistance of any helically wound wire. To accomplish this, MSD uses a copper alloy conductor due to it's great voltage carrying capabilities. The low resistance results in less loss in spark energy so more reaches the spark plug. The conductor is wound extremely tight around a special center core. So tight in fact, that there is over 40 feet of conductor wrapped into a single foot of plug wire. This winding procedure, combined with a ferro-magnetic impregnated center core, produces an extremely effective Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) "choke". This choke, or suppression capability, keeps the EMI inside the wire where it cannot interfere with other electronics on your vehicle. The outer sleeve that surrounds the conductor assembly is just as impressive. A proprietary blend of silicone and synthetic material produce a sleeve that is highly resistant to high heat as well as abrasion and tears. All of the MSD spark plug terminals feature "Dual Crimp" terminals. As the name implies, the terminals feature two crimps: One for the sleeve of the wire and another separate crimp to grasp the conductor of the wire. By having separate crimps, the conductor doesn't need to bent 180 degrees and get squeezed between the terminal and sleeve. The individual conductor crimp produces a more secure crimp and there is less chance of spark arcing to the engine block or exhaust through the boot. In fact, MSD feels so strongly about Dual Crimp terminals that every factory crimped plug wire is guaranteed not to "pull off" for FIVE years!

Ignition Coils
A coil is essentially a giant capacitor, storing voltage until it is discharged through the distributor, down to the spark plugs.
