No the heat shields do not go back on. The mounts for them are attached to the factory manifold. You'll also need an extension for both O2 harnesses.

Where can you find an extension for an R56? I can find the OEM wiring harness online but not just an extension that will fit. Or are they all universal? I'm just assuming they're not.

Oxy, are you running catless or did you have a shop weld one in?

Nope I've been running catless for a for a few years now. One of the benefits of the MINI being registered in South Carolina. I did recently weld in a 22" resonator to get rid of the buzz at around 3500rpm.

You can save your money and simply extend the wires yourself(there's five on the precat and four on the post)so it will take some time. Just a heads up though the clearance between the first sensor bung on the header and the tranny case is VERY tight. I trashed my sensor from it rubbing after 3 days and they cost over $200 each.

You will get a P0420 code with the header. These cars are not easily fooled when it comes to emissions.

First I tried the usual double spark plug non fouler's which got rid of the P0240 but gave me a P1036. So I removed one non fouler but it still threw another P1036.

Finally I started over with a new non fouler and only drilled out enough so that just the tip of the sensor(theres one tiny hole on the tip and several on the sides) was exposed and I haven't thrown any codes since.

If you still have the stock second cat and/or resonator it should sound great. I had removed mine a while ago and needed something to reduce the rasp. If you still want a resonator this is the one I'm using.

^ Body color always looks best!

Is that the MCS spoiler? Maybe it's just the angle, but it looks slightly different.

It is the MCS spoiler, but it did come off of a JCW.

I thought you were running the DDM intake. Did you change it and if so, WHY?
