Thanks everyone for their help, here is the result of walnut + motul carb cleaner contact sprey. If your compressor is any less than 50litre 10bar, make sure you have a carb cleaner in your hand.

Update: This is a must to every mini! All the hidden ponnys came alive. Worth each single bit of money and time spent.

Now a question: Do we have to put 2 oil catch cans or 1 will prevent or at least hold on a while?

From what I’ve seen, only one is really needed on the N14 engine - fit the catch can into the rear left side PCV hose that leads to the intake manifold.

Eight years ago, I blocked off the rear PCV hose and put an oil catch can on the PCV hose to the turbocharger. Now there is no way for the oil mist from the crank case to reach the backs of the intake valves and cook there. I have had no problems with this set up.

This is only necessary for Cooper S and not a Justa, is that correct?

Any reviews on the situation using WMI? Any photos with some mileage using WMI?

I'm 60k miles, using WMI last 20k miles. Idk if it's necessary.
