Davies Craig EWP® & Mini Cooper

What Is a Mini Cooper?

Travel back to the early 1960s and the Mini has quickly become a cult car.  Designed by Sir Alex Issigonis, it became famous for its ‘bigger on the inside than it looks’ space, its funky good looks, and in Cooper Works specification, a lot of muscle for a small four cylinder engine car.

BMW bought the name and in 2000 relaunched the Mini range. This includes the John Cooper Works GP Kit.

Electric Water Pump (EWP®) for a Mini Cooper

Although not a common installation, the EWP®80 would be the preferred Electric Water Pump for a Mini Cooper. For a range of engines that have a small capacity, the Davies Craig EWP®80 becomes the ideal choice to take over from the existing engine driven water pump. There have also been several ‘pocket rocket’ Minis which have been fitted with an EWP®150, though fitting these might be a little trickier due to space limitations.

Issues known with original Mini equipment include the temperature sensor. Made of a plastic material, the sensors are known to wear and fail. Our temperature sensor kit, part number #0409 would make a perfect replacement for the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) part.

The kit includes a sensor, compression fittings, and clamps.  The EWP80® itself can be purchased on its own, or more conveniently with a complete kit to make installation more feasible.

Due to the limited available space inside a Mini Cooper’s engine bay, some specialist work may be required to ensure a perfect fit. A benefit of using a Davies Craig EWP80® is its small size and light weight. At just 900 grams and made from super strong nylon, it’s a durable and lightweight addition to your Mini Cooper’s cooling system.
