Exactly what we have, this is our second one. The engines have notorious faults, piston ringlands, timing chain, and plastic cooling parts come to mind. If you keep up with the water pipe in the back and the thermostat, you might get some long life. The one I have now was supposed to be an easy oil leak fix, turns out the guy overheated it badly (cracked water pipe). Machine shop did the head, I did new CP pistons and gaskets, still had issues. Cracked cylinder wall. I recouped about half of what I sunk into the motor parting it out.
Long story short, I'm putting a Honda K24 in it with matching transmission. It's been done in the previous gen Mini but not this one. Uncharted territory...
Wow good luck! Do share once you complete it!

Off road more and you'll have plenty to repair and upgrade....
