Supercharger in and man does she fly....
Wondering if a k12 micra would work instead of a k11 one
smudger068Sure their are more engines readily available. But how much taller is the engine than a micra k11.

Hi all , what carb for 1275cc with evo 1 cam and lighter flywheel, twin 1 1/4 su or HIF44
MrBounceHIF44. Twins for show really. I've had both. HIF44 will make almost the same power but will cost half as much.

GT JimmyMy engine builder recommended a hif44 with a bbw needle on my 1310 build with an evo1

Its almost 2020 and people still don't seam to understand how ebay works. Two more morons added to my block list this evening.
Does anyone know what the colour code for Blaze orange and were I can get hold of some.
ItsaminithingBlaze = BLVC16
Have you specifically chosen this colour to paint your Mini as it's an early 70's colour.
In 1980 you would have had Vermillion BLVC118
Supposedly a red but looks orange on the car.

I have an automatic front subframe, and want to fit a manual engine, I could purchase the subframe mounts needed to allow a Manuel engine to be fitted, has anyone done this and if so what's it like, any advise would be appreciated.
FlyingScotYep easy stuff, I have a JDM which was auto and is now manual
