As my other thread is over 40 pages long i thought i would make another thread,

 

old thread here> http://www.theminifo...8-my-998-turbo/

 

 

for those who dont know my build its based around my Austin Mini City E 998cc

ive had alot of problems with the turbo burning oil which was down to a poorly designed oil drain 

 

so engine out again

so i gave up on trying to fit the drain into the mechanical fuel pump hole so i welded a drilled a boss onto the gearbox

Fixed the miss fire!!

Was the part throttle lean off pipe, I cut it in half and blanked both ends off and it runs well!!

A couple of problems that need looking into like it backfiring and stalling, I don't know what that is about :(

And I got through a set of pads in one day :(
