My mini is fitted with an mg metro engine. It still has the standard needle, bdl. I was wondering if it should be changed. Car has a k and n element inside the drilled airbox, maniflow manifold with stainless exhaust. I have a bdk at home. When the car went for Mot the guy said it was running weak, on the emissions test. I tweaked the mixture screw but now the jet sits very low in the carb throat.

The correct needle for your car will be the one determined from rolling road testing and tuning. Anything else is a guess.

I helped a colleague trailer a car 120miles for your new last weekend. You have to be in it to win it!
