Again I am new to my 1978 classic mini with 1275 A MG Midget engine - love it - but thinking I want a bit more torque in the mid range - 1500 - 6500 - not too concerned about the top end. Be interested in thoughts as I have heard a lot and like this forum as most of my answers have come from here.
So, based on what I painstaking gathered about my mini below - interested in thoughts and will reply to any further questions. I am reading D.Vizard's mini bible and getting a lot of good solid ideas but, want to know what guys/gals have done themselves.
Here are the specs and welcome any and all feedback - thx so much in advance for those that have the time to deal with a newbie..
