Interesting slide throttle arrangement and wonderful sound.  Some air filtration would no doubt help with engine longevity though.

I was going to reply that as much as I like Mini's I'd need a lot more than £35k before i'd think about spending that much on an engine.  

 

Then it went what and now I'm not so sure.

 

Crazy sound and amazing acceleration through the rev range.  It's pulling a pretty high rev limit too isn't it?

 

Lot of money not to run a filter mind!

surely it would have been better to have the injectors after the butterflys ? you can see petrol blobs forming on them etc.
