Mse4 Minispares Cylinder Head
Posted 09 September 2019 - 09:30 PM
I’m due to collect my new MSE 4 cylinder head from minispares tomorrow with a set of 1.5 high lift rockers.
Any idea on torque/ bhp increase on below spec please ?

So long as you set the compression ratio to around 10:1 or slightly higher and run on 98 ron petrol, you will get a reasonable gain.
However, the gains will be limited by virtue of the fact that you are retaining the standard and very mild camshaft. That spec of head and induction/exhaust system really needs at least an MG Metro/Kent 266 or similar to release the potential of the head and induction/ex. systems.
The offset rockers will help a bit and if asked to guess I would think around 80 to 83-ish bhp with some increase in mid-range torque.
