What year of mini?!

Do you have a stage one kit fitted?

What air filter do you have fitted (cone or KnN in the standard filter box?)

What is the emissions on the MOT?

I know I'm giving you more questions but there are a few variables from car to car.

Commonly an air leak.

 


Where would it leak air?

 

Where there are gaskets and where there are vacuum and breather pipes if something's split.
