HI, I'm Mike from the Cayman Islands.   just bought a 98 mini out of Japan, and its on its way here.  SHould be here end of April.  


I plan on doing a few things in the near future, but waiting to see what is needed on the car first.   Just want a little more HP out of it.  It is automatic though.

Hello Mike.


You won't want to hear this, but with the "grunt" of a Hummer to satisfy a lust for power, and a Supra "ditto" for speed, may I suggest that your Right Hand Drive Mini would best be enjoyed "As a standard automatic Mini".


If you want more power in a Mini, better to start with a manual gear change.  Although the Autos can be driven with verve, they were aimed at elderly or urban drivers.


Don't get me wrong, the gear boxes will stand more power, but if it were to malfunction, there aren't many who know how to fettle them.
