Recently I found the Mini 30 we bought new in 1989.
Changed the subframe ..... as horrible a job as I remember 30 years ago!!
I decided to tune it a little ..... stage 4 cylinder head & a Stage 1 exhaust kit. Does go a load better now, but I have got the tuning bug now. I would really appre ciate any pointers on what to do next - twin carbs, camshafts??

A performance distributor will help eventually as well, or a good re-tune of your own.
Stick with it mate, 998's are great. You can get great, useable power out of them if you try.

I have not had it rolling road tuned yet, just left that to a local garage who races Mini`s, so I hope that will suffice. The needle was supplied by mini Speed in Byfleet Surrey, who also supplied the head & stage 1 kit so I presume that will be OK. After fitting all that kit, performance was dramatically improved though
Does anyone know a place near Rutland that I can get it rolling road tuned? Up here its mainly 4 x 4 specialists & Volvo dealerships!! Also any one recommend a local club that I can join??
