Hows this coming along?

Looks interesting,had a look at an imp conversion last year,mini gearbox,imp top end,had a one off crank made for it,was a lovely bit of kit.

I was running a 1600 xflow in a mk1 escort a few years back ,went very well.I would think that one in a mini would be great fun.I like the fact that its not a full on engine change either,still got a hint of an a-series there.
