hehe cheers, hes off the road at the mo though, ive killed the old engine in only 3500 miles, so im getting a new engne today and that will be going in next weekend, and he also needs some new dampers, as the old ones arnet stiff enough for me, so im selling my cobra drivers seat to fund them (check out the for sale bit for info) he should be a quite quick mini when hes back on the road, i cant wait!

it was a 998 that was put in by the last owner to convert him from a monga-matic. but he didnt do any servicing or anything really in the few years he had him. but my new engine is a 30000 mile 998 which the stage 2 head came off, :) all for £50 and i got the head a few weeks ago and only paied £50 for that as well, so its basically a stage 2 engine for £100, hehe
