As far as I know you can't convert the dizzy, you need the turbo item. Well I suppose you could convert it but you'd need all the parts from a turbo dizzy, so it'd be pointless.

You can use either the turbo carb or rebuild an NA carb with a turbo rebuild kit.

You'd be better investing in a mapped system like MegaJolt.

Aldon will alter the advance curve in the dizzy for you, but as Wil said Megajolt is a far better option.

i've been looking into megajolt, it seems that you cant get a complete kit you need to get the ford setup i.e coil, EDIS Ignition module and leads.
is their anyplace that can do a complete kit or do you have to source the parts?

I'm sure someone could sell you all the bits, but you'll save money sourcing the bits yourself.

trigger-wheels seems a good place for a large portion of the parts, and the pricing seems pretty reasonable

i have compiled a small list to get me started on the turbo:
- Bolt-on trigger wheel
- EDIS 4 kit
- Megajolt ECU V4 kit
- Distributor blank plug
- AEM Gauge (Wideband UEGO Controller 30-4100, air/fuel mixture)
- turbo fuel pressure regulator

a good place to start is trigger-wheels if you go to the engine managment you can build a kit for the mini which is pretty much all you need to get you started with the megajolt

You need the Megajolt unit, trigger wheel, crank sensor, Edis unit & a coilpack. The Edis, crank sensor & coilpack can all be removed from Fords from around 95-96 iirc ?
I'm going to be doing a writeup & fitting guide for my website as soon as i get time to fit mine onto my engine rebuild.

Did someone say blanking plugs ?

Also the advance curve for a turbo is pressure related rather than vacuum which is the norm for Naturally Aspirated engines........ However an ECU is the best way to go :) I did my first one over 13 years ago, and would not want to go back to a dizzy :(

And Trigger Wheels do have a fantastic new wheel specifically for the Mini :P

Massive thread revival, did you ever get round to this Phil? I had a good search on your website but couldn’t find anything.

Thanks.

There was quite a few Megajolt topics. I think I even did a bit of a one myself. If you're starting from scratch also look at other options, like Sparkduino, MJ works well enough, but those EDIS bits will be ever harder to track down.
