What sort of condition is the engine in? Mileage? Is it a runner at the moment?

I could be interested ... for the right price, of course! :o


(FYI - The full conversion would also probably need the tank, fuel lines & radiator etc...! :))

As said, depends on condition and history, if good could be worth up to £750

Depends on the condition of things to be honest:

The going rate is:

MPi engine is £250-£400
Subframe with hubs/shafts/calipers/etc... about £40-£90
A complete unmolested loom is £40-£80
MPi Fuel tank with pump and sender £35-85
MPi Radiator with hoses £50

This is roughly the going from on ebay and the forum, so pick a price depending on the condition.

I just bought a 1998 Cooper Sport engine/gearbox/front subby/complete front brake setup/driveshafts/suspension arms for 400 quid. The engine has 45,000mi on it.

I'm also interested in exactly this... but would ideally want a bit more on the condition and history (and see it running around in some form or other...) before putting any offers in! - was it your car previous to this?

Thanks!
