I am new to the mini forum and i have decided to join up so i can share with you my project. my supercharged Rover V8 engined mini flame.
I have some pictures that i will add at a later date to show you my progress so far.
i would really appreciate input from anybody who has done engine conversions and help is needed with things like strength and support when im cutting the bulkhead.. going to be front engine rear wheel drive =D also i would like some contacts for people who have done the v8 conversion themselves.. if anybody knows who they are and how i can contact them.
the rough intended spec of my car is as follows..
supercharged 3.5 rover v8
lt77 gearbox.. form landrover disco or triump tr7
front metro turbo hubs vented discs and 4 pot calipers
standard mini hubs and disc on rear with driveshafts into a final drive unit
1989 flame shell.. bulkhead extensively modified.. braced with roll cage type supports
and obviously alot more mods.. far to many to list.. lol
many thanks, spencer
