I know what you mean but I think the aim of this is to explain to all car enthusiasts exactly what's happening. Many people who don't know minis will probably find its cramped engine bay and unusual designs and features a bit of a mystery with out it explained!

Just that they are so slow.. 2 episodes without any real work to the car..

 

Don't like it don't watch it.

 

 

That's specious reasoning... how is he suppose to know what the content without watching it? ;D

I found episode 3 a little more interesting. However, there are supercharger pulleys out there to suit the ribbed MPI belts.. namely from the company they bought the kit from.

Wondered how no decompression plates or modded head was used - something to be a limiting factor in a blower build surely? That said i've been a massive MCM fan for several years now.

I've been pondering this. Also why they haven't heat wrapped the manifold to keep the under bonnet temps down on what will be an extremely hot engine bay due to the charge temps, air conditioning and lack of chargecooling. I'm also keen to see how they will sort out the breathing now they have removed the crank breather.

Probably breath only through the crankcase breather. If I were to do that mod I'd run a beather from the fuel pump too.

Why? It's got an electric fuel pump and the tank already has a breather..

He'd benefit from having a breather and a catch tank linked from the rocker cover. It would also give a better opportunity to get rid of moisture vapour from the internals.

I think the guy above meant a crankcase breather from the redudant fuel pump area on the block....to replace the one now removed from the timing chain area.

Some discussions over compression ratio this week.  As they are going to be running E85 and a modern ECU they don't think any reduction is required.

Brilliant episode as always nice to see them working things out especially with it being a japan base.

Does anyone know whether haltec engine management is used in the UK tuning world?

mcm is the only time I've really come across them.
