Unfortunately in Scotland there is a dearth of performance classic car engine tuners so I'm wondering who the furthest North would be that could take a look at my race 1380 during the off-season? Any suggestions?

Keith Calver, in Yorkshire, might know of someone up your way.

Did Keith not move to Norfolk? I would have made the journey down to Yorkshire But Norfolk is just that bit too far.

Ah, yes, so he has;  but he still might have remembered someone up your way.

I’d ask The Mini Works in Edinburgh
http://www.theminiworks.org/

There’s also TBR in York but I have no experience of them
