Cheers....Just started tuning the engine and it feels really fast!! Still a long way to go tho.

Floored it in 2nd all the way up to 7500 rpm and it sounded amazing. Cant wait to get it to 9500 rpm :-
The engine seems perfect for a mini.....very little vibration compared to my old A series and plenty of power when you need it.

well...the car has been off the road for a while due to a duff engine. Should be getting a replacement at the weekend. Also have new wheels, arches, bike exhaust and fibreglass front to go on.

Will get some more vids on ASAP

Car still off the road. Been modifying the subframe to fit the eaton supercharger i bought! Also had to modify my front engine mount due to my new engine being a mk1 with slightly different mounting holes.
