Not sure what happened to my images but I can only put it down to Google Pushing their Google+ service over Picasa (that I was using) as it seems the URLs/permissions have all changed, sorry about that...

Anyway, a lot has changed....

Still need get the -4 rear adjustable camber arms fitted so I can lower it a bit more and there is an inch+ left on the front/rear dampers

Major change was it broke last year, so it was time to go balls deep on the engine after breaking a piston ring and cracks in the original head casting causing a misfire/failure. I got a little carried away so heres the new spec list of the whole car:

Engine - Built By 1320MINI
#1320Mini Bytetronik Remap
#13.20% KMT Pulley
#GP Intercooler
#JCW/M Intake & ITG
#Bosch 550cc Fuel Injectors
#OBX 4-2-1 Header
#John Cooper Motorsport Cat Back Exhaust
#Neil Roper Ported & Polished Big Valve Head
#G&S Enlarged Inlet/Exhaust Valves
#HKS Decked & Bored Block
#Wössner Oversize Forged Pistons
#ARP Rod & Head bolts
#Mahle Motorsport Bearings
#Teflon M45
#CatCam
#Mocal Oil Cooler

Drivetrain:
#ClutchMasters FX400 Clutch
#ClutchMasters Lightweight Flywheel
#Super/Powerflex Poly engine & gearbox mounts

Suspension
#KW Clubsport Coilovers
#KW Clubsport Top Mounts
#Hotchkis Competition 25mm Rear ARB
#Super/Powerflex Poly bushes
#OMP Lower Strut Brace
#KAVS Motorsport front arm spacers/Roll centre adjusters
#Adjustable Rear Control Arms

Brakes
#R56 S Brake Calipers
#R56 S Standard Discs
#Castrol SRF Fluid
#Performance Friction Z Rated Pads

Wheels & Tyres
#Bronze GRID V 16x8.0J ET20
#Hankook RS212 in 215/45 R16
#Stud conversion with Muteki SR48 Steel Nuts

Exterior
#JCW Carbon Mirrors
#Aero Grill
#Black Beltline
#De-badged Rear
#De-Rear wiper
#De-Chromed rear lights
#Body Coloured Headlight Rings
#Body Coloured Side Grills
#TRS Tow strap

Interior
#Sparco Evo Fixed Bucket Seats
#Buddy Club Type B Shift Knob
#Scangauge II
#3 Spoke Sports Wheel
#Alpine Head unit
#JCW Mats
#Short Shift kit
#rear seat delete
#Innovate MTX-L AFR Gauge
#Stack Oil Temperature Gauge
#OMP WRC Steering Wheel & Quick release boss

So the car is on its way to having the tune finished but early results show a strong result of 235WHP with just 13-14psi of boost on the modest 13.20% pulley. Great job by 1320MINI of Cambridgeshire UK.

Couple of videos, one that gives an idea of its crazy sounding cold start (trimmed to show slow idle too) and another chasing a friend of mines 575bhp Nissan GTR Black edition...

Some newer pics now I've brought it a little lower, backs are rubbing on compression so need more camber as I want it lower. The fronts have less than an inch of thread left. Think 205/45R16s are next but not sure if KW clubsports have the lows to pull it off?

I was taken out for a ride in this yesterday. I didn't think a Mini could drift. I was also relieved when we had to slow down for traffic.

Did you get the horn hooked up on that wheel? I got mine today but the included wiring is way off.
