Good evening mini enthusiasts:
Im probably just going to cause trouble but every other post ive seen seems to ignore Craven Speeds argument: CravenSpeed Lightened & Enlarged Crank Pulley
'This pulley is safe to use even though you are swapping from a ‘damped’ pulley to a single mass, solid...
I’m facing a problem I been working on for some times now (around 2-3 mouths)
but I can’t figure out how to solve it. And it’s getting to the point where I’m about to throw the car out of a cliff :D
Ok, let’s me explain now. I have a R53 facelift from 2005, I bought last year. As...
So Ive been getting a lot of hate for my Alta intake….by no means do I love the Alta and would be willing to swap for say a Dave F. But so far no ones given me any reason why i should do so. Ive taken a good look at it and also spoken to my tuner about it and neither of us can see any issues...
Big turbo kit for r56 S mini.
Used only for 2000km before the customer change the car.
This has the benefits of the stock turbo in that it bolts on with no additional parts or modifications to parts. It makes more HP than the JCW turbo (roughly 15% more), the responsiveness is very similar to...
Hi i have already bought a 17% Alta supercharger pulley but i havent fitted it yet as i am planning to remove my engine at christmas to make the job easier. Was just wondering what peoples opions were with running a ALta 3 % crank pulley and the Alta alternatorpulley with a Gates belt. I am also...
The following attachment is a 4-page pdf diary or log of what I've done to my R56. it's still a work in progress, but most of the planned upgrades are installed. I'll update it as milestones are reached. Hope it's useful to other newbies.
Shall be fitting a Dave F this weekend (yes replacing the Alta:cursing:) Quick question, I take it I will have to refit the plastics engine bay/bulkhead divider, but will i have to cut a hole in it to provide direct flow into the back of the Dave F or does the OE hole do the job?

Hello folks. In 2007 I turned 17 and had my hopes up on getting a Mini for a couple years prior.
Once the appropriate funds were I picked up a 2002 Mini ONE in Pure Silver. It ended up looking like this..
After 2 years of ownership It became evident it was a Friday afternoon build. In the 2...
So after 6ish months of problems the GP has gone back to Rybrook Stratford after a very good px offer.
Picked up a black R56 S with Aero Kit and a few nice options. It’s very different to drive as it doesn’t feel as urgent as the R53 which I miss but the R56 isn’t awful and does good MPG's...

Alta Induction Kit....REDUCED!!!
This Alta Induction Kit was fitted to an 07 mcs for only 3 weeks and approx 700 miles. The only reason for its removal was that I p/ex'd the car for a GP.
The kit has a black hose, black sponge and red metal shroud. It was bought from and fitted by Lohen...
