  1. The Projects
    Well, after some thinking and a few mods I've started modifying my '06 JCW R53. Big mods started some weeks ago when I ordered the 4-2-1 with 100 cells cat to Mini Motorsport UK. I also got the 225hp remap soon to fit a camshaft. Hope to get after that around 235-240hp. Dry battery's been...
  2. R53 General
    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?
  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    Clutch Slave Cylinder Bleeding Anyone done this before and have some tips? Been watching the following youtube clip but not sure how you go about compressing the piston. Do you: 1. Disconnect the fluid line and clutch linkage 2. Remove the slave cylinder 3. Compress the piston to evacuate...
  4. Engine & Drivetrain
    Got a new BPV which i'm looking to fit at the weekend. Looks fairly simple in principle but maybe a bit of a ball ache to get to? Anyone got any advice when fitting it? Or has anyone made a guide? :thumbup:
  5. Suspension, Wheels & Brakes
    I have been thinking for a while about fitting a strut brace and eventually settled on an M7 due to the protection it offers to the strut tops. Well I was gobsmacked at how much my nearside strut top had mushroomed upwards. The offside was okay - yes most potholes are at the edge of the road...
  6. The Projects
    This project was meant to be different from my half arsed attempts in the past. The saxo's and the r5gtt's that went before it always ran out of money and were sold on before I had a chance to finish them. I've almost hit a wall with this one already but the mods will continue coming as long as...

    Why is it not the case that direct injection engines use a catch can/oil separator from factory?
  8. Faults & Fixes
    As per the title really. At constant speed its completely fine but under hard acceleration i get vibration through the front end of the car , mainly steering wheel. Any ideas? I have a feeling after searching around online it could be a driveshaft problem.. Its worst in 2nd gear above 2000rpm...

    When fitting coilovers would I need drop links?:mellow:
  10. How To Guides
    As above: I have an R50 with a standard bumper. Bought the lower grille pre-modified to fit straight in Cheers guys
  11. Engine & Drivetrain
    For all those of you who spend time and money for your N/A R50, i have good news. The stock R50 injectors are very small, at 178cc/[email protected] bar (Bosch part number 0280155991). Anything more than a full exhaust system and intake, like a camshaft, will take them to 100% duty cycle at high rpm if...

  14. Exterior
    Strange request really :laugh:, Anyone able to tell me the size of the tow eye thread. Looking for a bolt to fit but struggling to find something suitable :blink:
  15. MINI Chat
    Hi all, there are a lot of people loving lows on this site, and I wondered if anyone had done/considered fitting air bag suspension to a MINI in the UK?
