I have an R56 mini with an n14 and I want to get it to 300 hp, but I'm at a loss for what specific things I need to upgrade so the engine and transmission can both make and survive that power. I already know that I need full bolt ons, a bigger turbo, a better intercooler, better clutch, and...

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...
