  1. mcs' project

    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...

  3. Too much engine oil.

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I've had a bit of an issue and am quite worried... I did an oil check the other week and there was no oil whatsoever on the dipstick (not too worried since I rarely drive the car), so I bought a 4 litre bottle of oil to fill it up. Being rather clumsy and with little thought I just poured the...

  5. All I wanted Were S Spokes & A Burger King.

    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...

  9. Larger injectors for the R50 now available !

    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...
