Hi guys

So the Mini lost the clutch and is sitting for 3 weeks to be serviced. Got around a lot of maintenance parts so it will come healthier i think.

Anyone used or is currently running HISPEC? A friend had these lost in his place and i took them. Funny fact i think they are the R53 specific kit. I noticed the oil entry in the back, the oil travels the caliper inside to the other side? Never saw this before yesterday so....

The car fucked up the clutch bearing into pieces. The clutch was already int he end of life and the bearing worn the guide tube so another piece to buy. Went to MINI and bought it along with rod bolts and a supercharger seal.

The engine is off to do the work. Bought these beauties to change. I wanted to buy ARP but theres no for delivery and i needed them quickly.

Already making my own induction kit with a BMC filter and bought an intake hose as my OEM is split.

Another thing to fit an AEM V2 Meth kit! :)

Got some Aero skirt and front bumper from Thomas at 1320, need time to refurbish them and paint.

I looked from the bottom and the engine looks in great condition, i also took a bearing and there was litle friction signs but new is new.

If fitting the race bearings I'd wait for the ARP rod bolts personally. The valve colour is normal for a standard car, it will be slightly darker if custom mapped, I'd still strip and clean them and re-lap plus new seals etc.
