Isnt the turbo / engine from that, the one that went into Rich's (odwyer) car? If so, I think as part of that deal, a challenge engine went in the other direction... wonder if thats still in the car...

Steve needs to do another big mini project so that I can buy it off him when he's finished :lol: He does good mini builds :thumbup1:

Yes the engine that went out was turbo and AFAIK yes to OD's car. I don't know about the engine that's in it now. It's not slow though :) When I get up to 1320, I'm sure we will find out, unless there's something I can check myself relatively easily?

Haha a 1320 turbo now would be pretty epic too, get onto him!

Good to see you back in MINI mate :thumbup1:

Did you buy it from a guy called Adam? (he was called Boski on here)
Cheers bud, glad to see you're still at it too! :)
No I didn't but it looks rather like that now, bar the FL lights.

I believe this is after the swap where the turbo engine headed in Rich's direction. I doubt it was the subject of another engine swap so I would assume the JCW race engine is still in there... suprised the history youve got on the car doesnt clarify?

Interesting, I would be surprised that it's still in there from the way it goes, but I will have a read of what came with it :thumbup1:

Its got a random stock S engine in it now. Greig sold the race motor to Vhyper, Greig then sold the car as a near stock Cooper S to his mrs.
