Hello my name is David Rodrigues and i am new in this world...

I recently had my driving license and i bought a R53...

Its all stock except the pulley that i put a 15% ALTA, and the crown spoke in black it came with the R-Xlite 16"

Next thing will be a induction ar kit what you prefer ? ALTA or GTT or JCW or DAVEF ?

This is my machine:




PS-Sorry abouy my poor english
Welcome not a bad first car nice one, as for the filter, I wouldn't use the GTT to filter my piss. Dave F is the way to go, inexpensive and the best gains while retaining a complete stock look, the whine is also more addictive. But i'll say it first :lol: you need to kill that wheel gap.

so for you Dave F is the best ?
Yes from all the testing done, the too best filters are the JCW box and the DaveF. They both give simliar results, they both are the best at keeping heat down. But the dave wins for bang for buck, but you wouldn't be disapointed with ether. Do a search and you find all the back to back tests done with almost every filter option.

Welcome to MT :)

Nice MINI. Personally I would have kept the X-lites and have them sprayed gloss black. Much more stylish and they are a much lighter wheel than the Crown Spokes, so better handling.

Yes, Dave.f is a must have, but so are coilovers. Imagine your car lowered on coilovers and on gloss black X-lites = WIN

The Dave.F was tested at the Evolve day recently back to back against the Alta if memory serves me right, think the Dave.F picked up around 4bhp but others will confirm... so yes, Dave.F all the way and he's just stated another thread selling a new batch so get on it mate.

Welcome to MT and nice blank canvas you have there!

^^ Yes Ben it was 4WHP over the Alta, the torque was also up throughout the entire rev range and the car was still adapting too, but it got too hot in the end to continue.
