right thought id start a new fresh thread as the last one was shit, due to a new jobb (manager in selfridges :)) i now catch the train to work and the CS sits on the drive all week waiting to been mullered on a week end, so with more money to spend on it and less reason to worry about it as a DD + my mrs picks up her nice black TT tommoro :) the aim of 200+whp is in mind, may take some time but hey.
I wont bore you with every picture ive taken but heres how it stands atm
2005 MCS in hyper blue/white
dave F
Janspeed Mani + decat
15% Alta pulley
spax springs
OMP upper brace
17" Rota Torque
205/40/17 Yoko prada spec 2s
pre mani and de cat the car ran 186whp
on its way:
R56 S claipers, discs, pads
HEL transarent blue R56 lines
Aero front bumper
CCd or black roof etc
Joey mod
satin black wheels
The way it stands


this is the vision :)


so list of bits i want to do is IC, Bushes, custom cooper style exhaust, cams, tune nothing major i just want to piss off a few mapped STs or something :)
comments good and bad are welcome and any ideas feel free to throw them at me

If you've run 186whp before the manifold was put on, then your closer to your 200whp goal than that already. I'd say cam, injectors and tune, and you comfortably home and dry, with a bit to spare :thumbup:.

1320 only do WHP and every engine is different Adam must have a strong one...I will speak to Thomas regardng gp ic and maybe a 17% pulley, im very happy with how the car goes bu another 20ponies at the wheels would surprise a lot of cars, I've had some funny looks from 350z and boxster drivers thinking "why is that mini still with me" lol

good luck mate! and congratulations with the job... I want to do cam + tune as well to get close to the 200whp mark, but it will have to wait a bit more...
