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 fit inside the car behind the passanger seat with a battery cut off.

BRAID Winrace Lightweight wheels with Hankook RS2s in 215/40/17.

KMT 15% pulley.

ITG foam filter.

GP IC.

Brake Ducts, thanks to Mini Torque (GB).

R56 JCW BK + Goodridge lines + MOTUL RBF600.

Orranje Performance G-Wing 1.

KW V2 + Vorschlag Camber plates + H-Sport rear adjustable arms.

OMP lower bar + Forge upper bar + Convertible bars.

Wiecher's CrMo roll cage.

Everything's still in process. But I'd like to thank all the people that have been helping me out. Thanks to everyone on MT who helped me, and specially to Berthil. He's been a reference all the time.

Thanks to everyone who's doing projects and share the info. I don't know if you notice how big is your help to people around the world.

Still not sure about engine, so that'll be the last thing to tune.

Now diet's starting seriously. Stereo will stay in as the exhaust sound is a bit too loud and from home to track can be sometimes a bit annoying. What I hope to get some help is on those metal parts that are useless in the interior.

Exterior parts to get at some point in the future:

· Orranje Double Skin bonnet.
· Battle Performance R53 front bumper with R56 Challenge lip. (I'm in love for quite long ago!)
...


Keep working on it.

Once road legal with the rollcage the project continues.

Next week, I'll be removing some interior bits.

Next step, Quaife and a new clutch soon to be fitted in the car.

My main concern is to get the best handling possible so lightweighting it and improving suspension will be done after the clutch and the differential.
