I thought you knew Shaun better than that! :rolleyes:

He'll want the fastest way, 0-100. Country lanes around Devon, you can only do that anyway. Flat out or go home... :kseries:

Shaun, all of the gearbox choices are higher geared than most Mini's. The G4 box has a close ratio set but with 13" wheels has top speed of 110mph. It's what I originally had in Phoenix. You would...

Shaun, the problem is there is so much choice. It depends on its use. I still think the C6 box is a good choice. But the OP doesn't. There are lower or higher geared options. I am running the C4,...

Keith, I do use that but buy from Euro car parts when a decent discount is on. It's 16 on there!

At the end of the day, it depends on its use. If you are spending a lot of time on the motorway journeys then the S6 is the best option. This does mean stripping 2 boxes and rebuilding them though....

Back on topic! :)

Been to see the guy this week who's welding it. He's done the 4 corners where the subframe mounts are. He's cut them away and rebuilt them. The heal board has been cut and...

Had three alternators on Phoenix. Bearings are a pain. I know not Denso but still not good.

Can you fit a big pulley like mine? would help with high revving engine. :rolleyes:

Something to consider. Ring the insurance company before adding one. Quite a lot bump a premium on for a caged car.

My experience is so far in my life I don't feel it necessary. I have done a few...

Ben is right. The link Dan posted is a MEMS 3 one. You want the earlier MEMS 2 type with square plug.

In last 2 years, I have had 3 of these. I have to say though, my fast idle was only about...

Did it work ok at any point since being in the Mini?

If yes, then likely a component failure.

If not then more likely wiring.

The rear cylinder bore size is not really important to get a firm brake pedal. If like me you find under hard braking the rears lock up, you may either need a smaller size or fit a bias valve.

I have to comment but haven't got the R65 box needed.

The VVC box (code C4) is what I am currently running in Phoenix. It's great for track use but revs a lot on motorway so you would not gain...

I agree that old fluid won't help but as Ben has recently built this and the fact he states it's been bled a few times, I think unlikely to be old fluid causing issues. :rolleyes:

Yes Shaun. That's correct. He's going to turn the boost up after the next race and is going for over 600bhp.



More than welcome. Just PM me a day/time. :)

I am aiming for a fast road/track car. Not fussed if it's not the fastest at either as you need thousands to chase that position. I did like the 5th gear in Phoenix when I had the diesel box fitted....

The ratios are wider in the low gears and closer the higher you go. In my brain think that's a good thing as the turbo engine can develop much more power and torque lower down the rev range. It's...
