Default Newbie - intro

Hi all,
My name is Brendan and I'm over in Ireland. I've been into my minis for a number of years and currently have 2 in my stable - a 1973 innocenti Cooper Export 1330 that's been totally rebuilt and a 1976 clubman which has also received a a similar amount of effort.
Having progressed thru the various levels of BMC base A serious power units ...I now have a serious urge for something Honda powered.

The spec of my cars are as follows:
Innocenti - 1330 with Omega pistons, rimflow valves, mild road cam, 1.5 roller tip rockers on twin 1.5 SU carbs with K&N pancake filters. Oh, and it's on coil springs.

Clubby- 1330 with Mega pistons, running 11.5-1 c/r, SC 7 port alloy billet head, custom ITB's, Kalver ST re13 cam with 1.5 roller tip rockers. Running on 10x7, 2 pce. Force Racing converted exacton alloys.

Use my clubby for trackdays although TBH - it's far too good for that.😊
Both cars have been magazine featured over here.

Anyway looking forward to picking the brains of 16v owners here on the forum over the next while to help me decide what to do and hoping to see a number of you and your cars over here in May at the IMM2017.

Would be great to meet you and any other members.
