Should do. It's an unusual choice these days, actually it has always been unusual. big block like the 2.0L one aren't they?


2.0L turbo build here http://www.16vminiclub.com/forums/sh...?t=7954&page=8

Link to the build thread in my last post which I searched for to point you in the right direction.

Someone selling some gearbox mounts here:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/mini-c20x...i:173918540510

TBH They are not that hard to make. 2 x gearbox mounts and 2 x engine does the job well. You can buy the stainless cups and HD Cotton reel type mounts from Allspeed.

Someone selling some shafts too. Not so pretty: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/pair-of-m...cAAOSwjlVc7CzV

Cavalier arrived to day, its a 1800 carb version, but badged as a injection, should actually make life easier, goes well no smoke no knocking rumbles or rattles, im still going to replace clutch, belt kit , i may even refurb the head, even though it runs nice 67k miles, leave or refurb the head?
I should think the mini will be quick with this 1800 engine in, fingers crossed
