Default B series Inlet to clear bulkhead

http://magnusmotorsports.com/product...d-mini-cooper/

a guy on FB Honda Powered Mini page posted this link, it appears that those with deep pockets can now buy a purpose built inlet for a B series that clears the bulkhead on a Mini

Looks really good....until I saw the price

Edit - Also there is no confirmation what frame this has been fabricated on, I doubt it'll be Allspeed.

I would expect it'll be for the Minitec frame but my understanding is that they mount the engine further back than Allspeed do (hence why the standard exhaust manifold fits) because it's designed around LHD so there is no clash of diff against Steering rack the RHD conversions suffer (and hence the Minitec RHD conversion panels that have to move the rack back).

If that's the case then it should give clearance on an Allspeed frame but who's the first to spend the best part of a grand (before taxes) to give it a try ???

I thought it’d be based on a minitec frame too. It’ll be interesting to see if superfastminis/minitec start stocking this soon.

I think price wise it’s clear that it’d be much cheaper to cut and weld a standard inlet manifold like some have done in the past. Although still costly I guess

It would be interesting to see the performance gains with running that inlet manifold though.

I had paid local shop to cut and weld up my skunk2 intake.
It cost me less than $500 (including the new intake)
