Hi Miniwade. Very nice build so far..
Looking forward to seeing it on those wheels.
Question - what is the length of your TB from the head to the bellmouth?
Cheers Dodge

Thanks for popping out to the shed in this weather
Thats actually a pretty good length. Did you have to cut that amount out of the bulkhead because they are straight (as they should be) or are you allowing for quite a deep airbox? From what I can gather 25mm over the trumpets would be a minimum.
I am thinking of ITB's but don't want to cut the bulkhead (if possible) on my replacement shell.
Cheers - Dodge (Ian)

not sure on what thickness it is but was thicker than what i cut out so would guess at 2mm.

if my car doesnt make 160+bhp i will be disapointed and will eiher put a b18 in it or supercharge what i already have. i just want to get the car altogether first then i can swap and build the perfect engine to suit my needs which will be trackdays and a little blast on a weekend, i wouldnt turbo it though as i think that would be the wrong application for what im trying to achieve.

supercharging would be my preference as its alot smother power delivery unlike turbos which come on boost then break traction which i dont think the mini will have any problems doing without a turbo so god knows what it would be like with one.
as said if i make 160 ish bhp i will be happy

little update
i have managed to drop the engine in and test fit to see everything is going to clear and thankfully its as it should be, even the aftermarket manifold will clear which i wasnt expecting so thats a bonus,
also my alloy fuel tank has arrived and collected my fibreglass doors so plenty to get on with now, just wish the bloody weather would warm up a bit

a few pics











and one of the the drivers door fitted



now i know everything is all clear i can take it apart and get the bulkhead ready for paint
