well i had my first breakdown yesterday
after hours of fiddling it turned out to be a baggy connection onto one of the relays and a broken wire on the alternator plug
managed to get it sorted and all is good again.
also been having a think and i have been hit by the bug of wanting more power
so over the next few months im going to be building a high comp b18 for it, not sure of the exact spec im going for as were still in the designing stage but im wanting to go for as close to 200bhp as i can get.
i know i could stick a low pressure turbo kit on there for next to nothing money wise but i want to stick with the na setup as i like the sound and the power delivery
wish me luck.

What sort of money are we looking at?
If you could supply the charger brackets I could do the rest myself
Definately interested though mate

Yeah if you could get me a price that would be great
If its a good price then it may swing me from a b18 build
Just looming at your build thread I see your running an extended front whereas I'm not so mounting a cooler maybe a bit difficult and I would have to either relocate or remove my servo.
Decisions decisions

I can always have a ride out
Wouldn't be bringing my mini down though as I'd be deaf by the time I arrived

oh i will thats for sure
you got me very interested in this now so if when you find out what the cost is for your brackets and pulley system and fire me a pm over that would be great.
do you not run a servo at all on yours?
also looking at the way you have fitted the charger i reckon if i could be bothered i could run the charger with the itb's

Yer I was thinking I could mount the charger differently so it sit beings the itb but I need to see the car in person, we should have a meet up and discuss options , where is a half way point for us ? I'm in rugby

right a little update on my mini, well i say little quite a large update really i have only gone and treated myself to b18c type r jdm engine for the mini
i know i have had great success with the b16 but i got hit by the bug of wanting more power so the 200bhp standard jdm b18 should do the trick
i have the engine already and has been stripped down to a bare block as i am getting new high comp pistons and rings and basically a full rebuild with a couple of nice upgraded parts
im hoping with the high comp pistons and my twm itb's and a good map i can reach up to 210bhp but we shall see.
anyone want to buy a good strong b16 with integra type r dc2 cams which has run a 13.3 in my mini?

OMG ...You really have got too much doshy ma bongo!!


Was this the conversation you had with the missus???

'honestly darling I lent my mini out and he has wrecked it!! Blown the engine, and it over heated. It needs a spanking new type r engine in it now........

'no honey it won't cost that much', Ive bought you some flowers.....

Fair play to you, the Honda bug has gripped you well, I'm bloody jealous really, mind you just sold the micra, sold the ducati, might sell me Triumph daytona cosworth super 3, but bit unsure about that yet...They are getting well rare..


P.s was you jokin about those itb's
