I know of at least one that passes without the cat.


If it's not mine, then there's at least 2! :D
1994 1275 Sprite with a stage 1 kit on a HIF38



That's exactly why I'm asking. Thinking of fitting the same to my car. Did the stage one kit make much of a difference?

So would that mean without the cat the car will likely fail?

Hi I have a set of these on my Mini, 5x12, no curbing but need a polish, with very good Falken Tyres. I'm looking to swap for a set of Minilite style in 4.5x12 as I want to keep the car as standard as possible and the revoultions stick out past the arches about 1/2 an inch. I'm in West Cork area.

Thank you for the reply. I with give that a go. I did pull a spark plug this morning and its white. That's a lean mixture right?

Hi I have just purchased a 1994 mini 35. It has two issues. A hunting idle and running on when ignition is switched off. Any ideas where I should start?

Went to view this car as I'm coming back to mini ownership at last! Is actually a 97 mpi interior and running gear in an earlier-ish shell.

Said I would renew the donedeal ad just to see if there is any interest. As I said hopefully e...

I always find quoting the cost of a new Golf/Panda/Fiesta, its servicing, depreciation and a few comparative parts over a similar period of ownership helps keep that conversation in perspective.



Good point :D Might just try that next time she is complaining!

Lots of food for thought there. Looks like I will have to take it slowly and get the bits one at a time. Mostly due to my long suffering girlfriend's constant dismay at the money I keep spending on the car :D

Some say it does, others say it doesn't. The 48mm plastic bodies are known to crack. Burlen supply both 48mm and 52mm metal bodies. The official Cooper Works kit used a 52mm body and a fuel pressure regulator. Apparently you can pick up the regulators cheaply off old Fords. There are plenty out the...

You should do a little more research and know what you want out of the tune before you make a final decsision. The mpi reacts very well to a stage 3 head and lcb/exhaust and it doesn't need to be set up on a rolling road either. I'll be at the track day if you want to see what an mpi can do. Your c...
