So Engine Out Today and was a 4.1 drive in it.. Was keen on a 3.21 for top speed but been Advised to go the 3.44 so I have Decided to compromise and go with the proven Drive used by fellow mini`s.. My thinking was that at 3.21 used in the metro turbos i had the same power anyway and would be a good ...

Anyone know of any mk1 Mini Metros for sale.. lots of them with Hearts extracted for Mini Projects.. I have a 998 engine and box from my mini so I would have interest in one without and engine.. but would prefer a running car.. Solid car preferred.. Paintwork not really important... any leads to a g...

http://www.guess-works.com/Tech/ratio.htm Try here. Yes did them alright good tools.. though if would suggest I'm at 5500 rpm at 82 mph.. i would have thought I'd easily do 6000 on this engine or a wee bit more.. but perhaps the box is just stopping me.. revving pretty high anyway... Think the mind...

Just as an aside to the whole gearing thing with minis, I have a straight cut 4 speed box on my own mini (1380 stage 5ish) which I changed the final drive to a 3.1, that coupled with the 1.1 straight cuts means I can move a lot faster than standard minis, but in doing so I have lost some of the low...

We need to know what revs the engine is doing at 75mph. No point speculating on diff ratios otherwise! Ya sorry no idea im afraid its an 81 mini with a single clock no rev counter im afraid.. ill just have to check fuel line and filter and failing that have look at dizzy set up and Needle choice.. ...

what RPM are you running at 75mph? is the cam timed correctly? also is the spring/needle correct? could be that the carb-piston is fully up (open) when you get to 75, so wont give more - in that case you might need a heavier spring. see this thread: http://www.theminiforum.co.uk/forums/topic/146506...

Allegro 1300 Super Final drive is 3.95 and top speed 82 mph. I ran a 3.66 before that top out at about 90mph. A restricted fuel flow won't stop the car from starting or running normal its only when you want more power and more petrol that it becomes a problem.Very important to have the right dizzy ...

You haven't mentioned what gearbox and final drive your using. I did a quick search on the allegro and found a final drive of 4.1 and max speed 80mph ( on larger wheels) so that is one possibility that would tie in with your description . Fuel starvation at the top end, have you fitted a high flow ...

Looking over your questions and having done a b16a conversion for my bro i kinda have an idea of what your looking for if your question is will you need to spend more than the price of the kit the answer is yes you will need a lot more We used the allspeed kit (from memory €2200) That covered subfr...

That part of the NCT would come under the visual inspection which is open to the opinion / interpretation of the inspector. If he has any doubt he will fail it, if you have an engineers report he will accept that someone else is taking the blame. As a matter of interest do any of the vtec sub frame...

I dont want to be the one to say it but i dont know how they would take the engine conversion for the NCT as there is a good bit of cutting of the inner wings required, I'm lucky i guess as mine is nct exempt. I'd consider the supercharger or bmw head conversion but the d15 is a fine engine. To hel...

Given all that's been said above and before you start down that road, consider a fully sorted supercharger install. Not the same power admittedly, but 90% of driving will never use the full power of a vtec. Disclaimer: I've never built a vtec, not even driven one. Supercharger on a 1275 engine is i...

You'll need some sort of eletric fuel pump the mpi mini one will do but if you using a clubby estate an external inline pump would be preferable, I assume you'll use the civic clocks if so you'll need a speed convertor like healtec to make it read right and something for the fuel sender. Wiring wis...

Niave? yes probably but i think if most of us who have done an engine conversion knew what we were getting into then i dont know how many would go through with it. In theory you dont need anything else apart from the bits you have but some things are more difficult than others, How complete is the ...

When your finished your build and you look back you'll probably realise that €1600 was the least of your worries, I know I'm not really the person to ask as I've spent enough to buy a very nice new car and its still not really finished. If i could give you some advise it would be to think about wha...

In fairness that dvd explains nothing. I bought it too. That's based on the watsons kit which needs an extended front a metro frame and increases your track width. Get yourself over to the 16v mini club website and start reading the Honda build section. When you work out your budget, double it and ...
