Mini first is petrol only isn't it?

I doubt anyone would bother with a 75bhp NA engine. Perhaps if a diesel was available but even then the market would be very limited.

Its a bog standard mini. It is made to compete with a fiat UNO I think. Has steel
rims etc and only 65-70HP.

It's a de-tuned Mini One!

I doubt it mate also. Promised I'd look into it for someone!

Surely you can get mini one HP out of it?! Can only be a software change?!

Is it not the same engine?

No, it's more than software, the induction system is different.

Don't bother, the gains on a modern N/A are not worth it Carl.

I think he was asking if it could be made to a Mini One output but the changes are more than just software.

No worries. I'll let the dude know nothing can be done.

I agree it's a waste of money but if something can be done he would
deffo do it!!

Dame right there Ian, I'm still amazed how many Classic Mini cams we sell. In fact- across the whole range it's our biggest seller.

Picking up friday all being well. Just waiting on the auto electrician finishing the wiring to the electro shock bondage table. Hope it's ready for the weekend.
