    Some spanners, ratchets and bag 'n' tag later.



    I'll get the gearbox away to get looked at later this week.

    Going to check the timing of this camshaft. If it's correct timing still it's coming out for the standard one.

    Been a little quiet in the mini scene in the last few months. But just before Christmas I treated myself to the Specialist Components throttle body and ecu set up for my mpi. Long story short I spent a bit on a new cam and high lift rockers to get no benefit at all. So Iíve went the route of mappable fuel and ignition.

    First off with the old stuff.

    On with the new. Iíll get photos later.

    Took the car to have it tuned in Falkirk at SOS motorsport. Decent results for the engine spec. Drove really well on the way home. Much much happier now.

    Now with a less standard looking engine bay Iím going to experiment with a different rocker cover also.

    Just need to get some longer rocker cover bolts to suit the MG metro style cover.
