1320 MINI "Old Red" goes turbo

Suddenly this project has become urgent as there is only 107 days to the first round of the UK FWD Series at Santpod on March 17th :thumbup1:

To start the day Scott started placeing some pipes



Smiler was laughing at Scott swearing for most of the day



and eventually Scott got to this stage in between jobs



then the night shift came in Santa Pod tech crew Mark Norton re-certified the chassis for another 3 years



So we can't go any faster than 8.50 sec for another 3 years ::



The all important sticker

Not much of an update apart from Thomas decided to cut the plenum in half and order some billet trumpets......to say they look like they were made for it is an understatement.
