Talking A mini one giving a 2.0 16v trouble....surely not!

Hi guys! Merry Christmas! Thought i'd share my delight with you ! I installed the bluefin superchip and a pipercross cai to my r50 one and wrote what i thought of it before and after installation. I was going to work at the weekend and came off a roundabout which leads to a constant uphill climb on a carrigeway. A boy in a 2.0 16v Hyundai Coupe (I checked and they seem to be around 138bhp) tried his luck. I sat on his bumper through 2nd, 3rd and 4th and he couldnt shake me. I will hopefully meet him again when I have the Janspeed 4-1 manifold, cat back and big throttle body! Angry little Mini!! :-)

Well there really is something wrong if you cant go quickly in a straight line ! Well I was redlined in each gear and his was screaming. I couldnt pass but he couldnt pull away. I had a mk3 2.0 8v, supersprint backbox and a viper cai. Off the line up to around 80 my gti would have struggled with the mini. The mini dies out when you hit 90. I am surprised at how rapid the car is for all that's in it!

tbh I don't think there's much would touch a well driven JCW.

( only thing you would need to look out for would be your licence !! )

Beg to differ there Iain, my R53 is running 228bhp, I like to think I'm a fairly good driver , but get into my Mrs E92 M3 & it's absolutely night & day different, performance from the beemer is frightening , don't think I'll ever get anywhere near it's limits...

If only I could afford to run one full time instead of borrowing it every now & again (usually when I wash it)
