Mini Cooper S + 400hp

Hi there guys
Decided to share my project over here .
This is a 1.6 psa engine with forged internals and big turbo kit fitted, reworked engine head, cams, etc .
A lot of work as been put into this car ( 1.5 years ) specially in making sure the mechanical part was solid and the proof is that at only 1.2 bars of pressure the car went over 400hp... Summer in Portugal is hot and we are going to run it as it is to get more engine data and temps but the final tune will go to 2 bars , we are considering water/meth to reach it and maintain a healthy engine.
All work was done by Amiauto Pro , please dont forget to check their facebook page and keep track of the next few Mini's that are being done over there.
I have some cool videos we made on the Dyno ( and yes the dyno is certified and maintained ol ) but i cant post them here due to not having 15 post's or more...

please look on youtube for Mini Cooper S R56 + 400

Edited : Films Added now finally

very nice for sure! now you will need $$$$ to upgrade the drivetrain, don't see the necessary LSD to put the power to the road, prolly need better axles as well, depending on how you drive. its neat to have a "wolf in sheeps clothing" but far more costly than buying a factory hot rod, which mini does not have compared to your setup. good luck + enjoy your "Wolf"!!!!

Tran x lsd with 90% lock , dog box and reinforced axles/transmissions... otherwise you would struggle to get the number's on the dyno ... not even mentioning that I wouldn t be able to drive it on the road.
