Quite correct.supercoopers said:Contact Jlm either on these forums or on the Noth American Motoring forums:
I believe that he has had a MCS engine on the bench and measured pretty much all everything there is to measure. Along with Edyn in the states, or was i the old one I can't remember, he concluded that there is no enough wall thickness to allow boring beyond 1600cc. I may be wrong on the detaisl though so please contact him directly.

You're usually right....not this timepocketrocketowner said:If you were to talk to a race engine builder...say VAC Motorsports in the Philadelphia area, they would tell you that the Cooper engine (short block) is exactly the same one that is fitted to the Neon. I know we all wish it wasn't so, but there you have it. It is made in Brazil by DaimlerChrysler.......
No, your implication in your prior post was that the Neon 2.0 short block and the MINI 1.6 short block are the same. They are not.pocketrocketowner said:You will find my statement coincides exactly with the contents of the press release you cite..... I'd hate to make my first ever mistake of my whole life.......might even have to sell ole PKT RKT for that......

I'll give you $500 for PKT RKT
And yes this is based on my interpretation of your prior post. This may differ from your intent.
