MINI Tuners

I have been keeping a list of the sites that are offering (or will be offering) MINI tuning parts. This is what I have so far:

Are there others to add to this list?

The 250-275hp Stage II kit in the last link was mentioned in an earlier post and looks good for anyone who wants to completely abandon their warranty (and transmission and ...) :)

Handy list, I will add those to the links section as soon as I can find time!

Great stuff, thanks! I like the turbo kit however I highly doubt it can make 275hp with 10 psi of boost in a 1.6 motor. 8-10 psi on that motor with no internal mods and an intercooler should make a solid 200hp. That would be very nice in a 2350 lb. car!
Remember the 275bhp is the stage two kit which includes a fairly large sized intercooler for a 1600 engine. But 245bhp is probably still optimistic!
The general rule is that for every 1 psi of intercooled boost equals roughly 10bhp for small displacement motors. The Mitsu turbine they are using is efficient and with the right air/fuel mix and free flowing intake and exhaust I would say 12bhp per psi is realistic. That would yeild about 235bhp!

A Mini with that kind of power should be cabable of 0-60 times in the mid to high 5 second range. Sounds good to me!
Thats alot of power!

My friend has a pre 1995 Fiesta Turbo, with 9psi, and it wheel spins in 5th gear!

It does 0-162mph, in just under 5 seconds, mind u its been chipped and a whole loada stuff been dumped in there.

Its roughly around 180bhp

So maybe the MINI will do 0-62mph in les than 5secs? I'm only speculating
oops meant 0-62mph not 0-162mph (would be damn good if it could do it in that time hehehe)
