Just written a bit below to go with the pictures that I've attached:
for big power in a mini is hard unless you go down the engine
transplant route. I started off with a 1600 vtec engine and soon
was on the hunt for more torque! And have been driving C20XE minis
since. When it came to rebuilding her and putting a new, less
abused engine in I wanted to make this one special. I found SBD
first of all from word of mouth, and realised they had exactly
what I was after, the Taper Throttle kit. The kit was very easy
to install and only needed a brief time with Dick Hulbert on a
Saturday and was balanced perfectly. I will use the car for pleasure,
shows and track days.
can't rate SBD enough, from the moment of contact I knew I was
dealing with the right company, and their aftersales service is
second to none, thank you for all your help for me to create my
dream mini, and thanks for the constant supply of tea!
