Hi guys/gals,

New on here, I'm actually building a 16v Mini with a G13B and am after help with parts and performance, will be looking at going turbo at a later date and no doubt will need some wisdom when I get to that too.

Thanks

Dan

Welcome to the site mate, post up some pics of your mini with the G13b conversion (would be good to see).

And if you have any questions just ask...

its at a very early stage right now, currently working on the shell, will keep you updated on progress at key stages, really looking forward to getting stuck into it, heard alot of good things about Swift GTi's and I'm looking forward to realising how good a little engine it really is for myself.
The basics are:
G13B
Vauxhall F17W355 Gearbox
Yamaha R1 Carbs
Piper Cams

Thought I'd share a few updates, mostly the Swift bits I've been playing with.
Here's my 60mm inlet manifold, bought from Jesse, reversed by Gary and finished by me.

I had a modelmaker knock it up for me.
He used my original as a mould and vacuformed this one out of 3mm polycarb.
I was hoping he was going to make a batch up, but he was making it behind his bosses back and his boss wouldn't let him make a batch when asked.

I got it from Bill Falconer. He had 4 left over from years ago, I bought them all and sold them on.
If you want one I think Atchi aka Miniswift has a drawing which I'm sure he doesnt mind sharing for a small fee, or when I do my rebuild my engine you can use my plate as a template.

I know Paul, he lives round the corner from Andrew, his garage is a treasure trove of mini bits!
We've only met a couple of times, he was kind enough to lend me a door so I could check my gaps when I replaced my sills and steps.
He was very good in his mini at the Solo event in Borden, he's very smooth through the corners.

That's why I have 2! Wink
One for everyday use, and if it does get dirty, which it shouldn't really, I've got the spare for show.
If you have a look behind your cam cover, odds are it's dirty, but not as bad as you think when you consider it's never been cleaned over how ever many miles you've covered.
I tested the prototype strapped under the bonnet of my van for a week to check for distortion from heat and after about 500 miles of driving it was fine and clean.

If you have these sexy clear covers does that mean that you have a spare standard one you could sell to me? Its just the lower section im after really but will take both if you have them.

If so, what do you want for it mate?

Thanks Very Happy

It's only the top I've had done in clear and my original top cover was drilled and modified to use as a mould, but, I'm pretty certain I have a spare lower cover, I'll pop down the garage after work and have a look.
