A few pics from MINI meet.

Update by Per Schroeder to the Mini Cooper project car
Jan 25, 2006

The MINI people are quite friendly over at Sunshine MINIs and one member, Melissa McCornick, sent us some cool pictures of the GRM MINI in action. Thanks Melissa!

Meanwhile, we finished up our dyno testing today with our last system, the Milltek, which is available from Webb Motorsports. This system was the quietest of the systems, yet still posted similar gains as the rest of the systems. We’ve got this system on the car now and it’s honestly hard to tell it’s there, with very little drone at speeds. You do, however, notice the power improvement in the meat of the power band.

All of the systems post very similar numbers, with about 2.5 horsepower gain at peak and 5 horsepower in the midrange. The choice really winds up being what you like for sound and tip design.

After we were done dynoing, we redid our 0-60 test, posting 8.13, 8.02, 7.98, for an average of 8.04, for a .5 second improvement.
