Mini – 2.0L XE

Email received from Joe, May 2007:
Hello! Just written a bit below to go with the pictures that I’ve attached:
Searching 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. 
I 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!
