The weather was good. Mostly cloudy for the first half then partly cloudy the second half. A bit chilly but that's all good cuz it makes the cars faster.

Are you going to bring the Mini or the Jeep back to the States if you get transfered back here?

You should bring both! Do you think it would pass the safety specs?

I am going to try and sell the Jeep here. I'm keeping the Mini regardless of where I go from here. If I half to it will go into storage till I do make it back to the states.

As for making it legal in the states...vehicles over 25yrs old don't have to be modified as they are considered classics. I will have to replace all the glass and probably the seat belts but I think that is about it.

It's not a gotta. It's sort of a wanna. I've got about 15K into it and if I sell it over here I stand a chance of actually making money on it. So I'm going to give it a try. I won't be jeepless forever. Then next one will be better.

Heck Ya!! I'm getting excited. I'm still waiting for the ignition box to show up though, and I haven't made it out to the junkyard to get the Ford bits yet either.

Behind my computer chair there is a substantial pile of Mini parts that need to go on. If I had to make an estimate it is about 15-20hrs worth of labor sitting in this pile. I wanted to start on it today but I got side tracked and then passed out on the couch.

It's ALIVE!!! I don't know exactly what it was because I did so much but it runs halfway decent at the moment.

I reset the timing at the dizzy, cleaned the plugs, installed a electric fuel pump, cleaned all the electrical connections at the starter, starter relay, battery and I stole the yellow top out of the jeep for the time being. I adjusted the fuel mixture a bit at the carb too.

So tomorrow I'm installing the complete camber kit and hopefully get it aligned early next week. If I have time tomorrow I'll install the new water pump, belt, and hoses. The trigger wheel and sensor will go on at that time too.

Tonight I'm ordering 100 sq/ft of Dynamat so I can get the carpet kit in.

The ones in post 45 are the most recent. Nothing's really changed... that is until tomorrow. I'll be taking pics tomorrow when I upgrade the suspension. I'm not going to touch the interior till the Dynamat comes.

Check this kit out. This came in the mail today.




This and a few other bits and I can pull out the distributor for good.
I can plug this into my laptop and set the timing curve.

Looks nice, to high tech for me. I would grenade the motor for sure.

Other than being able to program your timing curve, what are the other benefits, hotter spark?

No, it doesn't enhance the spark it just allows for greater accuracy, reliability, flexibility, and smoother operation. If I add a stage 3 head all I need to do is plug the laptop in, remap it and drive. Same goes for if I swap in a 1275cc block or make any other performance improvements. I could add a MSD box inline if I wanted to get better spark and the thought has already crossed my mind.

The Megajolt does away with the distributor and instead uses standard Ford coil packs and the Ford EDIS module that controls the coils as well as a crank position sensor and a map sensor that is built into the Megajolt unit. It also has a built in rev limiter.

I got it now, you just brought the Mini ingnition into the 21'st century. Great that it allows for future mods, Mini's are as owner modded as Jeeps are.

You have no idea how far people go to get their mini faster.

Hayabusa powered Mini at the track.


Twin Yamaha R1 powered Mini.

I was very surprised none of the bikes could hang with him. Probably did not know the track as well as he did. I think he had been there a few times.
