No mate hes down here in kent.Nothing as big as a Cosworth engine but just as fast I reckon.He said hes had it up to 140 with loads more to go but it started to lift.Ill let a few more people guess before I say.He reckons the old blue motor is even quicker.

The Cosworth Mini was fast as f**k if once you'd managed to stop the wheels from spinning 🙄....silly little gimmick of a car.

My mate built one same as that... And also got a mk 1 golf with VW engine in the front and hayabusa in the boot running rear wheels🙈

 

Lad by us has a civic type r engine mounted sideways in a 1275 gt...the metro mg turbo was a popular lump to use in the mini's back in the 90's👍
