I would be wanting to get those oil lines up much higher

me too. unfortunately it just isn't possible with the current setup as the oil filter leg cannot be turned more than it is as otherwise hoses will hit the exhaust. Depending on how I manage the make the downpipe, there might be more space. Anyhow, oil lines are few cm higher than the sump so at least they aren't the lowest point...

Exhaust manifold is now finished. Not the most beautiful but as a first try I just hope it works somehow! :D

Downpipe is tacked together. It'll need some major hacking but that will need to wait till I have time to lift the car up and see how it all fits. I think that I'll go with 2.5" pipe all the way to the mufflers.

Sorry, haven't remembered to update this thread for while, but current situation is that only exhaust is still under work. Otherwise everything else is bolted in.

I've modified the ve and ignition maps in tunerstudio and used standard maps as base and retarded the ignition after 100kpa. Hopefully I get it started later this week or next and get it idling.

Exhaust is finally in. It's 2.5" all the way. Hopefully I get it started tomorrow.

And no, the battery cable isn't touching the exhaust even it looks like it in the picture :)

Got it idling! No boost what so ever at the moment though as the wastegate is open.

I believe that the clickety-clackety sound is from hydraulic lifters that haven't seen oil for six months. Sounds a bit familiar and should stop after a while me thinks...

Next on my to-do list is to seal turbo-downpipe connection as it leaks a bit and then drop the Mini back on all fours.

Thought my project would be light weight and exciting to drive, yours will be mind blowing and wild especially front FWD. Hope you have a bus steering wheel or big arms to keep it pointed in the right direction. Well done great job =D>

Yeah, it'll be quite a handful when done :) You got one cool project under work too 8)

Today I ran into a new problem and a one that I really didn't want to have.. oil leak between the oil pump and engine block :-( Can I just wedge the oil pump a bit after taking the bolts off and push new sealant in between or do I really need to take everything apart to remove the oil pump?

I removed the oil pump and put new gasket sealant in. I had time to run the engine to normal temperature and so far I haven't spot a new oil leak.

It's running quite rich atm so fuel map needs a lot of tweaking before I can hit the streets with it for further tuning. So far I've only driven 30m back and forth in the back yard.

It runs and drives now, not the smoothest, but runs. Rolling road is scheduled in two weeks.
