    Basically tuned to the point the injectors are now stuffed, and anything above 5000 rpm is like a dead dog with no legs. Been to BMW who reckon a couple of grand, at their rates ! The chief techs advice was to Px it and let the other garage pick up the cost !!!! I'll take his advice

    2k for a set of injectors that's a lot.
    Sad news about the little mini though.

    They want to replace the injectors, entire fuel system, take the head off and check that. The list goes on mate .....

    Shoot mate, not good. Guess the "new" Mini cannot take harsh tuning then

    You have spent all that money on tuning it and did not get your moneys worth and you find it funny

    The engine is pretty reliable usually. I think i got one that was not very well run in, then tuned it too far. 260bhp from a 1.6 is pretty good going, even for afew weeks

    I will be stripping it down, selling the parts on, so money wise its not a massive amount wasted. Only really the engine internals I'll leave in, put everything else back and e-bay the rest
