RACING ENGINES, A TECHNICAL EXAMINATION.

Disclaimer: This is MY opinion, based on my 40+ years of experience professionally machining, assembling, engineering and dyno testing racing engines of various types & families. There is some “disagreement” among professionals, about what is, or what is not important, with respect to engine performance.

MY RULES:
1 Feel free to post up and comment, but understand from the start, that I have no intention of addressing every response.
2 Rants or other less than civil posts, will NOT be addressed. And will probably be deleted.
3 I MAY take the time to divert from my plan/outline, if I feel responding to a comment can add some value.
4 Science and logic are going to be the basis of this examination. There is no place for passion here.
5 Without hard “data”, (ie: dyno sheets, flowbench sheets, etc), you are just another guy with an “opinion”. Also, comments like: “I heard this about so-in-so’s engine.” Is just that...

Accumoto A New Level of Perfection

So, you want to race a Mini, because they look cute? ? ?

Ah yes, the venerable Mini and it's cousins . . . . . Cute and "compact", sort of like a Tribble or perhaps an Ewok. And just as much trouble . . . . .

Powered by the BMC 'A' series engine, but in it's "transverse" format. Some photos of what it takes to dyno test a Mini, requiring quite a bit in the way of adaption just to get them "hooked up".
