Classic Mini Rolling Road Set Up

On the rolling road this week for a tune up, a classic Mini.

This recently magazine featured Mini came for a health check / tune up on the rolling road. Running with the 1380 engine set up along with Webber 45’s, SW cams, Maniflow stage 3 manifold with a straight cut gearbox and Megajolt ignition. This Classic Mini is no stranger to Hillclimb events and the odd track days.

Unlike most modern day cars the Mini doesn’t have an OBD port and can not just be simply plugged into a computer. The car is run on the rolling road and we use headphones to listen to the engine whilst monitoring the fuelling etc. on the rolling road.

When we ran the car before starting to tune the engine it was making 99bhp, after a couple of hours spent under the bonnet we made that power up to 111bhp 🙂

The Mark I Mini was the first design of British Motor Corporation’s Mini. It is characterised by its sliding windows, external door hinges and “moustache” grille and was produced between 1959 and 1967. The Mini was considered a British icon of the 1960s. The performance versions of the Classic Mini, the Mini Cooper and Cooper “S,” were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967. In 1966, the first-placed Mini was disqualified after the finish, under a controversial decision that the car’s headlights were against the rules 🙁

Focus ST Decat Custom Remap


Focus ST Custom Remap

On the rolling road this week we had a Ford Focus ST in for a custom remap after having a decat and exhaust system fitted.

When the customer first bought the Focus ST he booked in for a rolling road session to see what power the car was making. He was told by the seller that the car had been remapped and although the car felt quick he wanted to see the proof. When we ran it on the rolling road it made 306bhp with 336ft/lb.

With the decat and exhaust system fitted the car was booked in for a custom remap to suit. With the car safely strapped onto the rolling road the writing of the custom remap began. The custom also requested a few pops and bangs, we obliged of course 😉

Once we where happy with the fuelling, power and torque we let the customer take the car out for a road test.
