WHERE IT BEGAN

This wasn't Justin's first R53 rodeo. In fact, this would make it his third. What started as an idea soon lead to reality; a fully built 1.8L stroker MINI R53 turbo. Finished in Black Eyed Purple, this R50 was a great starting point to shift over some of the goodies from the last build and also a whole host of new parts.

CURRENT SPEC

Justin's MINI isn't housing the standard 1.6 Tritec engine but a 1.8L stroker instead. Partner this with a spec list longer than your arm and a little ethanol for good luck and the end result is 483WHP & 355WTQ.
