KMT Pulley & Superflex Wishbone package fitted £399- 02 December 2011

It’s always an argument here at 1320 which modification would you do to a virgin MINI first

.Thomas would always go for a pulley first,  whereas Scott would always go for replacing the OEM wishbone bushes with the uprated Superflex bushes.

So it seemed obvious to us why not combine the two as a package, so for £399 including vat you get the following supplied and fitted.

1 x pair of Superflex bushes of your choice SPF2548K or SPF2550K

1 x KMT pulley of your choice 11% 13.20% 15% 16%17 %19%

1 x Supercharger belt to suit your choice of KMT pulley

4 x NGK spark plugs


1320 Quietflow Cat Back- 02 December 2011
This has been on the to do list for a long time and as December is usually quiet for us and we're waiting on parts for some of our long term jobs it was an ideal opportunity to get Old Red in and get the experimental 1320 Quietflow Cat Back in and done.

It has actually met all expectations , its very quiet even with a de-cat so it should pass Bedford Autodrome noise drive by limits with ease, as an added bonus it also makes very good power.
Modern MINI R56 Cam Feature- 01 December 2011
