Owen / 1320 R56 Hybrid turbo has arrived- 24 June 2012
We are proud to announce that leading turbo specialist Owen Developments have teamed up with 1320MINI to produce turbos specifically built to find extra horsepower & torque for the 1st & 2nd generation BMW MINI  

We had the pleasure of going to Santa Pod today to collect from Al Cook driver of the Owen's Twin Turbo Mustang in Street Eliminator, a stock replacement R56 turbo and the Owens / 1320 Hybrid R56 Turbo for testing

We cant wait to get it on the dyno

Stock v Hybrid looks like it should flow a lot more air

Tristo sets new MINI record at Bedord How Fast / EVO magazine circuit- 10 June 2012
Tristo was the secound person to have his MINI on the dyno Friday night and made a stout 236 whp & 180wtrq............Sat morning and it was off to the Bedford Autodrome How Fast / Evo magazine circuit to see how he would fair.

Unfortunatley after 4 laps on the Toyo 888's netting a 1.25 the flexi joint on the Janspeed manifold split, wisely Tristo brought the car in so they could put the slicks on, with the plan off just going out and doing 4 warm up laps then 1 flying lap which would proberly result in a black flag for noise due to the split in the flexi.

The end result was a very pleasing new MINI record on this circuit of 1.21.491
