I don't have a clue to the price but Mini-Mania sells an 8-port head that
should work with the 'A' series engine. No clue to price... It sounds like
it could add up, you start with the head, new intake manifolds, couple of
webers, and a new exhaust header, I think you need a special cam also.
OUCH! But it could be fun!
Wouldn't it be fun to build up a sleeper 1100 and play with say an
unsuspecting Mini owner.
NOTE: Got a little burnt out on the attitude of a couple mini owners a few
years back. So this is just a wierd fantasy of mine. Sicker yet, I'm
trading some stuff for a mini project car.
