Hey all, my name is Ralf joining you from Germany.
My English is not the best, but hope you will understand me. *smiley*

About 2 years ago I bought my 1989 Mini 1000 as an restauration project. It was standing close before the scrap press. Now it is close before driving on the road again.
Then, last month I bought an 1100cc engine for rebuild and tuning as an upgrade into my 1000 Mini. At that point I was not thinking about adding a turbo kit.
This Idea growth very fast when I could get a nice complete Metro turbo kit. *happy*

Now it is how it is, I will try to marry the 1100cc engine with the Metro turbo kit. For sure this will be a challanging task, maybe it will work sometime.

gr Ralf

Welcome.

Do you have to use the Metro Turbo stuff to satisfy TUV?

The old T3 turbo is a big old lazy beast and not ideal on an 1100cc engine. Even on a 1275, they were pretty laggy. something smaller would be better. Lots of choice these days

hi wil, thanks.
No, this Metro kit came surprised to me as a nice complete kit for an atractive price.
I thought, I could fix it with no big risk as it is an original kit and as I don't have experience to try and maybe error alternatives from zero.

Welcome, the metro stuff is pretty redundant now with advances in turbo technology etc.

Most of the things you would steal from the metro turbo can be bought aftermarket now.

A more common turbo now for a small bore engine is the garrett GT1548 I think it is, the last two numbers might be wrong.

Well it will just work. And is a decent starting point. It's what I did on a 998 20 years ago (is it really that long ago!!), but it will be a bit laggy.
