    Can't help as all of my Mini's have been good old fashioned carbs! Personally if keeping the A-series I would stick with tuning that in carb form as to me nothing compares with the sound of a 48 Weber sucking in air! Hopefully someone will pitch in with some injection ideas.

    the 1.6 vtec is a great engine for a mini and can be sourced in SA from the 1996-2000 civics;)

    go on youtube and type in vtec mini and you will see what i mean[​IMG]
