    I've been following Ivan's Shed YouTube, where he bought the block and head for a 2 cylinder prototype factory engine off of Ebay.... He goes through earlier videos where he builds the crank and other missing parts with a plan to get it running...

    That is great I've been watching that too, very interesting. Do you figure the Mini would have taken off & been so popular if it had been released with a 2 cylinder lump?
