    No but it looks cool! Reminds me of the webers on my old Alfa.

    I used to run twin 40 webers on my Ford Escort. I wonder how these hook into the Mini ECU/throttle pedal?

    Yeah I think I am going to pass on this one.
    Just the words OBX + eBay and $1,000 make me want to run away quickly. :rolleyes5:

    It has to be for a Justa because how would you connect that thing on an "S"?

    I am sure someone on LMX will buy one and say its the greatest thing since sliced bread. :lol:

    I prefer to slice my own bread & cut my own cheese.

    Buy those Chris they'll look good sitting on the shop shelf. IPH individual pencil holders. :D

    I see they say for R53 too, so like Dave says how do you hook them up? I'm not going buy them Chuck, I was just interested about the set up. $1000 is close to getting my gearbox fixed which is money well spent, ITB or straight cut gear whine!

    Might be fun on a r50, if you wanted to go crazy, and maybe run a standalone ecu...
    Not sure it could ever be made to work on an S....
    BUT I GUESS anything is possible in internet land....
