    The R50 is a nice car. the issue today is that a lot of R50 drivers want a bit more power, and dont want to spend $1000.00 - $1500.00 on a Head. That little 1.6 is what it is. Cute and good fun !

    We have over the years all focused on the M45 R52-R53 Minis. Usually customers that buy a supercharged engine are into performance anyways, yes ?

    Well Thumper Performance has two camshafts for the R50's. they bolt in, no tricks or bad idle. good street power and hard pull. Thumper Performance has the Adjusted Cam gear that we do for all the MINIs. This is great for the r50s by changing the OEM existing cam phase and pulling more power that way. That works great. And we can use that on almost all the camshafts out there. ( even the Schrick with its low end loss or that flat spot. )
    We decided to make cams for the R50s also. By upgrading the center lines, to keep torque low and still pull hard mid and top. Nope, you wont end up with a R53, but you WILL have one bad ass R50 !!
    Cams are $365.00 and free shipping to you here in the US.

    Seems like a sales ad SPAM and not discussion.

    Thanks Sully and Dave.0 ... Got me in the correct place. Let me know if I can help any more !! We have had the Schrick in the R50's and they were kinda dead in the low rpm range. Then after 3500 they would start to come alive. R50 racers used the Schrick as it is a good camshaft and it has been around for a while.
    Well there are now TWO for the R50's . New billets, smooth idle, and power to the 6500 rpm limits. Throw on a ported head ( TPR1 ) and the cam, and you will really open eyes ! Thanks
    Cost is $365.00 delivered to your door in the USA.

    Yea my experience with Schrick cams on other cars has been similar. Down low not great, but mid to upper pulls well.

    So... camshaft is a new billet camshaft, ground to our spec. Cut in the UK. .401" lift intake 114 Lobe separation. Intake center line Designed for early Torque and Power. Drops in and uses stock Valve train. Camshaft is $365.00 Shipped to your door in the USA.

    TPR1 Ported head will add to the flow of the camshaft. We use the stock size intake and exhaust ( header) Gasket so all the bits bolt up with no leaks. We also up-grade the valves to the stronger R53 pieces. Replace all the OEM cast guides with Bronze. Tuning for the Cam and Head are not needed. However a good tune would be suggested. The TPR1 Head Delivered to your door in the USA is FREE. Cost is $1295.00 . There are also core fees to be addressed .
