 I might have missed out stuff but mostly everything done has been documented under "Project Kermit".

The Mini is fun 24/7. It has performed every task asked of it with puppy dog eagerness, bringing a smile each time. Still amazes me at how large the cabin feels. No sense you're driving one of the smallest cars on the market. With the slight improvements made to the intake and exhaust, coupled with the supercharger pulleys, this is one nippy little machine.
