With outstanding success on the circuits MRE have established and offer a range of conversions and products for the discerning driver who wishes to enhance the performance of their car.
Rover K series
MRE have been modifying the Rover K series engine for the last 4 years and have accrued a vast knowledge of this excellent engine, which has established itself as a reliable and highly adaptable unit. Whether it is in the 1.4, 1.6 or 1.8 version, all can be modified and built to give exciting performance throughout the R.P.M. range. MRE offer a number of conversions that can be tailored to the owners requirements. Success in sports car races, hill-climb and endurance races, are the back-ground to the various conversions we offer.
Conversions - some examples:
For Lotus Elise cars
For Caterham cars
These conversions are built in-house and can be fitted at our factory. Some conversions are available in kit form.
MRE also offer for the K series:
Gas Flowed Cylinder Heads
Full Management Systems
Dry Sump Systems
Performance Valve Springs
Lightened flywheel (Lotus Elise/MGF)
Gear Ratio Sets (Lotus Elise/MGF)
Automatic Torque Biasing Differential Units (Lotus Elise/MGF)
Final Drives (Lotus Elise/MGF)
Gas Flowing Cylinder Heads
Engine Management Mapping
Stupid german question :-/
What in heaven are 'Gas Flowing Cylinder Heads' and 'Dynamometer Facilities'
A Gas Flowed Cylinder head, is where the Inlet ports and outlet ports on the cylinder head have been modified to allow the gases ( Air and Petrol Mixture) to enter the cylinder bores of the engine, in larger volumes and more directly and to exhaust the burnt gases in larger volumes and quicker. The result is a free reving engine ( well better reving than before)
It is done by griding and polishing away at the inlet and oulet ports to make them smooth bigger and take out anything that obstructs the gas flow into the engine. This can be the end of the valve stems, a sharp turn in the inlet or oulet port. The process sounds quite simple but a lot of sicence can go into it to obtain the best flow.

So, nothing new and as pictured at the known Andrews modification site.
Learning never ends :)
I hope that Mr Alzheimer allows me to remember it the next time ;-)
