Nothing is easy when it comes to making modifications to or maintaining the Mini. Everything is tightly packaged. I thought installing a boost gauge and a oil pressure gauge would be a walk in the park.
I am still high from how well the entire (my stage I) modification project for the Mini turned out. As I set out to accomplish - invest a few thousand dollars to make the Mini more fun. That was my mission statement. At the time I have only a vague idea of what the project includes. My idea of a few thousands dollars was may be $6000 rough figure that I put into the back of the head.
