Has anybody achieved 100bhp or more with a spi cooper, and how did you get it? I am approx 90/95 ish and wondering if the ECU can cope with nuch more.
Thanks

I'm very suprised if you have got a genuine 90-95bhp at the engine from your spi? They are more tunable than the Mpi version, but even so the single point injection system is unlikely to be able to fuel enough to get anywhere near 100bhp. I would say you need to go back to carbs, and on a 1275cc, you would need a decent fast road/rally spec cam to get 100bhp! The most rover got out of the 1275 was 72bhp, and with a few mods this goes up to 85bhp or so.
