This week, I decided we should spend some time talking about the NFL engines that are in the current generation of MINIs; the B38 from the Cooper and the Chevy 350 of BMW engines, theb48 from just about everything. Luckily, we managed to get Gabe to join in the discussion. Hopefully you enjoy!

Are you a mechanic? Live in Detroit? Know a mechanic in Detroit? Want to work for one of the most prominent MINI Cooper shops on the planet? Send your CV over to Detroit Tuned (resume@). Chad would love to talk to you, 3,000%.

A HUGE thank you to everyone that has filled out the survey so far. We really appreciate you taking the time to provide us your amazing answers. We are still looking at you that haven’t filled it out yet. It is pretty short, anonymous and a bunch of the questions aren’t even required. If you could, we would appreciate it. Oh, and who is looking for the full version of our awesome theme music that Todd created for us? You can grab that from the server.

  1. Great show guys! You are correct, the cockpit smell of my MGB is a magnificent bouquet of hydrocarbons both combusted and un-combusted, leather both old and new, and the wonderful odor of steel and paint that’s been heat-cycled so many times it’s borderline radioactive. If I could bottle that scent I would wear it as a cologne.

    Ditto Gabe’s comments regarding the profound lack of sophistication in these old cars. As far as I’m concerned that’s a feature, not a bug. There’s not a single printed circuit board in my MGB, and certainly no computers, and that’s just the way I like it. There’s no power steering, no A/C, and no stereo either. Manual windows and locks plus and honest-to-dog manual pull choke on the dash round out the Premium Primitive package.
