Dear A-series enthusiasts:

We are happy to announce a new project and related product that, so far as we know, is currently the only one of its kind in the world: a combination ram pipe and 3" snorkel or performance air cleaner adapter for the SU HIF44 carburetor. The adapter is CNC-machined from a single billet of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and comes with stainless steel hardware.

You may purchase the new adapter here: https://www.creativespridgets.com/ordering/

Anyone using the SU HIF44 carburetor may use this new adapter in one of three ways:

1) increase air flow and direct-mount a high-performance K&N-style air filter with a 3" inlet flange to the SU HIF44 carburetor for naturally aspirated engines. Here is a link to K&N’s universal filter selection on-line tool: https://www.knfilters.com/universal/universal.htm

2) increase air flow and attach a 3” silicone snorkel to the SU HIF44 carburetor to draw cool air from a remote-mounted air filter behind the grill or any location of your choosing for naturally aspirated engines. Doing so not only improves performance by avoiding heat rising from the exhaust manifold; it also reduces intake noise.

3) attach a 3” snorkel to the SU HIF44 carburetor to enable a forced-induction setup, whether by 'blow-through’ supercharger or turbocharger.

*Note: for those running a turbocharger, this is the only alternative we are aware of to finding an MG Metro cast housing. Now, you have a less cluttered and better-performing alternative!

Finally, please note that this adapter will be one of the components required for our forthcoming DIY ‘blow-through’ supercharger project, which uses the bespoke Creative Spridgets adapter shown in the last photo.

However, in the event that this component’s price is reduced due to being combined in a kit, those who elect to purchase this adapter in advance to improve the performance of their naturally aspirated A-series engine will receive the same discount as kit purchasers (deducted from the price of the remaining components).

Thanks for listening, and Safety Fast!

*Update: the machine shop called today to tell me they had made a significant error when bidding this job, and are sending me a check for the difference.

So, I have passed the savings onto Mini drivers.

Happy Tuesday!
