I've seen something like that before,i think it's a BMW head.some head bolt holes need moving slightly but thats about it.

Practical Performance Car had info on a Mini engine fitted with a cut down Jag head iirc,similar to a Carlton 24v head cut and shut onto a Cih block

1275 bottom end bmw 8v or 16v head grafted on. Studs need repositioning, piston mods, pulley n crank mods. Not that straight forward but they have had 185 bhp from a 1380 with a 16v head. Not Bad!!!!

I am considering for the mog in the garage, guys at work have the drawings done to do the mod. If we got 160 bhp in a 830kg moggy shell that would be FUUUUUNNNN!!!!
