R53 Mini Steering pump conversion

So the steering lines of the Mini use the same bolts into the rack, so you could likely use those lines to plug into the pump. Mounting the pump will be the only challenge. Stock lines also used the same reservoir. It did have overheating issues so make sure it gets airflow, but also recognize on a MINI its between a heat shielded firewall and the exhaust manifold.

TLDR: F30 caliper, 345mm rotors, shaved pad slightly so it doesn't hit the hat, stainless steel brake lines, maybe a washer but unlikely. Can use stock 325mm rotors and then you have to shave the outside of the pad
