I always wondered about putting a b16 motor in a mini. Got any pics of the swap?quote:
Well the one I had and drove was..well...you might call it a sleeper. I'd been interested in minis for oh about 8 years, and had these two for about 2 years. After much research on mods, I came across a popular mod that the britts were all over. Simply put, a honda b series motor, usually the jdm b16b, slides right in to the front of the mini with little to no body work, only a new custom subframe. So for about 5 grand, you now have a 185HP, 1400lb car, that handles like a go-cart.
Sigh good times. Alas, I had to sell them both to put me through college.
Oh yeah and Tex;
Pics of what I'm up to.
Basically just waiting on parts, and soon I'm going to attempt a glass seat.
I'll keep you updated with pics.
