B18C Powered Mini

How about getting your hands on an aftermarket subframe conversion kit and slotting in a DOHC Honda B18C? Thanks to Michael from JDMST for submitting.

  1. Hi Jeff, my name is Michael. I live in Toronto,Ontario. It was great to see a coverstion in such classic car done in Canada. Because most I found was from England. By the way ur story on this mini is all over the web, and this what makes me want to ask a few question about this mini. Just like u, I m Asian who love car and epically MINI. I did all my research on how to converted on the engine side but never found any information on the wireing part.
    Just a few question if u can answer me that will be great!
