VTEC Mini Build

Welcome to my first blog! I'm building a "Monster Mini".
I am starting with a 1967 Mini with a worn out little 850cc, 31 hp engine and converting over to a Honda B16 170hp engine with a LSD 5 speed. This is an engine swap I have always wanted to do but didn't have the means until this year. So now that the rainy season has hit the Seattle area, I parked the car and started wrenching!


  1. are you still working on this? or is it complete? did you do the work yourself or is there a shop in you used?

    1. I pulled this off in my garage with a little help from friends now and again.

  2. What kit did you buy and what type of header is it?

  3. You can read an in depth answer on the post from 11/14/2011 titled "The Kit". Short version is I bought a custom sub-frame, header, and radiator from a guy who makes them in California.


Fell free to post any questions and I'll do my best to help you out with your project.
