4x4 Mini With VTEC Power
US conversion kit offers 400bhp and AWD for 'real' Mini fans
The work of Mini Tec in the US - which bills itself as ‘your source for super fast Honda VTEC powered Minis’ – the conversion is available as a kit costing $2695.
According to Mini Tec, the conversion allows you to pump up to 400bhp through your Mini’s four wheels, depending on the size and state of tune of your chosen B-series VTEC motor.
The video shows Mini Tec’s ‘in-house testing’, which seems to involve chaining the car to something heavy and spinning all the wheels in a puddle in the workshop. If anyone is tempted to have a go at building one here in the UK, do let us know!
Finally someone has released a kit for it to save all the messing about!
Mental with a K20! I'd like to know if and how well they still handle?
Quite cheap as well!
