JDM Sleeper Mini [Season Premiere]

  • Published: 03 February 2017
  • We originally found this Mini Cooper in Tokyo - one of the J-Spec models made specifically for the Japanese Domestic Market. After upgrading it with a supercharger and an E85 conversion, we decided it was time to take it to the next level and transform it into the ultimate Mini sleeper...

                        In 50 years when you work on this car again, you can put on the flight conversion package that will allow vertical take-off. Like the DeLorean in Back to the Future 2.

                                I lucked out and the JDM engine they sent me was brand new, as well. The green oil filter was dry, and brand new oil, no miles on it.

                                    Truth be told, this mini in its latest form, (see continualities) will beat anything around a "tight" track. Welcome, all, to the ingenious invention called the "mini".

                                            fact Rover used Honda engines So in theory that mini is still all british using an engine similar to the one in the Rover 400 hh-r spec coupled to the fact both cars were made in Longbridge in the west midlands of england!

                                                      In my mad Mini days I had a 997 Cooper, which I fitted with a 970 S engine with a Piper cam, straight cut close ratio gearbox, 45DSOE Webber carb, and limited slip diff, which would be enough for anyone as a road car. There was the awesome Buick Mini with a V8 engine, if you gave it too much welly the torque would flip you off the road.

                                                          Years and years ago my Dad and Grandfather owned a British Leland Import/Export in the states. Had Minis, MGB, Spitfires from the early to late 60's . At one time he had 4 minis in the small space in a one bay garage doing swaps from a standard Mini to the S (slightly higher output and stiffer suspension and different trim. The S back then didnt have forced induction until about 1995 ish. I love the old stories like that. I told my Dad he should find an old Mini and drop a B16 in it.... years later he is still thinking about it.

                                                                              If you want a honda engine, then get a bloody honda to put it in. They probably fit quite well.
                                                                              I will stick with an A series, though electronic engine management and fuel injection would be nice. And I don't like wheels which protrude outside the body, and I also think the very early bodyshells are the best looking.
