Hello guys around a month ago i bought a 1991 rover mini city and i have decided to do a full restoration and a vtec conversion.

This is my first mini i have always wanted one.

I am currently collecting all the parts i need to get started.

Thanks for looking.

Well mine is insured as a 1.6 honda mini with vtec engine code all changed on the book!!! Nct if it's 1980+ obviously but it shud pass nct if it in a steel front mini and done correctly! Only ting is emissions! But if it's pre 92 emissions don't count!!!!

The FG front will pose problems in both cases so.

Are u mounting your altenator at the front???? If so you'll need to modify the manifold ! Pipe 4 to the right catches the green plug and melts it even with heat wrap! You'll need to cut it and re weld it!!! Or cut a notch out of it! Up to yourself! Hope this helps mate
