In the near future I will be restoring a 1967 Morris Mini Panel Van which will be...unique!
I'm planning to replace the .85L Motor with a Honda 1.6L (B16A), which will hopefully bump the horsepower from about 80 to 160 (with ease)...and the van only weighs approx. 700kg!
This engine conversion has been done alot in the UK, and I've heard some people in Melbourne have also done it. A full conversion kit can be purchased from Watson's Rally in the UK for about 2000 pound...link to watsons: www.watsonsrally.co.uk
Has anyone seen or heard about these conversions been done in Aust?? If, so, has it been done through a conversion kit or DIY?
Also planning a stereo install...any info/advice/etc on any aspects of Mini's (getting parts, stereo installs, modifying, conversions, etc) would be very appreciated.
