3 Reasons To Install a VTEC engine Into Your Mini

This question always comes up, “Why would I want to install a Honda VTEC into my Mini?”

The Answers are easy:

1. It’s more powerful than the venerable A-series Classic Mini Engine.
2. It’s more reliable than a rebuilt Classic Mini Engine.
3. It’s more efficient than a Classic Engine.


So, What Exactly is a Honda VTEC Engine?

VTEC stands for (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control). What it is though, is a system developed by Honda Motors to improve the volumetric efficiency of a four-stroke internal combustion engine. In other words, improve the economy of the car’s engine.

However, there are other benefits to a VTEC that Austin Mini owners love even more than fuel efficiency and that’s POWER. Honda’s VTEC engines seem to be a match made in heaven for Classic Minis.
