Why Mini Mania's Classic Engine Shop?

From the earliest days of Mini Mania, we've offered an engine rebuilding service!  After all, we started out as racers so rebuilding engines and replacing engines is second nature to us! 

We couldn't have done this for 40+years unless we adapted to the times.  We know how hard and expensive it is to find good powerunits suitable for a rebuild, so we've taken it upon ourselves to explore and search for parts that will enable us to rebuild mini engines at substantial costs savings that we can pass on to you.

The same is true for many components that were routinely replaced in the past.
Mini Mania's Engine Shop is expanding to handle many of the tasks of reconditioning items in-house.  Some examples include:
  •  rebuilding spindles or 'uprights'.
  • reconditioning trailing arms with new bushings and bearings.
  • installing & reaming new bushings in Primary gears.
  • engines and transmissions.
  • and a variety of engine components machining services- such as magnafluxing, line-boring, balancing, valve jobs, and so on. 
Call us with your requirements!  Or if you'd like to have more fun dreaming up an engine, go to our BUILD YOUR DREAM ENGINE tool and see what you can dream up. Submit your dream engine to our team of experts and we'll do all we can to make your dream come true!

Take Advantage of our "We Ship It" Program

We recently announced our "We Ship It" service to make sending us your engine (or other large/heavy parts) easy and cost-effective.  You can have your own engine and gearbox refreshed by the same experts that have built our custom engines for years.  Avoid any "core charge" and potentially maintain the best value of your car by keeping it original.   Often you can add years of enjoyment with a "refreshed" engine - Possibly just new rings and bearings, a valve job, and a nice clean assembly with all new gaskets and seals.  You don't have to apologize for the mess of a dirty, leaky engine!

Rebuild Your Engine or Do A New Engine Swap - Your Choice

Keep in Mind you can still order a custom-built power-unit outright, or we can rebuild your engine to your specs. The rebuilding process includes a complete dismantling and inspection, cleaning and replacing of worn or damaged parts. We will also buy used 1275cc engines and gearboxes for cash anytime, please call us for details.

Call today and talk with one of our experts about your exact needs, and thanks for shopping with Mani Mania.  Or get a head start on it by going to our BUILD YOUR DREAM ENGINE TOOL.  Fill it all out and submit it to Mini Mania.  Our team of experts will then prepare an estimate (and maybe some suggestions) on your Dream Engine and get back to you.
