This sleeper Mini with a Honda B16A2 VTEC motor and transmission conversion has been the Mini enthusiast owner's project for 15 years, culminating in 2018.
Started in 2003  with the purchase of the Brian Campbell-built subframe, the first one not requiring the lengthening of the front body fenders.  Owner knows of only two so equipped completed cars, one in America and the other in the United Kingdom.

 A Japanese-spec 170 hp B16A2 (OBD1) motor/transmission (hydraulically-actuated) with 75K kms was bought soon after from Evo Garage, a Japanese import tuner and importer. 

The build really came alive with the commissioning of Jackson Autosport (Winnipeg, Canada), a local long-time import tuner/builder, to transform the left hand drive 1987 Rover Mini imported from Japan with the following.

- modified Brian Campbell subframe and driveshafts
- JDM Honda B16A2 motor
- Y21 five-speed transmission with Steve Alexander group buy 3.6 final drive gears
- modified Honda gear selector
- modified Honda intake manifold to clear bulkhead
- Honda Civic radiator
- stock ECU
- custom engine management wiring harness by Marshall
- stock Honda exhaust manifold and custom 2" SS exhaust with Magnaflow muffler by John
- Bosch 044 universal inline fuel pump
- stock 7 gallon fuel tank
- 12" Ultralite rims with Yokohama 539 tires
- Mini Spares 4 pot calipers for 8.4 solid discs
- Mini Spares adjustable tie rods and lower arms
- Spax Krypton adjustable shocks, front and rear
- S Racer red coil springs, front and rear
- Hi Lo adjustable struts, front and rear
- Wilwood brake and clutch master/pedal assembly
- Mini Spares rear camber plates
- Speed Hut GPS speedometer

As you can imagine the drive is exhilarating and frenetic at the touch of the accelerator pedal.

A scant 1600 kilometers has been recorded since but a new project beckons and work space is required.
