    79 Classic Mini Honda D Series Swap

    I post here a lot so thought I would share this as well.....finished one project. Time to start a few more.

    This project will span over a little bit of time as I will be doing some other projects while this one is going as well. This will be for my wife...79 LHD Mini 1000 with a 97 Honda D series and automatic. It will get AC and a bunch of other modern bits.

    The mini....





    When we picked it up...


    looks even smaller behind a ranger


    The donor... parting it out tomorrow




    Hit pretty hard in the rear...

      About how much was that mini if you don't mind me asking?

        The mini is FWD so an m42 would be a bit of work......more so than the honda engine will be. The honda engine requires making a new front subframe.

        I paid just under $4k for the mini.

            It's for my wife. Auto is a requirement for her. She has tried to learn a manual and it just isn't happening. So auto it is.

                          Honda is parted out and the shell is going to scrap tomorrow.

                            if your doing the honda swap for the vtec.... this is not the engine! the d series is really weak... 127 hp for a y8 i think yours is a y7 if i remember right.. also right around the same power. but i guess for a mini it might do... maybe look into b20b? from a honda crv... that might be something looking into.. unless your set on this. Either way... props for doing honda swap into a mini! wanna see how it will turn out!
