How are you iats with the jetta cooler and location without airflow?

I try to look on honda sites but honda people are complete idiots and clueless to everything.I had one of those to run and cant seem to find it.I will be doing an a2w probably but i want to take baby steps and try it all out.How many psi are you running? Looks like a greddy Tdo4h setup? Theyre nice and compact but still dont clear a standard round nose.I swapped to an external housing ,td04HL 15g,and made the manifold myself and had my buddy weld it up.Wastegate positioning is weird but is done like that for a reason due to space and clearance.

I downloaded the hondata smanager lastnight and was taking a look around,its awesome that there are soo many safety features to help keep it alive

Who did the basemap for it? Is it close?

Your car has been a inspiration for me. Just wish I didn't work on everyone else's mini's and just got mine done. Hopefully soon, it's def a tight fit with the turbo! I'm using a jetta intercooler. I vaguely remember you running something similar. I'm just using a chipped p28 on mine with a good base map. The other D with ITB's will be running Hondata however. Keep plugging away. Hope I can take mine on Mini takes the states!

4psi No intercooler for now.Waiting for my hondata set up to come so i can work on a tune for it.I know its not right but i had an FMU on it from a mustang supercharger kit i had but it loads up and runs funky so i took it off and keep out of boost.

Doing a small a2w intercooler soon after i get the hondata set up,should be here by the end of the week.Going to try to get it safe at 4psi then add the intercooler and go up in boost to 10-12psi.I did a fresh head gasket and ARP head studs.Hope it has traction,i have a piston and rod set up for the motor then i can run all kinds of boost but the car might not even like 10psi who knows lol were restricted with these tire sizes and weight/traction.

A local tuner told me the manifold will not work due to the way i ran the wastegate further from the manifold due to space clearances and i layed into it and it held wastegate pressure fine so im going to keep an eye on it and hope it doesnt creep.I dont think it will but well see.

You really should go on superfastminis and look around.They answer all the questions.

MTB2 kit does NOT require extention,nor MTD.They state this in their add.

Also go on 16vminiclub.com and look at builds.

Its a simple swap honestly,few little issues but spend some time reading up and watching builds and youll fly right through it.

Hey guys, I have 2 questions here. I can't seem to find the answer to. I found the install manual for the D series motor and the k20 motor. But can't seem to find one for the B18. Maybe I'm blind but honestly can't find it. Anyone know where I can find it?

 

Second, installing the b18. Do I have to lengthen the front end for it? I found the D motor you don't need to but need to for the k20. I'm planning to do a flip front, but don't want to extend if I don't have to. The B series is pretty much the same as the D but a bit taller. Just want to make sure.

Thank you for all the info. What I will probably do is enjoy it the way it is this summer. But gather all the information and tackle this next winter as it will just sit there anyways. And this way any cutting I do, I can get repainted to make it look nice and clean.

I did tons of research before i pulled the trigger.I knew i wasnt going to do anything else but i wanted to know exactly what i wanted and what would work best for me.Minitec is 2 shipping days away so if i have any issues a phone call and two days and they make good of it.They are very helpful,stand behind what they sell.They have a reputation for being slow with emails...but think about how much junk mail they get,i run a business and i know how much nonsense you get.Everytime i called they helped me through what i needed.Ive recently had an axle clip issue where the outter CV popped out.Clip was not on the axle end anymore...I INSTALLED IT..not them,maybe it broke putting it on? Who knows...but they shipped me out new ones the same day..also i realized my tie rod ends were short for the alignment and they have extentions.Same day out..2 days later they were here.

I eventually will be installing a rear frame and coilovers,considering the price i was trying to be cheap and look around and find a frame or make something...but if theres an issue who do you ask for help.For that reason,and out of respect for them and their help i will be ordering their rear coilover frame in the future.

Honestly i havent even worked the car out much at all aside from suspension adjusting.Im really happy i didnt listen to a lot of people.There are a lot of things to do which people get over whelmed with and give up...

But in all reality,its very simple getting the motor in and driveable.I have had more trouble fitting the front end then i did on the whole build.And the radiator is a tight squeeze as well as exhaust.I run a 7 or 8inch fan i forget..it looks pathetic...but when it turns on it goes from 185 to 170 really fast.Its a small fan but flows a ton of CFM i love it.I drove for miles beating the car to death on the highway downshifting into 3rd and hitting 5th flying for miles then got off and sat at a light and it hit 190 at the highest and started creeping right down to 170 again.

Idk what people were talking about honestly with the car being a headache..nothing but improvements.

Its amazing how much caster helps isnt it? Be careful,ive heard too much is bad as well and wears parts out but honestly im about to weight those consenquences and add more...i dont mind the firm wheel..id rather it track straight.

And yes,im 150% happy with my car and its a hoopty..cant wait for it to be a decent car..one day..

Engine + tranny + sbframe are a start but making it work is where MANY people get discouraged and loose interest.  

HOnda's in mini's have been done over and over= so many of the "kinks" have been smoothed out.

Other things to consider . 

 Manifold mods, Intake  + exhaust ./ Wiring needs - re wire or hack oem wires / need all plugs to work too.

Clutch + brakes  operable and simple!

Cooling- Fitting small radiator Piping + clamps etc.

Dont forget the tools required for seperate jobs=== Brakes= welding cutting mini bodies  etc and more! 

  In the end it all adds up - and if you stick with it - to complete the build as this post shows.. owner is happy. Car im working with - added more caster in manually = Oh man = it  got much better!!!
