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!!!
