im kinda sick and tired of the my 998 engine, today i almost got into a road rage, i was on a traffic light and the guy behind me is drving a truck, green light and i accelerated, not fast enough so he was tailgating me very close while honking at me, so my asian instinct kicks in ,and i slowed down and pull to the side, letting him pass, then i honked at him using my Bosch mercedez benz horn, he passed and he gave me a middle finga',,, i followed him as i raise my middle F too...i caught him in the corner and did a fast overtake while honking, again using my three hundred dollar Bosch mercedez benz horn, he did not react, he slowed down , he thought that i was going to pull something in my glove box, so he exit to the first street,(he didnt know that mini doesnt have glove box). i got his license plate #, so if i see him in the mall, i'll give him a little something.
Now after a long sacrifice with my underpowered 998 for almost two years, and after swallowing middle fingers morning ,noon and night from mustang,camaros,V8 drivers throughout the years because my mini is slow, i can say, i am now ready to do the Vtec conversion this 2017.
when i saw steve alexanders video about his vtec, it was really an eye opener for me, he said that he drove his mini to canada 3k miles one way, i was like, wow!!!! 3k miles, 20 hours driving the mini? i hope my arthritis wont get worse if i do that trip...
First, i need to find a good donor car. this is my first project come 2017
ps: i may also need to invest on a good set of high quality ear plugs.,, because All of the videos of vtec mini i watch in youtube are all LOUD.
