    rwd turbocharged mini

    ok so decided to start a new build thread for the mini as plans have changed so much from the last thread. so now it is going to be rear wheel drive. rear diff is nissan s14 as it comes with an lsd fitted. this i am building my own subframe to mount it and custom wishbones which will have mini front hubs mounted with s14 rear calipers. engine is ca18det from a nissan s13. at the moment it has the t28 turbo from s14 which helped it produce 286bhp in the s13. i hope to up the power a fair bit and running a larger turbo. i will put up pictures from beginning till stage its at just now. hope you guys like it so far.

    Gordo, that's mental! Going to be a bit of a squeeze though! Have you thought about using a FWD set-up in the back? Something like a Civic Type R would be entertaining...

    Rear engine has been done in these quite a lot. What something different. And to still have rear seats.

    Rear end isn't like this now. In the middle of build a subframe and shafts Will be narrowed to keep the mini track. It Will have slightly wider than standard to house wider wheels tho.
