Hi guys, thought it was time to start a new project and a few things have fallen into place for me this week so i bit the bullet and have ago at another mini.

Firstly i wanted to do a k10a into a roundnose mini (suzuki 1L turbo) but these seem to be pretty rare and big $ to get over here. When i told a mate at work about my plans he said he had a charade sitting in his garage with defects and has ran out of rego.

He said it is a complete car with a daihatsu 1L cb70 twimcam, liberty gt turbo, microtech ecu, bigger injectors-pump, intercooler, and all rebuilt 5000kms ago. It also comes with a spare gearbox (like new), spare head and spare block. After i heard what he wanted for complete car i couldnt resist.

Anyway looks like i have found a good roundie shell (thanks simon), picking it up end of May, and this will be my 14secmini project.

Awesome, great little motor.

Ridiculous observation - is there no Blow off Valve on it?

Cool, that motor should give an impressive power per litre rating, being a 1litre, twin cam turbo!

Yeh there is, its hidden under the front bar, but its loody loud haha.

Similar motors i have read up on the net are getting around 160-180hp@wheels with similar mods, ill be happy with a reliable 150hp@wheels from it, around 180-190@flywheel.

great idea

may i say that the Daihatsu CB60/61 engine was fitted to the Innocenti DeTomaso Turbo (the Bertone designed one)? and some people even fitted the CB70 engine

looks good! that is one mother of a turbo hanging off the front of that little motor... :twisted:

I can see this being a cheap project - charade seats, dash, column, brakes....

nice choice, using a compact engine it should be a snack to fit

Welcome back to the fold Brother................ :lol:

As I've always said the CB70 is an awesome little engine, and will make a terrific conversion.

Once again, a good decision Brad.

Cheers,
Tricky
