Hey guys,
I'm seriously considering a D16 VTEC conversion using a prefab chassis in my Mini K and was wondering if anyone knows of any workshops in Australia that would take it on?

Cheers
Simon

You might be able to twist the arm of a hot rod shop or mini specialist but that would cost just as much as the finished car would sell for - that's why pretty much every conversion car is built by the owners.

There are other alternatives to the honda engine - there's a guy up in QLD that used to do drive in / drive out swift GTI conversions - don't know if he still operates though.

What state are you in?

ACT but anywhere in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne would be okay.

For anyone who's interested, AM Auto in Noosa have done a few conversions but they are very busy so expect a wait if you want to get one done. They do sterling work though :)
