After years of toing and froing looking for the perfect solution which fitted my needs of more power, ease of conversion, fit within Swedish regulations and budget. 

 

As some of you may have noticed I have posed numerous questions regarding a 7 port head with rule injection, the more knowledgeable of you pointed out the issues I would have with emissions by using a cam which suited the engine. Therefore I would needed to have made a compromise with my choice of cam, 

 

I also looked at various engine swaps, Suzuki, Micra and Honda. These appear superb, but I felt a little beyond my mechanical competences. Also I wasn't prepared to have the car off the road for too long. 

 

Next up I considered the bike conversions, i almost bit the bullet and went for the AElynx kit. These conversions appeared a lithe too brutal for how I want the car to be. 

 

So…..finally today I bought the specialist components bundle kit. (taking advantage of the Kroner/Pound exchange rate today) 

 

  • SC ‘K’ Conversion Kit
  • SC Bespoke Bi-metallic Head Gasket
  • Refurbishing, Machining and Assembly of your ‘K’ Cylinder Head
  • SC Storm 2 Engine Management System pre-mapped for your engine
  • SC Bespoke ‘K’ Wiring Loom, Ignition Coil Pack, HT leads, Coil Bracket and sensors
  • SC Ancillaries Kit (including Throttle Cable and Dipstick)
  • SC Crank Trigger Kit with Crank Position Sensor
  • Preparation of your A-series block for the ‘K’ head
  • De-grease, surface, re-bore, hone and centre main strap machining of your block
  • Pocketing of your pistons for valve cut-outs
  • ‘K’ Exhaust Manifold
  • Billet Remote Thermostat
 

 

Even though I am now suffering from a sense of post purchase anxiety, I will try and outline the specs of the engine as best i can. All comments welcome. 

 

1380 block prepared by SC and built by Guessworks 

MED Verto Ultra-Light ST1 Clutch Kit with lightened flywheel

- Pistons TBD

- Crank - balanced  x-drilled

- Conrods - Standard balanced and lightened TBC

- Steel mainstrap

- I will use the SC ECU and maintain a narrow band Lambda (for emissions) 

 

Gearbox

- From Guessworks TBD. I think a SCCR box. 

- 3.4 Final Drive. 

 

Cylinder Head 

- Cam wise - I meant to ask SC which cams cam with the kit LT or RS. Depending on emissions I would like the RS cams. I need to confirm this

- I have asked SC to machine and add a standard mini oil cap into the head

 

Colour (the most important part) 

 - Block painted black and head painted dark grey. 

 

All comments welcome

oh yes it will be going into this - 

5D9BC14B-DDD0-4DFF-A524-FDEFE23083D3_zps

 

Intention is to keep the standard bonnet and pray that I only need to trim the cross member. If that fails, I think I might go for a nice retro rear bonnet lift. 

 

I am also thinking of trying to have some nice chrome K&N filters somehow visible at the front.

The piston choice has my head spinning a little. 

 

Options

 

- MED - Omega die cast 73.5mm with a 7cc dish (330 pounds) - those have an offset dish, I not sure is this works with the 16v head?`

- minispares 3.5mm POWERMAX PISTON 9cc dish (300 ish pounds)

- minisport Powermax Pistons - 73.5mm - 7cc dish (263 pounds)

- KalverST does a set of 73mm (1360) with a 10cc dish and and set of +60 with 6.5cc dish, I have enquired to see whether he can get the 73mm pistons with a 6.5cc dish. 

 

As always open to suggestions.

Hi! I wonder what the limitations are according to the swedish rules? I myself are looking in to getting a mini and want to do an engine swap. All that I know about is the 200hp/ 1000kg, but are there more?

Lots of things it seems. I really struggled with the rules etc. the age of car seems to dictate a lot of things, not least emissions and if you need to maintain a cat etc. You will need to upgrade brakes. lots of stuff on SFRO.se

 

I see you are not far from me in Eslöv

So I am trying to collect all the extra things I need. I am thinking about the fueling at the moment. 

 

I can't really make my mind up on what is the best option. I currently have an Spi tank and pump

 

1. Keep my Spi tank and upgrade to a mpi pump

2. Keep my Spi tank and upgrade to a walbro in tank pump

2. Upgrade to a mpi tank (due to its baffles or being foam filled, helping with fuel starvation) and an mpi pump

4. upgraded pump and then a swirl pot

 

Best option?
