picked up my honda today the engine code on the vin plate is F182b by eny chance do you now what that is it looks massive fills the honda bay will upload a pik later asso it looks like it got a realy big bell housing onit
I've never come across the F series, popular ones tend to be B or D series, however all is not lost
Usually the 1.8 lot would be a B series (b18c) so you might have a first F series mini? It might be a derivative of the B18 family but still F is not D
The size of the lump your saying is a worry though, in a honda they look small with loadsa space, in a mini they look bigger with no space!
