Hi guys.

 

My friend has an early ecu type, 1.3L K11 micra which he wants £50 plus the wheels that are no longer on my mini for.

 

This has set the wheels in motion for a conversion. So I was just wondering about all the dynamics of it.

 

I ideally don’t want to lose the centre smiths speedo of the city, so is there a way of splicing the micra and mini loom together and keeping it?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Sam

The Buckle Monaco! or maybe a descendant of them.

 

One of my lottery win cars. Are the conversion parts still available over there?

Wonder if my Aunt and uncle could fit one in their suitcase when they come home - they've just had to have their visas extended because my uncle broke his leg in the last few weeks of their holiday.

I'm thinking of breaking my 1.3 micra would anyone be interested in everything needed for a transplant?

This thread has caught my interest on the subject of small Nissan engine swaps, especially since historically there is some distant Austin connection with the CG having the same capacities as the A-Series at 998cc and 1275cc. 

 

A bit confused however as to whether there is any carryover or evolutionary continuity between the MA, CG and CR engines, apart from all powering 3 generations of Micra and seemingly being fairly straightforward conversions into Minis or were they each all new designs with little commonality between them?

 

Has anyone done a CR swap into a roundnose Mini or can it only be accommodated on Clubman-nosed Minis? 

 

Also curious to know whether anyone has successfully installed a Nissan A or Nissan E engine into a Mini's engine bay despite their larger size compared to the smaller MA, CG and CR engines. Especially considering the Nissan A engine was at one point mounted in a similar manner as the Mini in the Datsun 100A/120A? Or would the end result have been little different to an Andy Saunder's E-Series 1750cc Mini one-off?
