Smile 1.3 Micra Engined mini

1.3 Micra Engined mini.

Recently I've been looking at either a Suzuki or micra powered mini, I'll be coming from a tuned A series with around 100hp, so wanting to have somewhere within the reason of that figure with a Micra engine.

So, the question is, other than an All speed subframe, a donor car that i can grab what i need out​ of, a ECU like megajolt, or nodiz? What do i need? I want to minimise body cutting as much as possible, I've heard that the injection system will hit the bulk head so to not cut that out bike carbs is an option? Complete noob at this so sorry if there are any silly questions, but just need some guidance.

But yeah any replies welcome.

You can keep the injection, there's a guy on TMF, think he's Fusion Fabrication that does an inlet manifold that clears the bulkhead.

Either will work, the one with trumpets will flow better as the trumpets will prevent turbulent air entering the head which is good if your staying NA, if you plan on going turbo then just buy the one without trumpets as they'll make no difference under boost.
As for your ECU, try to pick one that your tuner knows, as it'll be easier for them when tuning.

You will also need -
Driveshafts
Exhaust manifold
Fuel pump

Your best bet is to read all the build diaries on here and on TMF before you make your mind up. You will find the problems people have come up against and how they solved them.

Good luck and I am looking forward to another Micra build.

If you can weld you can modify one from another car. Rover K series is popular and I think a VW Polo one is close. I used a Peugeot 206 one.
