Default Cappaccino engine

Hey guys,

This got me wondering, is the cappuccino engine just a 3 cylinder Suzuki with a cut down G13B twin cam head and a turbo?

If so is it a interstersting conversion option for the mini?

Gearbox is useless, hp wise it is not that great and as an upgrade a lot of Capuccino drivers fit a....Swift Gti engine.

They are smaller than G13B capacity wise per cylinder.
I know they get nearly 180Bhp from these engine but earlier engine had a cast iron block.
I think the bell housing is same as G13B so you can fit SJ gearbox to it.

Yes, I have a Japanese magazine for K-cars and they have a article about it.

I think G13B will be better than these engine anyway.
My mate had 367Bhp from his G13B with 75mm bore.
I have been in it and it was scary! Jerry had a ride in it and I think he will agree with me how rapid it was.
