VTEC Subframe for Classic Mini B16/B18
The frame is all brand new and uses the standard b16a2 top mounts with a bespoke rear mount included with the frame. It is designed for the b16a2 and although the design offers flexibility for mounting other engines will only guarantee fitment of the b16a2.As with all our frames the b16a2 frame can use the rubber donut/coil spring replacement or coilovers, and all with standard track and wheel base.The frame and engine/gearbox assembly will fit a standard round nose but room for an adequate size radiator and good flowing exhaust manifold will be a challenge to overcome.
If attempting fitment into a standard round nose would also recommend a flip front as the size of the engine/gearbox assembly will be extremely tight to fit through the bonnet opening.Use of the standard injection phlenum and ecu will require bulkhead mods, these can be minimised by cutting angling upwards and rewelding the inlet manifold. Use of itb throttle injection can be done without bulkhead mods.
