Just been asked to advise on fitting a 12A into a mini. Seems churlish to refuse :-)

looks interesting ... what gearbox are you using ?

The exhaust looks like it will be interesting due to the offside driveshaft

It appears to be a vauxhall box. I\'ll be finding out more specifics next week. Whichever way, if someone is trying to do a rotary conversion suitable for FWD or mid engined cars, I gotta get involved.

say what?? a rotor powered mini?

heh, I have actually been asked the same thing before, but I thought even a rotor was too big for a mini engine bay??

I have seen FWD mazda 323s from new zealand before, but the motor is on the opposite side so the exhaust ports come out the front.

I have seen another website before, with the same idea, cant seem to find it on google, though.
