4 vuotta sitten

We originally found this Mini Cooper in Tokyo - one of the J-Spec models made specifically for the Japanese Domestic Market. After upgrading it with a supercharger and an E85 conversion, we decided it was time to take it to the next level and transform it into the ultimate Mini sleeper...

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

I really enjoyed the video, but I suspect that your next step will be to increase rim size in order to increase brake size and raise thermal capacity. Because no way those tiny rotors will do well with 200hp, even on a 700kg sled. Especially if you track the car... ;-)

I don't quiet get it why people hate on Honda's.. Yes there are the generic dickheads that have base model civic with a loud exhaust. Now I don't spite races, they call me out. Real world, I've had my s2000 for a decade and I've raced alot of cars, v8's, rx7's and pulsars, etc.. There's quiet a few. Overall, the NA engine has smoked them. I don't know their mods but generally the dickheads that don't know shit about their car but 'think its fast' It's sad

Have an s2000 with a F20c for over 10 years. I can Confidently say, maintain the engine and it will look after you.

Sour Skittles

George Richardson Maybe not to someone who knows, but to lamen, it’s just a mini. Would be hella confusing getting chopped by a mini making VTEC noises! But I agree. Although I’d say it looks closer to a JCW Mini.
George Richardson
George Richardson 5 kuukautta sitten
@Sour Skittles the cars exterior does not look stock at all! Therefore it is not a sleeper. It is lowered on wide aftermarket wheels with stretched tyres. A sleeper by definition is a powerful tuned car with stock everything on the exterior of the car. Stock OEM. This minis exterior is far from OEM.
Sour Skittles
Sour Skittles 5 kuukautta sitten
So what is it then? A classic Mini that looks like a mini in every way.. but with 900% the power over stock... that’s pretty much the definition of a sleeper

@Matt Barrett yeah! I see your point, i reckon if they bought a rolling shell they would have increased its value an ultimately get back whatever was put into it, what they did was devalue that car by not keeping it original! However that is the whole point of the channel to modify cars its not about profits.

So sorry and frustrated that I don't get the e85 bit isn't that the inferior ethanol fuel that is opposite to getting to have a nitrous instead . . . .I love your show but not the e85 bit.
Lance Secrest
Lance Secrest 10 kuukautta sitten
You CAN run mad boost with the alcohol, you know? Very high octane and cooling ability inside of the combustion chambers.
Antony Baddeley
Antony Baddeley 10 kuukautta sitten
Also the small thing that in Australia, running nitrous on the street is basically seen as a form of domestic terrorism - It's a big, big no-no. E85 is (relatively) cheap, easily available and won't land you in court/having your car defected/confiscated.
Dillon Orr
Dillon Orr 11 kuukautta sitten
E85 is an ethanol based fuel that's better for the environment, and also makes loads more power than standard gasoline. In Australia, it's used as race fuel. It's an easy way to make your car faster while saving the world at the expense of slightly worse MPGs.
