MG MGF Technical - VTEC?
|These people fit VTEC engines to Minis using the K series Metro subframe:|
Makes you wonder abot an F installation...
|The VTEC has also been installed into the Elise too - so an F fitment should certainly be possible. If expensive :o(|
|Have received the following response from Watsons:|
"We do a kit to accept a civic type R motor and 6 speed box. £1750 plus VAT. I see no reason why this should not fit an MGF. There are slight differences in the mountings of the frame so it would be better to use a MGF frame to start ioff with, WE would have to talk and also measure up the engine bay to see which motor would fit best."
|Kit price inclusive of engine? Seems incredibly cheap! Are you thinking of going for it Peter?|
I would, but I'm not terribly sure if my insurer would look on the modification sympathetically.
On the other hand, the F's engine would go very nicely in my Mini - Watson's do a K series kit for the Mini too.
A VTEC F and a K series Mini would probably result in total insurance hell.
Then again, you only live once.
|My midget insurance only went up by about 40 after fitting a 1.6 K series. you can prolly get it insured as a kit car.|
|You *know* it makes Peter! ;o) LOL|
