    Show Off Your Mini!!

    Hey, why not, we have a 'Show off your L body' thread and that one is successful Lots of different Mini build threads but not all in one place pics soooo... Simon, AJ, MilkCarton, Johnny, I know there's a bunch of 'us' out there I'll start with some Woody pics. Still pretty stock other than 11.25 brakes, double pivot K frame from a 93 Mini, full 2.5" Mandrel exhaust. Soon to be lowered and intercooled

    My ugly beast that I drive every day and use to haul all kinds of stuff.

    89 LE with 2.5 Turbo and 3 speed.

    The 2.5 is rebuilt with weisco pistons and ARP hardware. Head has light porting and conical valve springs. It has a garret TII Turbo and a full 3" exhaust. Running 18psi
    Transmission is rebuilt and the valve body has all the tricks.

    Cool, I just snagged a set of PT buckets for mine and wondered how difficult it'd end up being to get them bolted up. Looks like you just use a couple pieces of flat AL bolted to the factory brackets and the seats.

    I did a write up on it somewhere. They are great seats. Plus it makes the passenger side adjustable.

I converted it to a 2.5 Turbo, probe intercooler, Garrett turbo, A520 with chromo plate 1990 electronics, 20+ injectors, dual exhaust, 255 walbro, American Racing wheels, OH console with compass and temp, power quarter windows, Pillar pod with autometer gauges, Cadilliac auto tilt rear view mirror, lower front console with TV, 5" autometer tack with shiftlight, 1990 front bumper, and many other modifications. I take the van to many car shows and was in part of the 06 Hot Rod Power Tour. I did all of the work except the machine work and the paint ( I was not painting at the time).
