Mini with VTEC

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by kirbyzook, Dec 30, 2004.

  1. Do any of you have the latest car and driver magazine? There's an article on this awesome Mini with a VTEC engine, with 220 BHP. The 0-60 time is 5 flat, and the 0-100 time is 11.9 seconds. It looks tight, unfortunately the article isn't online yet.
     
  2. does it have nawwws in it?
     
  3. I wonder what would be the max HP you could pump out of it?
     
  4. vtec sucks if you havent noticed.
     
  5. will it have nAWWWZZZ!?!?!
     
  6. But in the tiny Mini it would be good.
     
  7. actually, for the displacement it allows for better midrange and top end power without much of a cam profile sacrifice of choosing between one or the other.

    one company pumped out over 320hp on a K20A on 92 octane pump gas. thats over 320hp on a 2 liter motor running pump gas, pretty impressive by any standards.
     
  8. vtec isnt bad at all. hell porsche uses the same tech juss stepped up a bit (IVVT vs VVT). vtec is good for what it does, but its not the god of engine tuning like alot o peeps thing.
     
  9. What's wrong with it? It does its job of increasing fuel efficiency pretty well.

     
  10. meh, you get people doing this all the time. i met a guy with a Brown Mini Clubman with a Supercharged VTEC (not sure of displacement). it made the most insane sound ever
     
  11. You're such a nerd. You don't even know where that came from, you pedo.
     
  12. the stickers suck but the system is pretty good.
     
  13. attention: jokes about ricers are not funny, especially when they contain 'nawwzz,' so shut up.
     
  14. I think Toyota's VVT-i is better.

    I wonder how it compares to the one from the magazine, which is at www.gomini.com .
    I hope the MPG isn't 30... unless if that's for the city, 30 MPG isn't that good. If I were to get a classic mini, I'd want at least 40 MPG.
     
  23. That's just VVT-i, like my Yaris.

    30mpg isnt good for a mini 220+hp??? ok, you can take your extra 10mpg and keep your mini pushing 40hp.
     
  25. If it's city, then it's good, but if it's highway, it's bad.
