Welcome to my build page for my B18C Type-R Spec R Mini
This page might not be the prettiest but it is meant to effective and easy to navigate.
Maybe one day I will make it more pleasing to the eyes.
A quick introduction and story of the mini..
A little bit about me.
I am a previous owner of a R53 MINI by BMW
A founder of a local Mini Cooper Owners Club: Club MINI Quebec
About the Mini
At the end of 2013 I was planning on buying another R53 (2006 Competition Edition Chili Red), when a hockey accident happened and confined me to a couch for a couple of months
Once I was getting better and had resumed my search, a friend of mine showed me his Classic Mini that he had and was perhaps interested in selling it. This is where I regained my enthusiasm for the Classic Mini and started researching
Finally in february 2014 I saw a British Racing Green Mini freshly imported from Italy and I felt in love with it
March 19, 2014, this car was in my possession and it's a real love story.
Only 'problem' with the Mini is the fact that the 50hp 1275cc is far from what I enjoy in term of acceleration and this is where this vtec swap begins ;-)
