Mini-me simply means putting a vtec head on a non-vtec engine. You're engine would be almost identical to the y5 if you did this. You can prolly get the head for 50 bucks, rather then the engine for 500.

Mini-Me
 
I can go for the VTEC, I just watched a Mini-Me Civic go...It was pretty cool. I am in, so, where do I start looking?

SVOboy 04-10-2006 04:32 PM

Well, it's the same VTEC-E
 
Well, it's the same VTEC-E you were still looking for, don't get confused with the standard mini-me. Lemme find a few links real quick.

There's the how to. It's not all that bad really, then you need to ecu and head and that kinda ****.

Vtec-E
 
Well, I suppose the head I am looking for will from the D16Y5. Now I just need to find one and an ECU to go with it....

And a 5 wire o2 sensor. It all shouldn't be that much if you shop around.

I am not all that buff on the electrical side of this swap, what else do I need to be thinking about?

Just the wiring. It's not really that bad, I've done a lot recently with no experience. Just read up A LOT beforehand.

D16Y5 Head
 
This is looking pretty good. I have been looking at this all night, lol...I have seen some pretty quick HX's around Honda-Tech. I need this mini-me swap. There is an entire wiring harness with ECU from a HX on E-bay right now for 80 bucks, should I pick it up?? Or could I find a better deal on a ECU? The same person is selling the complete motor (but unsure of the miles...) I still need to find a Head.

Odd are you can use your own wiring harness with a few modifications. You'll definately want the ECU however. Maybe getting the ECU and harness is worth it?

As for the engine, how much is he charging for it? It might be wise to place a "wanted to buy" ad on honda-tech for either the head or the complete engine.

The number of miles probably isn't as important. Hondas tend to run forever.

BTW, I just checked out the ebay auction.. Here it is

Something you might find interesting is that the engine comes with an o2 sensor. I'm assuming the HX used a five wire o2 sensor, so that's esentially a free $100+ o2 sensor with that engine.

The $375 + $250 s/h is a bit much.
