Holley LS Fest West dedicated to the Chevrolet LS V8 engines was held in Las Vegas. You could see a lot of bright cars on the show, but this ole Mini 1977 was the most impressive. Strange tuning for Mini was made in Canada. Under the hood is a 4.8-liter carburetor V8 with the additional mechanical compressor.
The British microcar had to be completely redone to make this SWAP possible. It got the strengthened subframe. The radiator is now located under the front seats. In addition, the Mini has now become rear-wheel drive and burns tires well. Watch the video.
