CDI motor swap

5 posts in this topic

So here's my plan CDI into my 97 Mitsubishi U42T Mini cab Mini truck. stock motor is 660cc about 42 hp and 40 ft lb, chipped cdi is supposed to do 65Hp and 95Ft lbs. I already picked up a core motor for mock up. Im on the lookout for a complete wrecked smart car. But as of now I'm looking for a 5 speed trans as my truck is a 4 spd and a used smart car clutch/flywheel unit to modify to run different clutch setup.

Sounds like a fun project but if you have the space in the truck why not put a real motor in there? A 2L would be a real good mover :D

An expensive modification. Reason:  You will need a custom engine control unit. Price typically above £1000.
