…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Kimini 2.2?


The Kimini 2.2 is a “from-scratch, home-built, carbon shelled, mid-engined (Honda Prelude VTEC 4-cylinder) Mini.

After 3,000 hours of labor and $20K in components and material, I’d say the end result speaks for itself.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mid-Engine Integra?


This might not look like an Acura NSX (which is good, ‘cause it’s not), but for Dave, it’s even better (and I hope it is, since Dave sold his NSX to build this). What is it, you ask?

It is a 1994 Acura Integra GSR that has been converted into a mid-engined, rear wheel drive concoction via a transplanted 1997 Honda Prelude VTEC engine (and a ‘few’ other parts).

Designed to fly in stealth mode, both on the track and in the parking lot, Dave’s creation cost him only $10K, weighs only 2,700 lbs, and has an almost ideal 45/55 weight distribution. NSX it’s not, but who needs flashy, when you’ve got fast?
