here is the thought process, i am about to leave the states heading back to germany, where my 325is will be getting a 3.2l m3 engine with all the goodies, i also wanted to start working on a classic mini and pimp it out as street gokart. --> have engine that would probably suffice in the lil mini body to give it some balls. hance the oddball question if it can be done or not.

Anything can be done with the right amount of time and money. As to your question, maybe try looking up the dimensions? Im sure it will have to be a custom job.

there are mini's with V8's in them. basically u can do anything... u will have to do everything from scratch obviously, and most prolly have to mount the engine in the back.
i think it would be much easier, cheaper, and fast to put in a 4 cylinder with FI, or better yet a hayabusa engine
