Project Binky - Episode 24 - Austin Mini GT-Four - Turbocharged 4WD Mini

  • Published on May 12, 2019
  • In episode 24 of Project Binky we take a close look at the radiator pack and somehow squeeze a quart into a pint pot with a multitude of heat-exchangers. We also make a start on the ECU and engine wiring.

    Love the build but I guess you guys are getting tired or you have outsouced the production. It's lost its humour.

    A stone strike to the front of Binky will bring tears to your eyes, Chaps. Hope you are going to fit some protection.

    I love this video, it just confirms that EV is the future, all those parts & cooling system to end up going slower than an electric version. At least you can make plenty of videos on maintaining this dinosaur.

    Wiring the platypus correctly is as important as the inclusion of the platypus itself

      2 Platypuses wired in series melts wiring too fast. But 2 in Parallel makes 3 Platypuses.

    I am surprised that there is no cowling for the fan to help evenly draw air over the cores and a second "always on with AC" fan for the AC

    Especially on a high performance build, should that radiator not have a shroud? Get to it, Nick! ;-)

    AN fittings and lines for AC??? Can someone chime in on this? It seems rather alarming to me. Is there no better solution for custom stuff like this?
    I guess my big concern is the lack of o-rings.
    This is a big topic for me because I'm in the middle of figuring out a custom AC system for my 260Z and the one obstacle of it all is how to plump it.

    What gets me every time is the fact you guys fabricate all these shiny new brackets & fixings but the Celica block still looks like it was just pulled out of a scrap yard where it's sat for twenty years.
    What engine is that by the way ? 3S-GTE ?

    When you consider they may have 3 days a month to do this and the fact it took 2 days of work just for the air condenser out front and you begun to realize how much work is in modding a car like this . it also explains why it's been years of work and why they have aged so much in doing this project . I glad I had the chance to see this from the start and will wait for the end and any other project they want to start after this like the project car they teased a while back .

    Having made the exhaust pipe, and the charge cooler pipes suggest that Nick 'n Rick know exactly where the turbo and charge cooler are going to be. Have they already got them, and mounted them? Has the engine build been done?

      The failed ones. The ones that didn't fit. All that sort of thing. One-ofs, mounted on a hardwood base (suitably stained and polished) with a small plaque identifying where it was meant to go.
      I'd buy one.

    I've been following this for a while now. Some 5 years. Revisiting an early episode, I see you went to a track for a day out, and commented that you'd come back 'next year' with Binky.
    Is it taking a bit longer than intended? :)
