13B Minor

The Morris Minor was a humble, utilitarian thing. A saloon for the district nurse, a pick-up for the greengrocer - 30bhp was all that was needed in the fifties.
But that doesn't mean we should write them off as sluggish dullards in the 21st century; all you need to do is throw in a Mazda 13B rotary engine, supercharge it, tune it up to 400bhp and bingo - you have a drag racer.

OK, it's probably a bit more complicated than that. Have a look here.
