First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two
years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power
steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes
were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the
car out of the garage the first time.
And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera.
The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and
transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing
somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a
Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is
modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the
moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs.
Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the
MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with
a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better

I am building my first race car, a 1967 MGB-GT with a Jaguar V12 and am
hoping to be competitive in SCCA's EMod class. The class allows any engine
available in a car in the US to be put in any body that was available in
the US. In this video, I start the engine for the first time.
