The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This video show the very first (and successful) attempt at starting the new engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1 month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious moment.

MGB V8 0-100mph
NONE of this is full throttle and all soft shifting... while juggling
camera and hat and a hard right hand curve. Think car is good for 130+ with
4sec 0-60 once broken in. Here just got new oil (Brad Penn) and she's at
200 miles since new Rover aluminum 4.6 ?300HP? .During the agonizing seven
years it took to get this car back from the engine/suspension whiz who said
it would take a year or less (constant excuses) to finish, I kept telling
him "you gotta complete it - my health is deteriorating" but IMHO he didn't
listen/care. It is a wonderful car but with recent twin charcot feet and
other disabilities I have to sell it, unable to safely drive it anymore.

1980 MGB LE V8 For Sale 215 Olds V8 T5 speed
Updated 9/14/13 Marc Gottlieb's 1980 MGB LE V8 conversion is once again up
for sale. I sold this car a couple of years ago and then bought it back in
the Spring so I could drive it for the summer. Now I found a Bad Boy Chevy
V6 Miata and finishing up the ultimate MGB V8 so I need the room. This has
the outstanding lightweight 215 Olds V8 coupled to a 95 T5 5 speed
transmission. Did I forget to mention it has air conditioning. This car is
amazing. Great ride , sound and pulls through every gear. This car was
built by Tom Hoagland of Richmond Automotive the way it was meant to be. It
started of as a low mileage survivor with 46,000 miles. The paint is mostly
original and I cleaned up the interior with new carpet, seat covers and top
so now it looks brand new. It has a rebuilt 1962 Olds 215 coupled to a
rebuilt T5 out of a 95 Camaro with new tires and LE
rims. The rebuilt drivetrain has been driven about 4,000 miles. Call my
cell for additional information 631-988-5087 or email me. My email is
