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.

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

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
