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

MGB chasing black ferrari
Charity day at castle combe. Ferreri driver cant handle an MGB being faster. On seeing the MGB about to
overtake he suddenly dives into the pit lane. Makes me Laugh! Had my
friends 8 year old son in the car he thought it was great. Well done Ben.
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.

This is my 59' Hayes Clipper 220 Cummins first start in 10 plus years. Put
a couple batteries in it and she whirled right over and fired.

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
