V12 MGB-GT.m2t
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.

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 cooling. For more information: http://www.slowcarfast.com





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.

1966 MGB with a Rover V8 - Episode 1 - The "Slipped Liner"
Ken Smith of Kenzmyth Productions takes a turn as talent in the short video of what to look out for in the early Rover V8 engines with possible "slipped liners", also known as inserts or sleeves. His 1966 MGB V8 conversion project developed this problem necessitating the removal of the Rover 3.5 liter engine and trashing of the aluminum block. Enjoy! BE SURE TO RATE THIS VIDEO.

(HD) EP: MG B GT Overdrive 1974 - Giro di prova - Test Drive - Probefahrt - Prueba de manejo
We make these videos because we love cars. Please help us keep making them by liking our videos. Thank you very much! Recently we came across this beautiful MG B GT Overdrive 1974 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The MGB is a sports car launched by MG Cars in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965. The six-cylinder MGC debuted in 1967; a later derivative fitted with the Buick-based Rover V8 was made from 1973 to 1976. MGB/MGC production continued until October 1980 variously by the British Motor Corporation and its successors, British Motor Holdings and British Leyland Motor Corporation.

My new precious: an MG Costello GT Mk1 V8 (thanks Lawrence!).
