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

moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs.
Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the

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

Classic Car Clinic's MGB raced at the Spa 6 hours using Evans waterless coolant
Classic Car Clinic's MGB raced at the Spa 6 hours on September 22, 2012.
Drivers Jean Michel Guermonprez and Vincent Bokstael.
At 3:00 minutes you can see how Evans Coolant doesn't boil when you open
the radiator cap of an engine that was raced for 3 hours! Don't try this
with a water based coolant or you will get seriously hurt, and your race
will be over! Evans Coolant has a booiling point of 180 degrees Celsius
which makes it perfect for any race- or classic car.
