How much power has my MGB GT lost in 43 years? - Dyno run!
I put my car on a Dyno to see how much power it has lost over the years. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YouTube.AdamC3046 Secret Cruises invited me to Surrey Rolling Road to take pics and vids at a Dyno day that they were hosting. While I was there, I decided to put my car on the Dyno to see how much power it had lost. The MGB GT had a claimed original BHP of 95. The reading of the Dyno was 79.9, which records the wHP, rather than bHP. But simply speaking, I had only lost 16hp from new. Technically speaking, wHP is roughly 15% less than the bHP, so my car's original wHP would've been 80.75. So my car had realistically only lost 0.85wHP over the years, which is fantastic! I had managed to reach 105mph in my car (With an accurate speedometer) when I attended VMax-200 at Bruntingthorpe runway. So I know my car still had most of its power it originally had.

1974 MGB GT 1.8L Engine first start after rebuild.
Here is that ever anxious first start after the very expensive rebuild on my MBG GT engine. I got lucky and it just sprang into life. There are some issues with the gauges and I am having a little trouble tuning the carburetor, but the car is essentially back on the road !
MGB first start after sitting for 20 years
