Custom Performance MGB GT V8 - Road Test
Chris Goffey takes a look at a custom built, performance MGB, GT V8, and
has the privilege to take this unique car for a road test. The MGB sports a
4.6 litre Rover V8 engine, producing 265bhp and Chris will be using every
one of those ponies, as he puts the performance and handling to the test.

330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo.
First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results.
Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly
affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping
The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little
Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL.
Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly.
I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to
just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed
when he blocked me down the straight.
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.

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
