Rover SD1 V8 Tuning Session
Rover SD1 3.5 V8 getting the twin SU carbs tuned to match the intake and Exhaust setup. Will it go bang or will it
survive the 2.5 hour beating at 5500 RPM and make even more power with the
carbs in tune?

Driving the LS1-powered MGB GT
The almost-finished LS1-powered MGB GT on the road! The car is a 1972
chassis that's been rebuilt from an almost-bare shell. Power comes from a
lightly modified 5.7l LS1 V8 from a 1998 Camaro Z28, running through a T56
6-speed transmission and a Positraction rear end. The front runs a
custom-built frame with Miata suspension and steering. The rear is a GM
axle with a custom three-link suspension. The body was widened using steel
flares from a Rabbit, and has been massively reinforced underneath to
handle the power and torque. It's not quite reassembled after the paint
job, there's a bit of chrome missing along with the fenders.
All the work was done in my home garage on jackstands, including the paint.
It took about two years to build the car.

rear axle by BMC, Classic Conversions Eng. (CCE) Mounting kit and headers,
FAST CARS front suspension and brakes, composite rear springs, tube shocks,
panhard rod and anti-tramp by Doug Jackson and far more than we're willing
to admit. 0-60 MPH times approximately between 5.5 and 6.5 seconds- it has
not been officially timed but these conversions have no problem in the
passing lane going uphill in the mountains.

Failed motor swap
I finally got my sr20det motor swap finished after several months of work,
it ended up having a really nice knock on at least 3 cylinders, if not all
4 cylinders, you can hear the knock at just over half of the video, I
purchased this motor from jdmenginescorp.com, do not buy from them!!!
MGB Ready for Nurburgring
A short video of my trip to the nurburgring in my 1968 MGB GT. It has
uprated brakes suspension and engine. The car performed great bu i kept
losing power due to the fuel pump not keeping up with the demand. The trip
was organised by the miniForum who i cant thank enough, it was the best
trip ever!!! Looks slow in the vid but felt very fast in a classic car!
More vids to come.
