turbo MGA (1962 MGA with CA18DET)
A short drive in my MGA with a 4-cylinder Nissan 1.8 liter DOHC turbo engine. Specs are 4.1 diff, 10 lbs of Boost, 72-spoke MGC wire wheels and
195/60 15R tires.
I estimate that I have about 165-175 hp at the rear wheels.

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
