Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - Z Series info required
|I and my team have been given the "enviable" task of carrying out Class Verification at this Easters National Meeting on the Gold Coast in Oz. Not being familiar with the Z series MG's I have been endeavoring to educate myself with limited success.|
Would any knowledgable souls out there care to comment on the accuracy or otherwise of the following information......
The following models have engines up to 2 litres....
All ZR models/ZS120/ZS TD
The following models have engines between 2 litres and 4 litres...
The ZT 260 is the only model with an engine above 4 litres
Thanks in advance
|The information you have is correct. However, I am not aware of a ZT220 - is this a Oz specific model (supercharged 2.5?)?|
|Some ZT160 models were 2.5 litre V6, some were 1.8 litre turbo.|
ZT120 was 1.8 litre
A ZS110 was available with a 1.6 litre engine.
|the zt220 will be in the over 4l class as per cams 1.7 x factor. yes it was an australian fitted extra|

|ZR 105 = 1.4 K SERIES|
ZR 120 - 1.8 K SERIES
ZR 160 = 1.8 K SERIES WITH VALRIABLE VALVE CONTROL
ZR 101 OR 115TD = 2.0 L SERIES DIESEL TURBO
ZS 115 = 1.6 K SERIES
ZS 120 = 1.8 K SERIES
ZS 180 = 2.5 KV6
ZS 101 OR 115TD = 2.0 L SERIES DIESEL TURBO
ZT 160 = 1.8 K SERIES TURBO OR 2.5 KV6
ZT 180 = 2.5 KV6
ZT 190 = 2.5 KV6
ZT 115 OR 130TD = 2.0 M97R BMW DIESEL COMMONRAIL TURBO
ZT 260 = 4.6 FORD V8 (SAME DESIGN AS THE MUSTANG)
ALL ZT-T MODEL ARE THE SAME AS THE ZT
mgtf 115 = 1.6 K SERIES

You guess correctly Ralph - this is the Sprintex Supercharged Australian ZT190 giving a useful 220bhp with the importers blessing. Also available here as an aftermarket modification for the KV6 powered MGs. :o)
|Or of course you could go mad a Sean Hyland's with a ZT260 if you want monster power|
oooh it's very tempting
