MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - 1968 mgb roadster rv8 conversion

i have a 1968 mg b roadster and was wondering if it was worth it to put a rover v8 in it. is it possable to put a rover v8 in a 1968 mgb roadster. where would i be able to find a rove v8 to put in?

do i have to change anything other than the engine when puting in a 1968 mgb roadster.

thanks everyone

A road tuned 3.5V8 should give 220bhp. The first requirement is a totally restored or new shell.

Check the conversion details on this site, and also under What's New - read articles on MG Owners Supersports a 4.6V8 conversion (mostly in 2000).

If still keen and you can source your required engine, buy the book (bible) How to give your MGB V8 Power by Roger Williams.


scot sorry about what that person wrote, thats not what this site is about. you can write as many as you want but some people are ass holes that don't have anything better to do


I don't think that's how you're supposed to spell 'Dumb Ass'...
