MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - V8 Mini
|Some people have said the V8 is a bit of a tight squeeze in the MGB. Check out http://www.geocities.com/jharkola/Viku2.html and see what a tight squeeze is really like!!!|

|I love that car. It's tight, but the way the guy did it is great. I have seen V8 midgets and they have moved the firewall back, etc. ... which takes all the fun out of it. Wonder how the Mini V8's weight distribution is.|
|Now *that* is total insanity! Though actually you know, it probably didn't change the weight on the front end much at all. Don't some mini's have the 1800?|
It's one heckuva nice looking job. Sort of makes me wonder how it feels with the pedal mashed coming out of a turn. Simply amazing.
No, the mini always left the factory with the A series engine, it was the 1800 (Landcrab) that had the B series.
