MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - Hi my name is Jonesy
|I've got a heritage shelled B with 4.6 John Eales motor (long story of how I got it), but the long and short of it is this baby rocks. I leave black tyre mark for about 40 feet when I smoke em up (not too often as Yokohama don't give their tyres away)|
Has anyone put their car down the drag strip? If so i'd like to hear some times.
Any bhp figures etc for your beast and other interesting specs.
|My car has also a 4.6 with Eales motor.|
I am not impress with the times. 14.558 is her best.
|Paul, what gearing do you run? That does sound extremely slow. 4-bbl or SUs?|
|I have a Volvo 3:30 gear ratio and a 650 Holley. I am not happy with the engine performance. Everything has been checked.|
Otherwise the engine runs great in traffic. I think is just the engine's best capabilities.
Engine workmanship is great no leaks etc.
|Paul, that sounds like an awful lot of carb. What if you put an Edelbrock 500 on there?|
|Harry, I tried the Carter 500 and it gave better feel during take off, but was lacking power in upper rpm's|
