Owner: Mike Barnes
City: St. Louis
Car Model: 1979 MGB
Engine: Currently 1967 MGB 1.8.

--------------------------------------This is the plan:--------------------------------------

Engine: Going to be Olds 215

Cooling: I'll try stock 1979 and see how it goes.

Exhaust: Block hugger headers, home-built exhaust probably with chambered mufflers for maximum ground clearance. Single or twin tail pipe exiting in the stock location.

Transmission: V8 Camaro T5

Rear Axle: Stock

Front Susp.: Stock

Rear Susp.: Stock

Brakes: Stock

Wheels/Tires: Starting with Rostyles with 185/70-14, will switch to Superlites with 195/60-15 as soon as I tear up the tyres currently on the car.

Body Mods: None

Interior: Stock

Electrical: Stock with the addition of relays on the large load items and a Saturn 100 amp alternator.

It's been a while since I posted here, things have progressed, and naturally, things changed along the way. The block hugger headers didn't happen, I have a set of RV8 headers on the way, and the cooling system got a 66 Mustang radiator.
