I just purchased a 1980 mgb this weekend, I have an engine and transmission from a 95 firebird. I am planning on making them one. From what I read it can be done the exhaust is the part scaring me the most. This should be a fun toy when it is done I am sure I will need lots of advice alo g the way

Can we talk you out of it?

I say this primarily because your LT1/T-56 does not fit as well as other combos that are lighter, as well. Very likely will be 250lbs heavier than my Buick 215/T-5.

What will be your use for this car when finished, Pro Street, drag car, cruiser?
