As I will probably have the car for a few more days- I would like to raise the rear ride height (- and I do have the other set of coil-over shocks with std length springs). I would also like to fit a front hinge arrangement for the front end so that it is a flip front... and get the front a bit lower. Then there are more electrics to sort.........

Sooty - indulgence is good!
Turn7 - I really have no idea as I have never raced with an auto. However I think my old "Super B" had about 200HP (and 240HP with Nos) and ran 12.15/118 with a van diff ratio. The MeGa B probably has 310HP (Carbs/inlet less restrictive, exhaust less restrictive) but possibly weighs a 150lbs more so it should run in the 12's/110mph ish as it has a non race(Std) diff ratio.

Just to update, I have had to put the BGT back in the garage and surround it with "Stuff" so that I can fit an MX5 into the garage. So no more work done.
I cannot relist it yet due to "Rules"......But - should I ask a higher price now that I have driven it?

Well it got relisted automatically at 11.25 last night and sold at 11.35 on "Buy it Now" so I was not able to put a slightly increased price on after all! Still, the buyer is hoping to be able to collect tomorrow night.....

The BGT has been paid for and collected....A good genuine buyer who travelled 270 miles today with his trailer and is now travelling 270 miles back tonight.
A small part of me was sorry to see it go but it was time for me to move on and for it to be moved on. I did enjoy the various challenges and was very pleased to finally drive it and prove that a pro street V12 BGT could be built.

Thanks Sooty for your support.
As the MeGaB MGBGT V12 has been sold, I still have my Super Sprite V8 and so I may well get round to converting it back into street trim.....albeit 4 1/2 years after I said it, but I have done some other things.....But there isn't an Austin Healey section so I will post up in the general "Classic car" section.
