  • Possibly back in the 60V6 game. MGB + LX9

    Perhaps I should be posting at this time tomorrow when I know for sure, but here's the deal:

    I've had a nearly new LX9 floating around my shop for about 10 years. I bought it to swap into my Trooper way back when. But I didn't.

    Then I bought a T5 and figured I would stick it into an Opel Kadett. That didn't pan out either.

    But tomorrow, I may be buying a '73 MGB that has been in storage since 2000. Do you see where I'm going with this?

    '71 Opel Kadett Wagon - 1.9L CIH w/ Weber DGV 32/36, in bits

    sounds like a good plan to me. thats a good amount of power in a tiny car.

      There are kits and components to do it already. People have been swapping these engines into MGs for years. I've been shopping for an MG off and on for years as something to use my extra LX9 in.

        I didn't get the car. I passed because of structural rust. The LX9 will have to wait for something else.
