    Can't beat the sound of a V8.....

    I've been converting my '78 MGB to a V8 over the past year or so and its almost nearing completion - just a few odds and sods to do do, such as the speedo reverse lights etc but i thought i'd take a video whilst i was down there.

    I'm so happy with how its sounding, what do you reckon?

    Ignore the ticking noise that just the fuel pump working away as there is hardly any petrol in it!!

    I can't wait to get the thing on the road to be honest, as its took quite a bit of time and patience to get it all in and working as its gone far from straight forward at times!

    I had planned to get it all MOT ready this morning, but i've modified the speedo cable incorrectly! did the wrong bloody end as we didn't realise there was a slight difference in size nevermind i'm confident it will be worth the wait although i'm not looking forward to the petrol consumption!
