I'm a retired technical professional who is 'taken' by Certain British Cars, and has a few of each : MGB(3), Spitfire(3) , E-type Jag (4). A recent car passion has been making nice MGBV6's. I've built 2 spitfires on gt6 chassis, restored E types, and added fuel injection to MGB and GT6. I am presently exploring routes to effectively and inexpensively fuel inject cars with were originally fitted with SU's and Zenith Stromberg Carbs.

The pieces can be made of many materials, ones available at a Home Depot type of place. I got mine from my project scrap pile. ...

I wanted to have a much neater, more efficient and suitable air filter setup for my MGBV6. The K&N conical filters look so ugly to me-a kludge-and they do not bring in cold air. This costs about 5% or so of horsepower. I made an air box of flat sheet steel, and built it to hold a modern high effieiency accordian style filter. I chose an inexpensive one that is readily available at any common auto parts place. The strategy is to use the volume alongside the motor and behind the radiator wh...

Disclaimer: read and use this information at your own risk. This is a report of my experiences. Previously I described how I modified carbs using only the simplest tools. In this procedure I used a hole saw in a drill press. In this case I modified a 1.75 inch ZS carb body and I used a 1 3/4 inch hole saw from harbor freight. It gives an attractive result immediately. This is the procedure I used: Step 1 clamp (or affix in some fashion) carb body in drill press Step ...
