Anyone thinking of this? Not bad numbers from a small engine ....or too small of numbers for the effort?

That's around 50 bhp more than the MGB engine - more than half again what the MGB puts out, so a pretty significant bump in performance.

Not everyone has to be looking for drag race power - a modest amount in the 120-140 bhp is a laudable goal too.

At 121hp it would put an MGB into the 7second 0-60 range. I think the 3 cylinder eco only weighs 210 lbs.
Only issue is no stand alone mngt. VCT is not easy to manage, and no trans adapter to longitudinal use.
