Bob regretfully passed it on to me to finish. I am hoping that my low expectations can rise to meet his high levels of quality to date.
I got a newly rebuilt V-6 engine, and a T-5 transmission with the car. I am in the process of making the conversion kit work on an engine it was not designed to fit.
My hopes are to have a nice looking, freeway compatible, and still a coastal curve chasing car. I would like something quiet, with longer legs, and moderate power increase over the I-4 engines and 4 speed trans.
Edit - it's now about 98% done. Are they ever "finished"? Runs like a scalded dog, and looks like a million bucks. OK, it did cost about a million bucks, but I think it's worth it! Made it's debut at MG-2013, sans interior and windows, top and a few other details. Watch for me, it's going to be a long distance runner! Turns 2200 RPM at 70 MPH.
