Don’t let the stock looks fool you, as this 1966 MGB GT hides a Honda S2000 powerplant capable of more than 200 horsepower and a screaming 9000 rpm redline.

How was this wolf in sheep’s clothing created, and what’s it like to drive? You’ll have to read the upcoming July issue of Classic Motorsports to find out.

Amazing as the Honda 2000 powetrain is, it will never create the deep sombre burble of a properly set up (twin SU-carbed) B-series lump.....

Looking forward to the July issue !

I'll have to pick that issue up to see if they used a 2.0 or 2.2 engine (I'd opt for the latter).

We have a local Morgan with that engine and this MGA has one:

While the MGA roadster made a nice swap, I like the idea of using the MGB GT with a few more mod cons to make inclement weather a bit more tolerable.

I keep telling my MG friends that want to do old style V8 swaps that they are hackneyed and old fashioned and that modern 4 cylinders will get them there too.
