  • MG Midget *update*

    So i acquired the psb mg midget whore car and blew up the motor in a week :mellow:

    Now i want to chuck something fun in there.

    So far thoughts are:

    Original A series british donk and do a complete build up (stroke, webers or equivalent and maybe a snail)

    12a or 13b and gearbox from an rx7 (requires a custom oilpan, engine mounts)

    A15 Datto with the similar treatment as the british donk.

    or

    4AGE (requires custom mounts and to butcher the tranny tunnel)

    Any other suggestions?
    Any contacts?

        go the suzuki 1.3 GTi engine. Makes those cars fly The GB for them has a weak 2nd gear though. Probably from dumping the clutch at 8K

          What specifically is the issue? I think doing a 13b conversion would require the same amount of permits/engineering etc.

          It's still a much newer donk, and as far as engine swaps are concerned I believe it's encouraged to use a newer motor.

                    Oil additive, oil pressure spiked, then lost all pressure by the time i coasted to the side of the road it had heat seized.

                        East-west engine config, the midgets north-south. Makes it a pain to try rig up.

                            These cars are really small, lighter, more compact the engine the better.
                            EJ swap will blow the budget me thinks.

                              Import EJ20T can be had for around 4.5k including harness. Not sure about the rest of the crap to make it fit though.
