    Thanks guys. Another challenge is to sort the steering. I've jacked the front end so much I get horrendous bump steer. Moving the rack down is a big job, so I will try to bring the steering arms out of the wheel and put the track rods above instead of below them.

    Fitted new rear springs with 50% higher rate to stop the body rubbing on the slicks at launch. Went to Shakey on Sunday and , along with a lot of other people , ran a PB! This time 12.09/112 with 1.75 60ft. Beginning to tune the nut holding the steering wheel...... Also saw some of Peter Donaldson's youtube clips from Gary's picnic - the front wheels DO leave the ground on launch! (though not like a certain MGBGT...)

    Many thanks. You could fit a mild turbo to the B series,using most of the kit from a metro turbo but new exhaust manifold. Also consider O series turbo from Maestro or Montego turbo.
