All I can muster on that 513 hp is a barely perceptable, gutteral, evil chuckle!
Bevin, ya got any of this white stuff at your place?

Okay Bevin,

Here ya go

If these guys can do crazy builds like this, then so can you :best:

Here is a mid-engine Prelude conversion, this is an exact option you are considering:
http://www.preludeonline.com/f82/new-here-mid-engine-rwd-prelude-238311/
http://www.myspace.com/team_x_mpls





Look ma, no engine:





And here is some crazy wacko who swapped in a V8. Check out the work he did. You can do this type of work to the MGB and get a Prelude engine in there in a rear-wheel drive configuration :_order:

http://honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=1645997















Here is the rear independent suspension being built. I don't know what it is out of, you'll need to read the thread for the details...



HOLY CRAP, I just discovered that thread is 32 pages long!!! Sheeeesh!

Ok,

I found out the red prelude with the V8 conversion is using a RX7 rear suspension. Also, he abandoned the project and parted out the car. Dang that was a lot of work for nothing...

Yup, I think this is how you should do it. Get some sub-frame assembly like this that you can just retrofit under the MGB. The IFS will handle better, and you can still put in a limited slip and do some drifting :bowdown: :driving: :boobs: :burnout:

Here is a Nissan 240SX rear subframe drop out:




Seriously, that doesn't look hard AT ALL to just drop under the rear of your MGB. The width of these are of course wider, so some modification will be required...
