Kelvin - interesting idea, but why waste a nice motor like that on a Magnette 

The crossflow heads with 4 ports do respond to injection, and indeed 
Tecalemit-Jackson (sp?) made a mechanical set-up in the old days that 
apparently worked fairly well. Of course you'd still be one camshaft away 
from a REAL MG motor.......

For those unfamiliar with mechanical injection, it uses a cam that controls 
fuel flow - instead of programming a computer or burning another PROM chip, 
you just take the old Dremel to the fuel cam to lean it out in some part of 
the range, or make a new cam.

I had seriously considered a conversion to FI on my old Lambo, but when I 
found out what the cost of replacing 6 - 40 DCOEs was, figured that I could 
find something much less expensive to play with.
