I have a MGB Mark I (1965) which has undergone a full engine rebuild
recently. I had it dyno-tuned after a while because of various problems.
After a lot of stuffing around we found that one of the carbies was
being choked off by a dislodged seal and only one carby was working
properly! My question is...I have noticed that the "standard" power
output for an MGB (as listed in various manuals) is about 95 bhp. When I
had my 'B dyno-tuned the bloke told me that the " power has gone from 27
up to 67" but he didn't actually say what 'units' he was talking in. I
assume he was talking in kW? How does 67kW compare to 95bhp? The only
difference between my car and a stock standard is a slightly lumpier cam
(standard for most MGB rebuilds) and a gentle rebore (cap about 1860 cc
instead of 1798 cc). How does my power output compare to some of the
other MGB's out there?
I'll post a further question shortly about a noisy gearbox too!!
