Konrad, I bought my B with a DGV fitted. It ran very nicely. I removed the
DGV and fitted twin SUs. I immediately discovered my motor had torque, had
a mid range, and revved. You already have the HIFs, and my experience with
these (on the last B) was that they are fine carbies. So, my tuning advice
for your DGV is to sell the thing, and use the proceeds to buy a rebuild
kit for the HIFs.

76 B - twin SUs, lowered, warm motor - yeah, she's finally a real MG
