Rechipping an RV8 engine
Mark Adams, Tornado Systems
Systems specialises in engine management technology, with a particular focus on
the Rover V8 engine in the many vehicles that it has powered.
The companys founder, Mark
Adams, started working with these engines and systems full-time back in 1992.

Mazda gearboxes for the MGB & MGBGTV8
Christian Disney, Vitesse
the availability of replacement parts and original complete gearboxes for the
MGBGTV8 increasingly difficult to find, many owners have looked to alternative
gearboxes as replacements like LT77 and R380 boxes but they too are becoming less
easy to find. Vitesse offer a 5 Speed Mazda Gearbox Conversion Kit for the MGBGTV8.
What is it like, how do the ratios compare with those of the original 4
box with overdrive on top gear, how does it perform, what does the installation
involve and how much does it cost? More
The technical Q&A session will have questions submitted ahead
of the event but some taken from those attending on the day.
