improvements to V8 performance, reliability and safety|
Lakey is an MGBGTV8 enthusiast and a contributor for the popular Classic Car Weekly

the choice many owners will take. The performance improvements and reliability
with the modern Mazda gearbox and the subtle impact of the replacement on a Factory
MGBGTV8 of the replacement will be seen as real benefits. See
