Obviously yet someone else who has spoken to a bloke down the pub who's mate once read a car magazine saying the engine is pants, 's tuned properley are very rapid engines, and extremely robust. Tim is also a talented engineer, and solved his problem by developing a rugged five-speed gearbox conversion. Chartered engineer with MG Midget experience from June This is not strictly necessary for a KSeries conversion, but highly desirable if the potential of the conversion is to be used safely. But you need to play around with the body to accomodate the engine. The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. A second exhaust silencer was also added in
Converted to KSeries power in Marchit achieved class awards summer at Prescott and Curborough.
A reduced compression ratio of 8. The hood was now permanently attached to the car, with an improved mechanism making it much easier to use. The Beginning Frontline Developments was established in by Tim Fenna with a personal remit to improve the underpinnings and ultimately enhance the driving experience of classic MG cars. Our aim is always to provide top-notch engineering quality and high standards of service at realistic prices. As with all engine conversions, there are very many considerations at every stage of the project.
