I have just read with interest your article on the TR7 with V8 engine.
I have just completed 25,000 miles with my own version. In many ways the specification is similar, i.e. 11.1 compression and solid lifters but we have used a 4-barrel Holley carburettor. We have the 5-speed box but the 5-D-1 back axle ratio on 14″ wheels.
I have had no problems with this car at all even using the vehicle in London traffic 2 days a week.
Would you like a go in it?
