Relatively easy 302  or LS swap for  challenge budget.

It would be a good candidate for the challenge, that would be cool to see it there.

While I would like to do the V6 swap, time and funds aren't really there for it. Doing more with my CTS-V is the focus now.

I was hoping to.  Then the price of lumber went bonkers.

I'm not ambitious enough to attempt a ls in that, but do have some thoughts. I'll be up in SC for 5 weeks, starting February 14th. If still around, (and I don't get that cool azz Austin) I'll check with ya bout getting by to look it over. 
Looks like a great deal, so my wife hopes it will be gone by then cheeky

The LS is no harder to swap than the Ford and the results would be an order of magnitude better. Getting LS under the bonnet is not going to happen, but for most cases does it really matter?

Keith Tanner got a LS under the stock hood, so it is possible. LS MGB  Just depends on how ambitious you are.

Unfortunately, I know I am not as talented, motivated, OR as ambitious as them blush

Having all that power (the ford or the easy button hp ls) would be nothing but bragging rights for me... the only race I will ever run anymore would be at a challenge. Way to many tickets in my younger days! And "the financial manager is not interest at all in auto crossing. Maybe a rally cross or gambler one day, if the economy ever allows my outgoing to be less than income again. cryingA pretty rumble in a dd/tool around car would be nice, but that's not even as important as it used to be. 
I do hope to run something in a challenge one day, but I plan to try for "slowest car ever to complete all categories " award (I think barefoot hold it at the moment?)

I had not thought of that one. Although I wouldn't do it to a rather nice mgb, it would be funny laugh

... and then I thought - some of the larger air cooled V's are getting into some reasonable HP...surprise

I do have a '97 3800 V6 / MT, with wiring harness, and a computer from an AT car, but I'm not sure I'm smart enough to (or have the patience for) getting that harness in a British car, and not having even worse than Lucas gremlins!!!
