I helped a neighbor take two TR6s and make 1 nice one when I was a young teen it was my first real car work and it got me hooked.

If I read this right you put a 302? Did it change handling and if you did- did you compensate with different shocks/coil overs or whatever?

I grew up in Warner Robins Georgia dad retired there. Are you Army? If so thanks for your serve I spent eleventy billion yrs in the USMC haven't been right since

No real changes were needed as the weight gain was less than 100 lbs.

I did have to switch back from the QA1 shocks to the lever arm shocks for clearance on the headers.

I'm active Army over at Gordon. Uncles were both USMC

Thanks for this thread! On a 9 hour plane ride and it killed some time, and was interesting as hell to boot.

My second car was a 1977 MGB.

Semper Fi!
