Thanks! My first dyno appointment fell through. I have an appointment now for Thursday so I'll scan and post the results after.
I just had the car weighed this morning at the local landfill and it was actually a nice surprise. On mgexperience.com they listed the gross weight of a 1980 MGB around 2,500 pounds. My MGB only weighed in at 2,320 pounds with a full tank of gas (including spare tires, jack, etc). After doing a chrome bumper conversion and this engine/transmission swap, my MGB will probably shed at least 200 pounds. The only downside is that it cost $6.00 to weigh in!
