This conversion is easily the best bhp per pound conversion on any Midget – ever; very impressive:
Simon Ganderton's £120 DIY conversion, using a 1.4 SPi KSeries; he's measured 0-60 in 7.9s
The 1.6 KSeries is a very smooth engine, producing levels of power not far short of the 1.8:
Will Munns and his fine 1.6 conversion
Your KSeries Midget will want to visit Aldon Automotive for the annual MGCC Midget Register shoot-out:
BRB ready to show some BHP (all 154 of them)
Tim Dalton used a modified Lotus KSeries in RMV:
Tim's neat 180bhp KSeries
Here's Russ Morgan's 209bhp Midget. Russ was one of the original KSeries pioneers back in 1999. I was lucky to drive his 1.6 version around Castle Combe in 1999; this set me off with BRB. Russ' later conversion was a very neat 209bhp monster (near standard looking from the outside):
Russ Morgan's Midget: a very neat, innocuous 911-worrier!
Rob Griffiths' Racer
Be warned, here's where you are headed, given the budget:
The Rob Griffiths/Ian Day race KSeries 209 bhp Midget

Chartered engineer with MG Midget experience from June 1974. Now enjoying my 3rd MG Midget, a 1973 RWA, acquired end 1977. Converted to KSeries power in March 2002, it achieved class awards summer 2002 at Prescott and Curborough.
With a high level of enthusiasm for these cars, especially the KSeries conversions, I was invited by the forward thinking Midget Register committee to be KSeries Registrar; this gives me a unique opportunity to encourage more conversions to use the wonderful MG-Rover KSeries engine and enjoy the company of other KSeries owners in conjunction with their remarkable cars.
