Comparison of RV8 vs. Block Hugger Headers for MGB-V8

Comparison of RV8 vs. Block Hugger Headers for MGB-V8

Andy Achauer recently performed a series of dyno tests on a Rover V8, with some interesting results. Among other items compared, a comparison was made using a block hugger header versus a factory style MG RV8 header. Interestingly, the MG RV8 headers produced more power! Dan Lagrou, of D&D Fabrications, passed on to me the data from two of the dyno runs, shown below. Stay tuned, as Andy has offered to supply more data from the various runs, and we'll be publishing that data in an upcoming newsletter.
