We still have our V8 estate, so you can add me to the list. It still has the poor Ford engine but hopefully 2010 will see the LS2 installed.

Now that sounds interesting. Is that a one off or something that you will offer customers?
I will offer the conversion to customers but would want to perfect the transplant on our car first.

Better add me twice only provisionally bought a second one. Vin 312 my everyday car, and vin 239 my new ZT400. Will shortly be selling 312 though as there is no way in this world I can afford to keep both.

On a serious note, glad I sold the excellent BMW RWD 335D or don't own a 260 as an everyday car in these wintry conditions. FWD or AWD is the only choice, hence my Mondeo or GTR for some fun. Having said that the GTR has stayed in the garage - noway the idiots on the wintry roads are going to take me out.

Interesting, article in this months EVO regarding the 260 which I've placed on www.xpower-racing.com

I imagine in supercharged form the 260 is fun in dry conditions (never driven a Dreadnought conversion and probably never will - unless anyone is prepared to let me have a go, so can't make a real judgement).

Happy New Year guys and girls.

would a black 54 plate MG ZT-T 260 SE with 55k miles 1 owner car tempt a new owner out there, I think it can be owned for £5500 possibily a touch less. Few chips on front bumper and wheels could do with a refurb
thats cheap! :) where would i find such a car!? :)


'NO... must STOP!.. Need.. to.. Move.. out! Must.. get.. place of... my own!!!' :(

sucks! :( :( :(

Had mine since March 2008 and have added just over 50,000 miles since then.

Installed LPG the week after I got it and reckon fuel cost is similar (or a little less) than my old ZT-T cdti 135. :dddc:

Had mine (04 Mk1 SE) for about 2½ years now and currently on 74k. Loved every mile. Mk1 springs changed and a few other know issues sorted, just need to stop it blowing rads. New copper rad on order should stop it.

20+ smiles per gallon.

LS2 - The 6litre Corvette lump? How the hell does that fit!?! lol Would be interesting to see! Looking at the sizes, its quite a bit bigger. Who needs a heater anyway! lol

For reference, LS2 - 30"w x 27.5"d x 27.5"h
Ford Modular 4.6-2v - 26.5" x 23.5" x 26"
