Welcome to TM 1854 sailor, that is one heavilly modified and rather special Morgan you have there. Nothing like a pair of twin bellmouths to add a bit of interesting induction ROAR.. thumbs

Yes, it has a nice throaty growl. I will, however, be adding some sort of filtration...

I guess it is a coin toss whether to choose to reduce volumetric efficiency in order to inhibit ingestion of dust or worse, or not..? I guess an intermediate stage could be mesh over the bell-mouths... ?

I was thinking something like the Ramair foam socks until I get it fully sorted out.

I am very jealous and would love to hear more about the mods, especially the carburettors, Cosworth head and gearbox. And also any reports on performance once you have some miles under the belt. The performance and handling is good even without mods so I'm guessing yours is rather special.

Because of a delay in getting the registry paperwork sorted out, I only had an hour or so drive before having to park it as I had previous travel plans and won't be back home for a few weeks (Dammit!). Even on the short jaunt I was duly impressed and quite surprised. I'll definitely be posting more as I get to know the car, and I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions.
