Lagoon ?? That's a rarity on a 25 (mind you, not exactly common on a ZR either!)

Yes I already had a ZT in Lagoon so had to buy this 25 when it came up for sale relatively close to me. PROBABLY the only 25 in Lagoon to leave the factory and its only 45000 miles on an L series

Hi. I'm not new to MGs but new to the ZR (or build code X30)


We have a ZR160, 1 1/2 ZS180s and a ZTT400.

We have just got the ZR.
I have changed to K&N filter and about to fit a Scorpion exhaust.
and fit a Mk 1 front end, When I can find one

My first question (of many) is, who can map a ZR160 VVC to give more mid torque ?
.I will troll the forum and see what \I can find also for preparing for MGOT
.

SAWS Tuning would be a very good bet IMHO. Skilled engineer and very soft prices for a very fine result.

Ask @lolsteve98 who does the job and is a supporter of the forum.

Nice car, and a return to this forum for it - it was on here in 2012/13 when it belonged to matthastwell:
