The following is from under Metro Engine Identification Data

Whilst most of the engines do not really give a whole lot of difference in performance, the one outstanding version is the MG Metro engine. Where the majority of the variously similar power plants put out around 63-65bhp, the MG metro achieves a more spirited 70-74bhp. This is due to a higher compression ratio (10 -1), larger inlet valve (35.7mm instead of 33.3mm), and - mainly - a more sporty camshaft with half-decent induction and exhaust systems. the camshaft being the sportiest fitted to any production A-series engine. It uses the inlet profile and timing of the original 997 Cooper cam and the exhaust specification of the old Leyland Special Tuning '731' fast road cam.

MG Metro 1275cc 72 bhp 100+bhp Easy performance boost without engine mods.

The engine is wrapped in plastic to ensure that nothing creeps inside and then enclosed in a wood crate for shipping.

We prefer that the buyer handle there own shipping. My last customer used You can also Google LTL Freight quote. If the engine interest you, we will send you all the info on the crate size, weight, shipping address, etc. that you will need to get an accurate quote.
