Rover V8's

Post by Grant "Konvict" Heath on Tue Aug 16, 2011 7:34 am

I was wondering if anyone who is into the rover v8's that could give me some advice. I currently run a capri with a 3.5 rover v8 in superbangers, which has just started knocking baldy. I have got a rebuilt 3.9 sitting around however someone has warned me off them... is there anyone who could tell me different please? would the 3.9 be okay to use?

what revs are you running the 3.5 at? the only problem i can see you having is possibly over revving, i think the difference between the 3.9 and 3.5 maybe stroke which will mean you wont be able to rev it as much but if the revs are low enough you should b alright, it'll deffinately pull better, what was the reasoning for being warned off them,

yea, nothin wrong with 3.9.. same stroke as 3.5, just a bigger bore so ya can rev it to same as ya 3.5 but will have more torque.. everythin swaps over (appart from pistons)..
