Product Description


How to Power Tune Rover V8 Engines - ISBN 978-1-845848-8-2



This is the new version of the “go to” manual for Rover V8 engines, written by Des Hammill.

You probably won't get your Land Rover to do 162mph in 8.2 seconds, as Steve Green did with his Rover V8 powered Mk1 Cortina back in 2000/2001, or even get the speed that Nic Mann managed in his Morris Minor (80s/90s), but you might wring a few more HP out of it for very little money.

Everything you could want top know about increasing the performance and reliability of the Rover V8 engine which has been in production since 1967. Derived from a Buick design, the engine first appeared in the Rover P5B of 1967, but continued in use through subsequent Rover models: P6 and SD1. Not only a favourite of kit car builders, the Rover V8 also appeared in Morgans, TVRs, Land Rovers, Range Rovers, MGB V8 and the Leyland P76 in Australia. Coverage includes: limitations of standard components; short block preparation/clearances; solving the oiling & main cap problems of pre- 94 cylinder blocks; full details of cylinder head modifications; optimising ignition settings; exhaust system requirements; Holley, Weber & SU carburettor/inlet manifold options; camshaft & valve train requirements; modifications for racing; modifications for road use.



Applicable to all Rover V8 (Buick derived) engines.
