Jono what year of Rover did the Buick engine come out of? I have a 74 Chevy Luv and that might be the way for me to go for a v-8!

It's from an SD1 which was an 1986 car I think.... but the engine is the same as the Range Rover up to 1995 with the 3.5 litre, or you have the 4.0 & 4.6 litre from the P38 shape Range Rover which ran from 1995 through to 2003 I think it was..... the engines are exactly the same size, but the later ones have revised oil pumps and ignition systems along with more power!

The classic Range Rover 3.5 was 150bhp, but the 4.6 is 220bhp IIRC and can be taken up to 300 with out too much bother by all accounts ;)

Bit of an update as I forgot to throw up a few pics! LOL
Here is the bumper all welded up and finished:

And the start of my new stainless exhaust for the V8 :) should sound nice I think??

More to come in a week or so when I get back on dry land to (hopefully) finish her off!!

Not exactly truck work, but it is linked :)
Been messing about in the evenings this week to recover the crash hat, making it look little different and matching the trucks new colours ;)

here it is...... what you think?

Jonofd3,

Cool helmet! It looks like your head is being eaten by a sea anemine!

Hmmm a Drift P'up... Interesting Idea. I tried drifting once or twice (between you and me) and it didn't work so well... :lol: Looks pretty awesome
