    Hey!

    I have just reread my Rover V8 books by David Hardcstle about performance tuning the Rover V8. Many of the parts are available in the UK, but I can't find them in the USA. Such as Crane roller rockers and such.

    Can a screamin demon be made out of a 4.6 long block and a hot cam, or are big valve heads required?

    I would like to find out who could build a Rover V8 for me at a reasonable price.

    The 4.6 is an excellent starting point for good reliable horse power. Tim Lanocha has a 4.6 that has after market rods and pistons with Buick 340 heads, crane roller rockers, roller cam and is fuel injected that was dynoed with 284 rear wheel horse power. Potential of course! The most important part would be compression, cam, heads and right size and type of header. A 4 to 1 header with a 1-5/8 to 1/3/4 primary tube will be best. Tim Lanocha @ www.lanocharacing.com and of course Woody can get you anything stateside you need.

    This is a Tim Lanocha built 3.5 with crane roller rockers.
