Alternative engines

Post by Tonkatoy »

I have a t25 panel van which is running a rover V8 3.9 engine, I have looked at the alternative engine section but cannot find any links to similar conversions, I know of at least 3 other vans and a doka with rover V8 conversions , looking to see if there are any owners of these beasts on here or any links to their build threads

See Vw t25 V8 on you tube, it’s the yellow panel van
Had it on the rolling road so 205 bhp at wheels, sine adding 100 shot of nitrous should be in excess of 300 bhp, looking forward to Santa Pod next year as failed miserably to get there this year !!!!
