Engine replacement in series/hybrid!

Recommended Posts

There was a guy who had his series 3 featured in LRO a couple of years ago who had used a rover t16.

It was highly tuned and put out about 300bhp iirc, this was mated to a disco mpi gearbox as it is essentially the same engine.

The later ones were 200bhp ish standard which would be plenty I would think.

So V8 rover is common, but what about the following........

Rover v6

Rover t16 (as done by markocosic from an rover 820)

Vauxhall Monza/Calton engine 6 cylinder 24v 3L!!

Vauxhall 16V

Jag 6 or V12 :blink:

I like the Calton 24v engine idea as its cheap to buy a whole car :)

Anything else petrol?

t16 looked interesting, but a bit complicated in fitting compared to the V8 so I aint swayyed yet :D
