rover v8 in FX

I'm thinking of putting a rover v8 in my FX, it hasnt got the original engine in it anyway so i've decided not to do a full original but rather a neat car with updated running gear. I know its not a Holden engine but it is all alloy which reduces weight from the original by 50 kg, has a sweet torque and power curve (thats why they use them in the rover 4wd's) has great power potential and are available pretty cheap second hand. I also think its a bit different to the v6 conversions and it'll sound a whole lot hornier. I'm expecting a lot of s#%& from the original owners but it sounds good to me. please post your comments.

FJ Steering

Hi All,

I am building an FJ up as a daily driver and first thing on the list is good steering. The motor will not be a 138, probably a 305 chev, so a colapsible link will be req'd in the steering. With this in mind what is the best steering setup I can go for, I know there is probably a limited amount of choice but I thought it was worth the ask.

V6 into F.J

Hi, i was told by a person on this site recently to consider a V6 mod into my Fj. Ive tried to get info from rod hadfield but they arent replying. Basically id like to know how much $$ for parts (including engine) i could expect to do this mod i would do labour myself, has anyone tried it and could give me some advice as to wether its worthwhile, i would like to keep the car very original except the running gear, thanks.

which engine?

Hi, im restoring an F.J holden and it is going to be my first car, I have always wanted to do up the original Grey motor, but lately people have told me to stick with the 161 red that was in it when i got it. I would be recoing either anyway, and i would like opinions. I would like it to go resonably well but i know they are both small engines, and i am considering gas, is it worth it?. So basically which should i go with, why and what basic things should i do? Thanks alot, Kirk. '
