Bastards!

Now, don't take the feckin' piss (fat chance of that here!), but does anyone marinise (sp?) the old Rover/Buick V8? If not, why not and if so, who?

Hi mi old man http://www.lancingmarine.com/ has done lots of Rover V8s were popular with ski boats at one time plus jet pump combos. Used Nixon cast Ally (Log) Manifilds & Risers + Indirect or Direct cooling.

Thought I would add this url http://www.rpiv8.com/homepage.htm for RPi for some serious Rover V8 performance & tuning - have used for mi old TVR now sadly languishing in mi garage.
