Hello, I am fairly new to Rover Engines but am learning. years ago i purchased a complete 3.9 engine and decided i wanted to build it into a Stroker. I had come across a Leyland 4.4 Crankshaft and had the mains turned to fit the Block. I am wanting to get back into building this motor and was wondering if you guys could lead me in the right direction. i am wanting a Street engine that will run on pump gas. I am needing help with the rest of this build. This engine is going into a 1969 opel GT. If There is a Magazine or website that has this build i would love to view it. Thanks for any of your help.

I don't know much about Opels, but I know this will be one awesome car when you get it together. Welcome to BritishV8, Steve!

I have had and Love Opel GT's but they are hard to fit a V8 into unless you are willing to cut the hood
