Rover SD1 V8 Conversion

Hi All,

I have a 1984 Rover SD1 2600 that I am looking to convert to use a Rover SD1 3500 V8, I know this should be an easy swap but was wondering if anyone within this forum has carried this mod out as I would be most grateful for any tips & technical advice on the modifications required.

The car will be running carbs and using the GM180 auto box.

Apologies if this has been asked before and apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section.

Many thanks,

Welcome to BritishV8, Chris!
I don't know anything about SD1s... but there's a loy of expertise in this community.
I'm hopeful you get a helpful response here.
You've certainly posted in the correct sub-forum.
