V8 Land Rover first start in 2 years
Thos 1974 Series III 109 stripped a gear tooth (or several) a couple of
years ago and hasn't been run since. Purely out of interest, I decided to
see if it would still go, with impressive results. The Landy was originally
fitted with the 2.6-litre 6-cylinder IOE engine, but is now running a
3.5-litre Rover V8 with SU carbs from an SD1.

Land Rover Discovery V8 Muscle, Silencer Removal, Before and After Sound
A before and after replacing the centre silencer on my 1995 Discovery 3.9
V8i. Also a quick 0-60 test. Meaty!
Only modification to Exhaust system so
far is the silencer removal... next up the catalytic converters will be
chopped out, and the rear silencer replaced by a cherry bomb or similar.
If I keep the vehicle, it's likely the headers will be replaced in favour
of some tubular extractor four-into-one items.
But for now, it sounds good -- definitely a V8, but not too anti-social!
