Okay, I'll play..this would only apply if I could keep my current stable...3 camel trucks and my 130.)
It would have to be a bowler and a tomb raider.. And both would get use like they're supposed to..

When in American do as the American's do. If that takes dropping American iron or alloy block under the hood to keep the Rover Rovering, then do it.

I for one assume that supplies of Tdi and V8 engines is finite.

As for the Two Rovers, Rob has it right RRS TdV8 and I'll keep my 90, but probably upgrade a few features

Most engines are one derivative of another..slight changes that make them their own, I have lost count of how many trucks use a Perkins Diesel engine but call it their own..Saab v6 is Saturn is GM .. Point is that BMC or the rover group bought the rights to the design many years ago.. While the design is buick, the engine is rover.. They used BMW engines in rovers but made slight changes etc.. A factory engine is a factory engine.. A transplant is a transplant.. Unless it's a straight 6 holden engine in a series in Australia.. It's just not right..
