I loved my 6cyl in the Shorland. I could do 65mph when flat and held 35/45 up steep hills. Not bad for 6,500LB armored rover

You need one out of a 58 SII or a factory six cylinder truck as SI had mechanical clutch linkages.

I certainly wouldn't go through the expense of installing a rover 6 but I quite liked the euro 2.6 in my 109. Around town it was downright speedy. I did feel like I was living with bipolar chimpanzee based on all the hate for these so I was pretty paranoid about maintenance. Listen to the advice of others, 2.25 of you want a rover lump.
