SBF to Rover?
Looks like I'm going to have to go with with I got for the 109 project. It's a Ford 5.0 HO engine with fuel injection (Megasquirt) that was one of two that was going to go into a jet boat project. I'm going to have to do some switching around as the need for one of the two Fords has become greater than a future project's promise. That will leave the second 5.0 free to go into the 109.
I wonder what my options are as far as transmissions and transfer cases are concerned. If there is a way to connect the Ford to the regular old Rover trans that would be my choice. If I have to use something like an NV4500 or an NP435 or some other Ford-friendly trans, I wouldn't be too bothered. Transfer case I have now is a Dana 18/20 hybrid that would work just fine behind something like the NV4500.
I hope to find some aluminum heads in the future to further reduce the weight of the engine. Maybe even a Vortech blower! Wish it were a diesel but a bird in hand, y'know?
