Had built ,its a 5 litre rover built by Ray at v8 development they have been doing some tests on oils and he's told me to use
Carlube triple r 10w 60 fully synthetic (against everything we've been told ) he says it came out top by a mile

Thanx Ian. As you suggest, against all we've been told.
My gut is telling me that the Rover V8 is probably younger than the SBC's that are used? so a 20w 50 oil probably would not suit at all. IMHO.
