    Is it a 5.0l V8?
    It’s a 400 Kev, so a tweaked 3.9 RV8 with a claimed 240bhp. Probably plenty for road use.

    My SR has a 3.9 with a 3.33 Jag diff, 15'' wheels and have no idea of the h p but in my opinion it has
    enough to get me into trouble, I think it is a good combination and has given me great pleasure.
    I only consider myself someone that can drive to a reasonable standard and nothing more .
    If I were to use it for track days etc would probably need more power to compete.
    I have looked at some of you build up threads and am sure you will enjoy your work when it's
    all run in .
    Have also pinched the idea that was suggested with the oil filler cap about removing the orange
    plastic part, it is now fully polished and looks great, didn't think it was worth doing previously
    but I am glad I did.
    I know simple things and all that.
    Chris.

    Looks good. Removed all the junk by hand or did you media blast etc. Painted with brush? Interested in your choices as there are lots of opinions out there. Cheers and keep up the good work.

    You really do a fantastic job, is that the only garage you have? If so it's incredible how you do what you do with limited space resource.
