    Rover V8 and R380 Gearbox

    Is there a sweet spot to aim for when looking for a cost effective used RV8 and manual gearbox combo to drop into a MK3 Sumo?

    There seem to be some interesting petrol & manual Range/Land Rover listings on eBay but it seems a bit odd to think that these are appropriate for a Pilgrim Sumo.

    I know there are other V8 options (Ford, Chevy, Lexus) but this seems like the logical route for my Sierra-based Sumo.

    Mathew(?),

    I have an RV8 & Cosworth T5 for sale on the forum that might be of interest. Look in the Parts for sale section or use the link below.

    Regards,
    Ian

    I've seen your post but it's outside my budget, Ian. Hence why I'm looking for a combo that I can hopefully lift from a running (but otherwise terminal) donor.

    Beware a land Rover engine and box in case it's a 4x4 box rather than a 2wd!!
