    Rover V8 with Cosworth T5 gearbox for sale

    Hi,

    I am looking to sell the engine & gearbox, currently fitted and running in my Mk3 Pilgrim Sumo, to fund an upgrade to a Lexus 1UZ-Fe engine & BMW gearbox. I have listed it in the "Parts For Sale" section but thought it might be worth listing it here as it would be ideal for another Sumo build or to upgrade an existing Sumo to V8 power.

    The car is currently on the road so a test drive can be arranged to allow you to check out the performance prior to agreeing a purchase. Timescales are flexible but ideally I would like to use the Sumo over the summer with a view to SORNing it October / November time to start the project. This would mean the engine & gearbox being available at the back end of this year. Brief details of the engine & gearbox are below, full details including pictures, of the refurbishment of both are available and can be sent to anyone who is interested in buying them.

    The engine has done under 5,000 miles since the rebuild and has been fitted with a rev limiter since new (set to 5,000 rpm and increased to 6,000 in stages as the engine was run in). The gearbox was fitted 2016 and has done approximately 1,000 miles. I am open to reasonable offers.

    If you are interested let me know by PM and I will send the full specification and any other information you may require.

    Best regards,
    Ian
