    Engine certification

    Can someone point me in the direction of a thread on here recently that identified all the firms that will certify the engine age. I know Knight Racing will do it.......but there were others and some at a lighter price point?

    Thanks

    If it's a Rover V8 you'll need one of these for IVA.

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    Southern GT charged an extremely sensible £30 to date my American Engine, not sure if they do Rovers but very helpful.

    What is the usual procedure for this? Do you need to take the engine to them, or will photos be enough?

    - you are best giving your preferred agent a call. Terms and prices may differ.
