Can you supply and fit my engine?

General fitting Costs and information. All V8 engines. To remove engine from existing vehicle, to make good engine bay for fitting new (cleaning, tidying of wiring and plumbing etc.) to remove engine ancillaries that are to be re-used and clean to a condition suitable for re-use (unless replacement or rebuild is required) i.e. Carbs, Injection system distributor, wiring etc. To install new engine, and all ancillaries. Set up, Crypton tune, road test for 100 - 150 miles (if possible) and when engine has been fully tested for leaks and any other problems and fully bedded in, to re-set up (required when engine has settled in) and return to customer. Total ?£POA labor, additional charge if air conditioned. If new short engine only (not full engine) please contact us and all other work is charged at our hourly labour rate. Consumables to include all new minor hoses, all hose clips, plugs, oil filter, ( *2) anti freeze) , cable ties etc. ?£POA. All other work, price on application.

How do I get best fuel economy from my V8 Efi?

The way to best economy is re-chipping the ECU and using an Optimax cam, this can find 10-15% more economy on a good condition motor (more on a high mileage one). Also the LPG System is very important if you want best economy, so beware of inferior systems (we know 'cos we have to replace them). The OMVL system with Lambda control is, in our opinion, by far the best (we can send you an info pack if you forward Lisa, your address) I already run many LPG V8 Rovers (see demonstration vehicles) and you would expect to save an average of 30% over diesel running costs, and 50% over petrol, and with further planned government fuel price rises in the pipeline, the savings are set to increase even more and the value of diesel powered vehicles will severely diminish.

Will I really save money by Converting to LPG?

This is only one of the huge benefits of dual fuel, you can also add, cleanest ever emissions, far longer engine life, huge price savings and cheaper engine servicing. Also, with the way things are turning out you would probably increase the value of you vehicle at the same time.
