The unique Rover V8 engine, has been used for the ‘Morgan Plus 8’ application for many years. Essentially, it was borrowed from the Rover P5/P6 model, to the 1976 Rover SD1 models and 1986 Range Rover Classic models, onto the 1989 Flapper injection and 1989 hot-wire injection and finally to the 2000 & Sagem (Gems) injection to present date.
The understanding here is that being an engine built and intended for other vehicles with different load/weight characteristics from its intended use, efficiency, power, and engine correctness is always compromised in its standard form.
With early carb models, this was not much of an issue as they could be easily re-jetted and the igntion timing reset to take care of things. With the later fuel injection types (EFI), it is also very simple but does require changes to the ECU (chipping) regarding engine management system upgrades
Therefore, we have put together a special ‘Morgan Plus 8’ page to help show not only the essential chipping changes required, but also the other external upgrades that are simple and quick to fix and that will give some quite stunning results.
