Interesting you mention this Kent, it has generated a lot of interest on
the V8 Owners Forum. The discussion has also unearthed some trick
prototype Rover heads that never went into production done by tuning
guru David Vizard and capable of flowing enough air to support 500 bhp.
Unlike the Wildcats they are not new castings but radically re-worked
standard heads featuring big offset valves. There's some nice photos of
them on the site at


There's also some info on 300 heads and discussion about Real Steel's
yet to be released Rover heads.
