SIII Petrol Engine transplants, open 2 suggestions.
I've recently acquired another project to keep me off the streets, in the shape of a Series III 6 cylinder LWB Ragtop. This beasty is sans the old 6 cylinder Rover lump, so the question arises is what to put there.
I know that the common swap is the holden red 6, with the 186 seeming to be the preferred size though most people are fitting the 202 because its more available and the Rego regs allow it.
My dilemma is that I have a reasonable alloyhead crossflow 3.3 that I already own that I could press gang into service, an adapter kit is available (cheaper than the holden kit)so the conversion is do able. The spare parts I have also include a holden 6 with kit but its never been fitted to this vehicle.
Thing is, in all the forums I have been able to scour there hasn't been much in the way of comparison in performance/problems between using the red6/crossflow. So I was hoping that perhaps someone lurking on this forum may have some salient knowledge they'd like to pass on.
