I have a Rover V8 engine and I would dearly love to know when it was made and the comp ratio so that I know whether to turbo it, blow it or blow the heads off, the engine no is 11A30136. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks, newbie Question Question Question

have a look here for info on RV8 engine numbers http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/content--name-Rover-V8-Engine-Numbers

Your engine was originally fitted to an SD1 with an auto box. The compression ratio was 9.35 : 1

The CR should be stamped near to the engine number
