Re: Rv8 oil leak problems

I've always tried to make the sump gasket a 2 day job, fit a new gasket with a smear of RTV both sides and fit it with the screws finger tight, following day or overnight nip them up to desired torque, I've done loads of engines this way

I ran carb, rover efi, and fast efi on it, but the exhaust never seemed to mind what I was doing :lol:

Re: 3.9 v8 exhaust options

I run the stock sd1 exhaust manifold, downpipes and Y piece on mine, welded on a 2" connector and a single jetex mid size box and straight out the back on the pop, sounded just right to me 8)
