any ideas on what parts i would need to buy to fit a rover v8.

would the standard transmission setup cope with the extra power/torque.

is there an adapter plate available to fit the rover v8 to the suzuki gearbox.

what flywheel would i need. would i have to modify both flywheels to make one to fit the suzuki clutch.

exhaust are not a problem as i'd be making my own.
