I brought a new project at weekend a zs with t16 engine I drove 200 miles for it I got it a mile from home and the engine blow up. So happy days. Iv managed to get engine out and rebuild almost all of it. Who ever done the job really rushed it and wiring loom is all over the place. I just have one big dilemma and that is how to get the supercharged zs and t16 zs to pol. Lol
I'll put fuw pics on my album
What you guy think

How did it go, before blowing up??

Wonder if they will still have POL now it has all been knocked down??

Car looks OK, shame the engine blew up.

To be honest I swapped it for my run about zs rio red to, but unfortunately no it run like absolutely bag of poo the dude who had it know nufink about mg it wouldn't start when it got there would only start thro bumping it. Absolutely crap when needed fuel half way home. Was blowing lods of oil out of the breather pipe when under boost. To put it straight it was ragged so hard by someone. But I built the supercharged zs and am a mechanic. So rebuilt engine and sprayed block blue engine is pretty much built up now with all accessories. So not long she be running. As for pol it been on every year so far part from this year do to circumstances

good job you know your way around the motor.

Was wondering what the parts supply was like for a T16 engine and found this. Amazing you can get so much. https://www.gb-ent.com/collections/rover-t16

Just have to have deep pockets.

Have to keep us updated and power output when it is all run in.

Good luck with it.

To be fair is quite amazing how many parts you can still get for that engine considering there nearly 35 year old. Iv only built it all with standard parts due to the fact I want to see that it all works properly in the zs as like I said the loom is a absolute mess. But I have another t16 engine stored away which broke many years ago so I'm going to rebuild that with expensive parts lol.
Mate you want try getting parts for the supercharged zs you got better chances of seeing pigs fly
