    Rover v8 4-2-1 manifolds

    Evening all, my old 3.5 v8, had a splashy lumpy sounding idle no matter how I adjusted carbs and timing even after rebuilding Dissy and carbs and eventually whole engine the problem persisted. Now Ive swapped a 4.2 in it still sounds the same, even tried different carbs but still the idle is not a steady v8 beat. Has anyone found 4-2-1 headers to remove the off beat sound at idle. Once above idle it sounds like every other v8, any ideas? Cheers, Mark

    rover v8s have a 'funny' firing order like a few others (351w ford springs to mind). they don't sound 'even' at lower revs.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.
