    Yes , the last one i did was a 3.9 with a holley and offy from a 3.5, the jetting was more suited to the 3.9 (it ran 13.2 in Jens pop) Have fun !

    Agreed re the Holley ,ideally suited to a 3.9 or tuned 3.5 . I think a stock 3.5 Rover only consumes about 365cfm.

    The only real difference between a carb or injection 3.5 RV8 is that the heads in the injection engine will have a little recess cut into the inlet ports of the heads to take the injectors.
    However, this makes no difference when running a carb on the engine. It's just a useful tip to work out what induction system the engine started life with at the factory!
