Why Choose an RPi Engine?

Our blocks
All of the blocks we use go through the same process to ensure they aren't cracked. First, we chemically clean the blocks to ensure that all the oil and waterways are clear. Then, the liners are removed, and the block pressure tested at beyond operating temperature. If a block fails this test, we simply don't use it, and our reliability record speaks for itself with many thousands of engines built and still running.
Our components
We use the best quality components in all our engines, using the experience we've gained over the last 30 years of Rover V8 engines. For example, we only use Piper cams, Cloyes, kent or Genuine Land Rover timing chain sets, OEM tappets and much more
Our experience
RPi have been working on Rover V8 engines and the vehicles they power for the last 30 years, and in that time Holly, our only engine builder, has built over 2000 Rover V8 engines of all specifications.
