Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

You can always do a LS swap, this will require quite a bit of modification and electrical work to get everything working correctly though

hello

another expert here

the Rover / Buick V8 thats in these cars is quite a small unit so this limits the choices

however the 1st thing to establish is how much wiring and ECU work you're willing to undertake? as if you want the car to work as it did before just with a lot more power then its quite involved to get all the security systems and instruments working

the LS swap as Shawn mentioned will result in a great car as most LS engine make at least 350bhp but you will need an adaptor bell housing, new clutch , flywheel etc

also the extra torque of the LS will probably be very unkind to the rover transmission so thats another consideration

So I'd recommend that you may want to consider rebuilding your current unit as the rover V8 can make a reliable 300bhp with the right parts which will then interface as well as the original engine
