Rover T Series Turbo'd Engine

#1 Post by Mr Teddy Bear » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:19 am

What's it like living with this beast then chaps?

What is Turbo longevity like? and where to fix when it breaks?

What is the Rover ABS system like that inevitably comes as part of the package? I know the modulator is expensive but available with deep pockets, what about the wheel sensors?

Any advice gratefully accepted :)

Awesome to live with, as for abs you can buy all 4 sensors for under £150. The modules never go wrong (in the 20 years I’ve owned them). Abs rings still readily available.

Plenty of people out there to rebuild them if they go which is usually from lack of use.
