1991 Rover - Austin 200 214 SLi 1.4 K-series from UK and Ireland
The little pocket rocket
My head gasket blew at 79000.
Replaced driver's seat.
Alternator went at 83000.
The car in general is a good, low cost, family car, and has a lot of benefits, and the more you push the car, the more it wants to go.
It started when I wanted more out of the car, so I took the head off, and started to port and polish the ports.
When the car came out of the factory, it had single point injection, so I changed it and put multi-point injection on it. I found it was quicker than most standard multi-point injections, because of not having the cat, but I was trying so much to get more out of the car, I modified the air box, and the car got faster and faster, but the car was so good, I didn't want to get rid of it, so now I've bought another one, but the cabriolet version.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
