    Just to say hi to all at Honda Swap. Seems this is the site I have been looking for for a while, well ever since I got my Rover 216 Coupe with a D-series Honda Engine.
    This is my first Honda powered car and so far I am very impressed with it. Most of the British Cars are not exactly know for there reliability but I have had no such problems so far with my Honda Based Rover.

    Please be gentle with me, I am very new to Honda Engine's but have lots of experience in Turbo'd Rover Engines.

    I hope to learn alot here and hope that some day I can help someone with what I have learned from you guys.

    Anyway enough of this chit chat - Time to get down to business with me 1000 questions (Mostly to do with VTEC - Surprize !!!)

    Hope to get to know a few of you on here very soon.

    BTW - Great Site :worthy:

    Regards

    Chris

    Hi. Welcome to hondaswap

    What engine does car have eactly. Does it have VTEC? What year is it (have no fucking clue about rovers other then they power the Lotus Elise)

    Sorry to bitch at you on your first post but at hondaswap, we dont allow pictures in your signature, it takes up too much bandwith.

    Hi There Guys,

    Siggy has been sorted (see Below :) )

    The Rover I have is a 1993 Rover 216 Coupe, Powered be a Nasp, Non-VTEC Engine, D16Z2. 16valve SOHC.
    Rover changed from the D-series to the K-series (I Think) in about 1995 on>

    Though my car does not have VTEC - this is what I "Hope" to sort very soon. With the help of you VTEC Gods !!

    I live in Cambridgeshire - About an hour drive from Cambridge.

    Thanks for the warm welcome as well.....Sorry about the siggy thing.

    Regards

    Chris

    the K series didn't exist till about six yrs later 2001?? Might have been a B-series, which would be a worthwhile pursuit if you wanna show them rudeboyz what's up. It will be cool to speak with someone from England again, just remember it's tires not tyres on this side of the pond :D

    I think it's the accent that gets me or the fact that she can cook not like 90% of these mac & cheese bitches in the STATES.........

    I talk to quite a few ladies in Glasgow, that work with Hilton Hotels, the company I work with. Their accent is the sweetest thing since synthetic oils.

    Oh, and welcome to the site, sir.
