Kia Sedona used a 2.7l version of the KV6.Vincero said:How do you know that??? What's that been used in?
Not a 2litre K from Rover. Others have done that.Schtopper said:wasn't there a 2l K series though? so 2 x 1.5 = 3Ltr.
Yeah, but if they were to wind down the wick a little, run it at 200bhp (which is higher than what Rover normally allow out of the KV6) instead of 250 it would become far more reliable. Also, no doubt part of the cost is due to the custom/specialist nature of the build - if it was productionised costs would plummet.Schtopper said:yes but it's very expensive as you have to do a lot of strengthening to keep the engine reliable. I know JUDD do/did a 2L K series, which was a modified 1.8k. Ok it was a performance engine (250bhp) but even so it cost something around £13K mark and requires a rebuild every 3000miles.
As already said the 1.8 is a bored out 1.4 with increased stroke and is already very near it's economic reliability limit.
