More shiny bits!

How much of the original design do these later incarnations of the Rover V8 retain?

If you get the four main iterations of the engine together, they all have the basic family resemblance.

Main changes were related to block strengthening, distributor drive and its deletion, cross-bolted main bearings and 10-bolt heads rather than 14-bolt.

Later engines had a concentric oil pump in the timing cover, rather than a gear pump driven from the distributor, which was deleted.

Bore sizes went up, as did the stroke for the 4.6.

People fit bigger engines, Overfinch for example, but it's out of character in my view and not really what you want for towing heavy stuff, which is why we have it in the first place.

There is no substitute for cubic capacity, and for towing torque is king

Agreed, but we are limited to 3500kg trailer gross weight, so 225bhp is pretty much OK, the Discovery 4.0 is 185bhp, and more than adequate, the TD5 is 135bhp and OK but you do feel the lack of grunt.
