Sorry Rory but I left had left the motor trade by the time the KV6 was first fitted into the 800's, so I will be of no use to you at all!
I only know the previous Honda 2.7's (and 2.5's) that were very good engines indeed.
I always thought the 2.7 was the Honda engine and the 2.5 was the Rover one........or was it the other way round??
Always found the front wheel drive couldn't really cope with a V6 or that is how it felt when a I drove a couple.......
But I have to say the 800s are still good value (if you can find any) and also the Rover 75 with a V6 2.5, Connoisseur spec!
