    is it just a o ring or is it shaped if it is just a o ring try a motor factors if its shapes try and find your old rover dealer sometimes they still have these things or will be able to tell you were to get one

    You dont need to use and o ring, you can make a gasket out of a cereal box no problem :) I'm actually being serious too

    As for remapping the standard rover ecu, ive only heard of one company doing it called reidy remaps (google them) your other option is getting a standalone ecu like emerald

    does work well the cardboard box trick used it many of times but the rovers do need a ring and its not a flat on flat service

    From Power Train Projects...came with its own 'O' ring....simply take off the air intake hose and unscrew the four screws,pull off the necessary hoses,bolt it back on....hook up the new throttle cable you will need to order from them....Vroom Vroom!
