The experience of many Rover SD1 Efi owners suffering faults with their fuel injection system is that expensive parts have often been purchased to cure a problem when a methodical approach to component testing would have found simple faults easily cured. Originally prepared for personal use it's appeal to SD1 Efi owners became obvious so a good quality version was prepared for sale.
