but I've been told that the limited production run of the engine makes it hard to find parts that fit.
Rover had the aluminum version of this v8 architecture in production up until 2004, so tell em "Bullocks" when they claim you can't get parts.
Rover did convert everything to metric dimensions so i'm not sure if you'd have to bush the cam bearings but i don't think so. even if you had too bush the cam or rebore the cam tunnel, any decent machinist should be able to handle that.
www.TAPerformance.com ( Arizona ) and www.AluminumV8.com ( Michigan ) are two domestic US suppliers who should be able to answer any questions you have on this and source cams for you.
