Eeehm?.....what's in this Rover boot?.....well the deep well is nicely filled with an aluminium tank...and way back you can see a pump which pumps the oil from the differential through an additional oil cooler.....No, no....yours (probably) doesn't need this stuff.

I love pics like this.....note the heat insulation wrapped around the exhaust manifold to prevent the heat to enter the engine bay. You can also see the oil pump for the dry-sump system driven by a large belt.
