    From memory...when the LRV8 failed ..again..we looked into putting the son's Barra in the D1 and figured it would just fit. Adapting thou was gonna be v costly with no one having done it back then. So we fixed the V8 and sold it...well gave it away😐

    Would be a v challenging job indeed me thinks.

    Let me know when you find out how to do it!

    I was considering it recently to replace my Td5 but the whole gearbox/ transfer/ diffs/ electronics seemed like a lot of work

    I measured up a Barra to replace my Iveco engine when she blows, wont fit unless I put a bulge in the firewall or put a Pinzgauer nose on it & I wont be doing that . Since its got a mid mounted divorced TC I can easily put any Engine / gearbox that fits , will probably put a Commodore V6 & auto because they are cheap & plentiful. The original twin turbo 3L diesel only has 130kw / 400 nm so even a Commodore engine will have plenty of poke. I'm over diesels !

    so the barra fits but my mate said that the mods that have to be done are costly and just a hassle to be bothered with he said he can fit an LS1 cheaper as all the mods are avalible I didn't go into why it was hassle as he would have his reasons for this line of thinking as he is a very smart person. thanks all

    Laney how was cooling to be achieved? Did he look at radiator size type and cooling fan size type? Was he going to have to resort to electric? Keen to know how far he got with the planning.

    Cheers

    ozcott from what I understand he was going to use the xr6 cooling system but this needed some coustom work to fit I think this was part of his change of heart he is talking about selling the xr6 and going to the auctions to see if he can get a write off v8 holden or maybe an x5 diesel bmw. Sorry if Ican't be any clearer then that he is hard to keep up with and doe's my head in at times.
