    And the young owner was a very impressive young man, IMHO.

    The only thing it would be leaving behind is black plumes off diesel smoke. 6.2 litre Defender 90..6.2 litres of LS would do me just fine.

    Me too.
    We have a 6.2L supercharged engine in our current car, but same in a Defender would be the ultimate.

    Wonder how getting engineering would go?

    No chance in Tas...don't think we have any engineers here now anyway😐

    Vic looks most promising for mods now...eg. portals have been approved there but never in Tas.

    Think a 6.2 90 LR would be v problematic!
