    Japanese 4 cyl Diesel Engines.

    Hi all,

    For some crazy reason I spent the afternoon thinking about repowering options for Land Rovers.

    Has anyone seen a Holden Rodeo 2.8 Turbo / 3.0 Turbo fitted to a LR? A place in the UK makes kits for them. The engines would be reliatively plentiful, fairly bullet-proof, and probably a bit more refined than the 4 litre.

    The same place make a kit to fit a 3.5 litre Mazda truck/bus engine. This would be interesting, similinar to the Isuzu engined army 110s in a way.

    Anyway my two bobs worth

    I think there are plenty of modern diesels which would make ideal repowers for Landies. Even better that someone is making kits for them.

    Got any links?

    Of course engineering would be required to get it legally on the road, and that would probably mean better brakes - but good locally made disk brake conversions are also available (from Cookey )

    Wouldn't be cheap to do properly, but you'd get a good vehicle.

    Yes it wouldn't be a project for the faint of heart.

    Brakes would certainly need to be on the agenda.

    I was actually thinking it would be a good alternative to a 200tdi/300tdi.

    Here is a link below.
