Your 2.5TD (not 2.25) landrover is a piece of high quality engineering that has been carefully balanced to provide excellent road holding in addition to being the best off road vehicle, and now you want to put a tractor engine in it.

You might find the additional weight requires new springs + HD shocks and what about the additional torque going to do to 18 year old gearbox and axles ? Thought about what is going to happen to the power steering ?

If it works leave it alone.

Jono, I think we need to arrange for an ex-communication, perhaps The Honourable High Priest Garfish could preside over such a ceremony. Nothing too dramatic, just a bit of blood letting and purging should do nicely

Thanks Jono I was hoping you'd bring your engineering skills to the thread!. I could always put a 2.5 TDI 200 in to the Landie.

hey Jono how big is your winch!

IT hasn't got power stering by the way, but will soon have cos I am getting old and feeble

How many gears does the landie box have? TDI engine won't fit to a four speed but will fit some of the 5 speed boxes, depending which one you have.

You need to have a chat to Ben at Drovercare in Winchester.

Well at least some of the gears work.

If the performance is a little lacking there are some other options you could try. Emptying the 3.7 L yamaha engine & bits / junk out of the boot would reduce the weight considerably. Removing the roof rack would also reduce the weight and help the aero dynamics. A full service including new air filter and valve clearances will definately give it back the umph it needs.
