Rogue, Can't help with the transplant, but can say have had the 2.8 lump, Built like a Brick outhouse, bullet proof with loads of low down "GRUNT" fab motor. Good luck with the Transplant.

Brian



PS vauxhall proved cheaper for bits, twas used in the Frontera.

Thanks Brian. i had trooper in fact still got it and i love the engine unfortunately the rest of it disolved on the slipway. I've got qute a cool Landie (c reg) but it's a built gutless.

So if it can happen I'd be happy. IT was nice to see some Landie ads down the bottom for a wee while also!

I think the first step would be to uproot the current engine!

Rougue

You need to speak to these people first.
www.engineconversions.co.uk/landrover.html

They do the adaptors etc.
Excelent kits. I used one in my 2a - V8 conversion.

I believe a favoured engine to pop in the Landie is the Daihatsu Fourtrak 2.8TD.
