300 Tdi, I'm in

Allright, after many months of hemming and hawing I guess I'm going to put a 300 Tdi in the 109 project and return it to its diesel origin. I'm looking for a good one, not some clapped out greaseball. It has to be complete with exhaust and turbo and pump and everything If you have a serious contender let me know. I'm open to all offers. Don't really care if it's a Disco one, I can deal with the down pipe thing.
Also interested in an r380.
Mucho thanks.

Give these guys an email. I have never ordered from him but he seems to know what is going on. http://www.cws4x4.co.uk/ If I remember correctly he was at 2k USD for the Engine, Gearbox, and Pedal Box etc. I also think he added VAT on that so it could come in cheaper....

It would be interesting if you could buy a junked truck for parts, RORO shipping might be cheaper than a pallet of parts. RoverResouce in CT might be able to help you with that.....

LOL after years of listening to your dark side anti stock diesel diatribe, you now want a 2.5 liter diesel ?

Think you have the 200 and 300 mixed up. 300 is the same in both defender and disco except for air filter setup (defender has air filter hold down brackets held on by head bolts). The 200 tdi has two variants and the disco version fouls with the frame rail in a series.

Doug it's like this:
The thing needs to get done. OK guilty of being two faced and hollow. For what I'm going to do with the truck I guess I can live with the HP. I'd LOVE to fit something bigger in it, but it's a big hassle. I guess I can crank up the boost? I don't know much about all the variants of modern LR diesels, so I'm just throwing this out. Maybe a TD5 is better, dunno.
Ennyway, if you know of a good source pass it along.

Bill:

I think you'll be totally happy with a Tdi in the 109...you seem like you think it will be a dog, but when that turbo kicks in it's dang nice. Keep in mind I came from an 88" 2.5L petrol...so the Tdi was actually a step up in my book. Plus, you'll probably get mid-20s with mileage (versus my 10-12 with the Series).

PS - keep us all posted on where you source it from.

A few pointers as I am just wrapping up this exact project. 200tdi will make your life much simpler. For our customer he wanted to retain the series front, but to fit the engine in the bay proper you will need a short bell housing r380 or an lt77, you will have to butcher the seat box and shifter tunnel to make it work, custom driveshafts, custom fuel tank, the intercooler was a huge pain in the ass. It will be going home to the customer in about two weeks, if you wanted to come down take pics and see it first hand, I would have no problem showing you around. It will save you hours upon hours of guess work. Bring a trailer I have a few 300s

Thanks man. Already butchered the truck when I put the IH 345 in it. Took out all the tins on the breakfast, put in a Be Cool AL radiator with dual SPAL fans, opened up the bulkhead, made a new tunnel, blah blah blah...

This time its going on a RRCLWB chassis which I'll get dipped after fabbing the outriggers and tub supports and putting on the series rear crossmember.
I'm certainly going with an R380 and LT230.
