200tdi in a 1986

I already know the answer to the question but I wanted to make sure I vetted it with the group.
I am looking at a 1986 D90 that was recently brought into the country from the UK that had a 200tdi installed before it left the UK.
I know this is a big NO NO but the local DMV and Sheriff have given it a title and blessing and the import documents are all present.
Am I setting myself up for a confiscation if I buy it now?
I would also be transferring it to another state.

Thanks in advance for the input.

I'm sure you're mistaken. It probably had the engine installed when it got here. I'm sure you can agree this is the most reasonable thing that happened. I mean you didn't see it come off the boat, right? A trained, infallible, CBP employee looked at it and didn't see anything out of line. And if it's ever questioned in the future, that is the correct answer. Repeat after me, "Officer, I'm sure that engine must have been replaced after it was imported, or else how would it have gotten through customs, with all of the heightened scrutiny around Land Rover imports?"

I think you're mistaken. Your engine isn't a 200tdi. Its an earlier original engine. Easy mistake..they all look similar.

No risk of confiscation. Unless, of course, you have too many unpaid parking tickets.


You might consider deleting this thread if you're worried about it, since this board has been monitored in the past by persons who take an unusual interest in this subject matter.

Well it IS a 4 cyl diesel with a turbo they really are all just the same, right????
After talking with the wife it looks like a D110 is better for the family anyway so back to the web for more searching.
