If you tied two slow diesel Land Rovers together, do they get twice as fast or? The voices in my head say if I drink two 5 Hour Energy drinks that I'll get 2.5 hours of Crunked Up instead of 10 hours of energy. Would the heart stopping niacin rush apply to these dogs as well?



on a more serious note, here is what I want you to look at on your lunch break, you can still go watch videos of Bane Cat and Worldstar fights after but look at this first:

After injectors the list is healthy. Start with a complement of Air leaks in fuel lines and IP out of tune.

its a great engine in my 90, plenty of power and returns great economy. Pretty sure the experience you are really discussing is an age old diesel vs gasoline argument that tips on either side with acceleration vs torque and performance vs economy.

Comes down to driving preference and location, if I was merging on highways all day I would be looking at a v8 swap, since I am more concerned with driving over things the diesel was the way to go.

I guess I should stoke the discussion a bit by adding that this truck has been sitting up in a storage lot for several years, is now free from bondage thanks to Mr. Hedrick, and in its current state there's no way it drive from the shire to Southampton to catch the boat. It falls on its face before turning enough RPM to support the 1-2 gear change. I am going to operate on the assumption that it ran properly (or was at least driveable) prior to sale.

At some time during its being held hostage it appears the truck was sent to a dealer who dropped the fuel tank. However none of the clamps up front appear to have been touched which would indicate they just did a bare minimum. I can see where it looks like the tank was taken out... need to look more closely at this.

Before swapping the fuel filter out I drained it into a Gatorade bottle and I have to admit what's accumulating on the bottom of the bottle looks like clear gel. The gauge indicates a little below half a tank and 5 gallons of that is fresh. New filter is installed and there is no change. I have also verified no restriction in the inlet of the lift pump, working on checking these other lines now, probably going to replace what else I can from lift pump to filter etc but I have my doubts about the lift pump itself. We will see...

Oh and first thing I did was replace the bleed hoses on the injectors as they were totally done for and bubbling while it was running.

The test for a properly running stock TDI Defender (no lift, no roof rack).... 0-60 should be under 20 seconds... It should pull well up to 70 mph. You should be able to manage at least 80 mph on the flat.

Roger that, John!


Also 1.2 t case in my RRC is not so quick off the line. But rolls easily at 80-85 on the top end, and 1.4 in my 90 is quicker off the line , but tops out at 75 plus.( Both 300 tdi)
