LOL long time Pete, what's wrong with the LT230? They are pretty good as far as t-cases go, now the rest of the drive train well we all know about it. I'm not quiet ready to go over to the dark side, I need a second car first. I'll just stick to breaking rover stuff for now, I have more then enough spares.

You asked how to get 345hp out of the Rover v8? Might I direct you to our lovely 'search' feature, as I have extensively covered that in other posts..... (sorry, mike... I just HAD to do it :D)

Anyways, 3.9 block, 300 buick crank, either newer rover 10bolt or Buick 300 heads, Crower camshaft, that should get you to 5 liters with a block that you already have and no compatiblity problems. I'll keep you informed when I try the THOR swap, that would up the ponies a bit too.
www.aluminumv8.com for all the details on the combo.... the 'old small block Buick can really put out some power if you want it to.

cool stuff there, I really like those exhaust manifolds.... too bad I'm not a turbo kinda guy.

But man, that crankshaft would be pricey.... almost $2,000 for just the crank. I think D&D wants $425 for a converted Buick crank + $90 for the seal spacer to do the same thing. Actually, he just re-did the website, lists 4.0/4.6 blocks now as well as a lot more Rover specific stuff.

If you like superchargers I have your fix. How do you like Vortech SC? First get your truck running and then we can talk

I wish there was a way to put a whipple-charger on a Defender. Similar to a Roots, but helical screws instead of straight vanes. Better torque at lower RPM due to less pressure leakage.

You know I made the poll so everyone could see who voted for what, and I am surprised by who voted for what. I think I should have asked if anyone else would do it? Then there would be more you’re a nut Mike! Now would more of you vote the other way if it was a super charged Rover 5.0 putting out that kind of power? When I first saw the thing I thought it was a Callaway Rover 4.6 that puts out 250 hp, and if it was I would have gone for it, but I don't think I will, I have enough to work on right now.

You will toast your tranny, the t-case should live. It would be truely awesome though. My only question is, why a twin turbo with only 345 horses. A naturally asperated 350 can make 350 ponies. Or am I missing something? My buddies supercharged 350 pushes over 400 easy.

Well the #s are factory, and a little searching around I found a few places that put the #s up past 400 hp.

Well actually I like the Cummings 4bt, a little smaller then the 6 and it vibrates allot and makes allot of noise, those things are very important. But The diesels weigh a ton, sure they run underwater, but what good is that if you are sunk up to your frame in mud? The Land Roevr diesels are a bit lighter, but they are also allot lower in the power #s.

Please read this information about biodiesel. It is possible to make it yourself, but who has the facilities in their apartment? Not Mike, I'll bet.

A diesel without a lot of electrics is the route for the long-term owner. Something worth saving for when the V8 needs a rebuild. Then again, if you want water-tight you could just buy an ex-military truck with the 24v system. I mean, go ahead, feed the addiction. (I'm thinking of the scene in Less Than Zero when the pusher lights the pipe)
