Hey, you Puma bums, did you see this in the press release Chip posted?

“A select number of high-performance upgrades inspired by Defender Works V8 will also be available to purchase soon from Land Rover Classic, including power upgrades for the TDCi diesel engine, fast-road suspension and braking kits. ‘

Also note the red truck (Y8 WKS) shown in video was made in July of 15, and that JLR has neglected to correct their V5 with information on the petrol upgrade:

I always say, anything made to be collectable, ain't.

You would think they’d galvanize the chassis for the price they’re asking. It looks like the steering box mounts on the outside of the frame rail.



Maybe this is the brake kit they’ll offer separate.

It is a P38 steering box. It has been a common mod for a long time when the engine is too large.

Bitchin' brakes, but you'll need to go BIG with rims! Guessing 18" minimum.

Yep, you’re right. Part # ANR3242 / ANR5320. I wonder how they mounted it and what they did with the panhard rod. If they make these LHD it would be nice if their factory made parts can be ordered from them for our own conversions.
