Land Rover TD6

How come I never hear about this engine going into a Defender? The TD6 has 250hp stock. Too many computers? That would be one killer NAS 110 diesel conversion! Maybe the R380 couldn't handle that much torque though.

It is a huge project. There is one place in the UK that did it, but it was a big job. you cannot use teh R380. You need to take the gearbox with it. Completely different.

That sounds funny...almost mythical..."There was this guy....it was a dark and stormy Monday morning....." It never ceases to amaze me the lengths that owners will go who spend whatever it takes once they have a vision of what they want. While the Sultan of Brunei is the king of that obsession, Mike Tyson was a close second with "I really, really need the stereo knobs also covered in red ostrich hydes..."
