Td5 conversion problems..??

I have a customer who wants 300 ft/lbs of torque out of a build I am doing.. I thought about the m&d 300tdi 2.8 kit with the allisport intercooler etc etc.. But I really want to get to know the td5 setups.. Thinking of doing the build using complete td5 setup..with the allisport full length intercooler and egr block off and eliminate cat and remapped ecu I believe 340 is easily achievable and still get 27+ mpg.. Anyone have any real life experience to talk me out of it..??

No experience and I would never talk anyone out of an improvement project.
I have heard of people turning up the HS2.8 to yield about 450 ft/lb of torque. I believe Prins did that to their Dakar Wildcats.

Now if you figured out how to drop the TdV6 into a defender then you'll be on a role.
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
