Yes Grasshopper,

Transit uses the same gear box only beefier. Ashcroft can convert the transit version over to bolt up to the lt230, thats what Bell Auto Service did. Given the engine I linked is a complete setup and has 50 miles on it I'd say thats a strong price indicator.

So even puma owners need to upgrade the box?

With statements like "to stiffen up the valve train" and "pumping excessive amounts of oil" and the all time worst; "low friction pistons with oil squirters" I think it is time to move this thread to the mud pit.

It'll be interesting to see how this conversion shakes out as to use the engine legally (on a federal level) it would have to be in the approved configuration which means all the equipment used to gain approval will need to be used. Not sure what that implies in terms of the filters, exhaust etc. as to install in NAS spec you would need to remove the existing system (tampering) and demonstrate that the new configuration is the same or better (emmisions) than the original.

Not trying to be the pessimist, just a discussionist.

Also is the transit the same GVWR class as the Defender? (sorry, limited search capability on the phone).

Hopefully they bring it out for the Ranger as well here then we should be well covered? If not then I guess we need to check once we know the details on the Transit models it goes in here.

What's a D90 Light Duty or Medium? 110 and 130 the same or different? Cant find it.

"The new 2014 Transit has a wide GVWR range from 8,600 to 10,360 pounds, which means excellent payload capacity. Here’s where Ford Transit capability really pays off.."

Guys - even if they put it in a Ranger (same GVW class I would figure) unless your 96 and later OBD2 rover (97NAS, later D1 and all D2 etc) came into the states federalized as diesel fuel as an option (they didn't) federally you can not put a diesel in.... Even if its same year or newer and retaining all equipment. It's NOT legal for highway use federally. Don't do it as a business - huge no-no.

Unless someone has newer regs in WRITING from the gov saying otherwise. This was what I got directly from them a couple years ago.

Up to a 95 - have at it as long as you follow the age and emission rules.

Crap, forgot about that bit Doug, thanks for the correction.

Up to 95 is still good though for many.

No worries... I've just been down this road a bunch and don't want to see anyone get burned.
