M20. I think it sits pretty perfect. Here is how it sits in the 109. Clocked a bit but not really noticeable

Here we have the original disco driveline removed and stretch burned in. Definately starting to take shape.

R380 manual. I'm using the factory SA parts for my build.

yes, all of the defenders with BMW power plant utilized that manual transmission with the 1.6 case. the parts required to use that transmission are a bit more difficult to source since production was not very large. utilizing a 4 HP 22, which are extremely bountiful, and BMW converter with bell housing, which are also both bountiful,this can be a much more feasible option. and some folks prefer an automatic. me not included. lol

Looks awesome. I dropped an S52 from a 98 M3 into a 1985 E30 and did ODB1 conversion, 5 lug suspension, e36 steering rack. Fun car I built for the track, but then life got in the way. Also helped build an S52 into a 1988 M3 which was later supercharged. It went like stink! I transferred my auto obsession to rovers with my 2001 range rover that I have built up on 33s, a 2006 LR3, and hopefully importing a 1990 Santana/ defender-look-alike. I am investigating engine alternatives to the 2.5 diesel. Was considering dropping in a 300tdi, but I know the m50/52/s52 engines so well, it might be a great alternative. Is it difficult to source the parts from SA? The Santana has the R380 but I do prefer an auto when wheeling. I would have to change out the pedal assembly, fuel, etc.
