sounds pretty good!

I've got to ask... you fitted a panel in the rear tub to get to the fuel pump... what did you use for the actual removable piece? thats just what i want to do to mine. i suppose any round piece of steel or ali would do, but yours looks like it's got a recess punched in it?

cheers

Yes. It was great hearing that turbo whine.
I have a stainless exhaust from a V8 that I'm thinking about using with the Td5 non cat down pipe.
I was looking at Td5 Alive the other day and their exhaust looks really good. Pricey.
Is it easy to find Td5 exhausts over there?

I used a Range Rover Classic fuel pump cover. Just go to a scrap yard and get one. That fuel pump access already saved me the hassle of dropping the fuel tank. We had the fuel lines crossed and it was getting very low fuel pressure. Checked the diagram plugged them correclty and it started right up.

I miss seeing your 110 project on lr4x4. Do you have a place where I can see what you've done lately?

Yes, the Td5 alive stuff looks good, but like you say, pricey.

a good friend of mine works at landrover on the engine development department, and he worked on the Td5, and hence know it inside out.

he says that one of the best value for money systems, is a non cat downpipe, the middle silencer "removal" pipe (like one of these and a plain rear system.

The pipes on a Td5 are 2.5", so is the Td5 alive one, so unless he has really smooth curves i don't think you'll gain that much.

But getting Td5 stuff here is easy. on ebay (like the link above) there's plenty. go to UK ebay "Td5 exhaust"



I was at a breakers yard today and they had a rangie in there! damn! i'll go back tomorrow and get it!

I removed my build up from the LR4x4 as there's been a lot of defender thefts in the UK, and i figured i was "advertising" mine a bit too much.

I'll PM you some photo's and an update.

I really like your truck. Nice 5 bar rubber in the back.

Are you one of those guys that enjoys building it and then sells it shortly after or plans to keep it forever?

If I can get double of what I put into it, I'll sell it. What are the chances of this happening? NEVER.

I still have them. And a NAS 110 chassis complete with drivetrain and rusted bulkhead. Was thinking of building it, but might sell. Are you interested?

Hey, why don't we move a bunch of these photos to this site? It makes them a little more perpetual in case you change your hosting or something and gives us a nice archive - if you aren't against it, but don't have the time, I can work on it.

Jim. I can put the images on an FTP site for you to download. Do you want all of them?
I didin't want to flood Source with so many photos.

Yes, and FTP would be ideal. Then I'll go through them and put up a nice selection.

You can buy the fender skins off the shelf for Td5/300Tdi (with the air intake hole on the RH side) and cut-outs for the rollcage (bear in mind they'll have the Td5 shaped hole for the turn-light repeaters too)



RH wing ASB710480 (used to be ALR7974)

LH wing ASB710490 (used to be ALR7975) both are 91.40 UKP (each)

These are used on the G4 and defender "black" special editions (plus numerous others i suspect with the front cage on)

Ah that makes things easier if you are switching a NAS90 to a diesel and you don't want to use a snorkle. Certainly easier to and cleaner to use td5 turn light repeaters than to cut air intake hole in the NAS fender. Well easier for most.
