And here I thought I was silly considering slapping my old six pots on the 110.

It's a build I have just about completed.. Complete transformation from a LRUK pizza into an absolutely beautiful 4.6 high comp engined r-380 machine... Full magnaflow system and some other mods... This car is quick and responsive and a ball to drive aggressively.. Upgraded suspension and installed stabilizer bar systems from a discovery.. Will be doing a build thread on it soon.. Just bedding the motor in now with a couple of hundred mile road trip to st Pete...

We found that when I completed the motor it was scary to drive like it was built to...rear drums etc weren't cutting it... This truck is sweet..

Customer is a guy who knows his cars and does some racing himself.. So the brakes and power delivery of the stock units just weren't cutting it... This truck had thrown me many curve balls and sleepless late nights.. But the final package I think has turned out nicely... Did I mention it's a ball to drive... One of the first nights I drove this I was challenged twice at stop lights by boy racers in their souped up rice burners...

I hope those Bilsteins on the floor is going on next. How do these Tarox LR kits (TAROX-KMLR0946)?

Couple of questions as I have a 280 to 300 horsepower 4.6 motor Defender myself. Does the Twisted setup stop noticeably better than stock? How much better is the twisted setup than the Tarox setup on tunemydefender. The Alcon/Twisted units are bigger and require 18" wheels which I do have. However, the Tarox will work with the stock wheels if you have wheel spacers and are a bit cheaper. I'd love to hear thoughts from anyone who is experienced with both.

------ Follow up post added April 1st, 2015 10:05 AM ------

and how many hours of labor should I expect per axle to install the Twisted setup?
