110 on ebay us, not mine

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LAND-...exp=true#v4-49

would this get in, alot of their interpretation of the rules seems to be incorrect. and its heavily modified internally.

looks nice though.

I usually don't comment in these, but the quote in their ad sounded familiar.

eBay ad:

"Excellent news. The US Customs Service has seen fit to process the paperwork to release the vehicle. My tax dollars at work. Taking a flight to Houston in the morning and driving her back. Will let you both know my thoughts.

Appears they are really making life difficult on everyone who is importing a Land Rover these days. From what I understand they took photos and sent them to the NHTSA and USDOT representatives for them to clear the vehicle as well. The delay was waiting on responses from both agencies, Braden."

Of course had paint done, carpet, seats but everything else is original and unmodified. It looks great however still a 25 year old vehicle. VIN's match and have a letter from Land Rover certifying date of manufacture at 12/16/1987.

Frustrated because legitimacy of the vehicle is documented. Outfit I purchased from is also a legitimate organization. With all the BS that is going on right now with CBP and ICE I am on pins and needles waiting.

BRL is sending them to their Florida shop location. They are arriving in original condition - no modifications, no work, no paint nothing. They are the rust bucket 25 year old rovers. Then they have them titled in Florida as is. Once done and federalized they are clear to modify to their heart's content and sell - clean title no penalties.

Family has a body shop and garage operation down in Houston area. Considering approaching my contacts in the UK to see if they want to do something similar. Is all within the confines of the law. So long as the replacement engine is an EPA engine or 21 years old, other than that you can put a new chassis on, add AC, modernize and kit the car out with any modification you want.

Back on the engine question. If you exchange an engine for another engine 21 years of age then it is still exempt? However if the engine being exchanged is an EPA approved engine - irrespective of the remaining emission control package - I am speaking about diesel and not petrol - then as such the EPA should have no issues with the exchange and you should not lose your eligibility.

I have seen a few Defenders on the roads now that have swapped out their older Land Rover engines for the International 2.8L TGV and they are still allowed on the roads. The problem with the response from the EPA in your post is he is citing Bible and Verse from the regulations.

I am going to do some digging on this but I am willing to bet that if you have to replace an engine and that engine is not available or readily available and there was a newer EPA approved engine that was suitable as a replacement then as such it can be done. If not then why are people like ECR or ECO Offroad in the business of performing these swaps? They can't be blatantly be breaking the law like this? Another example Jeep CJ engine swaps - what makes that any different?

Got to love the myriad of the bullshit we have to go through just to get an answer to a question. Our tax dollars at work.

this is there other ad. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Land-...8164b069#v4-47

The Engine is a diesel 200TDi unit that we have retro fitted into the vehicle, this is not a problem with regards to importation as the year of engine manufacture is customs compliant and the fuel type remains the same as the day she rolled off the production line! The 200TDi engine is the very latest engine you can legally import into the USA and is the favourable choice of many due to its longevity, reliability and power output. We really do know our stuff!

I thought that the engikne had to be what was originally fitted?

just spoke with customs in baltimore, the 90 would be refused entry because of the 200tdi engine, so 16 bids and one disapointed person!

The 200tdi can only be fitted to the vehicle after importation. Not in the country of origin.
