This thing has been on Boston Craigslist for at least 6 months and looks fishy to me.
Very little descriptive detail and no mention of the necessary loom or computor to control it.

Buyer should do some real due diligence before getting excited here.

I called and talked to this guy; he ended up with several of these engines for a company that ran the London taxis in Boston. No ECU; no tranny, no real knowledge of engine but I believe.

He would take just about any reasonable offer I'd say; but there would be so much work to get this engine running in a defender

How many does he have ... If Boston taxi's have them does that mean some are EPA approved?

No it was a link company or something (maybe a hotel) that was running London taxis. I am sure they got some kind of an exemption to run the London taxis

------ Follow up post added December 29th, 2012 02:27 PM ------

I think he had 4 or 5

Surprised to see these still out there. But then again, perhaps not.

That price would be great but the hard part would be getting the wiring and fueling bits the ecu looks pretty straight forward though

Not that bad I don't think; it's a brand new crate engine; you might swing like $4K. He didn't seem desperate

Buy the front end off a smashed transit van in the UK ... Now that wouldn't be too hard.

Manual Pump???

The Turkish army supposedly used a cousin or version of this engine with a manual injection pump.
Suppose to be the same head without the common rail, but obviously manual injectors.
Andy at conversion precision engineering ltd did the original mock up for an engine adapter according to our conversations a few years back. They produced some engine adapters for Turkish armed forces.

Have always wanted to find a lead on this manual IP that would allow you to dump the ECU and common rail injection for something manual with no electronics. Had some friends in Afghanistan that would sometimes spend time in Turkey and none ever came across the manual Puma engine, so it must be very rare.

If anyone could locate this IP, lines, and injectors, now that would be a conversion... not anywhere as near the performance of the electronic version, but still a nice power plant.

Then there is the program your own ECU like a MegaSquirt for diesel... if only we had the time and money.
