I'd choose water injection over nitrous. It can be metered and fed for a longer period and provides the additional oxygen at a lower temp. Nitrous is typically a quick shot delivered in conjunction with additional fuel. It's also hard on the bottom end. I can't imagine using it for this application even if the additional fuel comes from lower oxygen levels at high elevations, not higher fuel pressure/flow.

State of mind:

You look at a 427 Cobra and wonder "how fast can I go in it?", you look at a Land Rover and wonder "where can it take me?"

I look at my Land Rovers and wonder "What's going to break next?"

I look at mine and fondly remember 36 years of trips from coast to coast and dream of where we might go next. Of course it helps that over the years I have become very good at field repairs and have learned to strengthen assemblies that have broken in the past.

Series Land Rovers and Defenders are the stuff of dreams.

Engine tuning and the way you set up your tractor is all relevant. No power steering and hard-ass leaf springs on the highway can be very uncomfortable for many.

Whiteknuckling it all depends on the drivers insanity level. I had my Series One 2.0 up to 70mph without an overdrive this weekend. cursing speed 60-65 and its so insane and loud but I put up with it... and so did Josh.

I can't wait to instal my overdrive this weekend
