They airfreight with DHL over here; mine was shipped on a Friday and was in Seattle on Monday morning. http://turner-engineering.co.uk/html...inesreman.html You'll need ancillaries for that motor but any independent LR mechanic should be able to supply those and do the install. The dealer will rape you on any engine swap and their work will be no better (possibly worse) than the indy guys. Evilfj can provide the details, I'm sure.

How's the turner engine? Is it worth it?

Thanks. Bowie

The nice thing about the remanufactured ones is they use the t-top liner which will prevent the liner from dropping in the future even if you overheat the motor.

take your 3.9 to a competent machine shop and get them to look at it. there is a plenty of room for improvement at a fraction of the cost

It's still sitting in its crate. I'm going to start the swap soon, once the rest of the ancillaries get here.
