2.5 Petrol upgrade?
If I buy a UK spec 90 with a 2.5 gas engine, can I just drop in a 4.0 or 4.6?
I was thinking I wanted a 200 or 300 Tdi in the Defender 90 SW that I plan to import in 5-6 years. But now I am considering a gas engine instead- mainly due to cabin noise. I know the 4.0 is not the most reliable engine in the world, so what other options are there? I would also like to hook an automatic transmission to it.
I did a search but couldn't find an answer.
Any info appreciated.
