200tdi in a RHD D-90

It appears a Disco 200TDI in a LHD D-90 is a bit of an undertaking. Is dropping a Disco 200 much easier in a RHD(my '94 D-90 started life as a diesel)?
Thanks,
Tim

There is a kit available to route the exhaust from the turbo away from the bulkhead. Can't quite remember who manufactures it though.

Steve Parker does a much better kit, http://www.steveparkers.co.uk/products.php?cat=213 although the parts are more expensive.

I went with a Defender 200tdi as it could use all factory parts, did not require any custom parts and could be converted to LHD with little effort in the future. I had a 2.5 NA diesel so it was real easy to drop the new one in.

Granted I paid more for the Defender version but I feel it was worth it (maybe $400 more).

Thanks,

We took a 300 Tdi exhaust manfold and turbo and switched that with the Disco parts. End of issue. Truck is now a lhd and has many trouble free miles. 8 new slightly longer bolts, an new manifold gasket, and 30 mins. 200 and 300 heads are interchangeable so the manifold parts interchange easily. The best part is that the 300 turbo makes slightly more boost. 300 Tdi exhaust manifolds and turbo's are frequently on ebay uk. As Dave said if you use a Defender engine with the top mounted turbo you will have no issues with left or right hand drive. As pointed out there is a company in the UK called Steve Parker who makes the down pipe and intercooler pipes for a problem free disco>defender swap.
