Ah, ok, that makes sense (why there is a problem) though it must look strange to have the exhaust manifold on top and intake below..bizarre. I'd like to see a pic of that. Here's a pic of the engine on Ebay (believed to be from a Disco, sounds like it is from what you describe):

So, you really need both intake and exhaust manifolds together to 'convert' a Disco 200tdi to a Defender-installable engine.

Someone on a message board somewhere had definitely stated that the 200tdi was a stronger engine (if less powerful). *shrug* I have heard of the timing belt issue, though.

The turbo is in a completely different place, one of my mates fabricated a new exhaust from the turbo with some pretty sharp bends in it bud i think the steering would get in the way. You can see on the defender engine the turbo sits above the rocker cover, its still a close fit around the bulkhead

Here's a shot of the injection pump on my defender, not the same as a N/A diesel

any other shots you'd like (short of taking the engine out)?

Thanks Mike. That's pretty revealing. That has to be the weirdest location for a turbo I've ever seen. I can't think of another engine which routes it's exhaust manifold above the intake manifold!

Heh you'd think the heat would melt the paint on your hood

Having the turbo up there keeps it away from water when wading ridiculously deeply.
The whole engine bay runs much cooler than a petrol engine. No cooking eggs on the bonnet

Hi, I'm Chris, i'm from The Netherlands and I own a military '89 2.5na 110 (Royal Dutch Marines).



In the Dutch-LR-scene, the disco-2300tdi-upgrade is often discussed and I know of several people performing the swap, so it is defenately possible. I am planning to do the engine-swap in september. here's what i know about it:



The Disco's turbo is positioned higher and switching it for a Def in-and outlet and turbo, is extremely pricy. Having LHD-vehicles in Holland too, there is not enough room on the left-hand-side of the engine.



One way of dealing with the space-problem is turning the turbo one quarter and using a Saab-900- exhaust-pipe (only the first bit, the bend). U have to fiddle a bit with it, but it does seem to work.



As soon as I have pictures or a more detailed discription, I'l let you know.



BTW the exhaust-diameters are different, so you'l need to replace the entire exhaust



Toedeloe,

Chris



ps: have a look at my website: www.opwielen.nl (just follow the Land Rover)

I've found a Brittish website about fitting a Disco 200tdi in a Defender (TD).

http://www.muddy-tyres.net/200conv.asp

keep in mind that the steering is on the wrong/right, hmm, .. opposite site
