ex-mod t-case swap?

I have an ex-mod 110 with a 2.5 NA. I'm wondering if swapping the Transfer case to a 1.4 would be a better highway / mileage option?

That motor is what it is. And what it is is 68 hp.

This is the one mod I made to my 2.5 na. It helps in traffic.

There is a series with a big sign on the back that says:

Does Rovers North carry these or will I have to have one shipped from the UK?

I am the US rep for this modification. I hope you fellas have deep pockets as it has to be done by a QUALIFIED technician and there are many other parts and bits that go with it.

My wife and I bought a ex-MoD 90 a couple months ago.

I will tell you do NOT install a 1.2! You won't use 5th gear except on a long downhill.

If you find a source for 1.4 LT230 at reasonable prices please let me know. They seem to be very rare in the U.S.

How much difference will it make? I don't know but it has to be better than the 1.2 I have now.

While that sounds like a good price for a rebuilt LT230, I want to find a used one at a used price.

Thanks,

I knew it was what I needed, so I googled around and found it on Cafepress.com but I wish it were had bigger letters and better quality. Pretty damn funny though.

1.4 will give you less on an upgrade and very very slightly more on a flat or down...

You don't mention what size tires you are running so assuming 750 16 (235 85 16).
You could "upgrade" to a 1.4, but the advice of both Mike regarding the 1.2 and Raub on the lethargic 2.5 N/A is spot on.

Not sure where you live, but parts of WA have no shortage of upgrades, so if you think you are slow now, a 1.4 will give you less on an upgrade and very very slightly more on a flat or downgrade.

We generally swap the 2.5 N/A for a more powerful diesel: Isuzu 4JB1-T, Mercedes OM617, or Rover TDI.
Remember that pressing harder on the accelerator when it's all the way down won't give you any more speed, but will eventually damage the connective tissue in your right foot.

Haha, what if you rock forward and back really fast with one hand out the window slapping the side of the door yelling "come on baby, come on baby.." I swear I got like .25 more hp out of my diesel that way one time.
