Ugh! Catheters! Glad you're recovering and through it all well.

The worst!! Nothing like having a string hanging out of your good time. I've had the manual extraction twice. In both instances I made totally impulsive purchases (sports car then motorcycle). Learned a lot about myself, namely that if the wedding tackle is offline, something must fill the void. And that something needed be fast. This was long before I could even think about purchasing a Defender. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AND A SPEEDY RECOVERY!!

Thanks! Sadly over $1k in shipping...

Am I on the list for the next round of adapters?

No mods to the steering box. I will be providing a new aluminum radiator.

There are about 20 configuration changes to two computers. (Can be done with HP Tuners) The ECU and the TCU which is inside the transmission.
Would an L83 work? Lots of torque!

No Gen5 yet. The engine mounts are in a different location and the fuel injection pump interferes with the steering box. Stay with the Gen4 for now.

Thanks for the info- I'll stick with an LC9.

I'm trying to arrange shipping quotes on the one I posted above. How much does an LC9 & 6L80e transmission weigh? Seller claims 700# but that sounds a bit high?

So no gen5 v8's. What about the new gen5 LV3 v6? That thing is its approaching LC9 levels of power with a much lighter and smaller package. It seems that with two less cylinders, it might fit without interference. I guess people are still more interested in the v8 though.

The LFX is too new. Everything is different. ECM, 6L50 trans, mounts and no one has solved the wiring and programming yet.

Too bad. I have seen more of the Gen 5 pop up around me lately. The Gen 4's I've seen are all pretty high mileage.

The Classic blew the engine. The 2a is getting the 300 that is being built now.
