Paul,

They are talking about upgrading the internals I.E. Axles and cv's.

R&P might be in order depending on how you plan to use it.

Your 110 front has larger CV's so they might do ok.

Rear is cheap and easy.

Diff's start getting expensive

A 96 110 front has the crappy CVs. Basically both axles are crap in stock form. You want all chrome moly internals and real diffs Pinned HD ring and pinion of you go off road.

It also comes down to how hard are you going to drive it. My long term plan is to build a 609 rear then a front, in the mean time I do have all 24 spline guts but not Ashcroft so we'll have to see how they hold up.

hi all,
on the subject of differentials, axles shafts etc. i emailed david ashcroft and asked if the aschcroft air lockers, shafts and transfer case would take the extra grunt:i used the 6.2l v8 with the 6l80e as an example

"Yes the LT230 transfer cases are usually fine with this power,

The diffs and shafts will be OK assuming you lift off the power when the wheels are up to reduce shock loading,

This setup should work fine for you,"

further clarification came in the form of:

"Yes I mean when you are landing from a jump,

You should be OK with stock ratio diffs and a 1.2 ratio LT230"

i hope this is of help .

any updates on the adapters?? )

regards swaini

Hi all. So my Defender is all engineered and being used daily Its awesome fun but two things have cropped up...

1st is that IMHO 1.4:1 transfer box its no good, 100 KM/h is 2000 RPM which seems a bit high. I'm guessing 1.2:1 would give me 1700 @ 100 but am considering 1:1. I have a low mileage 1.2:1 "on the shelf" so I will give that a go first.

2nd, what have people done with their Airbox? I have a pod type filter that did not pass the engineering so a box type filter was bodged on (after dyno tuning) by a garage for the engineer but it was a joke, v badly fitted and only about 2.5" outlet. I have ripped it out again and put the pod back on but it is noisy and no water protection so was wondering what others have done?

For a LS1/2 in Australia, i would try one from PatrolDocta (great quality) I initially had one feeding my Duramax in my Defender but i wanted a bigger 1 for more air flow so built my own. They now build a 4 inch version which should provide enough airflow. Cheers Gaz

P.S . Great to see you have your 50th engineered!

All with the 5.3 LC9:


What are you using for oil?


What filter are you using?


Does your air intake (to the inlet manifold) face the front or rear of the engine?


Thanks,


Paul.

I wish! It will likely be another few years before that happens. In the meantime, I need to find a starter motor, alternator, water pump, belt tensioner pulley, dipstick, inlet manifold, A/C compressor, and who knows what else. But when she goes in, I want fresh oil!

Did I read somewhere that the stock (LC9) A/C compressor won't work?

It works with left hand drive only. Can't remember if yours is left or right.

My Ninety is RHD. I think that means I need a different compressor. Can anyone confirm? If so, what make/model do I need?
