Rebuild Costs

I was wondering how much an engine rebuild for a 1997 Defender 90 would cost, or would it be better to go ahead a pay a little more for a TDI.

It would be much much cheaper to rebuild your current engine than installing a TDI.

It's not a little. Rebuild if you're not set on the tdi.

You are talking probably $2.5K versus $10K if others do the job. Otherwise, if you do it, more like $800 versus $5500, but you better know what you are doing. Rough numbers.

If I ever get my HS2.8L kit from Customs Broker, I will have a 4.0L from a '98 Disco with 57,000 miles for $1500+shipping, which will run about $200 terminal to terminal from where I am.
