Arrow RR L322- Diesel Conversion Options

TD6
TDV6
TDV8

Considering the prospect of fitting one of the above turbo diesels in a 2004 RR with a tired 4.4 V8- yeah, I'm a masicist... The truck is cheap, the diesels are cheap (except for the TDV8), but does anyone know if they're compatible with NAS spec trucks? If so, what am I looking at? All 3 diesels were offered over the years in Euro L322's, so I imagine from a fitment perspective- they'll all "fit", with the proper engine mounts added to the frame. Any truth to this?

Found several TDV6 conversions into P38's over the pond, but obviously nothing on the L322 (it being a factory option).

I dunno man, but if you score a TDV8 I'll help you stuff it in there.

They should all fit fine as they have LHD L322's with those engine options. Bellhousing to the ZF might be different and obviously ECU wiring harness.

The real hard part is wiring that shit up. Might find a diesel harness and just rewire the entire truck.

Easiest way... buy a beater one here, ship it to England, buy a nice (same color) one with a TDV8 in it and swap numbers, ship it back
