Engine Choices

Looks foreign based on the LPG parts and the funny license plate up front. I didn't think they ever got Bosch V8s from the factory but I'm not much of an afficianado

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the TD5 will get the green light. I PCS from Germany in May and will add a TD5 to my household goods shipment if this turns out to be legit.

If it is legit, I'll convince the wife to ditch the antiques she aquired and we'll see how many we can fit in our household goods.

I've never been charged for being over weight by a few thousand pounds.

Either way, pay the difference and keep the peace.

My concern about the Td5 and the Puma has always been, "what if the 'brain' has a fart?" Who here in the US could reset the darn thing. Especially on the trail, it's not like you could even take the thing to a LR dealership for help.

Just about any good independent shop. Even the enthusiast tool from black-box, the nanocom, supports the TD5 and tdci

Legit concern since the accelerator is a potentiometer. That said the only issue I have experienced was an alarm system lock out based on dead batteries in the seat box and the 10as.

You can import the the engine now, standalone and what you do with it once it's here is up to you. Don't cloud the import issue, this is a "td5" in a import truck, not installing a TD5 truck once it's here...

You can get the diagnostic equipment, service isn't that big a deal as any diesel mechanic can work on it. There's nothing super complicated about them and part are more readier available than 200tdi's.

You can buy a Nanocom. Actually, this is why I prefer newer vehicles. Being able to troubleshoot with a laptop is a lot easier than manually hunting down problems.

$415 standalone, http://www.nanocom-diagnostics.com/v...?productid=150

Most dealers have the software to diagnose and update td5s and pumas.

So I scanned the bar code, and it says 2lrxh02.5dld

I was hoping for an LR part number ;-)

My Snap On Solus scanner can do TD5, so I imagine most independent repair shops that have Snap On scanners can do it.

The definitive response:

Doug,
See below the answer from Land Rover. Also, I don’t think you answered my question as to where the vehicle is that contains this label.

To follow up on my email below, the UK located the certificate for the Busch Gardens Defender and it (the diesel engine) was certified for non-road for the 2001 model year (please see the attached copy of the certificate). This confirms the only instance where a diesel engine was certified and used in a Defender in the U.S., and in this case it was exclusively a non-road application. As I had noted in my earlier email, the last time we certified an on-road Defender was in 1997.

With these facts in mind, we believe the photo of the VECI label is of a forged label.

This I took from an e-mail from Land Rover to their Certification Representative here at the EPA. You see special Defenders were made and certified to Nonroad application specifically for Busch Gardens in Florida. Also, the Engine Family Number starts with “2” which indicates it is for the 2002 model year not 2001 as indicated above.

In your opinion does this mean that a TD5 could legally be imported using the busch gardens certificate (not in a vehicle) for use off road?

From all that we've read and people we've talked to. You can put any engine into a vehicle as long as it is used exclusively off road.
