v8 disco to 300tdi

i have a 2000 disco. i want to change it out for a 300tdi. i know you have to change out the tranny. but what else? wiring harness, computer, mounting brackets for tranny, stuff like that. i have pulled engines in pre-computer cars. not sure how hard this would be. thanks.

Well, you have a disco II, so there was never a factory fitment of a 300Tdi into it (all DII's would have been Td5). Aside from pointing that out, I have nothing to contribute.

Mosey on over to Discoweb. There's a person there who did an Izuzu 2.8 conversion in a DII.
