300 is 100 more than 200. Just saying.

the 300 is far easier to put ac on, if you have a rhd truck with a disco 200 its not too bad to do either, the defender 200 is a pain in the ass. and the 100 more means nothing they are both 2.5tdis

I have a Rhd. I'm using an LT77 so maybe the 200 tdi is the better choice. Is it a ridiculous job to undertake?

300Tdi is newer than the 200, but even then it's been out of production for 10 odd years.

IMO the 300 is slightly smoother than the 200, slightly less agricultural.

OVer here (UK) 300's are more easily available just because of the sheer number of rusted out discoveries (the disco 300 is exactly the same as a defender type, bar the engine wiring harness... disco 200's have a totally different inlet/exhaust manifold/turbo and front timing chest, which although can be made to fit into a defender, needs considerable faffing about)

The "joy" of the defender spec 200Tdi, is that if you already drive a 2.5 4cyl diesel/petrol, then the 200 will fit straight into the space previously taken by the old 2.5, and bolt up to the gearbox.

IF you want to fit a 300, then (to fit onto an LT77) you'll need to whip the flywheel housing off of the old 2.5 engine and bolt it to the 300, then fabricate some new chassis mounts to bolt the engine too, as the old 2.5/TD ones are different to the 300.

But, bottom line is, you don't need to change the gearbox to an R380 at the same time (although it is a nicer 'box)

How to fit a 300 to an LT77

How to fit a 200Tdi

Both good reading!
