Bingo.

Which is why I'm even considering it an option for my 93 LWB.

No offense but if you balk at 11.5 for a diesel disco I seriously doubt you will ever convert your LWB to diesel...There is a 300TDI and rebuilt automatic on the forum right now for sale. Buy it for 6000, pay to ship it or drive and get it. Then you will need to source the rest of the parts needed (radiator, intercooler, hoses, mounts, fuel filter housing, modify fuel pump etc....). Then, if you are able to do the labor yourself, you might come close to my asking price. And that's if you are going to stay automatic. If you wish to go with a manual transmission set up there are a whole other list of items such as a pedal box.

I'm used to it...seems one can't sell a diesel disco without the thread turning into a conversation about the value of a diesel vehicle..."will you ever make up for the cost in fuel saving?" If you have to ask that question, you have obviously never driven a diesel Land Rover. There is just something about it!

Regardless...I'm open to offers on this so if you are interested, hit me up.

Frank, I'm not balking at your asking price at all.

If any thing, this has stirred my interest even more to convert my LWB to tdi.

I know of the motor you spoke of, and I also chatted with David in Atlanta via email today.
David basically told me he could get me a 3ootdi, all the install necessities, and a ZF, shipped to me for 5k.
My LWB is virtually rust-free, but doesn't look that great because the clearcoat is peeling in places(Ardennes Green).
I can do the install myself while calling on some buddy favors.

I think it could be a worthwhile endeavor.

Thanks Dro, but I decided I would have to keep it Rover for simplicity sake.

I forgot to include a couple good pictures! For some reason I can't get one of the photo's right side up

I will also throw in a nice set of 4 Freestyle wheels for your 265's and a nearly new oversize tire cover from Rover's north for your 265 spare...

Frank, thats worth every bit of what you are asking if it is something that somebody was considering doing. Are the diesels worth it…well, thats just for the individual taste as they are priced to reflect the rarity. It is what it is.
I get more just to convert, never mind the donor vehicles original issue if any……. and can't get it done fast enough to keep people happy. In fact I am sending a link for this to several of my customers who are waiting.
RR's are cool, but have you tried to buy any of the little nagging things lately……window seals……door lock parts….any interior trim (not the big bits but the bits that are always broken)….. Most RRC's are like a Disco in an old worn dress that you can't find matching buttons for and every time you get comfortable, another button falls off.

------ Follow up post added December 10th, 2013 05:30 AM ------

The dress reference was due to my initial opinion of a Disco as an RRC in drag.

Thanks for passing the link to others Matt. I was honestly wondering if I'm way off on my asking price...the good thing is that if I don't sell it I've still got a fantastic diesel disco!

How's the electrical situation in it? Other than door locks not working. Is the wiring still neat and tidy? I've heard of people making a mess out of the wiring when doing the swap to a tdi.

The wiring looks like it would from the factory. Again, this was professionally done, not 3 men, 3 cases of beer, and 3 weeks of piecing things together! The locks worked perfectly until the A/C was installed. The only reason that I can figure that that locks don't work now is because the ECU was removed after the diesel swap as I figured it was not needed anymore. Well, when we installed the A/C, it would appear that the ECU was needed to activate the compressor. Since I did not have one anymore, my mechanic used a different relay, which I assume had something to do with the door locks and now they don't work.

As far as I'm concerned, I would rather have an air conditioner than door locks..seeing as I seldom lock the doors anyway so I never messed with trying to figure it out. The only other thing that I can think of that doesn't work is the cruise control and that is because we never tried to hook it up.

Same here; havent locked my doors in years but I suspect my Classic might have ECU/AC interconnect as well (though not door locks).

Does the truck still have the little, prone to water corrosion, central locking ecu that also serves as an ignition cut? I freaking hate that thing.

The only ECU we removed was the 14cux ecm for the 4.2 I was running prior to the diesel swap...figured I had no need for it
