Interceptor 5.2

I am going to sale my Interceptor 5.2. I am going to convert to a HS 2.8TGV. (I already have it...it's a beauty) I realize that most people on this site would rather spend their money to go my direction---diesel, but on the chance that you want to spend some money and go with a LR engine that puts out 340hp/360lbs torque then I have the set up for you. The engine/ancillaries, exhaust, Upgraded large bore plenum, GEMS system upgrade, and Carbon Fiber intake only have 12k miles. The LT230 and transmission have 43k on them. I would like to sale this as a complete setup. Below is a list of cost of each item. Engine and other items where installed by ECR ( http://www.eastcoastrover.com/Bailey.html ) All of this is still installed in my truck in case you want a test drive. But in the next few months or so it will be sitting on a crate in the corner.

Upgraded large bore plenum $1650.00, GEMS system upgrade $1875.00, Upgrade to Carbon Fiber intake $225.00, Long Block 5.2 $13500.00, NRP Complete Exhaust $1300.00, LT230 $1550.00, Transmission $1995.00 and Ancillaries/ETC $1650.00 for a grand total of $23745.00 I will take 11k for all of it. This engine will fit into other Rovers. Please pass this around...I really need the money to continue on with my diesel conversion. Shoot me an email for any question.

Why?

Jeromy, I gotta ask.
It sounds like such a great motor with excellent performance, and especially after all the expense to put it in, why take it out? I'm not questioning your personal judgment, just simply curious and truly interested in your opinion based on your experience, so I can have some more information when I have to make the decision to replace my engine (hopefully a long way off).
I'm running a supercharged 4.0 and would still like more power & torque. When my engine goes, I plan to replace it with a supercharged 4.2, built 4.6 or a 5.2 unless I decide to take it to the UK when we move, in that case I'll swap in a TDI solely based on the price of petrol there.
Hella nice rig by the way.

Well that is a good question and it is a wonderful engine, but I did not put it in. The previous owner did. I bought the truck with it already installed with the intent of taking it out and swapping it to a diesel. I figured that I could get enough money from the engine to do the swap. The engine runs great and on a recent trip of over 800 miles returned a little better than 15mpg...pretty much unheard of for a NAS 90, plus I had plenty of power to take all the hills...never got below 75. This truck will easily do that and more. I have no idea of "how fast it is" but I can tell you that I can easily smoke a New Dodge truck with a 360 in it...no much of a race, but way better than my other d90 would do.

As stated on the RPi Engineering site by Mike ( The 4.6 Stage III we put into the 1995 NAS Defender 90 Station Wagon now has plenty of break-in miles on it, and we took it to the track today. Stock 3.9 in this 90 ran 12.5 seconds 0-60 The 4.6 ran a best time of 7.78 seconds 0-60 this morning! Wow! http://www.rpiv8.com/comments-engine.htm ) So I would imagine it would be better than that.

A copy of this thread has been made in General Tech section and you should continue the technical debates there, however, please feel free to post here should you have questions for Jeromy regarding the item's sale.

Thanks!

Jeremy,
Did you ever consider selling the truck with the motor? You would get a great price, then buy a truck with an older motor and perform the conversion.

I for one would be interested in the 5.2 as a whole !!

Who supplied the parts for the 2.8 conversion?

What do you expect to spend when all is said and done?

Thanks,

Matt
