So your 300 tdi is a 2.8 instead of a 2.5? Is that one of the Brazil manufactured engines or a modification? And how does it compare to a 2.5l 300 tdi? Also, (you may have done this on purpose, but) your roof rack is on backwards :)

Hi how’s it going? The engine runs bit better than the 2.5. More torque I feel also has more get up and go.
As for the engine itself it’s a Rovers North 2.8 engine.
Roof rack is on backwards I have a cvtrooftop tent that you enter from the back, and I am going to add lights up top.
Are thinking about the 2.8? Have to say it’s worth
A look.
What are you running? Any pictures of your Defender?
