  2. I think this is an interesting thread to see people's thoughts on the subject. I don't think there are any personal attacks here. It's your Land Rover and if you like a modification plus think it drives better then great. I like to annoy purists by daring to have the white lettering facing the OUTSIDE of my tyres As an entirely separate point, I would be interested to see some data just out of idle curiosity.

  3. Tdi Twin Inlet Tuned Manifold. These manifolds are individually tuned on a flow bench to maximise and balance the flow of air to the inlet ports on the cylinder head. Each manifold is fine tuned to give a balanced air flow across all ports Now I am confused, they chop off and blank the original pipe from the intercooler and add two new ones to the side. Where/how do they tune and balance the flow?? If they grind out the inlet ports that won't do anything as the cylinder head ports will not match?

  4. I think this would be really interesting tbh

  5. I don't think anyone in the thread is having a dig at you. If anything Snagger is digging at the sellers of untested 'performance' equipment. There's clearly a lot of skepticism around this product, the only/best way to prove what your seat is telling you is for the rolling road test. That said, no one is denying that the car may feel better and, if anything, that's more important than peak power on a day to day basis. If the car is appreciably smoother, then you're onto a winner - I think most people's objection is that these are sold on the basis of unsubstantiated performance claims.

  6. I'm surprised these manifolds haven't appeared on here before, they've been around a few years. I had a short conversation with the bloke that sells/makes them once, and he was talking utter garbage regarding how they worked. They are going to do nothing for performance. However, it's interesting regarding the "feeling smoother" part, as altering the shape of the manifold will have an effect on felt/heard intake resonance. That can certainly determine how an engine feels.

  8. I am currently not in the UK so can't take a photo in situ. One bracket goes into the sill top with a support leg into the already rivnutted hole (both shown in red). The rear support attaches at a 90 degree onto the outrigger where the fuel tank is mounted (in blue). Maybe need to chop the 90 degree on off and bolt a bracket to it like @landroversforever says. Idk. Was hoping for an easier solution! 😓

  9. @Chicken Drumstick I am not into the engineering or science of which a lot of people are arguing, but am also sceptical about the improvement it can provide in term of power. However I do believe in what you are saying about improvement in engine smoothness. When I refined some of the pipe work and fitted a bitter intercooler into my 200tdi disco engined 90, apart from more power, it definitely felt better low down and smoother running. Yes supposedly more turbo lag, but I didn't find this either on this or my vw tdi which I had in a van and put loads more pipework and a silly big interc

  10. Certainly no dig on my part - if you're happier with the vehicle post fitting it, then money well spent. Just saying that if it does work as advertised then the manufacturer should be in a position to publish evidence of that - if they aren't, then they've no way to be sure they are advertising honestly, and also if they did test properly it's quite likely they'd be able to improve the product!

  11. This. I have nothing against the new Defender, only that it's not a Defender replacement, but a more rugged looking/behaving Range Rover/Discovery. Like some of the offroad packs with extra plastic bits etc you can get for other 4x4s.

  12. Could you drill and rivinut the chassis to have a bolted connection for the bracket rather than a welded one?

  13. The mind is good at playing tricks for sure. A few years ago I oiled up my throttle cable as it was getting a bit stiff. The car immediately felt more responsive and powerful, the reality being I just needed less force with my right foot to achieve it!

  14. Now, not to judge whether this thing is helping or hindering or doing nothing, but my 2p's worth; It's fairly well known that humans are terrible at judging performance upgrades like this - often you can make changes that hurt performance but actually make the thing feel (or sound) "better" or sportier and people will be absolutely convinced it's made an improvement. Loud exhausts are the classic, a lot of them hurt performance as many of them are just thrown together to look shiny and sound sporty and it's a huge factor in how drivers perceive the performance. I've seen it 1st

  15. I’ve seen a few here now on the motorways. Contrary to what some said, I still think it’s as ugly in the flesh as on screen. I haven’t seen the interior first hand yet, but that’s the bit I generally don’t mind.

  16. Because proper testing produces quantifiable data that undermines placebo effect and BS sales claims!

  18. While I approve of the general silliness of it I can't bring myself to like the Chelsea tractor / chequebook aspect, but you do you. Given that money clearly isn't an issue why not a more modern LS and do away with the clockwork?

  19. Cracked while launching......? So, what's the projected BHP, with and without NOS/supercharger? I am quite sure many people on here will dislike this truck, but I for one think it is pretty cool. Mind you, you haven't shown the interior yet, it might be all vajazzled!
