  1. It is the engine and gearbox from the current Range Rover.
  2. Turbo upgrade

    Lots on Amazon with quick delivery. https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=laser+tachometer&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Alaser+tachometer
  3. No, it will be about investment. Very few will ever be driven. They will be parked in a climate controlled storage area waiting for appreciation in value.
  4. Turbo upgrade

    Check the timing with the drill bit / pin method first. If that is good, them try removing the boost ring.
  5. Turbo upgrade

    Not one tooth out on the cam timing. Certainly possible. Let's just start with a quick check on the injection timing..... Work from easy to hard...
  6. Turbo upgrade

    VDO tachs need to be calibrated. These is a screw in the side that is truned to get it right. The DIP switches only get you in the ballpark. You need to get a photo tachometer or borrow one to measure the actual engine speed and then adjust the tachometer. Yes, it should rev freely until the governor cuts the fuel. This can be a timing issue or a fueling issue. since your EGT go high, it is a timing issue.
  7. Oil temperature thermostat

    It uses a 1/4" female spade connector sideways. Really.....
  8. They have stated the axles are upgraded and the center diff is LSD. I would bet they are not making any profit on these at all. Take a used vehicle. Throw away all parts other than the rolling chassis. Install all new parts. Add on a whole raft of custom made one off parts that are designed and built using factory engineers and factory buying systems. Then hand build the whole thing. The sell price is barely covering their out of pocket cost.

  10. Headlight MOT fail same again or LEDs?

    Yah. They only do one version for right hand drive cars. Their lights have a slanted cutoff on the driver's side, so they do different versions for left and right hand drive. You need to be careful to get the correct one.
  11. Turbo upgrade

    He said earlier they are 235/85.
  12. Turbo upgrade

    Okay. 60 mph in 4th should be 3150 rpm. So either your tachometer is wrong or your gearing is not what you think it is. http://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co.uk/calc/ratio_calc.html
  13. Turbo upgrade

    No, it should happily go higher. You should be able to do 85. I would check your timing first. The stumpy box is offered in early and late style gear configurations. This impacts the fifth gear. What I would suggest is in 4th gear checking your speed at 3000 rpm carefully and report back. 4th is always 1:1, so that will tell us if the tachometer is accurate or not and can also tell us what your 5th gear ratio is. http://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co.uk/manual-gearboxes/short-bellhousing-r380.html

    On a 200TDI, full is supposed to start cutting out at 3800 rpm and make 4100 to 4260 with no load. If it is set right, the power should die at 3800. The 300TDI, they say 4600 at no load, so should be somewhere over 4000 before the fuel cuts out.
