Help with engine swap from 2.4 diesel to 3.9 V8

Recommended Posts

Hello, i recently acquired a 2007 Defender 90 with a broken 2.4 transit diesel inside. I want to convert it to a 3.9 EFi Auto. I have been offered a Discovery project and i was also offered a Range Rover as spares or repair. Both have excellent running gear but i was wondering what i would be best using as a good foundation for swapping as much as possible over? Or would you recommend something else with a 3.9 auto? I want the donor car so i have wiring looms and such like. Let me know what you think.

You'll need a high-pressure petrol pump, might be able to use a later tank.

A 99 Disco 2 would have the 4.0 not the 3.9 wouldn't it? If so that's the one to have* as it's the cross-bolted block. Get the exhaust front half - downpipes, Y-piece, etc. too, and keep the PAS hose on the engine end.

*= Assuming of course the Range Rover isn't also a P38 with a 4.0 or 4.6 in it?
