I'm not having any problems with my K series 1.8 except that it's a touch underpowered. I'm looking for a good solid alternative - even from another manufacturer - with a lot more power.

Does anyone know of any alternative engines which will fit?

for the 1.8 PTP do a

140bhp kit (This is what my wifes 1.8 has fitted to it)

160bhp kit

190bhp kit

but cost vary

I looked at fitting the Honda/Rover V6 and the Rover Tomcat 2.0lt turbo engine but never got far

A friend of mine has a Rover with a shot body and a 1.8 Freelander with a dodgy engine. With so much comonality between Freelander/Rover/Honda it ought to be quite fun ... but knowing him, he'll get confused and he'll end up trying to drive a rusty Rover 1.8 car with a blown head gasket...

:rolleyes:

... and there'll be a good but engineless Freelander and a turbo engine in his back garden for the next ten years ...

Cheers

I have heard of a few freelander breakers mainly V6 amazingly enough

Don't think this will much use to Virgin4x4 Jules. He is a cockroach :D (as we call them in Queensland) . He is from NSW (New south Wales to you lot. Ok that is where Sydney is , down south :) )

So bit of a far trip to take his truck to Coventry

Ah well now if he had filled in his profile... :rtfm:
