gelf Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 currently got a 2.5 petrol in my Defender as a stop gap engine when my N/A diesel gave up...... but bits awful. so the 2 options ive got in my mind are a disco 200 tdi lump or an Isuzu. looking in the auto trader etc i can pick up a Trooper for one hell of a lot less money than a disco with a similar mileage......... iknow some of you will say its wrong to put a jap engine in but i have got to the stage now when i want to put in an engine which is going to last a few years. so what do we think about the isuzu route? most of these seem to have done 120k, so asuming its been maintained... what sort of life expectancy do they have?..... any down sides? all i want is something that will hold 60mph in 5th....and go up an incline without having to search for lower gears. or perhaps i should take the 35's off Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
