You will need an Isuzu clutch cover and the plate and release bearing from a Range Rover. A modified flywheel input bearing for the engine too.

Use all the turbo pipesfrom the isuzu as it makes a much neater job on the cheap. If you havent already got them you will need to make some engine mounts too.

I can't think of anything else off the top of my head but will be happy to help with any questions.

I am sure if you speak to Jez (dollythelw) he will help you too. He is an Isuzu into Rangie god.

keep a look out for potential radiator hose pipe posibilities.

Possibly an electric fan.

I made the izusu throttle cable fit, but I seen it done with a RR throtle cable.

Now would be a good time for a cam belt change if your engine has a cam belt.
