gn3dr Posted July 28, 2006 Share Posted July 28, 2006 Hi I have a '73 standard Range Rover which I am planning to do a few mods to. I am going to convert to fuel injection (probably Megasquirt) and was also looking at changing the box for a 5 speed for more relaxed cruising. (It is really only used on the road at the moment). I was planning on buying a complete 5 speed injection Range Rover for parts) The current 4 speed is working fine. But.......I read in the technical archive on here that people were recommending fitting an overdrive to the 4 speed rather than changing to a 5 speed but I'm not sure if this was in reference to the person fitting a diesel 5 speed (are the diesel vs. petrol ratios different?) I'm also not sure if this was based on suitably for off-road or on-road driving. So I'm asking the question here for clarification - what's the best route to take and why - should I fit an overdrive to the current 4 speed or is it better to change the complete box for a 5 speed. Appreciate your inputs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
