We’ve read a forum post. It’s crazy.
Take a Series 3 88, with a 2.25l Diesel engine (rice pudding skins; quake ye not in fear) and add a 200Tdi engine.
Fair enough, we thought, seems like a sensible upgrade, reasonable on a cost basis, acceptable on a performance level, a good all-round compromise. Shake and serve in a martini glass. Cushti.
Or there’s ‘Bi Compound Charging’ to add a few horsepower.
Simply add 30 years of engineering experience, superchargers, turbo-chargers, intercoolers and charge coolers, and turn the 2.5l Land Rover engine into something approaching a 7 litre power-house.
We started by asking the question ‘But… why?’
We realised that this was the wrong question.
Failing to find anything more suitable, we settled on the age-old favourite;
‘What’ll it do, Mister?’*
