    Henry lar, I kid you not, if you ever get chance to drive a good DHSE chipped - ask them let you have a spin!!

    Worst is they say no. Good injectors all set right, good turbo they don’t have HP on paper, but in real life they have enough torque to throw you in any gear. Honest bud ;)

    Mine's a thor. Did drive a couple of gems when I was looking for it but preferred the thor. Seemed smoother to me.

    Go drive a healthy 4.6 and see what ya think ;)

    402nm vs 270nm is a fair whack

    214hp vs 136hp etc etc ;)

    The Derv is good in practice of lumbering around, but not in the perfromance steak, go look at any journalists review, or do a side by side comparison.. ;)

    The Thor was the better 4.0 and had bags of torque over the Gems ;)

    Prolly why it towed so well ;)

    Yeah, it almost feels more torquey low down than the new l322 but I think it's just geared a bit lower.
    Plus, I think the l322 is dropping a cog early because lpg isn't up to scratch. I'll see what it's like towing a decent load on petrol later this week!

    The AJV8 remains my favourite V8 ever it'll dance all over any Range Rover engine when the going gets tough, even my beloved RV8 ;)

    When paired to a well serviced 6hp26 ;) It's unstoppable the best engine combo by far..

    Yup, I'm glad I waited to find one. I saw ones in slightly better condition body and interior-wise but having driven the BMW and jag versions, the jag one is better. I don't think it's hugely quicker but definitely smoother and more refined.
    I know I've got quite a bit of work to do on it but I only paid 3k for it so I've got a bit in hand!

    Jag motor is much better than the M62, better gearbox too ;)

    Once the Jag motor gets into its stide it'll out pull most.. ;)

    flick her into S and bury the pedal ;)

    For the 630 I might even leave the black ones in the bag of midget gems.

    You can repeat it as many times as you like but he'd be mad to turn down a full packet.
