    Its worth finding a defender 200tdi. Hard but well worth it. Even better if you can find one with gearbox still attached

    You can find anything for the right price....

    300tdi seems the better option now days as the 300tdi disco and defender engines are more or less the same

    Its all to do with the exhaust manifold. Defenders is lower i think. James can confirm on this
