    Although in all seriousness, now I have realised yours is a 300 i am surprised how close the 2 are, I expected the 300 to be a touch faster just because it’s a smoother engine.

    Also where have you tapped the boost gauge off of? I want to get one....

    I have plumbed into the line. Between the turbo and the actuator.

    How accurate is your speedo?

    Cheers

    Cool thank.

    Not sure, have never compared it to anything, I have a garmin gps I can compare it to at some point though.

    Will see what the garmin says when the speedo is at 100kmh - which SHOULD be 62mph

    Use the "maximum fuel screw Luke"...
    Equivalent of "the force"...Fark the environment!
    More go, lots of smoke...yes!
    You did say you like to play.

    Pinned , ringed, fuel pump tweaked , but when excessive smoke turned back to stop it. Turbo pressure increased to 1.3 bar.

    Am going to increase the turbo to 1.6 bar 24 Psi today . So will see how that goes.

    Cheers

    I know, LOL.

    Not sure if the 300 plus kilos of tools and kit in the back , winch and bumper , plus 285 75 16 tyres make a difference. But mine is much quicker than it was in original set up on pump.

    I reckon you got a good one from std.

    Cheers

    Couple hundred kilos would make a difference though I think.

    Also mine is a soft top so the lightest defender available.

    The back was empty apart from basic toolkit and recovery gear


    Maybe I should check my waste gate isn’t seized :/

    Mate of mine with a Disco same as mine fitted a new factory 300Tdi long engine, VVT ex some Ford, big intercooler, pump tweak, all the good stuff, against my old bog stocker not a lot of difference, couldn't see the value in all the extra financial outlay and all the work, it was better, but just such a little.
    Maybe the 265 tyres knocked the edge off it, I'm on 245's.
