Series III turobcharger, ...sparewheelholder

Hello,

can someone remember of a turbocharger for the Series III diesel models? -
Any experiences, or a place where to purchase. I've looked at Paddocks's
but didn't find anything. (I think of a combination "ashcroft transmission
upgrade & maybe a turbocharger")

Second does someone know where to get a "holder" for the sparewheel on the
bonnet.

Thanx to all

Norbert

Bonnet one's are like rocking horse shit. If you're in the UK I've got a
back door one somewhere though.

Don't do it !

Waste of money on a 22 + year old engine.

I would estimate the engine life to be measured in minutes after fitting
a turbo.

Fit a 2.5 TD engine complete. Even that won't last very long, they never
did from new !!

Tdi is better option with obvious increase in cost.

Cheapest and easiest option for more power in a series III is to fit a
2.5 petrol engine. Pick them up for less than a turbo and never go
wrong!

Re spare wheel mount on bonnet. There are lots available second hand in
the UK usually complete with bonnet. But don't fit the spare wheel on
the bonnet if you do fit a turbo to the series III engine as you will
get fed up with opening it.

Good luck

I don't remember anyone doing a turbo kit for a Series III. Turner
Engineering do a kit to upgrade the top end I think (might be
petrol only though).

Some parts for the Series II/III spare wheel carrier are still available,
but the kits are obsolete at LR.

Re: Series III turobcharger, ...sparewheelholder

Had a Series 3 with a freight rover engine in it. That seemed to go well. I
am told they bolt in on the same mountings but rev quite a bit higher than
the landy oil burner. also a few more cc. Dont know where you would get hold
of one now though. B more reliable than a 2.25 with a turbo. You may find
you dont need to open the bonnet too much then the spare wheel wont be so
much of an issue..

Regards, Chris.

from a freight rover 300 - plenty of scrap ones around. very similar engine
to the 2.5NAD. Not quite a bolt-in replacement for the 2.25, though, I
don't think.

later freight rovers (400 type) use the 2.5 peugeot in NA and trurbo forms,
and since they also use the R380 gearbox, it's quite likely that they can be
fitted to LRs.

What about the LDV van things? Are they the same/similar?

Agreed. I put in a Transit 2.5DI and it's ideal, if a little torquey. I
could do with an extra gear really.
