This conversion is based on the Ford Mustang 2.3 litre ‘EcoBoost’ engine. The engine features direct injection and variable turbo-charging to give a wide torque spread and useful power output at higher rpm. 307 bhp and 432 Nm give excellent fast road performance in the Defender chassis. The engine can be installed with the existing manual gearbox, or with the JE 6-speed automatic unit. In either case the full four-wheel-drive capability is retained. The most remarkable thing about this conversion is how smooth, quiet, and refined it feels compared to the original Diesel engine.

 

The conversion is available on 2.2 and 2.4 litre Puma Diesel Defenders, and also Defenders with the previous TD5 (2.5 litre) engine. When the 2.3 GDiT engine is fitted to a ‘TD5’ Defender and a manual gearbox is required, a reconditioned Ford 6 speed manual gearbox is installed and the old 5-speed Rover gearbox is removed.

 

When installing the engine in a Puma Defender but retaining the manual gearbox, it may be advisable to get the gearbox reconditioned if it has high mileage, this can be priced on request.

 

We recommend installing the excellent JE suspension package along with the engine conversion.

The prices for the conversion depend on what the original vehicle is and what features are required.
