I'm sure they drive nice. But if you get 17 mpg, you might as well get an LS and enjoy 400 hp.
Yeah he was asking150K on Instagram for it. Hes delusional asking that much for an unrestored hacked together setup. You can have a shop put together a purpose built kit for that much. I guess he thinks its worth it from looking at trucks from shops who actually do these things properly. At end of day something is worth what someone is willing to pay.Haha! They offer a 12 year car loan to purchase it, yikes!
Running with the defender speedometer buried, turning 2900 +/- rpm, I got 21-22 across Kansas and Eastern Colorado. I had to get to the Denver airport to meet the owner we'd done the conversion for, so was running hard, very hard, over 80. Driving it 10-15 mph slower would make a large impact on mpg. Gearing, tire size have a great deal to do with mpg.The cummins Disco was getting in the high teens, correct? It’d be interesting to hear real world mileage— I’m guessing 20 or below based on what I’ve heard so far, but I am interested as the 2.8 is on the table for my next build...but not at those levels. I’m hoping it’s considerably more...
