I got the same email. That?s a significant savings! Unfortunately, I just spent all my money on an Ashcroft ZF auto tranny, but maybe some day I?ll be able to mate it up to this engine.
Our's is a bad example because we pulled the truck all the way apart with chassis and bulkhead repairs,galvanizing, bulkhead removal, 8 point external cage, brake and drivetrain upgrades, and all tricked out suspension, as opposed to just doing a conversion. That said had a custom exhaust made and mounted yesterday and will have the body lowered back on the chassis shortly.I'd like to see someone that has not needed to take 1000 hours, 6 months and $20000 to show a conversion. Lots of people saying they are doing it and not seeing anyone driving one.
Well full disclosure then. I work for heritage Driven... not a sales person and this is in no way trying to advertise.... just posting info.I'd like to see someone that has not needed to take 1000 hours, 6 months and $20000 to show a conversion.

What do you want to hear? I can tell you more than you ever want to know.I'd just like to see, hear read reviews on the Land Rovers that are on the road with this engine, regardless of whether its an automatic or stick.
I've been studying on it. Would be a good engine package. Trying to figure out if it'll bolt up to the later Mopar 6 speed manual transmission. I think that would be a good setup in a series. At that point, you are looking at using a Forbyn transfer case which is pricey but might as well cut the crap.has anyone looked into dropping one of these into a series rover?
Yes - working with another company on the second 2.8 we have to go into a S2 109 Dormobile bodied build. I think it would be a great setup for the owner who wanted all the aesthetics of a Series truck but the ease of maintenance and "any driver in the family' usability of the R2.8 mated to an auto-box.has anyone looked into dropping one of these into a series rover?
what he saidDoug, does changing the fore aft position change the basic shape of the mount or just the position of where the mount goes? With that said the truck you are currently building seems like it would be popular way to go with 6L80E and Marks adapter. Would that be something you would make a run of mounts for interested parties? As I've watched this build you are doing and seen the quality of the parts you are using, I think you would have a good market willing to buy a kit that included the additional parts to perform a 2.8 swap.
