Experience the amazing power and low speed torque of our 2.8 liter remanufactured 300 Tdi Diesel engine with the fitting kit for a Defender 300 Tdi application.

Built from a Genuine Land Rover 300Tdi core, this motor will transform the performance of your Land Rover with an awesome 277 lbs ft torque at only 1400 rpm! With bigger pistons and a variable turbo, our engine produces 24 more horsepower (a 21.6% improvement at 200 less rpm!) and 82 more lbs ft of torque (a 42% improvement at 400 less rpm!) than the original 300 Tdi.

Our engine manufacturer starts with a used 300Tdi cylinder block, which is subjected to a rigorous overhaul process involving a special acid bath to remove any internal rust deposits. The 2.5 liter 300 Tdi block is then rebored to 2.8300 liters and comes with all new parts including a new variable geometry turbocharger, cylinder head, injectors, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, timing case, timing gears.

Assembly required! This is an engine kit. For compliance reasons the turbo with manfolds is supplied as a separate part. We include a complete assembly guide and all the necessary bolts, washers, gaskets, etc.

This Engine is not certified for use in California.

NOTE: This motor may be used in many applications. This part number includes a fitting kit for Defenders originally equipped with 300 Tdi engines (not pictured). Contact us for more information.
