    My first Range Rover Classic Project - '95 County LWB

    Turner Engineering 4.2L with performance cam and gas flowed heads. Now the real fun begins.

    Have fun with the engine rebuild. Are you planning to remap the ecu with the new cam and heads?

    Cheers, Steve

    Great question, from what I read on another solid post on the 14CUX EFI, it sounds like it should be able to self adjust to the mild cam change (the one provided by Turner was right at the limit of what it said the stock program could handle) and other changes (within reason) to intake and exhaust. That said, I'd love to hear what others have found.

    Suspension is mostly done!

    Installed OME springs and shocks along with new bushings, panhard rod, etc.

    I got the ploy bushing kit from AB, but it didn't seem to come with any bushings for the rear A frame... Anyone else have experience with these bushings and top link? It looks like they're part NTC1773, but not sure about the toplink or the self-leveling unit. My truck has been the air suspension removed.

    Up next, engine, transfer case and LSD rear diff...

    With most of the rust remediation and suspension work done, we'll be turning focus to the drivetrain this week... Pulled a compression check on the old engine and they weren't too bad - 125 to 150. Since the new long block was from Turner in England, I get to keep the core and will have a spare

    Plan is to pull the engine, trans, transfer case and rear diff this week. Then we'll begin to rebuild the long block with all new hoses, rebuilt injectors, and other key accessories or anything found to be lacking. From there, install the engine, rebuilt trans, transfer case and LSD rear diff from Ashcroft.

    Wow! The only thing you're missing is a galvy chassis (well EAS, but you've never experienced it...). Great job so far!

    Thanks! I am considering Waxoyl, but since I'm in the South I'm not too worried. On another note, do you have any thoughts on need to do rear A frame bushings as well? I think AB sells them now that I look gain, but only in rubber. I'm thinking... why not, I've come this far.

    Exactly. I was going to say something about the polybush, but didn't want rain on your parade. As your build is to get a reliable daily driver, OEM rubber bush is far better than the poly. Poly is easier to install, but you still need a press. The OEM bushings will outlast the poly, but are a PITA to work.

    Really? That's interesting as everyone seems to talk up poly - AB, etc. I've never heard OEM will last longer, just that they may be softer - which is why I went with medium.

    Thanks for the info. I'm locked in now, but will share my experience. We did have to press them in as you say, so I'm not sure that should deter anyone from OEM.
